a hearty brunch

After a pretty hectic week of work with a new tutor group to be responsible for and meeting approx. 150 new faces (and subsequently forgetting their names) in the space of five days, I'm ready to chill. After the much-needed lie in my first thought is coffee! brunch. And yes, it is invariably classified as brunch as it rarely comes before 11am. 

Last weekend I saw one of my twitter favourites Delicious Magazine tweet the perfect brunch recipe. Colcannon cakes with pancetta. Rustic, hearty and full of flavour - perfect.

You can see their recipe here.

I made a few small tweaks; I didn't add stilton as I'm not a great fan of blue cheese and I'm trying to watch the lbs. I also left out the double cream, and cooked in Fry Light rather than butter. They definitely took me a little longer than 4 minutes on each side to crisp up, so don't worry about leaving on for longer. I also used a mixture of streaky and back bacon rather than pancetta as that's what we had in the fridge. Rich also had a fried egg on his which was a delish addition. 

A squirt of red and brown sauce and you're good to go!

  1. That actually looks delicious. I'm very interested in joining Slimming World, it's helped a lot of my friends lose a few lbs, and this looks amazing. I absolutely adore crispy bacon and always cut the fat off regardless, something about the fat being chewy makes my stomach turn!
