What do you do with Stottie cakes?

My mums friend (MF) lives in Durham, and her mum lives in my town in Lincolnshire so MF often travels down to visit her mum. She brought us all a packet of proper Stotties last time and me and DH had the genius idea of using them to make giant fry up butties (sausage, bacon, eggs and mushrooms) Grin In hindsight that wasn't a great idea, neither of us managed to finish them Blush Despite being absolute pigs. There was just too much bread.

So lovely folk from Co Durham, what do you do with your Stotties?

Great for all sandwiches and lovely for dipping in soup. Cheese savoury goes really well as a filling. May pick some up on Saturday.

The only thing there is to do with a stottie - ham and pease pudding, anything else is just not right!
Thick layer of proper butter, thick slice of hand cut ham and lashings of pease pudding.

Oh God, I want one now🤣

As a Geordie kid I had stottie cake with real butter and lemon curd inside!

MrsCharlesBrandon · 26/06/2019 11:02

My husband does exactly what you did OP!

Cheese and onion toasties (only a quarter for me), dip in soup, cheese salad, the possibilities are endless!

My family are from Newcastle...

Must admit as nice as a stottie are fadges were nicer but I never see those for sale anymore.

Toooldtobearsed2 · 26/06/2019 13:33

@Disfordarkchocolate there is a farm shop sells them somewhere around here.

Aagghh cant remember the name, will be back when i remember 🤔

Waiting with baited breath @Toooldtobearsed2

Our household's favourites from the stottie shop on the Haymarket were the ones filled with cheese & coleslaw, corned beef & onion, and salami salad. Cut into quarters. Quarter pp.

You can also make stottie-based pizzas.

Toooldtobearsed2 · 26/06/2019 13:41

It is one of two. Either or been to both in the past couple of months, but cannot remember which one has them😏

Disfordarkchocolate · 26/06/2019 13:43

Thanks, @Toooldtobearsed2 I go near both every month or two so I'll make sure I stop next time.

Has to be cheese on toasted stottie with loads of Worcester sauce. Or egg sarnie or ham and pease pud. I’m on my way back to NCL at this moment, I’m gonna have to stock up

MsSquiz · 26/06/2019 13:46

We always quarter the full size stotties and just use them as normal bread buns.

Most popular in our house is a hot roast beef stottie with gravy and roasties.
DH loves a saveloy dip with his stottie, or a full English breakfast sandwich.

When I was younger my DM would use half a stottie as a pizza base for homemade pizzas

AintNobodyHereButUsChickens · 26/06/2019 17:17

Ooh I like the pizza idea!

When I was a kid, nice fresh stottie from Jackie White's market then loads of ham and pease pudding

IncyWincyGrownUp · 26/06/2019 19:03

Ham, cheese and mustard.

And a friend to help you eat it! :o

Leftover roast dinner goes nice in a stottie

KenDoddsDadsDog · 26/06/2019 19:40

Ham and pease pudding also from Jackie White’s market
Bacon sandwiches
Toasted with butter
Love them !

Redwinestillfine · 26/06/2019 19:46

Fill them! The roast dinner stottie is my fave!

josette · 26/06/2019 19:53

When I was in Durham, I loved a cheese savoury stottie from the bread shops. No idea what is was... grated yellow and red cheese, grated onion and either mayonnaise or salad cream. They are huge, and one could do you for lunch and tea!

I had coffee at Broom house last week, I'll check next time I go up that way and let you know.

WrongKindOfFace · 26/06/2019 19:58

I haven’t had one for a very long time, but yes to ham and pease pudding.

Luaa · 26/06/2019 20:00

You don't eat the whole thing at once surely? I've only ever had a quarter at a time.
