KEDGEREE – A Rice and Egg Dish with Smoked Haddock.
My Version will change it up and replace the Haddock with Shrimp.
Haddock at 4AM? Ah, not so much.
Kedgeree How To:
Cook the Rice until tender. Add the Shrimp. Stir in Curry Powder. Mix gently together. Cut hard boiled eggs into quarters and scatter over the top. Serve immediately.
1 Cup Parmesan.
3/4 Cup Flour. 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 Egg Yolk.
Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
Grate 3/4 of the cheese into a mixing bowl. Stir in the Flour. Crumble in the butter. Rub to breadcrumb consistency. Stir in the egg yolk and form the dough into a ball.
Dust the worktop and rolling pin with a little flour. Roll the dough out in a rough square to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cut into strips about 1/2 inch wide and 4 inches long and gently transfer to the baking sheet. Finely grate the remaining Parmesan over the tops of the straws.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Ready to Serve in the Flick of a Wand.
SCONES. Rhymes with “Gone”, not “Known”.
Simple and Quick. Don’t Want to Miss the Dress!
Preheat Oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly Dust a Baking Sheet.
4 Cups Flour.
2 Teaspoons baking powder.
2 Tablespoons butter (room temperature)
4 Tablespoons Sugar.
1 Cup Milk.
Make the Dough. Add just enough Milk to bring the dough into a soft, slightly sticky dough which you should handle as little as possible.
Flour your hands and bring the dough into a ball.
With the rolling pin, roll the dough out to a thickness of 1 inch. Using a 2 inch cutter, stamp out a round and place it on the baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until well risen and golden.
Pop out of the Oven and Serve. Delightful with Jelly.

We’ll have Plenty of Hot Coffee. Promise.
