A man after my own heart :)
Although putting it on a sandwich is maybe a LITTLE far…
My god! topsy-turvy world! o_O
Nah, american biscuits aren't quite scones. Unless you like to eat scones with beef roasts and gravy :) Biscuits are very bland and dry, mostly flour and water. I think they were invented originally to slop up the extra fat/gravy on a plate or something… that's about all they're good for (I don't like them much.) Although, the type of scone you'd use to top a casserole might be close. I don't think there's quite a British equivalent to american biscuits, just like there isn't an American equivalent to yorkshire puddings.
Scones for tea on the other hand are delicious, the kind with fruits and such in :) Especially warm, I don't even need butter :)
They don't have iced tea in England, that would be anathema to all they believe.
A lot of times, people in England call dessert ‘pudding’ even though whatever they're eating wouldn't be pudding… or what americans would consider pudding anyway. British pudding I'm told is based on suet, which sounds like something icky that pigs eat :)
OK back to cheese related things!
Cheddar in England is usually white, if it's yellow it's called dyed cheddar :lol:
“American Cheese” is just called “cheese” here, haha. Sometimes ‘slice cheese’ if they're feeling generous.
Dutch masadam is the best sandwich cheese ever
