extra gravy, chips, and peas

ReverendBlueJeans - 16 Feb 2021 15:33:06 (#3 of 92)

I'm liking it so far.

Chuck out the pie and use the tin as a drip tray.

If you're planning on going camping, the empty tin makes an excellent frying pan to put on those little camping gas stoves, if you can still get them. You need a pair of pliers to use as a handle, though.

Drizzle with Chili oil.

My mum used to make yorkshire puddings in a fray bentos tin. She used the same one for my entire childhood. She probably still uses it.

The only downside of using a Fray Bentos tin for cooking is that it's a bit smelly until the paint burns off.

Are these pies made in Uruguay? Or do we import the gunge and place into tins here?

tasselhoff - 16 Feb 2021 16:35:06 (#10 of 92)

I was always under the impression they were Argentinian

solomongursky - 16 Feb 2021 16:38:06 (#11 of 92)

Ha ha! U r gay.

I think the pies originate more locally nowadays, meat processing having largely halted in the Uruguayan town some years ago.

The factory area is now some sort of world heritage site.

I have just Googled. My ghast is flabbered.

The Fray Bentos brand has been bought by Baxters and the tinned pies are now produced at their facility in Fochabers, or, as it's also known, 'Unpronounceable-to-Englanders'.

Baxter used to be a high-end tinned food producers. Famously did a 'brace of pheasants' in a tin.

Not any more.

I like mushrooms with chicken pie. That's what I'd have. And some kind of salad.

ReverendBlueJeans - 16 Feb 2021 16:43:55 (#15 of 92)

I like mushrooms with chicken pie

A splendid suggestion. Unfortunately:

- Don't have any mushrooms

- Mrs BlueJeans does not like them.

Fochabers, or, as it's also known, 'Unpronounceable-to-Englanders'.

Google says it's pronounced "Fuck A Bez".

Is that right???

solomongursky - 16 Feb 2021 16:44:43 (#17 of 92)

U r gay

Fuck a bez.

GrrrIbdis - 16 Feb 2021 16:45:16 (#18 of 92)

And Bent Brothers, I suppose, too.....

carterbrandon - 16 Feb 2021 17:34:41 (#19 of 92)

"Fuck A Bez".

Or just twist his melon.

Verdigris - 16 Feb 2021 17:38:43 (#20 of 92)

You can get Fraybentosalike pies in Poundland. Trouble is it takes another pounds-worth of leccy to cook it.
