This Tyneside breakfast special is traditionally cooked in bacon fat and served with eggs and sausages. A kind of potato cake, floodies are said to have originated with canal workers, who cooked them on shovels over a fire. They should be served crisp and golden brown. Taken from The Best of English Food and Cooking. Yum!
