Old family recipe, passed down by my Grandmother. Universally loved for it’s speed, practicality and versatility. A meal on its own or a substitute when everything else is too much trouble.
Perfect for pre-breakfast (before that late start Christmas breakfast), also as an evening meal after a large lunch when you’re utterly amazed to find yourself hungry again.
