2 bacon rashers, back and streaky
2 sausauges, 2 slices black or white pudding
1/2 farl of soda bread
1 potato farl
1 - 2 large eggs
4 tbsps oil for frying
The secret of preparing a good fry is to cook the food in the right order. Start with the bacon and sausages, this adds flavour to the cooking oil. Then add the black or white pudding. Cut the soda bread in half and fry along with the potato bread until golden brown. Finish off with the egg.
