One of Ulster
's (Northern Ireland
)most famous dishes embracing the best of local produce - bacon, sausages, eggs and breads. Primarily a breakfast dish but popular at any time of day with a few additions like chops, steak, kidneys, liver, tomatoes and mushrooms.
What makes the Ulster fry distinctive from any other fry-up
is the addition of farls, potato cakes and usually a scotch pancake, therefore much more emphasis on carbohydrates.
A typical fry for one person will consist of:
2 bacon rashers
2 slices black or white pudding
1/2 farl and/or soda bread
1-2 large eggs
It will often be accompanied by toast too.......... just in case the fry-eater should feel a little peckish!
