Interesting. Joe's is fried sunny side up, no cheese , and no sauce. Duncan's is on a bun instead of between two slices of bread.

In the US we have such things...usually in a biscuit or English Muffin. The English must use muffins too ..... right?


In the US sausage is more often used than bacon and some famous ones use Canadian Bacon. And most eggs are poached. Like the Egg Mac Muffin. Oh... with a slice of cheese.

Niner's photo is what I have for breakfast most mornings, the only difference is I usually use a
sausage patty instead of bacon. I even bought the rings to fry the eggs so they look just like his photo.

I'm with you on that.....Well... maybe if it were the last place left to eat I would eat there.... or if the next choice to it was featured by that guy that's on TV that goes around the world eating the most exotic kind of offal and otherwise road kill.....Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern. Forty or fifty years ago MacDonald's was the home of 15 cent hamburgers and the best fries anywhere. You could order a hamburger, fry and a drink and get change back from your dollar. They advertised that on TV even. Now the same, dried out from waiting under a warming light hamburger is a dollar or so by itself and the fries don't have the same delicious cholesterol level in the grease they fry them in in order to be health conscious and aren't the same.

Sometimes I have a sandwich like Joe's, only difference is toasted bread and real butter.....mmmmm.

And I agree about Macdonalds, barely a step above road kill. The best fast-food burger and
fries on West Coast is In-N-Out Burger chain, their food is really good. Burger, fries, and drinks
are all they sell.
So many people did this to the bumper stickers that they quit making them at one time....... :mrgreen:

Certainly needs Brown Sauce, my preference is Daddies but I can manage HP without any problems. Can't get it here so have to import it twice a year when friends come over.

When I was on missionary work in Birmingham - ENGLAND that is :roll: - I remember driving down the Aston Express Way and smelling the HP being produced at the factory next to the road :D :D :D

I never thought a photo of a bacon and egg sarny would generate so many replies. HP sauce for me, always some in the food cupboard.

I know this is an old string, but I happened to go to a Publix grocery store for a change today and saw both the HP and the Daddies on the shelf. The Daddies was a little cheaper by a few cents but I went for the HP as the original. I noticed on both brands that they are made in Holland. And the HP has that hallmark that says the Queen gives her stamp of approval as being up to Royal standards. Seems like if the Queen were approving it that it would be made in England..... :GBR:

Haven't really tried it on anything , but it tastes a little more like Heinz 57 than A-1. A little more vinegary tasting than Heinz 57 or A-1.

I managed to persuade our local baker to make me a Teacake - yes I know some of you un educated types think there are currents in Teacakes but there are NOT :cool: :cool:

Anyway, I enjoyed every crumb................

Never would have thought to call that a Teacake, but it is one of my favorite breakfast combinations.
Although I would toast and butter the muffin, then add a slice of Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese........ :D
Damn, makes me hungry just talking about this stuff.

That looks more like a stottie to me Duncan, and 5 or 6 rashers of bacon does seem a bit extravagent.

You betcha Joe. You have to remember that is French bacon and it is cut with a laser beam - you can see through it mate!
Going to try and turn this into a regular order with the local Boulangerie :bigsmile: :GBR:

This should help some understand a bit more :razz:
