3. Roll and sausage
Nobody best expresses the joy of a roll and sausage like Billy Connolly who said: “Go to Glasgow at least once in your life and have a roll and square sliced sausage and a cup of tea. When you feel the tea coursing over your spice-singed tongue, you’ll know what I mean when I say: It’s good to be alive.”
