    Cant beat an Ulster fry

    I'd love to try a challenge like that but I'm too fussy about certain things. I don't eat mushrooms, any version of egg, tomatoes, or steak, but I'd happily take substitutions. No tea or coffee either, but I'd be happy with orange juice or water.

  • Registered Users Posts: 123 ✭✭TagoMago

    For the sausages, rashers and pudding I'd go for Kelly's, definitely the best this country has to offer.

    Also, if it's going to be traditional would boxty not need to be included?

    2 Sausages, 2 eggs, 2 rashers, 1 black pudding, 1 white pudding, fried mushrooms, fried potatoes, soda bread with real butter and plenty strong tea.

    Keep it simple. Couple of sausages, couple of rashers, black and white pudding and a fried egg. Tea, toast, butter and a jar of mustard must also be available.

    One of the last bastions of a good fry in Dublin City closed last year , Gerry’s RIP

    His big fry was ;3-4 small sausages , 3 bacon, B&w puddings , 2 eggs, tomato, beans, toast, tea or coffee and all under a tenner. Proper butcher sausage and bacon although pudding was never great. God I loved that place

    My home cooked weekend favorite every couple months would be; sausage , bacon, b&w pudding, fried eggs, fried mushrooms and few little tomatoes, beans, potato cake, toast or homemade bread rolls, fresh OJ and loads of good coffee and Barry’s or Lyons tea.

    Must try the challenge in Cork someday!

    Fancy schmancy you!!!

    I'll be honest, all the tinned beans taste the same to me, so I don't really care which brand goes on my fry. At home it's supermarket own brand.

    In Cork, would that be Tony's?

    Grilled tomatoes are essential for me; the tanginess cuts through the oil.

    And Lea & Perrins. Or an Irish Wooster sauce, like Terra Ignus.

    Not entirely Irish but here goes

    2 good quality sausages, preferably from the butcher's or Dunnes Stores Simply Better range sausages

    3 slices of Truly Irish Black Pudding

    2 good quality smoked rashers

    Scrambled or fried egg

    Sauteed mushrooms

    Heinz Beanz (I prefer the sauce to the Bachelor's beans. Bachelor's reduced sugar baked beans are particularly rank)

    A dollop of spicy Polish ketchup

    2 slices of wholegrain toast

    A big mug of tae

    I'm not a fan of fried tomato. I like hash browns but they don't agree with my stomach.

    Who has a Lucozade with a full Irish?

    Good Jesus...

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,750 ✭✭✭Greyfox

    Got to be 3 sausages, 2 rashers, 2 while pudding, 2 soft eggs on birds eye waffles and tea and toast. Beans kinda ruin a fry and those who add in a fried tomato should be shot

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,197 ✭✭✭✭Water John

    Sausages have to be 80% + pork meat. Either Truly Irish or De Roiste's Ballymakeera.

    Best rashers around are Dunnes Simply Better range.

    Puddings would be either McCarthy's Kanturk or De Roiste.

    A boiled left over potato, sliced and fried with a shake of salt.

    Love the sauteed mushrooms but leave the fried tomato out.

    Always a fried egg or two, not fussy.

    Our family get together meal is usually breakfast, out or at home.

    Years ago there was a small Italian place on Thomas Street called Piedescalso that used to serve the most amazing butter beans with a tomato sauce. They were incredible. Variety Jones is there now, I keep meaning to get my sh*t together and try book a table to check it out.

    Not really fry related, but god those beans were amazing.

    Jeez, you can't compare Dunnes Rashers with decent cured bacon from your local butcher's shop.

    It is if you're as bad as I am trying to fry an egg, those ceramic pans are pretty good but expensive and the thought of scratching the non stick would upset me. A bit of cold oil a tiny bit of water stops the egg over cooking and makes it easier to flip.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,950 ✭✭✭Gusser09

    Lidl and Aldi sausgaes, rashers and puddings are actually nice and don't cost an arm and a leg.
