{Colcannon Cakes with Poached Eggs and Hollandaise Sauce}

Colcannon Cakes with Poached Eggs and Hollandaise Sauce

This dish would also be delicious served with a slice of baked ham or bacon if you have any leftover. Alternatively, chop up the ham or bacon and add to the colcannon mixture before shaping into patties.
Colcannon Cakes with Poached Eggs and Hollandaise Sauce
Serves 4
Ingredients
450g potatoes, peeled
40g butter
3 scallions, finely chopped
A little salt and freshly ground black pepper
50g Savoy cabbage, shredded
A little plain flour, for dusting
Olive oil, for frying
1 tablesp. white wine vinegar
4 large eggs
For the Hollandaise Sauce
2 teasp. white wine or tarragon vinegar
2 large egg yolks
100g unsalted butter
To Cook
Cook the potatoes in a covered pan of boiling salted water for 15-20 minutes until tender.

Meanwhile, heat a knob of the butter and one tablespoon of water in a heavy-based pan with a lid, over a high heat. When the butter has melted and formed an emulsion, add the scallions and cabbage with a pinch of salt. Cover, shake vigorously and cook over a high heat for 1 minute. Shake the pan again and cook for another minute, then season with pepper.

Drain the potatoes and mash until smooth, then beat in the remaining butter. Fold in the cabbage mixture. Shape the mixture into four balls, dust with flour and press into neat patties.

Heat a thin film of olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan and add the patties, then cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.

To make the poached eggs, bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the vinegar and season with salt and keep at a very gentle simmer. Break the eggs into the water and simmer for 3-4 minutes until just cooked but still soft on the inside. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper, trimming away any ragged edges.

To make the hollandaise sauce, place the vinegar and egg yolks in a food processor with a pinch of salt. Blend until just combined.

Gently heat the butter in a heavy-based pan until melted and just beginning to foam. Turn on the food processor and with the motor running at medium speed; pour in the melted butter in a thin, steady stream through the feeder tube. Continue to blitz for another 5 seconds and pour back into the pan but do not return to the heat. Allow the heat from the pan to finish thickening the sauce as you stir it gently for another minute before serving. Season to taste with salt.

Serving Suggestions
To serve, place a colcannon cake on each warmed plate and place a poached egg on top of each one. Spoon over the hollandaise sauce and add a grinding of black pepper.

UNITS
US

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in smallish chunks
2 cups water
5 1⁄2 cups bread flour or 5 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour (approximately)
4 1⁄2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1⁄4 cup butter

DIRECTIONS

Boil the peeled potatoes in the 2 cups of water in a saucepan until fork tender.
Place 3 cups of flour with yeast, salt, and sugar into a mixing bowl and blend.
After potatoes are tender, reserve liquid, and rice (or mash) the potatoes.
Add riced potatoes back into pan with the 1 3/4 cups (add more water if you don't have the total amount reserved) reserved liquid, and add the butter, heating until butter is just melted.
Pour the butter/potato mixture into the mixing bowl with the flour mixture.
Mix with paddle until blended and then change to dough hook to incorporate more flour by 1/4 cupfulls (adding a total of another 2 cups equalling 8 additions or a bit more until the hook and dough rotate easily together).
Knead with the dough hook for 10 minutes.
(dough will remain slightly sticky).
Place dough into a large greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap allowing to double in volume; about 1 hour.
When fully risen, punch dough down and move to a floured surface.
Slice into 2 equal pieces.
Flatten one piece into a long oval, fold in half lengthwise, pinch that seam, fold under the outer ends, and place into a loaf pan.
With other piece, cut into 3 equal parts, rolling each piece into a long cylindrical piece with your hands.
Braid these 3 pieces together, pinching and tucking in ends and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Cover both loaves with waxed paper (or parchment) and allow to rise for an additional 40 minutes.
During the last 20 minutes of rising time, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
When fully risen, place both loaves in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.
After those 15 minutes, lower heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking for an additional 25-30 minutes until slightly golden and hollow sounding when tapped.

3. Switch oven to 200 C.

4. Get hold of a 22 cm springform pan. Divide the dough into three portions. Put two portions together and knead two or three times, then roll out into a large circle (27 to 28 cm) of 4 mm thickness on a lightly floured surface. Roll another circle of about 18 to 19 cm (I've decided to give metric measurements only; it's high time Americans catch up with the rest of the world), cutting out a bit of pastry to make a couple of leaves. Line the pan with the larger circle of pastry, letting the sides overhang. Trim or press the overhanging edges so that the overhang (about 3 cm) is the same width all around. Spoon the filling into the pie, place the smaller circle of pastry over the chicken filling and fold the overhanging pie pastry of the larger circle over the top. Cut 3 to 4 small slits on the pie top with sharp scissors, decorate with the pastry leaves and brush a beaten egg yolk all over the top.

5. Bake in lower oven for 30 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

{Raisin Scones}



The Raisin Scones are a hit with my boys as they are buttery. I made this with grated Cheddar or Parmesan cheese at home as my boys do not like raisins.

Ingredients

2 cups (500ml) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
4 teaspoons (18ml) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (2ml) salt
1/2 cup (125ml) cold unsalted butter, cubed
1/4 cup (50ml) sultana raisins
1 egg
3/4 cup (175ml) milk

Source: unknown via Minoo
Instructions
 In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
 With a pastry blender, 2 knives or fingertips, cut in cubed butter until it resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Mix in raisins.
 In a glass measuring cup, beat egg with a fork.

