Burns Night tonight, sleet falling, so what could be better than a floory mornin' roll and Scottish bacon, a dash of brown sauce and a slice of tomato?
My friend Rachel is the world's greatest maker of bacon sandwiches, and she would argue that this here roll should ideally be replaced by chunky slices of toast, and most days, I would completely concur. But today my sons have been sent off to school in their tartan scarves and smallest breakfastboy is being forced to repeat his performance from the Burns Competition that he took part in before Christmas. Much to his disgust. There are kilts a go-go out in Glasgow today, despite the weather, and so it has to be Scottish all the way. No recipe required, just a frying pan and a knife. And look at my pretty new plate. It could probably do with something a little more elegant than a bacon butty for its first outing, but never mind.
I leave you with this - Shirley Henderson reading Robert Burns' Dusty Miller which seems a suitably breakfastaceous ditty for Breakfast Week.
Yum! I've recently started frying one side only of each slice of bread and putting the bitty together with the fried side inwards, next to the bacon. Yep, it's a detail, but you end up with a soft bread sandwich with a crispy bacon and bread middle - it's sooooo delicious! Hope you had a great Burns Night!ReplyDelete
I mean BUTTY, not bitty.ReplyDelete
LOL. And thank you. I didn't even bother trying to persuade the kids to eat haggis - life's too short. I like your blue-sky thinking on the bacon butty. Will give that a try.Delete
Nice plate! Is it a loner, or did it come with partners? :-)ReplyDelete
Have you tried those toastabags (whatever they are called) from Lakeland? Do they work?
No. But I have a sandwich toaster - one of those gadgets that sit gathering dust in a cupboard mostly.Delete
Oh, baps! Have you ever made baps? I suddenly remembered about baps! I used to love them! Have to go and check out Elizabeth D now!ReplyDelete
No I haven't but must definitely give it a try. These were actually what is termed in Scotland a 'morning roll' but it's more or less the same thing.Delete
The plate came in a set of 4 from TK Maxx, so cheap as chips.
