fried bread

My mum is 84, from Manchester and I am trying to give her little treats that she remembers and one is fried bread and one would not think something this simple would be so hard to get right.Does anyone have a good recipe for Fried bread ?

Fried bread

You are right it is simple - as are poached eggs and how often are they not perfect ?!
I ran a guest house years ago and it was always requested by the men. The lessons I learned were to use soft white bread - nothing remotely artisan - secondly, to have the fat/oil really hot. Once you have popped in the bread, it should sizzle,turn down the heat and leave a minute or so then flip over.Drain on kitchen towel, serve and forget the calories !
Hope that helps.

I agree with sandra (didn't know you ran a B & B). the whitest of normal bread, and i use crisp and dry oil - its a rape seed oil. and it takes moments on each side. oil nice and hot too

Nothing nicer than fried bread cooked in the fat that eggs and bacon have fried in. You do need to buy decent bacon so you have some fat, not that horrible water stuff that comes out of cheap bacon.

Mmmm memories

As a treat, and not too often because of course in this day and age, we now watch our fat intake etc etc, I make fried bread with Sunday Breakfast.
I remember when my husband (married 45 years) and I were first dating, his Mum used to make fried jam butties. She would make a jam sandwich, fry it and sprinkle sugar on it for dessert - it was so yummy.

I can remember that one of the first things we made after the lesson of washing tea towels etc in domestic science was a fried cheese sandwich. They were called cheese dreams and very nice they were too.

I wouldn't use an uncut farmhouse/bloomer type loaf of bread - just buy "plastic" bread from any supermarket, you know the type i mean, ie, the miller who is married to a queen, or, sivoh (am sure you can work that cryptic out, lol), or shops own.....if you don't like that type of bread for your sandwiches (this type of bread makes great cheese toasties too) you can always turn it into breadcrumbs, for your stuffing or chicken escalopes etc.

shelley...

just realised reading a reply from you about roasting potatoes, that you probably won't know the bread brands i was talking about - as your in Canada...whoops, should have been more nosey before i replied again. So, unless you have supermarkets that sell their own white sliced bread - then yes do get a nice loaf from the bakers.

I want some fried bread now. It's been years.

I do agree with everyone else, it just needs to be a cheapo white loaf. The same type of loaf is also best if you use it in one of those old toasted sandwich makers (Which I also have a fondness for!)

We all love it. For me it has to have good sharp orange marmalade on it. What do you like on yours?

Fried bread

We always had fried bread on sunday, when we were kids. Dad would do a fried breakfast about 10 o'clock, never had time to sit down with us as we were always asking for more.

First time i cooked fried bread for my french husband he thought i was mad, soon changed his mind once he tried it.

Just thought, i have never made any since moving here( 10 years ago).
White bread & oil now on shopping list for next week.

Janice, I've never seen any one put any thing on top of fried bread.

It's just eaten as it is.
