" I'm A Savage For Bacon And Cabbage".

 Thanks for all the comments and views for the Beans On Toast post.  Food posts seem to be very popular.

So what did you have for your tea last night?  Bacon cabbage and potatoes:


It's probably Irelands favourite food dish?

My Irish grandparents seemed to eat it everyday even on red hot summers days.  Its a meal that's plain but full of sustenance and gives you all require from a good feed.

Do you eat bacon, cabbage and potatoes?  We usually have it at least once a week and it always goes down well and every plate is empty.

Here's a song about it:

  1. That's a good, hearty plateful. The bacon looks like what we would call gammon?
    I had two plain cream crackers for my tea last night (I was feeling poorly). Not as tasty as yours.

    1. Yes it is gammon , Detective JayCee Holmes. Not are own pigs either. It was reduced in Lidl. Hope you are feeling better. There's a lot of coughs and colds and bad chests at the moment. Thanks.

  2. Your bacon looks quite different from our bacon. We have something similar. I cook kielbasa with onion,. potato, cabbage, and carrot.

  3. I had to look up kielbasa Anonymous. Polish sausage with onion, potato, cabbage and carrot. Sounds good. I have been to Poland twice. I saw my favourite Prog Rock band Kansas in Warsaw in 2014. Brilliant concert and a fantastic city to visit.

  10. My late brother Paul and his family were always eating spuds, cabbage and bacon - I guess it's Ireland's equivalent of Spain's paella or Morocco's lamb tagine or North Korea's boiled dog.

  11. I would say it's English like driving on the left, speaking English and supping cups of tea.

  12. That's hilarious! I don't eat bacon very often, but I do like potatoes and cabbage, always cooking more than I need so leftovers can be mashed and fried the next day.
