I only got up about 2 hours ago and I’m sitting here on the laptop at 1pm in my pj’s.. well it is a Sunday and a morning to lounge around is allowed surely?
Accompanied with his best scrambled egg (minus the smoked salmon as I don’t have any in my fridge) but adding on my touch of sautéed chestnut mushrooms in replacement.Since I’m on the subject of Smoked Salmon, yesterday at the Real Food Festival in London, you must try it from Shoreditch Smoke, who also do smoked prawns! Delicious.
I wanted to get my hands on Jamie’s latest book for a while now and having watched him on Friday at Taste of Christmas in Excel, London in awe I finally got it. Skimming through and having followed the programme religiously his recipes are from all corners of the UK, inspired by different cultures and delving into creating and adapting recipes from these.
This dish took about 20-30 minutes to get it finished and in my mouth.. Soft, tender chives potato cakes, crispy on the outside, warm and creamy on the inside, covered in silky, scrambled egg (not made with milk) and using Jamie’s cooking technique of taking the pan off the heat while cooking the egg, continued to gently heat it.
It resulted in mounds of ever flowing egg which were very soft and gelatinous to eat.I sautéed the mushrooms in some butter and some macadamia nut oil, to add some extra nuttiness to the flavour.
Definitely a recipe I would try again at home! It makes a change eating potato scones to having toast for breakfast. Jamie has done it again, a lovely Scottish inspired dish to get you ready for the day.