 Add enough of the milk to make 1 cup (250ml), stirring to blend.
 Remove 2 tablespoons (25ml) and set aside.

 Pour remaining milk mixture, all at once, into center of flour mixture.
 Stir with a fork just until dough comes together to form a wet dough.
 Using hands, shape into a ball. Transfer to a lightly floured surface; pat out into a scant 3/4-inch (2cm) thickness. Using floured 2-inch (5cm) round cutter, cut out biscuits. Repeat with scraps once.
 We simply make golf ball size ball and lightly flatten it by hand.
 Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

 Brush with reserved milk mixture.

 Baked in a 425F (220C) preheated oven until risen, golden and firm to the touch, about 12 to 14 minutes. At home, I bake them at 375F for 10 to 12 minutes as I find the bottom brown too much.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook, covered until potatoes are near fork-tender, carrots crispy tender, about 15-20 minutes.
Drain and return all ingredients to pot.
Mash the mixture while adding butter and parsley. The potato mixture should be coursly mashed & thick. Add milk for thinning if desired.

Per Google.com, the #1 recipe for Beer Bread in the world! There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it! Be sure to use a sheet pan on the shelf below the pan to catch any excess butter that may drip during cooking.Skip to Next Recipe INGREDIENTS
Nutrition
SERVINGS 6 UNITS Metric
709.77 ml flour (sifted)
14.78 ml baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
4.92 ml salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
59.14 ml sugar
340.19 g can beer
118.29 ml melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)
DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and beer.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Pour melted butter over mixture.
Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.
UPDATED NOTES: This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.
Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off. That compacts the flour and will turn your bread into a "hard biscuit" as some have described. That's because they aren't sifting their flour! If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the "correct" way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product.
I have had many email from you kind folks about using non-alcoholic beverages instead of beer. That is fine to do but I highly recommend adding a packet of Dry Active Yeast or 2 teaspoons of Bread (Machine) Yeast so that you get a proper rise.
The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! ;).
Thank you all for the incredibly nice comments and those of you who left a bad review - learn to sift sift SIFT! You will be amazed at the results you get.

Posting this per a request. I've said it once and I'll say it again there is nothing Irish about Corned Beef and Cabbage, but Shepherd's Pie has always been and still is a staple of traditional Irish cooking. This is a really easy, but tasty recipe that the whole family will enjoy. It's nutritionally sound with all the major food groups represented. The British use lamb in their Shepherd's Pie, but we've always used beef. Do whatever you prefer or even try turkey if you're watching fat content. This sauce is lovely and rich and should go well with any meat. You can use fresh or leftover mashed potato. I usually use 3 tbsp of ketchup instead of the 2tbsp of tomato paste as I like the hint of sweetness, but traditionally the paste would be more sound! You can also make individual pies which are always a hit with the kids. This freezes beautifully too, so make two and save one! Just let it defrost and glaze with the egg and pop into the oven as directed. Enjoy! :)Skip to Next Recipe INGREDIENTS

Boxty is essentially potato cakes using both grated and mashed potatoes. The word comes from the Irish bac-stai, for the traditional cooking of potatoes on the hob (bac) over an open fire (stai.) Margaret Johnson ("The New Irish Table") gives this recipe for a boxty from a restaurant in Killarney, County Kerry, using only grated potatoes. She recommends serving it with bacon and cabbage or Irish stew.Skip to Next Recipe INGREDIENTS

I hope you enjoy this simple recipe for these stuffed spuds; other ideas for what to add include chopped ham or bacon, chopped peppers, fried mushrooms and cream cheese too. These baked potatoes can be made ahead of time, before the final baking, and then can be finished off in hot oven or under the grill just before serving, making them mid-week family friendly! (I used an assortment of cheeses I my recipe, bits and pieces that were cluttering up the fridge, which included Cheddar, Shropshire Blue, Caboc and some Somerset Brie. However, any British cheese would be wonderful in this recipe and you can add your favourites. I would like to bake these spuds with some Single Gloucester or Double Gloucester, Yorkshire Fettle and some Cornish Yarg next time, all favourites of mine. And, if you are serving these cheese stuffed potatoes to the little ones, then familiar hard and crumbly cheeses can be used, such as Red Leicester, Wensleydale, Cheshire or Lancashire)Skip to Next Recipe INGREDIENTS

Pre-heat oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6.
Wash the potatoes and then dry them, before pricking them all over with a fork and baking them in the pre-heated oven for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
Meanwhile, mix all of the grated and mashed cheeses together; add the chopped spring onions, mustard powder and a little salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Set to one side.
When the potatoes are cooked, take them out of the oven and allow them to cool, before cutting them in half and scooping out all of the cooked potato flesh inside – leaving and empty skin.
Mix the warm potato flesh with cheese and add the butter whilst they are still warm, so it melts. Mix well.
Pile the cheesy potato filling into the potato skins, place them on a greased baking sheet and bake for a further 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are hot all the way through and the top is golden brown and bubbling.
Serve immediately with chopped chives and assorted salad leaves or seasonal vegetables.
