A Limerick A Day


Mince on toast, declared a ‘quintessential British food classic’

We all know our neighbours can boast
Some tasty treats to put on toast
They’ll pour beans and say please
To mountains of cheese
But mince is the thing they like most.

    Conor McGregor should fight mince on toast on behalf of the quintessential Irish comfort classic, porridge in a bun.

        Terry would win.

        All Terry would have to do is glance ferociously at his opponent, and his will would be done.

    Delicious things in my sambo’s:
    Fried Egg/Beans/Potato mashed up and ‘spread’
    Sliced Beetroot…plus many many more.
    I do like the oul sloppy mince in bread but not toast…that’s so weird!

          ooh can we have a good recipie thread ?
          just let it all hang out
          one of my favourite games is knowing exactly what you’d eat for your last meal
          you just don’t know someone until then

            Mash a bannannananana. Add milk, honey, sugar, cinnamon. Melt butter in a frying pan. Dip slice of bread in mixture until fully coated. Fry. Serve with butter or maple syrup or golden syrup or nutella or whatever. Eat your way happily to an early grave.

        Nutella should only ever be eaten off a spoon or between 2 digestives. How anyone can put Nutella on bread is beyond me, granted, I am fully aware of my abominations above… :-)

        1. Nigel

          You put nutella on bread (toasted preferably, mince optional) in order to mimic acceptable social eating behaviours, so it’s a kind of culinary camouflage to partially conceal your nutella savagery.

            Kudos on the butter fried bread, coated in mushed banana, milk, honey, sugar, cinnamon and topped with maple syrup and/or nutella…sounds delish….if you are as hungry as a diamond without a carrot!

    Keep writing them. If Bob Dylan could win the Nobel, shur it might go to a Limerick writer some day too.
