Dahl is good in a ramekin with an egg on the top sprinkled with a tad of cheese, into the oven all bubbly then fresh corander and chilli sambal on the top!

I am with Charlie on this if I get a takeaway I always order Dahl and have it cold in the morning when it has solidified. Or black pudding eggs and sliced cured ham. Used to be an espresso and a roll-up but those days are long gone.

Hog's pudding no, how is that different?

Tea, definitely essential - don't like fruit juice as well, personally, they don't go together. It has to have bacon & sausage (thought they went without saying but maybe not). Chips - not with a fry-up, that's too much altogether.

I do like that element of sweetness to balance up the plate, hence selkirk bannock (aka fruit pudding) and/or apples; I hear the Yanks sometimes serve grape jelly.

We only eat the Full English when we go down to Torremolinos to visit DH's bestie. There's a place called Bobby's (and gosh I hope it's still there) that does 2 eggs however you like, grilled tomato, mushroom, beans, toast, rashers, and sausage. I always ask for chips instead of beans because I've never cared for beans on toast. Costs about 8 Euros and whatever you drink with it is free. They offer a Half English, too, with only one of everything! The train leaves here at 7.20 so by the time we get there at 11 or so we're both starving and wade into it with cries of joy, having looked forward to it all the way down to the coast.

I love Irish White Pudding and Black Pudding too. Have you ever tried Hog's Pudding, gille? We used to be served that for breakfast when we holidayed in Cornwall, when I was a child - it was just fantastic, so peppery, and really spicy!.....
(*drooling again!*)

And for me, yep, the mushrooms are a must-have, and the fried spuds. And fried eggs with fresh runny yolks - I cut around them, carefully scoop them up and let them burst open in my mouth......yummy!!!

I don't like the egg whites so much? - but put a good dollop of Heinz Ketchup on them - and I'm very happy!

Plate-wise? Forget it! - go for a platter plate, then pile it up and dive in! You only live once!......Enjoy!.....x

The northerner in me needs black pudding drenched in malt vinegar and black pepper. Poached egg and a fried slice. My mum in law always does fried onions and bananas?? She's south African born so don't know if that influences this but have to admit it's grown on me. Ooh and you can't beat chilled grapefruit juice to cut through the grease and a mug of builders tea!!!

Back on a culinary note: I was musing today about the great British Breakfast (not necessarily eaten at breakfast time, in fact I can only face it at the end of an energetic day). What are the essential elements? For me you can't beat the full Scottish, with tattie scones, selkirk bannock, Lorne sausage etc. I also like Irish white pudding, and it goes without saying the best black pud is from Lancashire. There needs to be plenty of hot buttered toast; grilled tomatoes, not tinned; a few mushrooms are nice, ditto fried spuds; and if I'm making it myself I like to have plenty of griddled or stewed apples. Hold the baked beans, they only ruin it.

Can you fit all that on the plate (which needs to be well warmed)? You can only try...

Yuckety-yuck-yuck! I can't stand mayonnaise but I might try the cream cheese idea though? Mmmm!

Speaking of diet plans...I hate marge, I'd rather just spread Vaseline on my toast and have done with it, so for years it's been olive or coconut oil, or butter. I figured with those you get good enzymes and vitamins and such. Well it occurred to me to check the calories of cream cheese, since I loooove cheese, and it turns out cc has about a third the calories of butter, OO or CO. Sooo that's what I've been using. Little cream cheese topped with a slice of tomato, or a teaspoon of jam...lovely.

How about a massive slice of a huge 4 layered Victoria Sponge cake with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream for breakfast?......AGAIN!!! Yep! Just (wo)manfully ploughing my way through the very last slice of what was a truly wonderful and extremely welcome gift at the holiday cottage!

The parents (such cowards that they are!) admitted to defeat yesterday - and actually claimed to have been beaten by a mere cake?!! BUT not me!!!.....Ohhh no! I am made of far stronger stuff than that - plus I am now made up of 90% cake too now!.....mainly around my middle?!!.....

Ohhh Squirrels!!!.....I will fight Pixie to the last crumb over her diet plans, but sadly, they are now going to be an inevitable course of action for me when I get back home! Perhaps, I should stay here for good?.....and persue a new Norfolk life of pure cake and blissful ignorance instead???.....Hmmm, reality need never raise it's ugly head then and leer at me in the mirror?! - HA HA HA!!!.......

Okay happy? I give up! HELP!!! - and pass me that small bowl of Allbran, will you please? - with the sad wizened little apple that even the Fruit Bowl forgot about!.......(*sob*)....... :o<

Now you're just being cruel, she says, sobbing into her small bowl of Allbran, complete with shrivelled peach and over ripe banana.

This morning I fancied something yum to start the day off. I made a soda bread loaf yesterday and when it was cold sliced it thinly, kept some slices back a froze the rest. Soda bread is best eaten on the day but if you wrap the slices you want in foil it's fine the next day. Freezes fab.
I had a bargain small pack of smoked salmon..£2.50 instead of £5, that is on offer in the co-op.
A slice of soda bread, a few slices of the smoked salmon and top each slice with a half soft boiled was devine!

suzy that's the first I've heard of this Victoria Sponge Cake!! And you've eaten the lot! You may be on holiday, but still. It's just not fair. And I'm having withdrawal symptoms through no Lemon Drizzle Cake. I would have walked all the way for some of that cake of yours!!
