Ferg's Traditional Ulster Fry

    25 min

    This is my famous fry-up! It has everything an Irish fry up should have...bacon, sausages, fried soda bread, potato farls, black pudding, fried egg and fried tomato. No baked beans in sight!

    Serves: 2 

    • 2 thick slices Irish bacon
    • 2 sausages
    • 1 soda bread farl, sliced in half horizontally
    • 2 potato bread farls
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or as needed
    • 2 slices black pudding
    • 1 tomato, halved
    • 2 eggs

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C (gas mark 2).
    2. In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the bacon and sausages until they are browned. Reserving the fat in the pan, transfer to a heat resistant dish. Keep warm in the oven.
    3. Fry both sides of the potato and soda farls in the reserved fat for a few minutes, or until they are golden and crispy. Meanwhile, heat oil in smaller frying pan over medium heat and cook black pudding slices and tomato halves. Transfer everything to the dish in the oven to keep warm.
    4. Crack eggs into the pan with any residual bacon grease, adding more oil to the pan if necessary. Fry until egg whites are set but yolks are still runny, or to your liking. Divide everything onto 2 separate plates and serve immediately.

    This is exactly what an Ulster fry is, everything is fried. No beans etc are added. I have lived in Northern Ireland all my life and thank you Fergusa for sharing an authenic recipe and keeping it true.  -  01 Nov 2012


    Dude, that is so in depth for what is basically just "JUST FRY IT" Fry all the things until they are cooked like you like them. And definitely have more than one rasher of bacon each....who only has one......that is wrong. WRONG. Step 1: Pan Step 2: Food Step 3: JUST FRY IT xD  -  12 Feb 2018
