xmas pork pie breakfast


Recommended Posts

Hi.. Every christmas morning my late father who came from Arnold used to have pork pie for breakfast. when I later asked him about it he said it was a tradition carried out in Nottingham .Something simple to start the day that did not need cooking .When I married I had my pork pie breakfast. my wife who comes from Sneinton told me she had never heard of this . is it an old Nottingham tradition ? or wasit something my dad dreamed up?

I can't understand why vegans want their food to look like meat. If your vegan, fine, but don't pretend you're not by tarting your food up as something that its not. You  wouldn't want us meat eaters

After the heart attack, I fear that pig pie is going to be right off the breakfast menu this year. Still, at least turkey is on the approved list, and having done penance at breakfast, I think I may b

Well, all these bloody years and I thought my old man was the only one who did this! He used to reckon it was tradition too, but I've no idea where it originates from.

Denshaw, I have heard the expression used but didn't know what it meant, thanks for that!

And I thought it was only eaten in our household at Christmas too!!!

I hated it, but it had advantages later on, after a Christmas Eve out on the town and many pints, it was a blessed relief not to have a greasy fry up shoved in front of me on Xmas morning.

The peice of pork pie I had in the club last night before I made my way to the station was very nice.

The only thing that let it down was the crust that was IMO over cooked also there weren't no jelly but the meat was top rate stuff, all washed down with a pint of the dark stuff.

Superb , there used to be a youth that sat @ our table @ breakfast opposite me eating his scabby white bit , then he would lift that runny slimy yolk on his fork , and burst it on his tongue.

The dirty dirty scabby horrible disgusting tramp , he is now banned from our card table and has to sit with the man-riders.

Paul Shaw thats you named and shamed . You missed the lads night out @ chrimbo you wasn't invited . Go away.

Dirty man.

I too use to sit with a chap who did exactly the same thing with his egg...Alan Boston...wander where he his now?

We never ostracised him thou from our table, maybe we should have do?

He left the Horizon factory to work on city transport, I bet he wished he had stayed were he was because if he had he would like me be retired by now with a lovely pention.

Ayup Beefsteak.

With ref,to the picture, the Chips were a work of art, it's the only way to describe them, the eggs were perfect not too runny just right and the ham melted on the fork, in fact it was that crumbly one would have faired better using a spoon, peas, spot on, in fact I was that impressed with the food I just had to take a photograph so that I could share it with every one on this site.

For drinks I was in a wreckless mood and treated myself to 1/2 pint of Lancaster Bomber which is specially brewed for the Blue Bell, It's difficult to describe really, the closest I guess would be to liken it to a smooth wine. All this in surroundings depicting all your aviation hero's, a lunchtime to remember.

I hope my description has managed to fill in some of the gaps that a mere photograph cannot

(sits back and waits for it to hit the fan)
