    Spotted DiÁk
    Ok I know that thread title definitely got a lot of folks to look inside!!!...but I came across something very interesting this evening...and I figure it may be something our UK members (and maybe even other Commonwealth members) may be very familiar with..."Spotted DiÁk" (read the Wikipedia link to learn more about it):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotted_****

    I'm definitely a "foody" type person...so I found it interesting. Certainly a more catchy name than "Poutine", "Vegemite", or "Bangers & Mash". Although "Bangers & Mash" comes real close!

    Nick, ever see a movie called King Ralph? It stared John Goodman. That was the first time I had heard of Spotted ****. When he first hears the name he takes it dirty! I searched for it to be sure it was for real!

    The movie was 1991.

    If you are a foody, then look up Toad-in-the-hole and bubble-and-squeak, two more British concoctions.

    Its more like a sponge with fruit, usually currants in it.

    Best made from scratch (the tinned stuff isn't the best)

    Very stodgy and very filling, a very nice pudding, especially with custard, dontt let the name put you off

    More commonly known as 'Boarding House Pudding' here. Bubble and squeak can be described as hash browns using left over vegetables. Tell me Nick how did you get the word '****' in? Tried entering name of a leading Australian IT retailer and would not accept such a 'crude' nickname for Richard Smith. A mods only perk?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Toad-in-the-hole

    I think thats a Welsh dish, basically baked eggs and flour made into a batter pudding with sausages added to the mix before baking.

    Its basically Yorkshire pudding with sausages (Google Yorkshire pudding - its not a pudding by the way)

    I think Yorkshire pudding is one of the great unsung greats of british food. It would be interesting if any other countries have a similar dish since its hard to explain it to someone who isn't British or Irish

    One of the keys to successful Yorkshire pudding is to have the pan really hot in the oven before you add the egg mixture. If you start with a cold pan, you get what is essentially an unscrambled scrambled egg. Gelatinous and horrible. But with a hot pan, it's lovely.
