These scones are such a joy to rustle up and serve on a lazy weekend for brunch. They go down a treat.
- FOR THE SCONES :
- Potatoes - 4-5 large
- Chives - 4-5 tbsp
- Flour - 100 gm
- Butter - 2 tbsp
- Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
- Cheese - 3 tbsp grated (optional)
- Salt - to taste
- FOR THE SCRAMBLED EGGS :
- Eggs - 5 large
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Smoked Salmon
Put potatoes in boiling salted water for 7-8 minutes. Drain, cool and peel. If in a healthy mood, you may want to leave the skins on, but thats purely optional. In a large bowl, mash the potatoes.
Chop the chives and add to the potatoes.
Add the butter, flour , baking powder and salt. If you are in a mood for cheese.. go on, add it! Adjust the salt accordingly.
Make small flat balls and shallow fry on a hot pan in olive oil, till golden on both sides.
When just about to serve, beat eggs, add the salt and pepper. Scramble the eggs on a hot pan in olive oil. DO NOT overcook.
Plate the scones. Balance the scrambled eggs on top of the scones.
And on that already shaky mountain top, fold the smoked salmon . If you are not yet satisfied, garnish with a sprig of parsley.
The kids will love you for this…. so much !
