Humble Bacon Sarnie Is Still Britonís Favorite Food

According to a new poll, when it comes to comfort eating, Britons love to gorge on a bacon sarnie on white bread.

With their sublime smell and terrific taste, the humble bacon sarnie is still the nation's favorite "guilty" food, despite the growing popularity of exotic, spicy dishes.

The poll of 1,350 readers the BBC Good Food magazine has confirmed that Thai, Indian, Mexican and Chinese cuisine are far behind the sizzling rashers in white bread as comfort foods.

And the second favorite naughty snack for Britons is a chip butty, or the French fry sandwich.

In fact, a traditional Sunday roast or a tasty cottage pie are still the most frequently cooked meals in British homes, despite increasingly popular Italian pasta dishes, now in second place.

"Despite more sophisticated palates, it's reassuring to know that favorites like the bacon sarnie still have a place in the nation's collective kitchen," The Daily Express quoted Good Food magazine editor Gillian Carter as saying.

Eating cold leftovers and even licking the plate are other food habits that Britons wouldn't openly admit.

Fishfingers, crisp-filled sandwiches and peanut butter eaten straight out of the jar are also declared favorites when Brits feel like raiding the refrigerator.

However, the survey also reveals the extent to which home cooking in Britain has been transformed over the past two decades by the influence of overseas cuisine.

More than six in 10 people now prepare Indian and Chinese dishes at home - more than twice those who attempted such styles of cooking 20 years ago.

Over one third of those polled create their own green curry and other popular Thai dishes.
