I LOVE this leftover lunch! So much so, that I thought I'd share it, even though many of you may already know about it! Basically we make this for lunch the day after we have had mashed potatoes, vegtables and some meat. Usually for our family, this would consist of the following:
Boiled Bacon (chopped) *note - I believe in the U.S, corned beef is used instead of boiled bacon*
1 Onion or Leek (sauteed/braised in butter)
1-2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
Ground White Pepper
A good splodge of Brown Sauce!
Firstly I would melt a knob of butter, in a large frying pan and then saute the chopped onions till soft. Then I would add the mashed potato, cabbage and boiled bacon and heat gently until everything is hot. Next pour in your beaten eggs and stir through until all the eggs are cooked. Add white pepper to taste *note - black pepper doesn't taste as good as white in this recipe* and brown sauce. Ensure thoroughly hot. Serve out onto a thick slice of homemade bread with an extra squirt of brown sauce!
This lunch is so TASTY, that you'll find yourself making extra mashed potatoes, just to make sure there is enough for this lunch the next day! Enjoy! :)
