Soda Bread


If the Ulster Fry is our national meal, then this, I guess is the quick, on-the-run version. Bacon, egg and sausage, all fried and served in soda bread. Not very healthy - but, judging by the number of cafes in town selling it- a very popular breakfast. Soda bread is lovely however, especially when very fresh. It is quick to make and a good bread for anyone avoiding yeast.

That sounds absolutely delicious to me, but when I first saw the photo I thought it mean "sausage-flavored soft drink" which changed the meaning a bit!

LOL, just like Victoria - when I first saw it, I thought "who drinks soda with their breakfast?" ;-)))

However, I do love my soda bread!

It's a while since we had any Irish soda bread [try and stick to healthy wholemeal these days] but yes it would be lovely with bacon/egg/sausage.

I too thought soda meant a soft-drink and I thought £1.99 wasn't a bad price if it included a can of pseudocoke, but seemingly that's extra.

Blogging about Soda bread on Pancake Tuesday, watch the 'blog police' don't catch you ;-)

Ohhhh, great pic today! What memories you are giving me.

Love the sound of an Ulster Fry right now.

Hope you're having good weather!

Thank you for your comments!
I'd forgotten that 'soda' has a different meaning elsewhere! - ugh, the thought of a meat flavoured fizzy drink!
Cybez, I did feel bad not putting on a pancake-day related post, but I didn't see anything good in town and my homemade pancakes tonight were tasty but not particularly photogenic!
Pat, I've put your link on - sorry I didn't have it on before, I'm still not terribly proficient at this blogging stuff! (I haven't forgotten about Merville Garden Village - I just haven't had a chance to get up to north Belfast yet.) The weather has really picked up here over the past few days, blue skys and looking like spring at last..

Oh, duh...I had to read the comments before I got the "soda"...and as for who drinks soda with their breakfast...well, I won't go naming names, but...

I'd hate to be trying to get a photo for Ash Wednesday in some areas of Belfast 'What are you taking a photo of me for?' :-)

Are you on flickr by the way?

blueboat said...

Cybez. Agreed! I recently bought a TZ1 to enable me to take photos from a safe distance, but I'm still feeling a bit nervous about taking shots with people in them - the people at St Georges were lovely but as you say, in certain parts of town I wouldn't fancy my chances! Not on Flickr (still too much of a luddite, I must look into it)

Thanks for adding me and thanks for visiting Guelph today!

I took photos of making Ulster Wheaten Bread. Must post them somewhere.
