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!

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....

welll, Canadian Bacon seems more like ham to me. Oh, It's good, to be sure, but it's never as crisp and crunchy like American bacon.
