The Scottish supermarket is a veritable chamber of horrors. There are all kinds of mechanically-seperated meats in tins and innocent vegetables drowning in vats of mayonnaise. But the most terrifying and strangely fascinating of all is Breakfast Pack. It is truly all things good and bad about Scotland shrink-wrapped and presented on a sky blue polystyrene tray.
If you want to recreate the goodness of a full Scottish B&B brekkie in your home without even a cursory nod to nutrition, then the Breakfast Pack is for you. For just £1.98 you will receive:
- black pudding (aka blood sausage, featuring dried ox blood)
- fruit pudding (sultanas and beef fat)
- sliced sausage (rusk and flavour enhancers ahoy)
- pork sausage (with the tantalising promise of 55% minimum meat).
Way back on Easter Sunday, I decided I could no longer ignore the cry of the blue tray and made the purchase in the name of cross-cultural research. I fired up the frypan and waited for the religious experience to begin. It's taken eight months to recover, but now you can finally relive the magic with me, step by lardy step, in this Flickr set.
