  • 3 large British Lion eggs
  • 450g/1lb potatoes, peeled
  • 210ml/1/2pt milk
  • 15g/1/2oz butter
  • 30ml/2 tbsp plain flour
  • 225g/1/2lb un-dyed smoked cod fillet, skinned
  • 1/2 (40g) bag watercress, roughly chopped
  • 15g/1/2oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Fan180C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Place 2 of the eggs in a small pan and cover with cold water. Bring slowly to the boil, then simmer for 6 mins. Remove from the heat, drain and rinse the eggs in cold running water. Tap the shells all over then peel away the shells. Cut into quarters and leave to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large saucepan, add a pinch of salt and cover with cold water. Cover and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15mins or until tender. Drain and mash the potatoes. Beat the remaining egg and mix into the potatoes with a fork until fluffy.
  3. Place the milk, butter and flour together in a medium pan and slowly bring to the boil, using a balloon whisk to whisk the sauce until it boils and thickens. Cook for 1min. Season to taste.
  4. Cut the cod into large chunks and scatter over the base of a 1.4ltr/21/2pt ovenproof dish with the hard boiled eggs. Scatter over the watercress. Pour the hot sauce over the fish and eggs. Use a spoon and fork to heap the fluffy potatoes on top of the filling, then sprinkle over the cheese. Bake for 25-30mins or until the top is golden. Serve hot.

#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 !
