Default What are you going to miss during the Pork Ban?

I think I will miss these the most:

• Ranch salad with crispy bacon sprinkled on top
• Bacon & eggs on Friday mornings
• Chicken & bacon escalopes (Nigella)
• Pork chops & mustard mash
• Chilli with chorizos
• Cumberland sausages
• Pepperoni on my pizza.

What is everyone else going to miss?

Bacon Butties (once my stock in the freezer runs out), hopefully my odd trip to the UK will satisfy my desires

Ethos83 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: What are you going to miss during the Pork Ban?

I've got 600 AED worth of pork in the freezer.

Should be ok for a long time.

But once it runs out I'll just miss having ham bits and lardons as the base of soups and pasta sauces. And sausages. Especially sausages. I can outeat the Germans when it comes to sausages.
