Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand

I have recently read a wonderful book by Helen Simonson called Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand.  It is set in small village England (you probably guessed) and features many of the ideals of Miss Marple-“honor, duty, decorum and a properly brewed cup of tea” as stated on the flyleaf.

In a section of the book,a large number of bacon rolls were served to nourish the gentlemen prior to a shooting party (British sport shooting).  I wondered what a bacon roll was, so I looked it up.

It is simply a bacon sandwich- a breakfast that I have loved forever.  English foods frequently have comical names like bubble and squeak, and neeps and taters- and puddings are not a cornstarch based dessert!
