But his mates weren’t wanting a sausage of it, and replied with vomiting GIFs when he shared his twist on the traditional Easter treat on Twitter. Want tomato sauce with that? The bun-based twist on the good old English breakfast, above The Manchester-based man, who tweets as “ChriswgM41”, shared a snap of his so-called “Easter special”. His pals obviously thought he was bun-kers though, as one responded with a footie-themed GIF showing him the red card. Another also got straight to the meat of the matter, pointing out, “That can’t be nice mate”. A third chum replied with a GIF showing Jim Carrey in a classic Dumb and Dumber scene, retching. For those not content with slathering their hot cross buns with simple butter, BBC Good Food suggests topping them with salted caramel, or a goat’s cheese, fig and rosemary combination – or even ‘unicorn fluff’, using marshmallow and sprinkles. Unsurprisingly, he was shown the red card in this GIF Taking the biscuit with hot cross buns was a vomit-worthy occasion, according to this pal The bun fight continued with Stuart tweeting ‘That can’t be nice mate’ [article-rail-section title=”Most read in UK News” posts_category=”141″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] Hot cross buns are traditionally eaten hot or toasted during Lent
