    Hi Kate

    Sorry I've only just seen this. There are quite a few of these I've never heard of, but that doesn't mean that they didn't originate in the UK icon_biggrin.gif I've made comments within your original post below....

    I would appreciate the forum hosts reviewing the recipes I have designated as English or Irish. Please let me know if any do not meet the criteria. Thank you

    Apple Cheese Sausage Balls #322927
    Not heard of this, but it sounds good...I would think this might be good made into Sausage Rolls which are traditional

    Mom's Curried Egg Mold #319825
    Again, not heard of this, although curried eggs in themselves are traditional...a remnant from the days of the Raj!
    Mrs. Burchell's Chicken Chutney Salad #319943
    Not sure about this one...chicken and chutney though are both British staples...again chutney is an import from India in Victorian times I think
    Open-Faced Egg Salad and Watercress Sandwich #356986
    Egg and cress is very traditional, usually as a sandwich, but we wouldn't use toasted bread, it would be white bread, sometimes with the crusts off
    Curried Fish and Chip Bake #335864
    Fish and chips very traditional as everyone knows. Never heard of doing this to them, but I guess it's a different way of preparing them
    Fiery Chicken Balti by Kishor Paw #482171
    Chicken Balti Curry from Balti Triangle #482169
    Indian curries are now considered to be traditional here, I believe they are one of the most popular take aways
    Steak and Mushroom Pie #482057
    This is perfect
    Bacon and Cabbage #482058

    so is this
    Pub Patties (Burgers) With Horseradish Sauce and Cress #377753
    Again, burgers are now part of our tradional food, so another version is always good. Beef with horseradish is a typical Brit thing
    Bread Sauce by Nigella Lawson #482145
    Yep, this is traditional, usually as an accompaniment to Roast Turkey
    Cranberry-Studded Mincemeat by Nigella Lawson #482136
    Again another version of a traditional recipe, very Christmassy!
    Spotted Dog Cakelike Raisin Bread #482064
    Not heard of this, but I guess it's a version of Spotted Dick, which is a steamed sponge pudding with raisins, that you have hot with custard
    Christmas Rocky Road - Nigella Lawson #482140
    Don't think Rocky Road is traditional. I think Nigella is just adapting it for a Christmas recipe

    Trifle With Fresh Raspberries, Blueberries and Strawberries #363622

    absolutely perfect...there must be a million version of Trifle out there, but the basis of this is fine.

    Hope that all helps a little but. As I say, I think most of these are versions of traditional dishes, and the UK is such an eclectic mix of people, it's not surprising!

    Kate, I'm pretty sure Spotted Dog is a traditional Irish bread.

    The apple sausage balls and the curried egg mold do not seem to be recipes originating from the UK/Ireland. Everything else on your list sounds like it fits into the theme nicely though.
