The Great Northumberland Breakfast is on its way
is a small headline in the Berwick Advertiser.
Huttonian is a supporter of the Full Breakfast philosophy (but sadly has no longer the metabolism to enjoy it frequently) and is delighted to read that there is yet another ethnic variety in these parts. Apparently according to the article:
"Everyone has heard of a traditional full English, Scottish or Irish breakfast but what about the Great Northumberland Breakfast?
It could mean Craster kippers, stottie cake, grilled Lindisfarne oysters and Craster smoked salmon with Sunny Hill free range scrambled eggs or locally produced sausages and bacon."
Could it indeed? But how about oh VisitScotland.Come (the new website soon to be launched on an indifferent world) sponsoring the Big Borders Breakfast
? (aka the Caravanners Special)
It could mean a hefty helping of Sir Morrison's High Fat Chips, a Big Mac from next door (with easily-out-of the-- car-- window -disposable -plastic wrapping), a slice of cold Haggis,ditto cold Pizza,6 greasy battery eggs, Organic Neeps,Paxton Poached Salmon on the bone, large dollup of Rentons Brown Sauce, half a loaf of sliced sweet white bread, washed down with a family sized bottle of Coke with a tot of Iron Bru on the side.
Breakfast all day would just about cover it. Price to pay?
Up all night might cover that as well.
