Help me out 00. Are those toast sticks? My Americaness might be getting in the way. 

Also great salt and pepper shakers.

They are referred to as 'soldiers', Spork. Cut that way so you can dip them in your 'chukkie egg'.

Ah. Thank you CSL. I looked it up. Makes sense to me. I am a big proper breakfast fan myself and I want to try it



Of course this is in stark contrast to the american style breakfast which is usually about a pound of scrambled eggs, 2 pounds of buttered potatoes (home fries), ketchup, hot sauce, coffee, followed by sitting on our couch, loosening our belts, and blaming it all on Obama. 

Actually both options appeal to me equally Tongue

Yup. Def worth a try, Spork. A simple boiled egg can be surprisingly good. Add some salt of course.

We British do have our version of the large breakfast, what they call 'The Full English' these days. Fried eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, fried bread...other random things from the frying pan...tomatoes, mushrooms & (if you are a Northerner) the infamous Black Pudding. There's also a concoction of potatoes & cabbage called 'bubble & squeak'...

Yup. I am familiar with the full "English / Irish Breakfasts" and I am a fan (always loved the idea of the tomatoes and beans and never daring enough to go for the black pudding). I gotta stop with this talk though. Only another day until 2017 and im back on nothing but rabbit food for a few weeks at least!

Thanks CSL

Oh dear! Good luck with those dietary restrictions, Spork. You have my sympathy.

Thanks spork, i think the cacti are a relic from my Tequila binging days, they remind me never to do it again.

CSL has summed it up perfectly, Try a sprinkling of salt on your buttered toast before cutting it into soldiers rather than continuously seasoning your egg.
White Pudding could be a variation on the theme if blood doesn't appeal but your chances of finding it in the States are slim.

Is black pudding solely a British thing? the Vietnamese joint we go to serves it but they call it 'blood curds' sounds even less appealing! the Szechuan joint across road serves honeycomb (which is tripe) quite an accurate description when you think about it.

I remember my parents occasionally eating tripe, trotters & whole black puddings for dinner with vinegar on them. (Not all at once...).
