    There is nothing like an irish breakfast fry.

    Does anyone have any idea with black and white pudding and sausages have carbs? I know the eggs should be ok and the bacon probably but not sure about the other things.

    Thanks

    there may be a certain amount of cereal/rusk in the black or white puddings maybe accounting for the carbs.

    I DO miss Black pudding although I'm too squeamish to make a lowcarb home made one-it would remind me of Stephen Kings film 'Carrie' too much ! :sick: :lol:

    You can get sausage with a high pork content that contains 1-2g of carbs, not sure about white pudding as I've never had it but black pudding (butchers shop) contains about 15g of carbs depending how thick it is cut, Asda own brand black pudding has 7g of carbs but the slices are a bit on the small size.

    I'm not keen on the Bury black pudding, find it has a perfume like taste to it and don't like the texture at all, my local butchers makes his own which is so much nicer :)
