    Oh yeah no down here has very good trout farming, so usually I get fresh trout from a local hatchery sometimes. Thanks for telling me about the gills, I would just have chucked the whole thing in there no questions asked.

    Trout is also an oily fish, so be careful that the stock doesn't become greasy; you could probably skim some of it off but it may not get rid of the problem entirely. If you're looking for a base for creamy soups, this probably won't be a problem as you could emulsify the fats, but I would not recommend it for a clear stock base.

    Fried eggs should have crunchy bits at the underside and runny yolks.

    And scrambled eggs should never be runny.

    my foremost requirement for eggs is that there be No Runny Whites, followed closely by Runny Yolks Good, Cronch Yes

    I have at one point enjoyed Creamy scrambled eggs but their preparation is a feat I can't quite manage on my own

    Also, question; are hash browns/latkes really That Good?

    they absolutely can be! as a fan of potato and crispness, they can be the apex of both those things, or, merely an acceptable potato substance

    this year I made latkes for xmas, because why not, and it was fucking incredible

    (It reads "AMERICAN FOLLOWERS what do you call this" above a picture of what ive gathered is a chip butty)

    The OP said theyre british and just want to know what americans would call it

    As a canadian i WILL throw the first stone and say: idk about other areas but i have never encountered ths IRL and don't expect to unless some restaurant is like ~british themed~ (eta: and thus i would just make up a name and call it a fries sandwich)

    Ppl who enjoy them can have my share of them, it looks like just a buncha starch and salt between untoasted white bread, which sounds texturally too bland for me

    yeah uh
    I would call that "my older brother's latest attempt at food heathenry," I have literally never seen anyone seriously make a Fries Sandwich

    I've seen people put fries on sandwiches that had other things on them, but not just fries. I was decidedly not a fan even with other fillings.

    i've heard of chip butties and i think they look too starchy. they would get stuck in my throat, i cant have that many potatoes in my mouth at once with only a bit of butter or mayo. i imagine they began as a cheap, filling food though, and just grew to be a part of the culture. get some potatoes, stick them in bread to keep your fingers cleaner. stick to your ribs or whatever.

    don't knock the chip butty till you've tried it, it's good

    you want vinegar on the chips, obviously. And ideally pepper as well as salt.

    I can not imagine just fries on fucking white bread, even with salt pepper and vinegar. No. Just no.

    Chips aren't really the same as fries though. The texture is very different.

    Having had them a couple of times in England, both from a pub and a fish and chips shop: no they're just fries. More like steak fries or like, nice sports bar fries than McDonald's fries for sure, but they're the same texture.

    Also I'd eat that a) of the bread was grilled with butter and b) if it had mayo on it, I'm late to say, but probably not as presented in the photo, bread too dry and soft.

    Throw some melted cheese on it, and change the type of bread too.

    okay, I must rescind my bafflement at the chip butty, I just seriously considered making a Potato Sandwich (with hashbrown rather than chips, but yknow)
    as... sick food, bc mild carbs/starch like soft bread and potat usually plays well with my nausea
