Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Would you give this a go? Or even try making it?

I was thinking bridge rolls would be cricket bread

Don’t fancy it, but mainly because I don’t like “bits”

I'd be perfectly willing to give it a go :)

Nope. Not sure whether I would if not vegetarian. Possibly. Possibly not.

I'm not against eating insects, and expect they will become part of the mainstream diet in the future, but I'm not sure adding them to bread is the best use, except for the novelty value.

My immediate reaction was did it make a noise like crickets when crunched.

Firstly, Scotland and Wales are part of the UK.
Secondly, I doubt if anyone over here eats toads.
Thirdly, I imagine the article was intended to alert us to new sources of nutrition - not to toughen us up to eating more of what we already eat.

As for cricket bread - I'd give it a go any time. No problem.

toad in the hole doesn't contain real toads - unless you are desperate, starving and have a surfeit of toads - or into potion making.

hot dogs aren't (usually) made with dog.
bunny chow isn't made with bunnies - or a breed of dog.
hamburgers don't contain (hopefully) anyone from hamburg.
linda McCartney would have had to have been ginormous if they're still making sausages from her.
devils on horseback are neither demonic or equine.
chickens don't play the drums.
and spotted dick - well, you get the picture!

I'm very dim-witted today. I couldn't work out where the idea of eating toads came from! :lol:

I vaguely thought some amusingly patterned bread like tiger/giraffe bread... but then I've not eaten more than a slice of bread in three days...

I didn't think insect flour was a particularly new idea. I am all for it as a source of protein and think that diets containing insects are something the western world should adopt.

I do not care for the word 'crunchy' relating to this bread and I think they're silly to use it. It creates a picture in the mind which will be unappealing to many when connected with crickets.

Wahaca used to sell puds made with insect flour iirc.

I don't think they still do.

i had to look up monkey bread - i've never seen it over here.
unfortunately platform 9¾ was not available to me when i was using 9 and10 - although legend (probably myth) says it was to boudica - not that she knew anything about it.
i think shakespeare's witches were more likely to use toads than jk's.

a local shop sold flour with insects in, some years back, but i don't think that was wholly intentional.

I've had batches of home grown dried beans with even more protein than I wanted - they all get a turn in the freezer nowadays.

It's probably been posted here or in another place before, but I've tried (commercially prepared) mealworms and caterpillars as deep fried snacks. They don't taste of much, cheese & onion in one case. Also my home grown veg are unsuitable for vegetarians, I must have eaten a few stowaways over the years. In the w*** years I'd cycle along the towpath in the summer. That added variety and indeed biodiversity to my diet.

I'd presumed most caterpillars would taste of cabbage and broccoli :rolleyes: :twisted:

not intentionally - i've just watched what you allude to. exploiting a feeding response hardly means it's playing the piano.
they don't have drumsticks is what i was implying.

I´ve got salt at home made with ground agave worms, and have eaten crickets/grasshoppers in Mexico. Crunchy, spicy (because they were smothered in chile!). Also ate Lemon termites in Venezuela. Insects are common in Mexico - in the San Juan market you can find ant eggs, scorpions, agave worms, etc. Excellent source of protein.
Then, of course, you´ve got the Bush Tucker bugs on that awful reality show!
