This is one of my favourite breakfasts to cook for our guests. A gourmet breakfast that's simple to prepare, looks beautiful, is very indulgent and not too filling, the perfect way to start your weekend stay at Mulberry Lodge. I use local free range eggs, rocket from the garden, our own potatoes in season, and I like to make make my own basil pesto when we have plenty of basil growing in the garden in summer. The potato rosti baskets can be frozen. If you intend to make a batch and freeze them then only cook for 25 minutes initially and then finish the cooking for about 15 minutes once thawed from the freezer.
Prep Time 20 mins (+10 minutes cooling time)
550g brushed Golden Delight potatoes, peeled, halved
