Default Potato Pancakes topped with Poached Eggs, Wilted Spinach and Dijonaiise..

With all this talk of poached eggs... I thought I'd post this one - inspired by pretty much the same dish that I had at the Bondi Tratt.

Potato Pancakes topped with Smoked Salmon, Poached Eggs, Wilted Spinach and Dijonaiise.

Get some spuds, parboil them, they shouldn't quite be cooked the whole way thru, then grate them thickly and spread on a plate to cool and dry. Season with salt and pepper (you can also mix herbs through if you like)

Make the dijonaisse by putting 2 eggs in a blender with a dessertspoon each of white wine vinegar and lemon juice. Then turn on the blender and drizzle in hot melted butter till the sauce thickens. Add a couple of spoons dijon mustard till you get the flavour of the mustard through the sauce.

Get a small frypan, melt butter and a little oil in it and put half the potato mixture in, pushing down and forming a round cake, fry till the bottom is done, then put a plate over the frypan, flip it and slide back into the frypan. Put the first one in the oven while you're cooking the second.

While you're cooking the two pancakes, poach the eggs and either steam or boil the spinach until only just wilted.

To assemble, put the Potato pancakes on the plate top with smoked salmon, poached egg, wilted spinach and then drizzle with dijonnaise.

Final Product:
I'm pretty sure I've posted this before, but not entirely sure where.

Looks fantastic. But I don't think the picture is showing it with poached eggs, looks more like smoked salmon to me? But I do agree that poached egg would work just as well .

Whoops, forgot to add the salmon in the recipe... there is an egg in there, it's buried under all the spinach though! I'll change the recipe.

Just made some of your pizza. Was hella nice, as expected. Didn't get basil because, well I felt weird buying dried leaves. That was the only basil I could find. /shrugs

I can't believe I've never tried bocconcini before! It is my new cheese-love.

Nice work, thanks and glad you liked it.

I grow my own basil, it's really easy and they basically look after themselves if you water them every couple of days. You dont even need a patch in the garden just grow them as pot plants even indoors.

Instead of one public holiday, we need seven. Instead of one lamb barbie, we need 21.

So, this Australia Day, make sure you have lamb!

Well, continuing on the lamb theme, here's a herb crusted rack of lamb (served with baby tomatos, shallots and roasted squash), bloody beautiful moite.

Caught possibly THE biggest Mangrove Jack i have ever seen last night. Took me a good 20 minutes to get bastard in. He would have been a good 2.5-3~ kg's, a rare fish to be caught at this size, nothing short of a monster. Caught him in my backyard. Perfect oppurtunity to make one of favourite fish baked dinners. Baked Mangrove Jack Stuffed with Capers, Dill, Thyme, Chilli and Cherry Tomatoes. Fed 9 people.
