As lunchtime recipes go this is up there in the ‘aggressively speedy’ category. In fact it was so quick that it took me by surprise, beating me to the punch before I’d got my act together to make a salad dressing. Morcilla is the Spanish variant of black pudding, and this was kindly given to me by Rachel McCormack. Ta Rachel.
Leftover mashed potato
A few thick slices of morcilla or black pudding
Salt, pepper, oil
– Pat the mashed potato into a cake and fry in a little oil until crisp and golden on one side. Turn and add the slices of morcilla.
– Fry the morcilla for 2 minutes on each side and remove, along with the potato cake, to a warm plate.
– Lower the heat and fry the egg for a minute or two. Season with salt and pepper, and serve with the sausage and spudcake, along with a few salad leaves and a piquant dressing.
