How about an Irish breakfast for brunch this coming weekend in honor of St. Patrick’s Day? An Irish breakfast includes eggs, beans, tomatoes, black and white pudding, Irish bacon, Irish sausages (bangers) and potatoes. It’s a great hearty breakfast for the cold weather. For those who don’t know, black pudding is a blood pudding made with oatmeal, spices and pork fat. While it sounds gross, it’s actually pretty tasty. White pudding is similar sans the blood.
Does anyone remember Thady Con’s Irish pub in Midtown East? I used to love that place. They had the best Irish breakfast in the city. It was also a very happening spot on St. Patrick’s Day. I was really sorry to see it close.
