Cauliflower scramble

Method

  • Heat a little oil with a good knob of butter in a large heavy-bottomed pan and cook the bacon until crispy (not dried out), regularly stirring. Then strain the bacon, reserving the liquid.
  • Return the strained liquid to the pan with the cauliflower, potatoes, a little water and quite a bit of seasonings. Mix well and cook until the vegies are almost tender and the water has evaporated.
  • Lightly beat the eggs with the cream and seasonings in a bowl. Then add to the pan and lightly scramble, pulling the curds in from the sides with a wooden spoon as they form. DON’T OVER COOK! Remove the pan from the heat, add the bacon with 2 tbsp chopped chives and gently mix until lightly set.
  • Spray the bread with oil and grill (or toast – without the oil, of course).
  • Place a piece of bread on individual plates, spoon the scrambled eggs on top of each piece, sprinkle with the remaining chives and serve with slow roasted mushrooms and/or tomatoes alongside.
