This truly Scottish phenomena is served almost without fail in every bed and breakfast and hotel in every part of Scotland. It is an intrinsic part of Scottish hospitality and if well done it can be a true masterpiece.
If you get it right you won't need to eat again till tea time or (if you’ve really done yourself proud), till the next morning! So what is it? Here goes;
Sausage, black pudding, (sometimes haggis or white pudding too), bacon, eggs (fried, scrambled or poached - or all 3?), mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, tattie scones and a variety of other goodies like fried bread, hash browns or fried potatoes. All washed down with lashings of tea or coffee plus toast with butter and marmalade or jam. Phew! Opt for 'the works' or just a wee selection of what's on offer.
