funny thing is, right? That plateful is MILES better for your body, than the calorific equivalent in doughnuts, if you *gasp* exercise. (this one weird trick that will make the fat just literally melt away!)

That's right, that 'orrible plate of british fat and protein is actually healthier for you than doughnuts. (but not if you live like an average american)
 
2014-03-20 10:11:51 AM  
oh and by the way doughnuts are not the latest American food craze sweeping Britain

lol. so farking patronising! like we sit hunched over our little flickering, black and white, cathode rayTVs, marvelling at the glossy, shiny things! bring me nylons! bring me chocolate!

i may be over reacting a bit

That trip must have sucked ass.

Being walking distance to a pub no matter where you were and the beer were some of the best things.  If I could rate all the things about at trip to Britain in order, where the higher the number the better, the breakfasts would get about a -2.  But I guess YMMV on that...I'm in Texas and our breakfasts are epic (and heart-stopping).

The big chart from the Brits:

So they're not gaining on us.  I did a quick look but didn't see good data on rates of morbid obesity-- my gut (ha!) feeling is that there are a lot of 'regular fat' people abroad, but America has way more of the so-fat-it-looks-like-a-dare people.

Damn, that's astounding.  Maybe I live in a thinner part of the country.  I love to eat, but hate to diet so I just take a .5 mile walk every day and I can eat whatever I want with no consequences.

1) Seriously.  Do you think the brits eat that all that often?  That kind of fry up is pretty damn rare.   Also, the bubble and squeak is not usually included.
2) It actually IS healthier than a donut so...there's that.
3) If, like a donut, the brit is getting their breakfast out, they probably walked a mile or more to go get it.  Fast.  For fark sake those people walk fast.

Most american donuts are obtained via a drive thru window.  BECAUSE GETTING OUT OF YOUR CAR AND GOING INSIDE TO CONSUME A 1000 CALORIE PASTRY IS TOO ENERGY INTENSIVE.

Is this based on BMI?  Because there are a lot of things wrong with BMI - most Olympians are considered overweight going by BMI.

Notice that a lot of the thinner European countries are self reporting.  That could be an example of a bunch of Swiss Cartmen's telling the guy collecting the data that they are husky, not fat.

it's a leftovers dish, officially. you need cooked potates (any style), cooked greens (anything), an egg and onions. scrunch up the potatoes a bit if they're in large bits, don't fully mash them though. chop the greens.

fry onions, and then tip out and mix with the potatoes, greens and a beaten egg. sppon back into the frying pan and press down into a sort of patty.

fry until brown and crispy.

feed into your face

so good. use butter for frying

variations:

use sweet potatoes (drool)
add chopped fried pancetta

From TFA:

"Michelin-star-worthy doughnuts at the Harwood Arms in Fulham, where the kitchen serves up golf ball-sized goodies to be dipped in apple compote and sour cream."

Sounds like beignets to me - can hardly blame the U.S. for those.

That's an apple fritter, not a donut.

Are we going to argue the origin of a doughnut . . . ?
First came from Nederlands . . .
Called an oily cake.

Either way, I know the difference between a good breakfast and something that will kill you.
First thing in the morning, something with healthy fibers and grains . . .
versus
A bunch of low fiber grease.
Which do you want?

Give me bacon!!


Bacon it is!

Mushrooms on an oreo cookie? Wtf?


Since there seems to be some confusion...

Starting with the egg and going clock wise, this plate contains the following:

1) 1 egg over medium (poached if its fancy)
2) rasher bacon  (think salt cured ham)
3) Fried white mushrooms (in oil.  no idea why they never use butter for this)
4) Black Pudding - (pork fat, onions, salt, pepper, oat meal) ...did I forget pork blood?  Yeah.  It has pork blood too.
5) bubble and squeak (already explained in this thread)
6) beans - these aren't sweet.  they're usually heinz and they're in a kind of tomato sauce.  Not nearly as bad as you think they would be for breakfast.
7) bangers - sausage links.  However, in almost every way in which taste and texture can be measured, I find bangers to be inferior to even store bought breakfast links stateside.    I can't tell if this is because of my expectation of what they should taste like based on how they look, or because they are genuinely not as good, or if its just a matter of simple preference.  What I can say for certain is that they taste nothing like what you think they should taste like if you are an american.

Black pudding is what most people flip out about.  Its actually a damn pragmatic dish that came about because pork fat was easily rendered and stored and you could extract pork blood without killing the pig.  Voila, a meaty tasting dish that resulted in no dead animals!  PETA BE PRAISED!

Its actually damn tasty, if a bit dry.  I like mixing it up with my egg.  Goes well with a nice cuppa.
