Crispy or non-crispy?

Brown sauce versus red sauce discussion optional.

I vote for crispy on the outside and well cooked throughout, but not break into pieces crispy.

NO SAUCE FFS

WOT HAILE SAID! NO SAUCE!

Crisp can be ok, but crispy is strictly for the the feeble-minded and even they may be susceptible to thoughtful training.

BROWN SAUCE!

broad beans?

Usage: there seems to be a difference between crisp and crispy food.

crisp = apple, lettuce, celery

crispy = bacon, toast, croutons

Nonsense. "Crispy" is simply infantile. I suppose it might just be permissible between consenting adults in private, but otherwise it's a twee embarrassment.

I agree, crispy bacon is shatteringly bad. Lacerates my throat.

RosyLovelady - 07 Nov 2016 07:15:50 (#10 of 188)

Anyway, bacon should always be cooked and served with the rind on. It's still occasionally possible to find bacon with rind, and I'm off to thatLondon this very day to buy a supply at eye-watering expense.

TinyMcOtter - 07 Nov 2016 07:15:57 (#11 of 188)

OK, let's get some definitions in place:

1. Crispy = bacon which shatters when you try to stick a fork in it. WRONG!

2. Crisp = nice and crackly on the outside, well cooked, but still pliable. CORRECT AND RIGHT! Especially with brown sauce.

3. Anaemic, soggy and bouncy bacon. So wrong, it's barely worth discussing.

No sauce unless you count the egg yolk from the fried eggs you should be serving with your bacon. If

RosyLovelady - 07 Nov 2016 07:24:33 (#13 of 188)

Egg yolk should always be unequivocally hard, and the white of a fried egg should have brown frilly edges (what you little children would probably call "crispy".)

"I like crispy bacon on a crisp autumn morning."

RosyLovelady - 07 Nov 2016 07:33:30 (#15 of 188)

See, it's perfectly easy to say "crisp" without resorting to baby-speak..

Blue cheese and Bacon. Gorgonzolla, Stilton, Campazolla. Lovely

BadgerDancing - 07 Nov 2016 07:40:13 (#18 of 188)

I overcooked a fried egg on Saturday. I was heartbroken.

RosyLovelady - 07 Nov 2016 07:41:11 (#19 of 188)

Pull yourself together, man.

BadgerDancing - 07 Nov 2016 07:44:08 (#20 of 188)

It's too soon.
