IT’S the iconic Scottish breakfast loved by all – a simple roll filled with the delicacy of your choice.
But do you prefer your breakfast roll with potato scone, egg, bacon or square sausage? Are you a breakfast doubler, or even a tripler? A well-fired roll or soft?

Traditional baker Brownings, in Kilmarnock, was formed in 1945 by John Gall’s grandparents making him the third generation, and his son the fourth, to run the business.
Brownings also supplies Aldi with 21,000 potato scones weekly as well as pancakes, sultana scones, and the famous Kilmarnock pie.
“I am proud to say we are one of the biggest bakery suppliers to Aldi in Scotland,” says John Gall, who admits he’s a triple filling man.
“I’d go for sliced sausage, fried egg and a tattie scone every time,” he admits.
“Not every day, but as my comfort food on the morning after the night before.”
Aldi also sells John’s favourite fillings, including Scottish Steak Slice Sausage at £1.49; Medium Scottish Free Range Eggs from Farmlay Eggs in Aberdeenshire at 79p for six, and Ayrshire Middle Bacon, £1.49
