4 eggs

250g black pudding, cut into rings

4 rashers smoked, streaky bacon, finely sliced

1 tbsp butter

Small handful of chives

8 baby potatoes, cooked and sliced into 1 cm discs

Salt and pepper

Frying pan

Large bowl

 

30 mins
Serves 2

This might come as a surprise to some people, but I found this recipe in an eighteenth-century manuscript, spelt ‘amulet’ (maybe it was considered lucky to eat it), and it is extremely good and filling. Recipe from The Pleasures of the Table: Rediscovering Theodora Fitzgibbon.

 

Fry the bacon and black pudding in a pan and transfer to a separate plate when cooked.
Whisk eggs in a large bowl and add in all of the ingredients.
Bring the pan to a medium heat, add in butter and when butter has melted pour in egg mixture.
Cook the bottom until golden, then put under a hot grill to finish the top.
Season to taste and garnish with chopped chives.
Originally the top was finished with a ‘brander’ which was a heated disc of metal, often used in conjunction with the girdle or griddle, for baking.
