Recipe by English_Rose

Serves four hungry miners! For about a century, until the 1970s, this dish was a tradition in most Fife miners' homes for a late Sunday breakfast after church, their only day off. This recipe is a little more elaborate than the original - serve it with scones, mash or baked potatoes. From A Cook's Tour of Scotland by Sue Lawrence.
