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?

Can't relate it to the specific Christmas connection, but my Grandfather always ate some Pork Pie for his breakfast.

Still do,

Used to be with a Pork Farms pie in the old days when they were edible, but now for me it has to be a Dickinson & Morris's Melton pie.

Seasons greetings to all,

Not heard of Pork pie breakfast before. A mate of mine the other day mentioned something being on the Dog shelf, apparently the Dog shelf is the floor, he reckons it's a well known Nottm saying.

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!

I can't believe how few of you have heard of it !! as I said Tomato Soup is another tradition (I am not making this up )

Another saying (not just local) is "A watched kettle never boils" this intrigued me as quite illogical? so put it to the test, not only does it boil but if left long enough on the gas it burns the bottom out of it! :crazy:

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.
