Re: Egg & Soldiers

Depends on what you fry them in? We do ours in a fresh splash of chilli oil.

Nothing like an extra hot egg banjo sandwich Thumbs Up

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

I can't believe this thread is still going; are you trying to beat @jelv's "Why I have left Plusnet"?Laugh

Like a runny egg, never an end to it. 

Mind you, I think it will be knocked off any ratings by those Brexit threads. Thumbs Up

True, but Al Bumen was always white I believe.

Re: Egg & Soldiers

It's that time of year again.

With an outside temperature of 5.2 ºC,   it seemed an opportune moment to resurrect Egg & Soldiers for Breakfast.

Coupled with new Cleavers, giving pristine Soldiers.

I even remembered to place foil under the egg cups, to capture any overflow.

 

Mmmmm Yummy.....

Re: Egg & Soldiers

Well, thanks for the reminder, I was just wondering what to have and had half settled on scrambled egg on toast - but boiled egg and soldiers it is Cheesy

 

The best bacon and egg style breakfast I ever had, was one I would call in and get in a cafe in Calais, straight off the boat. The guy who served was Scottish, who tried to pretend to be French and the food cooked by his French wife/partner. The breakfast was out of this world for taste, especially the fried eggs. They dusted/sprinkled the egg with something which I could never quite place.

The place and the owners are probably long gone by now.

Re: Egg & Soldiers

Just about to boil a couple of eggs, turned on the tap and nothing.

Apparently a mains burst more than a couple of miles away. Looks like I won't be the only one going without their eggy soldiers.

Well I never get eggs from my tap!

I make a habit of keeping the kettle filled for the rare occasions the water supply fails.

Re: Egg & Soldiers

I just knew someone would say that.Smiley

My kettle of water is for my "emergency" cup of tea,

 

I think this leak repair is going to take a long time. My neighbor who happened to be in the area of the leak questioned a few of the waterboard "suits". No they haven't yet located the leaks source and yes they were surprised that they were affected so far away.

 

How do they dig a hole in a couple of feet deep "pond"?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spoke too soon. A neighbor knocked to let me know the waters back on.

I suppose the water shutting off here, so far away, was part of the leak detection strategy. Shutting off surrounding mains to see what effects the leak.

Once bitten.....

 

We keep a cupboard stocked with bottled water, it's only 17p/2 litres.

 

We had a spate of burst mains pipes end of last year, all sorted within a couple of hours.

 

Round here, we usually get low pressure just before water cut off, a useful warning.

 

To misquote Max Boyce..

 

Eggy, Eggy, Eggy...... Oi, Oi, Oi..
