Kahabut: Flint Ironstag: Kahabut: Flint Ironstag: jaytkay: Is "bacon sandwich" a common menu item in the UK?

Nobody in the US says, "Breakfast? Great, I'll bring the bacon sandwiches!"

Bacon & egg, yep. Bacon lettuce tomato, yep. Simply bacon? Nope.

/ Implausible story is implausible.
// I expect better quality racism from a prestigious paper like the Mail

Yes, it is a common item. A "bacon sarnie" would be a very common thing to suggest for a work breakfast or lunch snack. Fried bacon in two slices of bread, a bun or french stick, with ketchup or HP sauce...

/Damn, now I'm hungry...

I was with you until you said Ketchup.  I'm not sure what HP sauce is, so you get a pass there... but you would dare to put ketchup on bacon?  Foul, that is just simply foul.  (unless ketchup is something totally different over there)

No, ketchup is ketchup. The biggest brand is Heinz and it's the exact same thing. HP Sauce is brown ('Brown sauce' is the generic name, HP is a brand) and has a bitter, acidic, taste. It's good on chips (fries) etc, though I prefer mayonnaise on my fries. But that's more a Belgian thing.

Hmm, still think that's foul.  Mayo on fries though, I can get down with that.

/I sound fat


According to Wikipedia Brown sauce is similar to Steak sauce in the US. And it even mentions it is common to use on bacon sandwiches.

What exactly would you expect British food to be? Of course it sucks!

I'm Canadian, and proudly addicted to HP sauce since I as a toddler. My mother told me that I, at the age of four, once asked the waitress at the Woolworths cafe for HP to enjoy with a sugar doughnut.

HP is a staple in Canadian grocery stores, which is appropriate because it comprises its own major food group. There is no comparison with steak sauces, particularly such pap as A1 sauce. As a Canadian living in the US, much of my free time is spent foraging for HP sauce. It is more rare than truffles. I have occasionally chartered a Learjet to fly back to Canada to pick up a bottle. Some things are just worth the extra effort.

The HP company pays me consulting fees to ensure they maintain the subtle nuances and quality of their sauce. Well, not really but they should.

Next time you're in LA the Laurel Canyon Country Store has a section of English food including HP sauce.

/And Mars bars, Tetley tea, Marmite etc.

ACunningPlan: bmihura: TV's Vinnie: bmihura: Enough with the UK links.

Apparently, the Daily Mail pays Drew a sh*ton of euros to keep the links flowing.

THE SPICE LINKS MUST FLOW!

OK, that makes sense. Fark would be so much better without all the UK links though.

I'm offended by that statement. It suggests the UK links are inferior; that by being inclusive of UK links, the superior quality of Fark is being diluted or somehow tainted, and thus the UK links should be kept out of Fark to preserve it's purity.


You gotta admit we were living in high cotton when similar sort of weird poutrage tales were coming from Mainichi Wai Wai. God I miss those links.

If only they sold proper UK made Coca Cola in cans. I just cannot drink US Coca Cola. The Mexican Coke is better, but not quite the same.

Prolly UK Coca Cola contains HP sauce. That would account for the improved taste.
