Greasy, salty, sugary, lardy, floury baps of joy
......or not ?
what are they?
I've never been to aberdeen.
They are kinda flat bread baps. If that makes sense. Sweetish, and usually a little salty too. Lard is a favoured ingredient, and they sizzle in the toaster, mmmmmmm. Need to stop, or i'll ging mad. I've got a pic of Willie Miller and Alex McLeish holding a gigantic one, but that's going too far. Stand free peeps
sadly haven't had one for nearly 7 years.
Butteries rock man..... i get a batch down to London every time i go up to Aberdeen on Business or when some comes down 'Butteries we NEED butteries'
I have had a pittodrie pie on a few occasions, I have no idea what they put in them...
Yes, i bloody love them they are joy with added lard- which is how things should be.
Lard+Salt+Carbs = JOY
Thats an official Shelley FACT
The only picture of a butterie on the interweb
*gets wet feet from all the stroober drool*
that does look mighty fine, that make me ham and cheese toastie look a bit crap
teehee, I could go and buy some right now if I wanted too.
Rowies are indeed the food of the gods. I introduced wiskey to them and now I have to take some down everytime I go south.
Btw rowies are a bit different to butteries afaik. Where's pogofish when you need him?
I miss 'em
shells, will bring you some back from the frozen north
Someone bring me one!
It's been really mild for days, so if you feel cold when you get here it's coz you've become a softie southerner
Mmm, butteries...Not had them in far too long but getting some visitors from Aberdeen on Boxing Day who better bring some down...or else...
Eating a tattie scone with cheese & bacon!
Butteries are a more Angus/Dundee & as their name suggests, use butter instead of Lard. Bit softer/doughier as well IIRC. Been years since I last ate one.
Yup, Thains bakery in late-night munchie mode is a true wonder. Half a dozen 2nd-day rowies for 50p Just delicious, toasted with cheese or Tate & Lyles Golden Syrup. 2nd-day is just fine as Rowies keep for ages, traditionally they were made to last without special storage on the fishing boats. Some relatives swear that they don't reach their best till they are about a week old.
Another recent innovation is the Veggie Rowie. Dearer, but sometimes also available 2nd-day for the same price. For once, the switch to Veg fat makes no difference to the quality of the Rowie & indeed, I prefer them to traditional as I tend to like my rowies less greasy. However, if you want the full-fat experience, go for Aitkens or Grampian Bakery! Both made amongst the fish-houses in Torry!
Rowiessssssssssss Are Too Nice!!
Aye a toasted rowie wi' butter would be fine right now... should have got some some when i was up there, d'oh!
I will be head up to the deen on the 9th of Feb.
I you want a butterie order lemmie know!!
*as he munches though his secret butterie stash*
I am having a bacon and coleslaw filled rowie for my lunch. It's YUMMY (and leaking a bit)
That sounds lush
I'm now down to only 8 left in the freezer...
i only have ten left *panics and runs round room arms flapping*
Sooooooo wrong but dirtily good *drools*
oh btw new taste sensation
Butterie+Mayo (thin layer)+Branson (thin layer) = Brekfast of champions
Shit! I feel a late-night blat to Thains coming on. Been sitting here wondering what I'd like to eat. Then I checked this thread.
Hmmm, cheese, syrup or one of each? Choices!
is a shuch no a drain by the way?
Dunno actually, but 'shuch aye' was/is common parlance amongst the park keeping team in Hazelhead in the early nineties. I didn't understand half of what was being said, conversations like this were common:
Parkie 1: Hoot toot
Parkie 2: Aye
Parkie 1: Shuch aye
Parkie 2: Schuch
Parkie 3: Aye
All while gazing out upon the drizzle through shed window
Took a couple of rowies out of the freezer last night to celebrate each of the Dons goals at easter road
Had them for breakfast with jam, and felt like a king for five mins. Must try the branston/mayo combo...
How do you have a thin layer of Branston? Isn't it chunky anymore?
I'm going back to the Deen for a wee holiday next week!!! Time to gorge on tattie scones and stock up the rowies
