I only use it on waffles, and it always came across as more of an oily type substance. I feel a bit silly not knowing that.

WHAT?!?! Oily? What kind of maple syrup are you using? It in no way shape or form is supposed to be OILY! You sure it wasn't the heaps of butter you loaded on top?

Ohhhhh, brekkie? Is this how you spell it? I spell it as a short form of 'breakfast" but lets not argue symantics then! You Brits seem to love your language. I would not interfere! Okay, typical Canadian brekkie then:
Bacon, sausage, eggs any style you like, coffee, french toast, definitely with maple syrup, waffles, pancakes, toast & good, homemade jam. I prefer raspberry myself. Not necessarily all together or in that order. There this uh, this other thing I like to indulge in once in awhile, as I know many Canadians do, a good W&B, which makes it that much better! I think that Canadian snowboarder guy likes it for brekkie too!

Ok, you've got my attention. The whole thing sounds fantastic, almost as good as the full English. Humour me, what's a W&B?

I would like to prefice this with: "I'm not endorsing this in any way, shape, or form" just to be PC as Anti says we are. Proper. Wake & Bake. Then the bacon, and waffles, and pancakes, and toast and jam and eggs and french toast taste that much better, if that's even possible, and your belly magically seems to accept it ALL.
Now, what's the typical full English brekkie?I have this to look forward to.Go on, tempt me. I have a feeling this is going to be gooood!

Aaah.. Say no more..

As for the Full English, it's regional and highly debatable. And as I'm from the 'a-hole of the middle' as Anti would put it, here in my opinion is a mighty fine roundup:

Lashings of bacon (or thick gammon steak), fried eggs (2 min), fat sausages (3 min), baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, fried bread, hash browns (traditionally, chips), black pudding, a pile of hot buttered toast, HP Sauce, tomato sauce, hot cup of tea in a big 'builders mug', oh and bread and butter and/or chips (optional) on the side if needed.. yes.gif

Sound alright?

Mmmmm. This sounds like a damn hearty meal! 2 min eggs are perfect. Not quite sure what gammon steak is tho. ?? I'm imagining it to be like good 'ole regular bacon vs back bacon or peameal bacon? Never tried black pudding but that's on my list. I've heard it's very tasty. Sounds delicious. I'm not that big on HP, but it seems like it would go particulary well with the Full English. Infact, I bet it isn't the Full English without it!
Now Scott, you'll be needing one of these brekkies after your first Beerlao experience for sure!!!

Haha, of course, the only way to follow a night on the lash. Since you mention it, the gammon is a thick succulent cut from the hind end of the hog. The thicker the cut, the better, and grilled just enough to make the rind go edibly crisp and large enough to provide a succulent and comfortable sofa for the eggs.. yes.gif

You must Waking, you must. The crispy rind's the best part. I still can't believe you haven't had a sofa of gammon. How d'you guys devour the hog over there?

I think most people eat the hog in a pretty typical way here. Eggs, regular bacon and toast with home fries. That's a breakfast you'd find in most diners anyway. Kinda boring actually. I myself like the back bacon, on an English muffin, with a 3 minute poached egg and some nice cheese. Now that's the ticket! Mmmm. Or once in awhile, a nice eggs Benny. Way too rich for regular consumption. A freakin' artery clogger!! You can feel your heart starting to slow down after the first few bites!
This crispy gammon sounds lovely tho. Will have to have it in December, when I am exposed for the first time to a proper Full English. Will 3 days of the Full English be enough tho??
How can we eat the hog?? Oh let us count the ways......

Are Mounties mocked or held in high regard?

Well, to tell the truth, I think they are mocked alot! It's the get-up. Maybe it's just me? They do look a tad ridiculous which you can see here They also tour! Apparently they draw huge crowds! They do this Musical Ride thing, where they show off their equestrian abilities to music. They don't seem very intimidating to me at all!

I think the mounties are mocked a bit when they're in their full getup, riding on their horses...it's just so....over the top. (ie. more British than the British!)

However, when in their regular, policing garb, less mocking, more respect. They are the police after all!!
