just as a matter of interest a quick question to all fellow brits.
what did/do you call a bread roll in your area.
where i grew up within the space of 4 miles i went from bap to cob to roll and back again
Ooh—now here"s a topic that could become incendiary. Up here, that would be a butty, though my English wife seems to think a butty involves sliced bread—nonsense, I know
Actually, a Scotsman on The Weakest Link was once asked what a butty was, and his answer of "a bread roll" was deemed incorrect. Poor show. Just like the student who answered "500 miles" was deemed correct, when asked how far The Proclaimers were willing to walk, on University Challenge; there"s no justice.
My wife bakes her own rolls from time to time. Sometimes, they ARE incendiary!
As for butties - they are definitely sarnies, not rolls (baps and cobs are of course sub-species of rolls)
