    Heathen! Doughy soft white bread and ketchup!

    Bleurgh! You just picked the worst kind of bread in the world. Read how that soft white bread is made and feel ashamed of yourself!

    Serously tough, that bread is crap. I prefer those properly fermented whole grain breads (with the extreme being the Abbendbrot) that are a meal in themselves. Also tried spelt bread and when I was in Portugal my local baker did this amazing corn flower and olive oil bread... YUM!

    It is the perfect accompaniment for bacon (something which after all is likely carcinogenic and certainly high in salt and saturated fat). Would you be happier with an artisan made milk loaf? Would have a similar effect.

    Nope. Whole grain savoury bread. Slightly bitter to top it off. Yum

    Good for a chicken sandwich, maybe OK for a BLT, just wrong for bacon or bacon and egg.

    I don't eat bacon. Prefer a good qualite ham. Prosciuto as the Italians call it, Presunto in Portugal. Muc richer flavour. Goes well with egg, lettuce, tomato and mayo.

    Its a sandwich with the filling being toast. Toast buttered on both sides and both bits of bread buttered naturally. An insight into the time my family was homeless and lived off cheap food :p


    Honestly though, I still like them now and again.

    As delicious as the cold roast chicken in a toasted sandwich sounds...I never got the point of potato in sandwich. Like chip butties. Seriously, it's just like munching on most of a loaf. If I wanted that many carbs, I'd have a few bags of crisps on the side.

    I'm not sure if I want to slap you or hug you. Maybe both. Some of the things you come out somehow sound awful and yet incredibly delicious at the same time. :thinking:

    Lies! Everyone knows its' the Full English that is the best in the world, black pudding an' all :). It's literally the food equivalent of love.

    'Tis the only way to eat a bacon omelette. Sometimes requires a knife and fork.


    Ah, no. I haven't done that one. I like toast too much to do that, so I tend to take my time and savour the slices one by one.

    Favourite comfort toast as a kid - cinnamon toast. Toast, butter, sugar, cinnamon. Om nom nom. I might make myself some more soon.

    While I am a lover of the full English which yes must have black pudding, I have been known to stray in my affections and have had some serious indiscretions with eggs benedict and biscuits and gravy.

    A sandwich extra tall, then, like two stacked on top of each other, like in the cartoon, right? I would make myself one sometimes when I was a kid, but I called it a "Dagwood sandwich" after the newspaper comic "Blondie." Alternating layers of meat, cheese, tomato, lettuce, mustard, mayo. :heart:

    I don't do it anymore because my mouth only opens so far, and it's not acceptable for a grown up to make a big mess of his food. :p
