Top ten delicious foods from Northern Ireland!

Our Year 4 class picked 10 favourite foods from Northern Ireland and we voted for our favourite. Below is our top ten foods from Northern Ireland!

1.   Ulster fry

A tasty breakfast treat in Northern Ireland, the Ulster fry is the favourite meal in our class. In the meal you can have sausages (beef or pork), bacon, soda bread, potato bread, fried tomato and a lovely fried egg or two. A squirt of brown sauce or tomato ketchup really adds to the flavour! All these items are fried with a light drizzle of vegetable oil in a frying pan. Preferred drink with this meal is a cup of tea with milk and two spoonfuls of sugar. Mmmmm yummy! J
2.   Irish Stew

Irish stew consists of boiled potatoes, cooked chunks of beef, carrot and peas (optional) all boiled in a nice beef stock.
3.   Soda bread

Soda bread or a soda ‘farl’ is our favourite bread. It is an important  part of the Ulster fry (our favourite Northern Irish meal) where is sliced in half horizontally and fried. It is particularly tasty when freshly baked and you can put some butter and jam on it!
4.   Yellowman

Yellowman, or Yellaman, is similar to honeycomb. Yellowman is sold in non-standard blocks and chips and is associated with the Ould Lamma Fair in Ballycastle, County Antrim.
5.   Tayto crisps

Our favourite crisps, made in Tandragee, County Armagh. There are numerous flavours such as cheese and onion, smoky bacon and salt and vinegar to name just a few.
6.   Wheaten bread

Wheaten bread can be served as part of a traditional Ulster breakfast or even for afternoon tea. It tastes great when served warm and using butter, jam or cheese.
7.   Champ

Champ is an Ulster dish, made by combining mashed potatoes and chopped scallions "spring onions" with butter and milk, and optionally, salt and pepper. It is simple and inexpensive to produce.
8.   Potato bread

Potato farls are slices (usually around 0.5-1 cm in thickness) of soft potato bread, lightly powdered with flour and are common in Ulster, especially Northern Ireland. They are traditionally used as one of the distinguishing items of food in an Ulster Fry, where they are shallow-fried on both sides for a short time.
9.   Vegetable roll

Another uniquely Northern Irish speciality, vegetable roll – slices of peppery minced beef, flavoured with fresh leek, carrot, tomatoe and onion. It is fried in a shallow vegetable oil on both sides.
10.       Veda

Veda bread is a malted bread sold in Northern Ireland. It is a small, caramel-coloured loaf with a very soft consistency when fresh.
