I should of probably mentionined in addition to fried eggs, rashers and sausages. Better than frying imo!
Tomatoes - if they were the last food left on earth I wouldn’t touch them!
Also lard. It’s disgusting. Oil or nothing for me.
Beans don't belong in an Irish fry, and are also the only thing that can ruin the whole breakfast. Anything else you don't like can be pushed to the side, but bean juice permeates everything.
I’ve had a range of different kinds. Seriously, from supermarket pudding to dishes containing it in fancy restaurants. Whatever the ingredients, not one have I liked. I simply don’t like black pudding. And oats are another foodstuff are generally not for me. So mentioning that it contains oats only underlines my dislike really. Some people (in real life) have almost got offended when I say I don’t like pudding. I don’t know why. Am I supposed to like the stuff because it’s traditionally Irish?
So you won't be having a healthy bowl of porridge instead of a fry, I take it?
You're not supposed to like anything. It's personal choice or taste. I don't think anybody said if was obligatory for citizenship.
When it comes to black pudding, it bloody well should be.
There'd be a lot less untrustworthy people around.
Get cherry tomatoes on the vine and roast them. I know I know, not traditional.
For me the big no-no's would be tomato, mushroom and beans.....beans are the worst, the sauce gets into everything.
The other big no-no is when it doesn't come with bread or toast.
No beans in my fry, thank you. This is not negotiable. Baked beans are pleasant enough on toast or, occasionally, with sausage-chip-'n'-puddin' or similar, but not in a breakfast fry. I'm not too gone one tomatoes at breakfast either, but Woman likes them and I am prepared to give her that one.
Clonakilty have upped their black pudding game significantly in recent years after some time in the doldrums, fair play. This weather Oi arr mostly liking Shaw's and Rudd's - the latter has an unusually smooth, almost runny, sort of texture as black puddings go. Denny and Galtee "pudding" are for scutterin' gobsheens and Americans who are so out of it they think cheese-like-substance from a toothpaste tube is a good idea. Fuck 'em.
None o' them foreign sausages.
I love Rudds.
I like it too - unusual, but very tasty.
