duck breast, eggs baked in potato


Lunch was duck breast, potatoes and carrots. Nothing too remarkable, we get duck breasts easily and I’ve gotten pretty good at cooking them. Mum prefers them a little more cooked so I make them medium. Love that every time I have duck fat available for the next week or so. Half a teaspoon to use in sautéing vegetables make all the difference in flavour.

The best thing about the meal were the eggs baked in potato. I’ve made them before a few years ago and always wanted to do them again. It’s dead simple but just takes a little time. Bake the potatoes until tender, around 1hr. Halve and scoop out the flesh carefully, leaving the skins as a shell. Carefully break an egg into each shell and return to the oven to bake until done, around 10-15 mins. Really tasty and healthy, plus there’s mash leftover for the next meal.
