ham + eggs: the ultimate pub classic when trio'd with chips
Thinly sliced ham has no place outside of a sandwich. A ham and cheese sandwich to be precise.
then chuck a few eggs in there and stir it up. Bangtidy
puff pastry, tomato puree with pomegrante syrup spread over it, sucuk, halloumi, tomatoes, olives in the oven, oooooh
gammon & Egg
bacon & egg
omelette & Bacon/ham/chortzo
beef burger with a fried egg in it
smoked salmon and scrambled egg
ham and egg sandwich
i love pig
I consider the flesh of a living thing to be meat.
I'd call it a fish.
but in the context of this thread I'm totally thinking outside the box.
Pork is a white meat.
there are hardly any orange foods.
like i said, hardly any
the Dutch king had them genetically altered to be orange.
Salmon is a fish.
Poultry and pork are white meats. Fish is fish meat or flesh. Its not white meat. Salmon is pink/orange anyway so couldn't be described as white.
how could you miss that out D? It's the best of all
I did a take on your ham & eggs suggestion by putting it into sandwich form.
bit of salad cream. oh YES.
Meat and eggs - pretty standard.
so have messed this up a bit.
I guess I was thinking, yeah, steak and eggs, chicken casserole type thing with eggs, ham and eggs. ignore me.
But I go for scrambled rather than fried
I think you're trying to fool me into something as I don't think dodos exist any more.
I went to a market once and there were duck eggs that were almost as big as my fist.
I prefer duck eggs and normal eggs aren't really the same. I don't just eat eggs....although I probably could.
is one of those things that i've always fancied trying but never remembered at the key moment
They're bigger and the yolk is so much richer. The whites poach a bit weird though (go a bit rubbery but still good) so I find its best to do soft boiled eggs with them. They sell them in tesco and sainsburys so not hard to get hold of and only a few pence more than regular free range eggs.
plus - poached egg with almost any meat
farming for big lcd markets translates to pressure to cut costs and not stick to all good/healthy/humane practices.
Although a vegetarian I felt some sympathy for some farmers (when they had to have their herds destroyed F&M BSE) who had spent more time and effort in rearing healthy and happy (relatively) herds of cows in less intensive farming which results in better but more expensive meat.
As I know that there is more feeling for your animals worth when there are a few rather than countless faceless ones, when you are farming.
there do seem to be a lot more pigs being reared in fields with their shelters in the field.....Im not sure whether this has translated to a reduction in pigs being reared in much worse conditions (on hard surfaces).
Its far from perfect, Ideally pigs would like a varied habitat that they can explore and use their specialised intelligence/sense package to seek different foods.....but like I say its a vast improvement as they can root about.
Of course previous farming, where pigs could be put out into the forrests, when people has the right of pannage was even better.
I know I have grazing rights there.
Have you ever had a poached egg in a chicken noodle soup?
....a question how did you all feel when Hugh Fearnley wittingwhatever killed a chicken live on air?
I actually thought he did it really well, and was pleased to see him showing people how it should/could be done, and I was suprised at how horrified some people were by this.
I used to do it rather well (so much better than the people who told/showed me how to do it did it).
Big chicken slaughtering plants did not do it well.
How about scrambled on the side of a meat pie?
death works in theory, unfortunately when translated to mass destruction plants it is not as controlled.
What's your opinion on Eggs Benedict but with smoked salmon instead of ham? I think it's got a name but I can't remember it.
fish farming problems were not so apparent then.
As with all things the industrial application of something to build larger profits causes the problems, thus mass salmon fish farming causes local disasters
but hugh is doing the right thing, he loves animals and loves meat, so he is probably doing something he doesnt like doing.
I didnt like killing them, but I didnt worry too much because I had to do it when/if it became necessary because if I didnt then on one of the days I wasnt on the farm then someone else might do it more nastily.
If the killing was slightly less than perfect then you have to let it upset you a little bit (rather than just excusing yourself and saying its alright) otherwise you will not take as much care to avoid it in the future.
the old flock is destroyed and a new one ordered.
With battery and some barn flocks the birds are actually really rather mankey.
and I wondered to what use they would be put......well the answer was processed meat products, prepared meals (like the various chicken meals you can get cook chilled), chicken pate, spreads and ......BABY FOOD.
Even before I became vegetarian there was no way that I would have wanted to eat the manky birds that were from mass egg laying flocks (fish and antibiotics were incorporated into their diet)
I realised later that the mass meat production chickens would also be full of antibiotics (diseases in animals so tightly packed and so genetically closely related would be devastating). So I went off eating chicken first
I once had quails eggs with a lovely sea bream fillet, it was delicious.
and everyone does it (copyright - mass media lifestyle entertainment) which is when low level production/harvesting cannot satisfy the demand and so an industry grows up, and causes major ecologicla problems of its own (becausse of the drive to cut corners to maximise profit.....in the case of industry) or when something gets overfished to a dangerous degree
to all just eat less, but better meat.
Spend the same amount if you like, just try to be more discerning, its better for you and the animals and the planet.
When you have a curry, have vegetable curries takeaways have as many choices (mostly) and use the money you save, to treat yourself to a really good piece of meat from a healthily reared herd.
I wish they made a vegetarian one that had that special frey bentosness
I look longingly when I see a frey bentos pie in supermarts in the hope that they've brought out a vegetarian one
Sausage and egg pie is the shit.
Basically a fuck load of sausage meat with hard boiled eggs thrown in contained in homemade shortcrust pastry. It's outstanding.
I've only known my Mum to make it, and now I've made it to her recipe a couple of times. http://sphotos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/196301_599116166972_1110328_n.jpg
I make a pretty good sausage and egg pie, if I may say so myself.
Like Gypsy Tart
Just about works though I guess so I'll let it go.
I've been meaning to make Mum a gypsy tart for ages. Might do it for the next time I see her. Incredibly simple, just sugar and evaporated milk.
I texted my Mum to see if she could knock one up next time I'm down on accounts of my gf looking at me like I was inside out when I mentioned gypsy tart.
Yeah, I think they're pretty much local to Kent.
Also it sounds like you're into splooshing and your flatmate knows.
Finally, you are antpocalypsenow's sister.
I'm a very powerful enemy to have...
I've got history. No this one.
Sorry psenow but I had to set the record straight.
Why haven't I realised that you're constantly being deeply offensive about my sister before, man!? :D
You've got creaky to contend with up there and all this going on down here. It's a sad shame.
I'm assuming no-one's mentioned ham + egg sandwiches, or gammon, egg and chips. Or scotch eggs. Or bacon and eggs. Or pork pie with an egg in it.
Never see it with beef though.
I relent as best I can
Quorn make some scotch egg sort of facsimile
and they're OK, but it is quorn sausagy mince miced with mashed egg so its not a proper scotch egg.
Holland and Barret vegetarian scotch eggs are much better
(hows that? its the best I can do)
Was at a restaurant recently and had smoked haddock risotto, topped with a poached egg.
