One of our favorite food names has always been "bubble and squeak." This always makes us think of something from Macbeth, though it's really just a simple breakfast hash made from the fried leftovers of the previous night's cabbage and roast!
Other favorites include "birds in a nest" and "eggs in a basket," both terms for an egg fried inside a hole cut in a piece of bread. In the US, this dish is also sometimes called "toad in a hole," though our British friends scoffed at this. To them, this term refers to a dish of sausages and Yorkshire pudding.
We also came up with "bangers and mash" (sausages and mashed potatoes with gravy), "beef on weck" (thinly-sliced beef on a special "weck" roll), "limping susan" (okra and rice), and "hoppin' john" (beans and rice).
