Stotties are a speciality of the North East, a large flat bread bap the size of a dinner plate with a soft texture, soft crust and a small indent in the middle to stop them rising. They can be made at home but it’s a good excuse to go the Newcastle  Grainger market just to buy them in my opinion. If you haven’t got the time or inclinations don’t despair, white bread baps as long as they are fresh will make an adequate substitute.

    I was raised on stotties with cooked ham, pease pudding and of course a pickled onion.I moved to Canada in 1981 and now have a family of my own who also love stottie bread.
    As for the pease pudding yum who needs hummus.
