Breakfast Rosti

Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I agree with a capital A!

After waking up, your body needs essential energy to kick start your day. My good friend Hayley deserved this breakfast, fit for a vegetarian queen.

Recipe for two:


1 grated large potato, skin on.
1 grated small apple, skin on.
1cm chunk of ginger grated.
20g butter
2 large eggs
Small can of baked beans

Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Put the grated potato, apple, and ginger in bowl and squeeze the juice out with your hands.
Don't squeeze too much, the mixture should still be damp.

In a small frying pan add half of the butter and let it sizzle.

Then gather half of the potato mixture in a ball, and flatten in the frying pan.

Let this fry on a low heat for 2 minutes each side.

Then add to baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, and pop in oven for 10minutes.

Meanwhile start poaching the eggs and heating up the beans.
Poaching an egg is not difficult and takes practise. In a small pan fill half with water and let it boil, once water is bubbling, crack egg close to the water and just leave it. After two minutes, take out with a slotted spoon.

After both eggs are done, turn oven off and serve up.

The verdict?

Absolutely scrumptious.
