Pies vs Kebabs
Two Bass Hit

 3:15 am on Apr 13, 2006 (gmt 0)

Nothing against kebabs, but I've found that nothing quite beats the combo of freshly made pie and cold VB (for breakfast early on saturday morning). What do you think?

Fresh coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts. Sunday breakfast requires sawmill gravy and biscuits. (not cookies)

Pies and Kebabs can easily be compared to one another, and I like both quite equally, assuming the kebab doesn't have chilli in it and the pie has a decent amount of meat within.

I would never eat either for breakfast.

There is only one real option for a breakfast and that is a hearty combination of fried meat products and associated trimmings. I mean, of course, a full "English breakfast".

If you still think that pies (or indeed kebabs or crispy doughnuts) are good for breakfast then go and cook the following for yourself tomorrow, and tell me it's not better:-

For the frying pan:

- 2 cumberland sausages (or other type of lightly spiced uncooked sausage made with fresh pork - never an american or frankfurter sasuage)

- 2 rashers thin sliced bacon (suggest back bacon or streaky - if streaky you may want 3 rashers as they are smaller - smoked or unsmoked is up to you)

- One large or two small eggs garnished with finely chopped spring onion during final stages of frying (chicken egg recommended, but duck and goose equally nice - reduce quantity to suit)

- 1 hand-made or equivalent quality fresh beef-burger (avoid mass-produced burgers which have little meat or flavour)

- 2 slices freshly sliced brown bread dipped in a mix of egg, pepper and a pinch of salt

- 1 or 2 slices black pudding

- 2/3 button mushrooms or one flat mushroom, washed and cut

- 2 small or 1 large tomato, sliced

If you feel that's not enough for breakfast, add baked beans

Vince, Vince, Vince, you need to stop by for biscuits, sausage gravy and eggs, (your choice), red-eye gravy, bacon, country ham, hashbrowns and some apple butter. Typical Sunday breakfast. Mushrooms, onions and assorted peppers are always available.

V3, that sounds like the perfect meal. I was thinking I would be eating some pie and washing it down with a VB on my way home from a late night that starts friday and ends sometime around 4am saturday.

Digitalghost in the UK biscuits are your cookies.

I will and do gladly eat rice with a spicy pork (or chicken) curry with a fried egg for breakfast but would not consider a pie or a kebab.

I have never heard of a traditional English breakfast with a beef burger in it either.

Funny how you can only eat and enjoy that stuff when you're in top form/healthy (or drunk).

When you're ill, it's fruit juice and maybe a bit of muesli.

...cold VB, sawmill gravy, red eye gravy...?

Sorry, but the batteries in my universal translation device have just died. Anyone?

Can't say I know what the gravies are, but the cold VB is an Aussie beer (Victoria Bitter) which tastes not dissimilar to cat's pee.

Now, now. We all know all beers taste good, some just taste better than others.

I actually quite like VB, although it would never be a first choice.

You drink cats pee?

Nah, I just give it to my Aussie mates and tell 'em it's VB. No one has complained yet....

Sawmill gravy- crumbled sausage fried in a skillet, to which milk, salt, flour and black pepper are added resulting in a thick gravy which is great served over biscuits.

Redeye gravy - made from the country ham drippings, just add a cup of black coffee and some black pepper. Good poured over the country ham, or dipping toast.

For me it has got to be a good old English breakfast.

I'd prefer a pie in the evening, washed down with some Real Ale.

When I was astudent in Cambridge the finishing line used to Be teh Red Cow by the corn exchange, solely becasue it was on teh kebab seller side of the market....

I thought you were having a slice of hot fruit pastry while you wrote Visual Basic.

Whew- I thought I was the only one who thought that! It sounded like common programmer fare to me.

Personally, I'd rather have cold pizza than cold code.
