Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The first thing you need to put in the frying pan is a food that is made up of pork and herbs and spices, and is very long, so it is curled up in a round, coil shape. You can also have this as a dinner, served with gravy and mash and peas, but I'm starving and can't wait for dinner, so I'm having it for breakfast. What is this food?
2. The next item of food that you are going to add to the frying pan is a type of sausage that is made by cooking blood, along with a filler (like bread, meat, fat, oatmeal etc) until it thickens enough to set together, and is then cut into thin slices and fried. What do we Brits call this 'delicacy'?
3. There are many things you can do with a simple, humble piece of bread. Some people dip it in egg and sugar, and then fry it to make french toast. Some people toast it and smother it in butter. I wouldn't turn down any of these at the moment. But which of the following traditionally goes with a British fry-up?
4. You need to put the next item of food in a saucepan to heat up for a few minutes. These legumes come out of a can, and are covered in a tomato sauce. There are many different varieties of these around the world, but these particular ones traditionally go with your fry-up and are my favourite, especially the Heinz variety! What are they?
5. A delicious addition to the fry-up would be this oddly named concoction of fried leftovers from a traditional British Sunday Roast dinner (I feel another quiz coming on...) You put mashed potato together with any leftovers you want - cabbage, carrots, peas, sprouts, onions (and add meat if you wish, but it is mostly served vegetarian.) Put this altogether like a pattie, and then shallow fry it. What is this mouth-watering medley of fried stuff called?
6. Now, I know we already have some form of bread on our plate, and mashed potato as well, but some people also have this next item with their breakfast which comes under the same food group. But I like to have the sort of carbohydrate overload that would, frankly, be illegal. They can be called 'fries', 'french fries', 'pommes frites', but in England they are called something else. What?
7. It's probably wise to include a portion of your fruit/vegetable/salad quota for the day too. That way you can feel smug about your fry-up, if slightly confused at the huge bloated feeling afterwards when you'd convinced yourself you'd just had a salad. What two foods from this group are usually served with a British fry-up, even if they are left to one side afterwards for the dog?
8. No British fry-up would be complete without the next item. It can be fried, boiled and poached, but I like mine scrambled. No more clues needed I'm sure. What food am I waffling on about now?
9. Now your breakfast is cooked, and all piled precariously on a plate too small for the job, so that you can feel better about yourself. But you need to add one final thing on the plate that personally I couldn't do without. It is a popular sauce invented in England, and is fruity, slightly spicy, and brown! What is it?
10. A final prerequisite to the fry-up (other than a maximum strength 'Pepcid') is a nice, hot drink to wash it all down with. The British are known for loving their cups of tea, and a fry-up without a bucket of it would just be rude. My favourite brand ran adverts on television with talking chimpanzees, which became very famous, and the monkey is still their emblem today. Which well known brand of tea is this?
