Spicy ‘Posh’ Baked Eggs and Chips

Spicy ‘Posh’ Egg and Chips

After my Dad passed away, my dear old mum decided to have a de-clutter of the kitchen in our family home. Dad loved a poached egg or two in the morning and had a special pan to cook the eggs in. The pan has special compartments to cook the eggs in over boiling water. My mum likes eggs but decided she could live without this pan. So we inherited it and it’s something we use a lot nowadays.

We also love eggs but we tend to have them for breakfast more than dinner. In recent months I’ve been meaning to change this habit and for us to eat more eggs in the evening. I did make a Posh Egg and Chips a few years ago and I thought about making this for dinner. However, I also fancied spicy food too so I decided to put the two together. I came up with this delicious combination for our dinner.

Spicy ‘Posh’ Egg and Chips

Spicy ‘Posh’ Eggs and Chips was a big hit with my husband and I. My son Ted who is six isn’t a fan of runny eggs. So I made him scrambled egg and chips. Which he really liked. While we enjoyed our spicy eggs and chips. Egg and Chips is, I’d like to think, a classic meal in the UK. It’s a dinner I always remember my Nan cooking. Now I’ve made it posher I think it’s even better than the original. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you! xxx
