I've never understood the "eat so much you'll wish you were dead" thing.
 
2012-10-05 07:32:27 AM

Pinko_Commie: Tealeaf: Thank you for your answers. I did realize, however, that the toast and fried bread wasn't shown. In the article they describe "rounds of toasts". So I wondered if that were British for "round toast" or rather "pieces of toast".

A round of toast is a nondeterminate number of slices. Some people say one slice of bread, some say two, some say as many pieces as will fit in your toaster and some say as many as you have in one serving.


Ah. So the "eight rounds of toast" refered to in the article means "eight of however many pieces of bread they could shove into their toast at that particular time." Thanks, I wouldn't have guessed that on my own.

kingoomieiii: 8.50 pounds? Not a bad price for breakfast for four people.


Exactly what I was thinking.
 
2012-10-05 07:39:56 AM

Tealeaf: Black pudding. Some sort of blood sausage, right? Is their toast really round? What is the fried bread fried in, butter, lard, or wesson oil? Do they supply salsa for the eggs?

So many calories, so many questions.


More like just fried blood (with some thickeners). Tasty on bread.
 
2012-10-05 07:40:01 AM

Tealeaf: I would use ketchup for some of the items on that breakfast. Steak sauce not so much. But eggs without salsa would just make me sad. But I would get over it.


You eat fried eggs with salsa? WTF? Does not compute.

So, the person who eats it fastest gets £250...and last year they raised £200 for charity...hmmm. Does this mean they're going to charge charity £50 to make up the short fall?

aevorea: Mad Scientist: Capt. Sparkles: Mad Scientist: Mmmmm, English breakfast in Ireland.

[farm7.staticflickr.com image 640x478]

I assume the whiskey is already in the coffee and splashed on the beans?

Brilliant!

I had just come from the Jameson distillery...

The one in Middleton? I have an "official whiskey taster" certificate from them. I was forced to try three different types of whiskey - oooo what a lot to ask!

I seriously miss the orange juice and fried potato bread, though - best damn orange juice I've ever had, and I live in the Sunshine State for 15 years.


Yes, that one. I enjoyed the tour, but the tasting afterwards was especially pleasant.
I came away from the gift shop with far more trinkets than I had planned. Almost the only souvenirs I purchased in Ireland.

It's all eggs bacon beans and a friiiiied slice.

I had a 'gargantuan feast' from Cora's breakfast and lunch last sunday.

2 eggs (sunny side up)
hashbrowns (real pieces of potato not those pattie things)
4 strips of bacon
1 slice of ham
Beans
2 breakfast sasusages
Cretons
2 slices of toast
and a bunch of fresh fruit
oh yeah and a single crepe


/yeah that's right 4 different preparations of pig
 
2012-10-05 08:31:00 AM
I might be able to eat that as my sole meal for the day if I had a big ol bottle of Tabasco to slather on it

but I'm not sure even Tabasco could save that disgusting looking mess

If I'd had more money on me that day, I would have been in the same situation. As it was, I bought a whiskey glass there. My only other souveniors were a glass jewelry box from the Waterford Crystal factory (very neat tour, btw) and a Celtic cross and claddagh ring, each picked up at random little small shops in the middle of nowhere.

The roads were a huge adjustment - not the direction, but rather the smaller ones on the very edge of a freakin' huge sheer cliff. We rented a little cottage and were always back before dark because we didn't want to deal with driving on that road at night.

How does one say "oink, oink" in British?
 
2012-10-05 08:39:35 AM
The British do breakfast right. That being said you should really share that between two or, preferably, three people. Probably won't need lunch that day as well.

I was there with my family- Mother and sister went through the Waterford factory tour while my brother and I visited the Waterford Harley-Davidson dealership down the road. Turns out Irish hog riders look the same as American ones. (Well, maybe slightly less fat, but the same scraggly facial hair, pony tails, and leather.)

this. share this with with your whole fam youre good to go.

altho even by sausage standards those are incredible penisy looking.


Yup, you can even see the foresking half rolled back there...


It's because they're really cheap, bad sausages which have probably then been deep fried. You couldn't really expect quality when you'e getting 8 of them and everything else for £8.50 though.

Well, the British are leading the European obesity statistics. Obesity percentage double that of France.

/Although it's probably more a "fried mars bar" thing than breakfast pudding

Great, I had frigging muesli and a banana for breakfast. Now I'm hungry again.

never had blood pudding, but would give it a shot.

Beans, however, have no place on a breakfast plate.

That looks yummy, but I can't get past the blood sausage. The thought is just too repulsive.
 
2012-10-05 09:19:34 AM
There's a restaurant in mid-Michigan near Frankenmuth called Tony's. You order "eggs and bacon" for breakfast, and you get as many eggs and as many rashers of bacon the cook feels like giving you. It sounds awesome, but after you're finished, your mouth and tongue are so swollen from all the salt that you can't talk.

Tony's

robohobo: I see neither bacon nor hash browns. I see ham and fried potato triangles, though.


Seige101: I see ham on that plate but no delicious bacon!


It IS bacon, just got a lot more meat than you would get in American bacon - that looks like the fatty cut-offs of British bacon.

Are they mini black puddings?

At our campsite over the weekend I think I fed 8 people with little more than what's on that plate in a Dutch oven.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. Also, salsa on a baked potato is awesome (and a lot healthier than butter, cream, cheese, bacon, etc.)

What Americans call bacon, us Brits call steaky bacon (it's pork belly bacon).

What us Brits call bacon, the Americans call Canadian bacon (it's back bacon)

It's back bacon, which is what you generally get when you ask for bacon in the UK:

I think the default bacon in the US is what we'd call streaky bacon:

Pork belly, rather than loin, and a much higher fat:meat ratio.

stoli n coke: Never understood the baked beans with breakfast. Between that, the eggs, and the coffee, aren't you setting yourself up for a gastric tornado?


English breakfast of baked beans, roast tomatoes, and English muffin was the best ever when we were in Europe. Everywhere else the standard is pastries and/or processed meats. It is kind of like Migas here in Texas: eggs mixed with corn tortilla strips and tomato salsa, served with refried beans. But savory not spicy...

Pinko_Commie: What us Brits call bacon, the Americans call Canadian bacon (it's back bacon)


Which is funny because what Canadians call bacon Americans also call bacon.

It's kind of like if we were to start calling salsa 'american ketchup' or something.

Deedeemarz: Everywhere else the standard is pastries and/or processed meats.


Meat is pretty rare at the breakfast table in Germany. Usually you get slices of bread (or rolls) and some spread (jam, preserves, nutella). Maybe a boiled egg.
Ham and soft cheese is a bit more likely in the Northern parts, though. The usual US cornflake brands are quite popular, too. As is Muesli, for those into that kinda thing.

Sounds a bit spartan, but then lunch is the main meal, not dinner, so there's less need for something to last you all day.
 
2012-10-05 10:45:01 AM
I do love me an English Breakfast. I consider myself fortunate that I've found some places in Massachusetts that serve it - they just call it an Irish Breakfast here. Because fark England, that's why!
