Remember those healthful recipes I promised you? Yeah, this ain't it. My new position has allowed me to have a weekend day off, so The Man and I get to play a little later on Friday nights than usual. We had a few drinks, watched a Back to the Future marathon and had a really good time. That being said, food would have been a nice addition but I was too tired to cook. So the drinks hit me hard and I was not feeling or looking my very best this morning when I rolled out of bed. To make it up to him, I made a great Irish brunch. Hand made Irish bangers started the plate, a pork sausage that is seasoned with a little mace (the outer papery covering on a nutmeg nut - it tastes completely different from the nutmeg!) and cinnamon along with fennel, sage and black pepper. Into the pan with the frying bangers went thinly sliced potatoes and onions, letting them brown in the fat that the sausages have released. Sea salt and cracked pepper go on the potatoes, which are turned to evenly brown. I tossed about 2 tablespoons of water in the pan and covered it, to make sure the potatoes were cooked all the way. Browned and yummy, the sausage and potatoes are removed from the pan, and scrambled eggs are added with sage derby cheese. A cheddar style cheese with dried sage added for both a lovely green color and a subtle sage flavor, it makes the eggs turn a little green but taste sooooooo good. The final result was a plate full of great hang over curing protein and fat, and paired with a pot of coffee, made a perfect brunch for an afternoon of napping in front of Netflix movies with the windows wide open. Tonight we go to see the local minor hockey team so I need all the rest I can get!
