Fried bread
« on: May 06, 2020, 05:30:07 pm »
Not a recipe;  more a question.

Once a staple in any fry-up during my childhood, I cannot think when the last time I had a bit of fried bread was, but I've been thinking recently to fry up a slice or two (even if for nostalgic reason only).

Anyone here still frying bread slices to go with, for example, their cooked breakfast and are there any tasty favourite variations you might have adopted compared to the de facto white bread in beef dripping?

I occasionally make fried bread, but in my case I use olive oil and serve with grilled tomatoes on top, sometimes bacon too.  Never white bread and beef dripping - sorry  :D

 I have not thought of this for years - and now almost can't stop thinking about it!! Definitely a staple in my childhood too.

I very occasionally have a bit of bread fried in the bacon fat after cooking bacon.  So, so :yum: and so, so very bad for me  :innocent:

That's what I do to - not every time I have bacon and eggs, but it is tasty

prompted by this post, we had fried bread and egg for lunch; just as delicious as I remember it! Fried bread is way better than toast under a fried egg.

Another Q:  how thick are your slices ? 

I'm going to assume that most folk will prefer to slice the bread themselves for frying to give that little extra something to the crunch and colour, but let's use pre-sliced bread as a reasonably standard measure of thickness:  do you prefer thin, medium or thick slices for frying ?

[I would add in passing that I accept no responsibility for any increase in Perris' girth idc.]

Got to be thick as possible fried in the bacon pan.
In my younger years this would have been out of bounds, now, well we've all got to go some time,may as well go happy.

I agree with Fleecewife, this is the best way to make fried bread. You do not alwasy need meat to make something taste damn good.

I I agree as well.
Fried bread is so tasty! Now when I read this, I realize I should eat this more often. Just because it is so nice. Even when it is not the healthiest food ever.  ::)
I would not use meet for it as well. Just a bit of olive oil or butter.
The idea to serve it with gilled tomatoes is pretty nice. I will try this as well.

Thanks for that inspiration!

Gotta be bacon fat or dripping. I'm quite partial to a tattie scone too. :yum:
