Egg banjo: did I ruin it or... "upgrade" it?

#1
Reincarnation exists.

While "grazing" chez sister, decided to make myself an egg banjo, which has of course been mathematically proven to be "food of the Gods".

Now the only foreseeable drawback was the distinct lack of sufficiently stale and manky bread to construct the layered confection.

Indeed the only bread I could find was some high-class, very fresh, errrm cibatti, ciabatter, ci-somethingorother.

The traditional banjo filling duly stuffed inside; greasy egg, ketchup in liberal proportions and cheese, I began to munch.

Normally one of these creations fills monsieur with delctible and pregnant sheer taste. One definately of, ahem, dare I say it, low class. Nowt wrong with that, just it doesn't strike one as being quite, err delicate enough for Her Majesty.

But anyway, as I ate this updated egg banjo, I was struck with a queer notion, [nothing to do with Peter Mandleson's idea of queer], the notion that this form of the conconction was truly suitable for the table of Royalty.

Very different to a "normal" banjo and I feel perhaps, a betterment of the original. However it may only take a munch on the version proper to send me flying back swearing the original and best cannot be bettered.

So the question is, did I commit sacrelidge or perform a needed mid-life revision to the classic feed of the Forces? Opinions please.

My dear chap - the fact that you used ketchup rather than that liquid sh1te like substance known as HP/Daddies shows that you have class.

The bread thingys on either side of said banjo are relatively unimportant (note relatively), you have adorned the banjo with the piece of resistance(very French - almost) , thus making it bliss.

I salute you.

Perhaps this is the evolution of the Egg Banjo.

Survival of the fittest in action. Actually maybe not - surely only the most vile banjos would survive when subjected to Darwin's principles as they would never be eaten, go on to reproduce and take over the world etc etc....

I'm a bit of a bluff traditionalist. Two slices of bread heavily buttered, one or two fried eggs.......dab of Daddies or HP...........eat.

Cheese? That's all right for your nancy boy continental types, old man.........but this is England.

Auld Sapper gave the origin ages ago

Egg drips on shirt, banjo movement to clean up mess

Bread unimportant in that definition

Brown Sauce though

Being a bit of a purist, no sauce at all on mine. A good runny yoke should provide all the lubrication and additional taste any Banjo could ever need. Not to mention all that fat that the egg was fried in in the first place. Pure Bliss!!

egg banjo~food of gods

subject all ready covered recently!!
Agreed but it should be covered in ketchup.

(So what that it has been covered previously/recently or currently - people are enjoying themselves - as are you)

Think really cheap bread is an essential part,
If you don’t have that key ingredient your not gonna have the first bite disintegration.
Nothing better than trying to hold it all together as egg yoke spurts everywhere

Living in a flat country full of wooden shoes, I had to amend my egg banjo habits by adding cheese. I call it the "Kaas uitsmijter banjo", for the cheese slice is placed over the egg to melt whilst it is frying. Other than the simple addition of a bit of the old kaas, it's your usual banjo.

I hang my head in shame.

But what, my friend, is it about the flat country of wooden shoes that forces you to amend your egg banjo's with cheese? :?

Is it some kind of ancient Dutch law that requires all food to be eaten with a minging layer of processed cheese? (Those who've been to Camp Humensford (sp) will know what I mean.) Will a mob of angry Dutchmen beat you to death if it is discovered that you, as an immigrant, had the temerity to dine on a cheese-free sandwhich? Whatever you do, don't knock any important Dutch people off their bicycles, I hear they don't take kindly to that........! 8O

Living in Holland, do you also find yourself legally obliged to smoke weed, appear in hardcore porn movies, 8O wear clogs, like cheesy 'disco' music, and be generally very dull, or is it just cheese in sandwhichs that is compulsory?

"Kin 'ell !! I'm really sorry but it's been so long since I've posted but I can't remember how to paste previous comments, but, egg banjos are egg banjos !! FFS they are NOT open to reinterpretation (is this a word ?) or feckin reinvention (ditto) a feckin egg banjo is a feckin egg banjo, cheese !!!, bread with a fancy name !!! that just makes it a fackin cheese and egg sarnie !!! a banjo is a banjo , anything else is summit different, and by the way I'm posting this pished with the "n" anf the '9" buttons missing on my farkin laptop, how zat for coordination (ditto).

But seriously, an egg banjos an egg banjo, bread, or a bap, butter or marge (optional), brown sauce (as I recall the army never claimed it was HP or Daddies) and (most importantly) a runny egg, the rest is, as they say, in the eating !! Cheese !!! FFS ye canny improve an egg banjo !!!

Don't try !!!

Take 1 x fresh white bread roll, and cut the top off, usind a spoon dig a hole inside it, crack egg into hollowed out roll, place in oven and cook until egg has set into roll.... Red Sauce, on top then place top of roll back onto roll then eat......

If you get the chance 1 x slice of black pudding will also fit inside, + some slivers of bacon, but you must have a Cup of Tea to NATO standard to wash it down with......

Best time I have eaten egg banjo 0200 Hrs Fraggle rock, after 12 hours of rain and vcp's FOOD OF THE GODS :)

And, I've been told, by Cloggies, that the best way ye can impress them is to speak thier Lingo, however, being a mixture of Klingon and Bill and Ben the Flower Pot Men, 'tis not an easy Lingo to master, but a useful phrase to use with an uppity Cloggy is " Who saved yer arse from the the Boxheeds then Hans ? Twice ?" that gets them thinking !!!
