Egg & Bacon Butties from Chagford's Dartmoor Diary

Egg & Bacon Butties from Chagford's Dartmoor Diary


This Special edition of the Dartmoor Diary Blog is devoted to the glories of the Bacon and Egg roll or buttie, and the amazing variation of interpretation of this simple recipe by some of the great cafes and shops around the Moor.

There is no intention to rank the food or to discuss prices, just to celebrate some brilliant cooks who feed us lucky Moorlanders. Every interpretation is special, and the different styles and very high quality of them all is that triggered this blog.

So, starting with our very local Blacks Deli in Chagford.

Specification: Bacon Baguette with 2 Eggs


Where: Blacks Deli, 28 The Square, Chagford, Newton Abbot TQ13 8AB

When: Weekdays: “Early till 10 a.m.”


Website: http://www.blacks-deli.com/


This is our every Monday breakfast and Chris has evolved his recipe for easy eating as well as great taste. There are choices of baguette and Andy the Butcher supplies the ingredients. Eggs are now “flipped” as the original version with unflipped runny yolk caused excitement by squirting out over the eater! Choose 1 or 2 eggs, and discuss Rugby and Cricket with the genuinely expert Chris, while admiring Catherine’s energy and welcome. Best eaten with their fresh coffee, or if they are not too busy, and you ask really nicely, a pot of Catherines excellent tea. Eat outside or in, dependent on weather and how many of you have come to start the day.

The Assistant says……..It's the best start to a week that you could possibly have. There is usually a lovely basket of flowers outside the door and the welcome just can't be beat! We get to walk there and back across the fields and through the woods, enjoying the lovely views and the hills across the valleys. We are known to be outside Blacks by friends and acquaintances and Mondays are when people stop and talk and sometimes, even have a coffee or two. We catch up on news that you would not usually get when living so remotely. It kind of symbolises what Moorland life is like.
