…and a poached egg for me.
I suppose this is a bit brunchy for dinner, but in a world where we sleep in a pair of woolly tights, on all fours, with our bum in the air and reject milk but eat dried dog food, anything goes.
Serves 1.5 very generously (2 if you count the dog as a second half person)
A selection of root veg – we used a small carrot, 4 small potatoes and a quarter of a small celeriac
A dessert spoon of flour
A grating of black pepper and nutmeg, a sprinkle of dried or well chopped fresh sage
A large dessert spoon of butter
Peel and chop the veg into pieces – about the size you’d do for roasting – and parboil them for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, put the sausages in the oven or under the grill. Grate the veg (using a food processor means you can do it hot) and combine with the flour, herbs and egg. Get the butter frothy in a hot pan and put small spoonfuls of the veg mixture in – if they’re small it makes them a bit more manageable and less fragile. Push them down a bit with the spatula till they sizzle. Fry till golden on both sides, then poach or fry an egg for yourself to go on top. No reason why a baby can’t eat an egg, but self feeding and runny yolks are an extravagant combination, wet wipes wise.
