Brendan O'Carroll's Hot Milk and Pepper was a weekly Irishmarker quiz show broadcast on Radio Telefís Éireannmarker (RTÉ). It was hosted by the comedian Brendan O'Carroll, famed for inviting a number of striking Services, Industrial, Professional & Technical Union (SIPTU) baggage handlers in a Ryanair dispute to the shoot of his film, The Sparrow Trap set at Ireland's National Stadiummarker one weekend. It began airing in 1996, with twenty-eight episodes produced in the first series. It was directed and produced by Gerald Heffernan of Frontier Films and was commissioned as a replacement for the Sunday night slot previously occupied by the quiz Where in the World.

Brendan O'Carroll's professional partner Gerry Browne also featured on the show. Browne became known for alleging that he was beaten up by Britishmarker police during the show's run after being arrested for questioning the filling in of an emigration card. The incident was raised in Dáil Éireann (the Irish parliament) and an investigation was launched by the British police. Browne, from Dublin and aged 38 at the time of the incident, claimed to have been attacked by three police officers whereupon he was kicked and punched in various components of his anatomy including his head, his back, his neck and his groin for a period of fifteen minutes. He said afterwards that he thought he was going to die, alleging that the police had launched their assault on him out of xenophobia brought on because of his Irish nationality (this was at a time when the Irish Republican Army or IRA were a feared organisation within British society). The show was named after a cure for constipation.
