PostSubject: Hello   Fri Feb 19, 2010 4:05 pm

Hello everyone,
I've been (oh, wait a minute.... yes I took my shoes off at the door, *whew*) Must be careful on the Grade A Axminster.
Well, I've been watching Keeping up Appearances on and off since the early 90's. I've always thought it was completely hilarious. Now, I've found it on Youtube (thank God) And I can't stop watching it LOL.
I became curious about the various cars on the show, as in the UK they have many cars that we don't see over here in Texas. And vice versa, of course. Anyway, I came across this very site while trying to find out about the car in front of Onslow's place. (I believe it's a '70 Hillman Avenger, similiar to the Dodge/Plymouth Cricket)
So, today, I was watching an episode, and Daisy talks about "Bacon Sarnies". (I guess that's how it's spelled). I remember hearing this back in the 90's, and I just assumed it's basically a bacon sandwich? Doesn't sound too bad actually....
Anyway, that's what I was trying to look up, hehehe. Actually, Wikipedia has an entry for them. Man that looks good. I came back here to see if I could see anything about these bacon-licious sarnies on the forums, perhaps, and ended up signing up! Smile
(hehehe I'm watching the end of the one where Hyacinth gets the Gooseberry Wine at the auction right now LOL) "I don't know if you'll all join me in a bottle of the Dowager Lady Ursula's Haymode Geesberry Woone" ROFL
I think I hurt my spleen the other day laughing at the episode of "the New Vicar",
"Get that CAR away from this PROPERTY! I want them and IT out of the AVENUE!"
LOL!

Thank you Smile

Yes, it appears like quite a lot of bacon, and maybe even a couple slices of ham, on wheat bread, and then they say it's buttered, hence the term "bacon butty", that they also call them. That's a lot of bacon. I'm kind of afraid lol.

I sometimes make a "breakfast sandwich" (I guess it would be Texas Style, since I'm in Texas lol) I toast the bread in a skillet with a touch of butter, just to brown it a bit, both sides, then I add scrambled egg and cheese. Sometimes I might add a sausage pattie (Purnell's "Old Folks" sausage), and then it's topped with mayo (Hellman's / Best Foods) and a touch of horseradish sauce on the opposite slice of bread.

The thing about adding the sausage pattie is making it wide enough to cover the whole thing. Over here in the US we have "pan sausage", which is only about 2 1/2 inches diameter, and about 1/2 inch thick. So, I usually take two of these patties and simply work them together, and create a wider, thinner pattie, and try to acount for shrinking. I also season the eggs with salt, black pepper, and some onion powder just before taking out of the skillet. Jeez, I am a pretty good cook I guess hehehe. My beef pot pie usually vanishes within 15 minutes. Most people in Texas like to cook, and it's not all barbecue. Like the great chefs of Europe say, "I hate to cook.... but I love to eat."

Maybe I should call it a "Breakfast Sarnie" Very Happy (and pronounce it like Onslow, of course).
Now you watch, next month, Jack-in-the-Box will have one just like it.

Lol, I wonder what Hyacinth would say about peanut butter and bacon?

I am really tempted to go down to Subway, and ask them to make me a Bacon Sarnie. lol. It would blow their little minds @_@
