  • The secret of a good fry is to cook the food in the right order, cooking that which takes the longest first.
  • Fry the sausages in a little oil until cooked, remove from the pan and keep warm.
  • Fry the bacon until crisp, drain and keep warm.
  • Fry the pudding for a few minutes to warm through, remove from the pan and keep warm.
  • Slice the farl and potato cake and lightly brown in the remaining hot oil.
  • Drain and keep warm.
  • Wipe the pan, add a little fresh oil and when hot crack in the eggs and cook until the white begins to set, spooning the oil over the yolk for an attractive milky appearance.
  • Arrange the fried ingredients on a hot plate and serve immediately with strong tea and wheaten bread.
