Brunch!

Brunch is a great meal – I don’t go without breakfast when we have brunch on a Sunday.  We are usually up early enough to have something light – fruit and yoghurt – first thing and then something a bit more substantial at around 11.30 – noon which keeps us going until Sunday roast at about 6.30pm.   I don’t call what we eat in the middle of the day on a Sunday lunch because it tends to be based around foods more  breakfast-y than lunch-y.   If you know what I mean….?!

We have, for a while now, been stuck in a bit of an pancake rut so yesterday we decided to try potato cakes – they worked!

Recipe:

450g potatoes

115g plain flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper ( you could, of course, add herbs or spices to these depending on what you were having them with).

Method:

Make mash with the potatoes and when the mash is ready add the flour. olive oil and seasoning.

Mix this in to a dough which you then roll out on a floured surface.   You need the thickness of the dough to be only around 5mm, any thicker and they wont cook in the middle.

Use a scone cutter to cut out your potato cake rounds and then fry them in a little oil until golden brown.  You need to fry them on a low heat so that they are cooked in the middle.

We had ours with some crispy bacon and fried eggs – yum!   They are a bit of a faff to make but worth the effort.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and that the working week has started well for you.

Until tomorrow…
