I'm probably the only person on this forum that doesn't know what a bacon roll is! So I had to google...the curiousity was killin' me! Just in case there's one more person here that doesn't know:

Bacon rolls/baps
The convenient round shape of Ayrshire-cured bacon is grilled or fried and used as a filling for a bap or roll. Bacon rolls made with a hard-crusted, chewy, Glasgow rolls are popular hand-held fast foods, which may be eaten at any time of the day.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From Scotland, world cholesterol centre, comes the "Bacon Roll Dispensing Vending Machine".
Both elements, roll and bacon, are kept frozen and cooked on demand for that freshly made taste. Imagine a snake-like conveyor belt with seperate comparments side by side. Bacon has decent amount of fat on it, roll is of the correct "Chewy morning roll slathered with butter" variety.

Stock is kept frozen until correct money is inserted, whereupon conveyor advances one unit, dispensing roll and bacon onto seperate conveyors. Roll passes though a micowave chamber (5s at 2kW?), bacon under an intense halogen grill, flipped halfway, visable from the outside through glass screen. Bacon is flipped onto roll, and emerges from chute. Total time elapsed, 20 seconds.

If machine is not used for 30 minutes, it cleans itself like an automatic toilet.

Yum.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Being a frenchman I was not really used to the delicate and refined Scottish cuisine for my first attempt at eating a Scoobie. It remained in my body for a very short period of time (i.e. from Botanic Garden roundabout to Queen Margaret Bridge which is about 20 meters far) and the experience was far from "satisfrying". But as you said this roll is reserved to taxi drivers on shift and drunken students returning home and i obviously do not belong to the first category. That's why I decided to give the roll a second try.Time helping I grew fond of the fried thingy. All this to say I would never allow a machine to replace "Maggie"(the kind woman sacrifrying her life for our welfare). But you can't stop technology. So technically speaking you would have to make sure that the frying oil is kept for at least 5 years to get the true "Glasgow West End Scoobie flavour"....And the rolls would also have to be stale.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh, thanks a lot for popping this back to the top. Now I'm craving a soft white barm cake stuffed with crisp bacon and oozing molten butter and ketchup (maybe with a fried egg too). Ordinarily not such a problem, just pop to shop on the way home, but THERE IS NO BACON IN THIS COUNTRY!!. Only crappy "breakfastbakon" that"s so thin it's see-through and shatters as soon as you touch it.

It's times like these that make me seriously doubt the wisdom of my decision to leave the UK.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And for Bonnie!

I knew this girl from Texas who couldn't eat bacon. I asked her why & she told me that during a visit to her parents Farm, she looked out the kitchen window during breakfast and saw two pigs having intercourse. As her mother was serving her breakfast (bacon, eggs & homemade biscuits), she commented to her daughter, "Well looky there! Them pigs is makin' bacon!" And the poor girl hasn't been able to stomach the thought of eating bacon ever since.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dang, Bill, I'm drooling just from googling a bacon roll...but since we don't have real bacon over here, I'm wondering how to improvize and make me some...is the roll a special type of roll, too?

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, but I'm flippin' hungry and the title of the thread got me! :D

What do you mean "real Bacon"? what's different about Scottish bacon from American bacon? I've never been to Europe at all, so please excuse ignorance...but just the idea of a bacon roll sounds good...

American bacon just isn't REAL bacon....

I think the closest you guys get to it is what you refer to as Canadian bacon....


mmmmmmmmmmmmmm bacon ...the crispier the better...


While we're talkin of UK cuisine.... I havn't had a chip buttie in ages....

Damn don't it just make us Scots so civilized and cool, such a delightful range of dishes to give to the world!:wtf

Bacon Rolls
Chip butties
and don't forget Haggis and black pudding (this also served at breakfast with bacon, eggs, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, fried bread and toast!) No wonder we are so unhealthy! :drinkup

Ande don't forget the latest offering from Scotland deep fried Mars Bar in batter!:eek:

However, just made Fresh Coffee and the applewood smoked bacon is sizzling in the grill ! :dancesmil

AWWWWWWWWWWW HELL Stevo.:censor Now you gone and done it. Down here in the South we DO have real bacon. Comes from those very fat hogs we butcher on a regular basis. And we like it crunchy also. But what we really like is country sauage patties with our aigs n grits. YUMMMM YUMMMMM And even better is COUNTRY ham. Not that citified ham them Yankees eat but the real Thwang. And you better have lots to drink with that ham.

Nah, it's jist nae the same lass... the stuff wi hae here is guid thick rashers, neen oh thon wee skinny things ye hae ower there. Now fit ye dae is pit it under a grill for aboot 3 minutes each side, till it's rikt crispy and sizzlin.

Then ye get a Floury bap, spread wie frseh salted butter and slap i bacon in, then jist a drizzle o HP broon sauce, and there ye go a Roll fit fer a King. Damn noo i'll hae tae go and mak een, that fair got me belly rumblin and the mooth watering.

Noo, if yer efter ony mare rare scottish recipies, jist gie me a shout.

I wiz in thon place Miami and that ither place Key West a coupla years ago, and there wiz nae shortage o damn fine food bit nae a decent bacon roll tae be seen. And man oh man, ye see some sikts in thon Key West place... I wiz jist gled i wizznae wearin me kilt, think it widda been lifted a lot o times!!!

UK bacon is basicly the American bacon with the small piece of ham (what's used for Canadian Bacon) at the under side of it still connected. It's pretty good. Pigs over here isn't fattened up as much as in the states either so it fries up leaner and less greese. They don't smoke bacon over here though much so if I get it off base I usually have to smoke it myself.

Ahhh bacon. Had a bacon roll this morning, just with non smoked back bacon. Yum.

I really like about 3 rashers of back or middle cut bacon, fried with a little olive oil in a pan. Once done to taste, crispy or not, I put in about half a can of chopped tomatoes (or plum, I'm not fussy) a few bits of chopped basil and a shake of lemon juice. Heat for a while longerso the mess boils off a bit and then on the plate with some fresh baked wholemeal bread, possibly toasted (wiv butter on of course). mmmmmmmmm. off to the kitchen right now!

Whiffi.
