Kedgeree. Flakey haddock poached in milk, delicious creamy curried rice and soft boiled eggs. I know what your thinking? This doesn’t sound that slutty. But let me remind you this is a breakfast dish. It’s the kind of weird colonial cuisine that if you described it to an American they would think you where ‘taking the piss’. But to any Brit we are not going to be unnerved by the thought of curry for breakfast, whether it’s last night takeover re heated in the microwave or this decedent pan of slutty goodness. Slut it up to the max - we added fresh peas but I reckon some lardons wouldn’t look out of place.1d
