I find the food in the West of Scotland really hits the spot. I once had a 'fish tea' in Largs and it was:

A lot of bread and butter
A lot of chips
A heavily battered fish
A massive pot of tea
An empire biscuit

This in August. Ace.

You don't get Empire biscuits in England.

I had bacon frazzles with a ham & cheese baguette just the other night. It's delightful right enough.

Suitable for vegetarians too. Frazzles I mean, not ham sandwiches. I never tried them in a sandwich. Good I'll bet. (please note Jamie, not in a salmon and cream cheese sandwich though). Almost as good as Cheese and Onion I should think :)

Crikey, people feel very strongly about this crisps in sandwiches business. I was expecting revulsion when I posted that pic of that sandwich!

I've never understood crisps in sandwiches meself, but I am very fussy about food textures in general.

My sister used to put crisps in her sandwiches. i've always preferred them on the side.

is anyone else here old enough to remember Nicholas from Eight is Enough and his peanut butter and jelly bean sandwich?

Whose fucking idea was it to put cranberry in sandwiches. I've just had a terrible few minutes.

Shop-bought sandwich? Bourgeois motherlover.

Basically it's jam, isn't it ... so I'm guessing you just had something like a jam and turkey sandwich. Whose idea? Someone who never actually ate one I think.

I love a bit of cranberry in a sandwich, especially with brie. Cheese and jam tastes nice too, but I think you have to be a sweet and savoury mixer type person. I also eat pineapple on pizza and gammon. Peanut butter and jam too!
Just be nice to me.

Are you perpetually pregnant, woman? Or are you a WITCH?

As the old rhyme goes:

Meat and fruit
Should never be seen

Piffle. Pork and apple sauce butties are brilliant.

I always ask for no apple sauce on an HPS (hot pork sandwich). People in Sheffield, particularly in the Hillsborough area, think that it's the local delicacy.
Vegetarians look away. Béres has possibly the most legendary status. They must brine their pork (as it were) as it's very pink.

They have hot pork sandwiches everywhere though, no?

When I was at school (int he Black Country) people used to go to a butcher's in the village for HPS (as you put it) with crackling. I don't recall whether or not they offered apple sauce or stuffing or both or gravy. Althoguh I was a meatface at the time, I never ate a HPS.

Indeed. I am wary of fruit in savoury dishes but pork and apple is a great combination in a sandwich and indeed elsewhere.

I, for one, welcome a meat and fruit combination, as long as the flavours work together. There are some great combos out there - lamb and dates in a tagine, for example, go tremendously well together. Also, there's a recipe I got off my stepdad for duck with a sauce made from red wine and morello cherry jam, which is soooo nice. Also, sultanas and pineapple are lovely in curry - yeah, you heard me! Bananas in savoury stuff though: bleurgh.

Fruit and meat is a delicate combination, and tricky to get right at the best of times, I'm sure we all agree. There is little if any place for it in the realm of the sandwich.

Yes! Lamb and apricots go well together in a Moroccan dish too. The last two times I've been to Perpignan, I had a duck dish with Banyuls (local fortified wine) and seasonal fruit sauce. It was amazing! I also had a duck and kriek sauce once in Brussels, which was absolutely delicious.

There is the old classic.......cheese hedgehog. There's nothing like cheese & pineapple on cocktail sticks with a little hedgehog face watching you. Or maybe cheese & pickled onion.
Just be nice to me.
