Jamie Oliver recipe book


500g flour potatoes
100g plan flour
5 eggs
200g smoked salmon
2 smalls knobs of butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
olive oil
1 lemon
salt and pepper


1. Cut the potatoes into 2.5cm chunks and boil for seven minutes. Drain them, allow them to cool, then return them to the empty pan and add the flour. Lightly mash everything together. Slice the chives and add them to the potatoes with a knob of butter and the baking powder, then mash a few more times.

2. Season, then use your hands to bring the mixture together. Pinch off a little, taste and adjust the seasoning, then divide into four balls and dust with flour.

3. Put a large frying pan (roughly 32cm) on a medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the potato balls and pat them down so they're 2cm thick. Cook for ten minutes, turning them every few minutes until golden on both sides.

4. Meanwhile, beat the eggs so they are broken and marbled. Season and put aside.

5. When your potato scones are perfectly cooked, divide them between your plates, then take the pan off the heat and add a knob of butter. Once bubbling, pour in the eggs and put back on a low heat. Use a rubber spatula to continually sweep up the cooked layer of egg from the bottom of the pan, so the uncooked egg can get down there and set.

6. Remove the egg when it's three quarters done. It will carry on cooking and by the time you mix it around one more time and serve.

7. Pop a piece of smoked salmon on top and add a pinch of watercress.

8. Drizzle over a little extra virgin olive oil and serve with wedges of lemon for squeezing over.
