Well my good lady bought me 2 medium pork pies to sample xmas day, we have a kilo of uncooked Black tiger prawns going in chilli & garlic marinade and a kilo of local mussels to be done on the bbq

Best way to eat pork pie cut it in half scoop out all the disgusting grey interior & filthy jelly & chuck it in the bin & eat the pastry or give it the dog  

Age 12 (early 1960's)  I worked on my uncle's farm near Wysall. I was called into the kitchen after all animals fed and watered and offered pork pie, Branston pickle, a glass of sherry and unsliced bread. Kept this tradition going for the last 52 years and my son in law also buys into the tradition. Family originated from Sutton Bonnington, again as farmers.

Nottingham born and bred, got married and moved to Bramcote. I never heard of pork pie for breakfast until I visited the 'Rosegrower' pub (now long gone). Everyone in the pub told me it was a local tradition to eat pork pie with mustard for Christmas breakfast, so for the last 40 years I eat pork pie, mustard, a piece of Stilton and drink a glass of port, Christmas morning. Heaven on a plate and in a glass.

I read somewhere that it was a tradition that originated in Nottinghamshire in Victorian times, and D.H. Lawrence always had this for Christmas breakfast.

 

Re: previous comments about fried eggs. - I once had a pint of Kimberleys at the Railway And Nelson in Kimberley (across the road from the brewery), and ordered a fried egg and bacon cob. I bit into the cob, and the egg yoke ran down my fingers. The best cob I ever eaten in my life!
