Egg-topped courgette fritters

courgette fritters and poached egg
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 10mins
  • Cook: 10mins

Ingredients

  • 3 medium courgettes
  • 5 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
  • 7 medium British Lion eggs
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 90g parmesan, finely grated
  • 1/2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • A generous pinch of chilli flakes, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Rocket and tomato salad to serve

Method

  1. Coarsely grate the courgettes on a box grater and place in a sieve over a bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and leave to stand for ten minutes.
  2. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can from the courgettes, then place them into a large mixing bowl with the spring onions, garlic, three eggs, flour, parmesan, baking powder, chilli flakes and some seasoning. Mix to combine.
  3. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add about two tablespoons of the mixture to the pan for every fritter. Fry for about three minutes each side until golden and crisp. You should get twelve fritters out of the mixture.
  4. While the fritters are cooking, bring a pan of water to just below a simmer. Stir the water to create a whirlpool effect. Crack an egg into a small bowl, and as the ‘whirlpool‘ is dying down, carefully drop the egg into the water. Leave to poach for about three minutes, until the white is set and the yolk is still runny. Then remove with a slotted spoon.
  5. Serve two courgette fritters topped with a poached egg per person. Sprinkle with extra chilli for garnish. Serve with a tomato and rocket salad.

#eggcelent way to start the weekend 
#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfridayPrawns are on the menu tonight !
