Default British dishes

I made bubble and squeak tonight, I've never made it before but it was gorgeous! What Brit dishes do you find you've been making more often than you used to, or have you made a first attempt at a Brit dish now you're here in the US?

But that relies on good sausages, and they don't exist around here. Or have you stumbled across somewhere that sells them?

I can just about make do with the hot Italian sausages in a pasta dish, the rest are

Don't know if you have ever tried this place when you are in the area?

http://www.dittmers.com/sausages.htm

I've only been a couple of times, I rarely get to do my grocery shopping during their opening hours, but they had the best sausages we've had while living here. Must get back.

Have you tried this brand: http://www.molinarisalame.com/

I fell in love with their "Fresh Sicilian style sausage made with fennel seed and spices." http://www.molinarisalame.com/p_rawfresh.php about 10 years ago and have never looked for a different sausage since. They used to sell them at my local Andronico's and Lunardi's.

PROPER Shepherd's Pie with minced lamb, or what the yanks call it - with beef?

(made with beef, it becomes a cottage pie)

OK, I hang my head in shame. Just cannot get good lamb here so have to make do with beef. Still love it though and never found a decent "Shepherd's Pie" in any US eatery.

I've heard there's a pork version called swineherd's pie. I bet it is. So what's the vegetarian tofu version? I vote for calling it a "don't bother".

I also make myself a ploughman's lunch every now and then. I like them. I don't like the ale (I could never force myself to like beer), so I have cider instead.

Gah, why do so many savoury items have to contain corn syrup over here!

Around here, the only butchers are in the grocery stores, but I should try our local "top-end" grocery store Harmons, as their fresh meat counter (rather than the chiller cabinets with pre-packaged items) looks interesting.

Made a turkey broccoli bake out of the Dairy Book of Home Cookery that I brought with me - that cookbook has been used by Mum since it first came out in '68, I think Plenty of other British recipes in there that we shall be trying
