Staffordshire Oatcake

They are like huge, delicious, thin, soft crumpets. Only widely available in Staffordshire or Derbyshire (where it is traditional to have them smothered in grilled cheese and wrapped around some bacon or sausages, or both!). I can’t rate them highly enough as the bready component of a fryup, they are absolutely gorgeous.


I wasn’t in the mood for a huge fryup tonight but for the record this was – Edwards of Conwy dry-cured streaky bacon, Forestiere mushrooms, Bury white pudding, Old Cotswold Legbar egg, Sainsbos lamb, rosemary & garlic chipolatas, a lovely Edwards of Conwy best pork banger, Branston beans and of course two astounding Staffordshire oatcakes.
