Ulster Fry

Ulster Fry

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 thick bacon slices
  • 2 sausages
  • 1 vegetable roll (sausage meat mixed with scallions)
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 soda farl (flat version of soda bread)
  • 2 potato farls (Irish potato bread)
Slice tomatoes in half, place in low heat frying pan with a little oil.

Drop vegetable roll and sausages into frying pan and cook on low heat.

Slice mushrooms in half and pop into frying pan.

Place bacon under a medium-heat grill.

Move tomatoes under grill with bacon.

Slice soda farls in half through the middle, exposing the inner bread.

Cut potato farls in half, to create triangles.

Remove sausage, vegetable roll and mushrooms from frying pan. Keep warm under the grill.

Crack eggs into frying pan and cook gently.

Remove eggs once cooked.

Add more oil to pan and turn heat to high.

When hot, but not smoking, add potato and soda farls to pan. Turn constantly to cook evenly.

Remove when golden brown.

Serve immediately.


The pride of Ulster! The "true fry" that would make an Englishman cry with shame.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Catwoman for this recipe.

Ulster is mostly in Northern Ireland which is a part of the United Kingdom so the correct flag is a Union Flag. No Ulster Fry would be eaten south of the border. They have an Irish Fry down there. I think you should remove the Irish Tricolour from this page.

If you haven't had it... you have to try it. I spent 2 months in Ireland and breakfast is one of my favorite memories. Good Irish Pubs have it here sometimes - almost as good.

I live in England and we can get potato and soda farls here. Very tasty. I toast or grill them eat them with eggs and tomatoes. This sounds really good!

You definitely need Wheaten Farl. Without it in your recipe I could think you aren't real Irish stock.
