What Our "Irish Bangers & Eggs" is All About

Irish Bangers and Eggs

The term bangers originated during World War 1 when meat shortages resulted in sausages. With meat shortages, the casing was filled with more water which would cause a bang or pop when cooking. The name stuck, even though you don’t have to worry about your bangers being cheaply made these days. Today, you can find this local dish at many Irish pubs.

Banger is a centuries-old traditional Irish recipe. They consist of lean and fat pork tossed with spices and herbs, which is encased to make a sausage. A banger is delicious with an herbal and peppery taste. 

When an Irish Banger and Egg is Served

An Irish banger and egg are usually served at breakfast but, sometimes replace lunch. This big and hearty breakfast is not one to forget. When cooked properly, this banger is crispy and tight on the outside, while the inside is juicy, soft, and very flavorful. Ask for your eggs any way you want them, as these bangers do the plate justice. Looking for a little extra flavor, go for an Irish scrambler. Contrary to popular belief, the Irish drink more tea than the English, making it a staple piece to this breakfast for a beverage that pairs well with orange juice or tea.
