I love Donal Skehan. I’m not sure how I first heard about him but I’ve been following him on Twitter for years (how ironic is that referring to Twitter with such longstanding presence?). Plus I like his hair…
He literally IS the food porn king in Ireland as far as I’m concerned and I am always making notes what to try next inspired by his latest Twitter post/Instagram pic.
Enter Egg in a Hole. I saw it on Donal’s Instagram, I tried it. It rocked. Thanks Donal!
Sounds a bit full on doesn’t it?
Hard dough bread and plantain are known for their filling properties. If you are serving realistic portions without going overboard, this can be the perfect breakfast. I decided to be experimental when I realised that I had some plantains in the fridge that needed to be cooked that day. I could have fried them for dinner but I remembered that plaintains can be served any time of the day and if I were in my native St Lucia, I wouldn’t give it a second thought.
You can get plaintains from most Indian fruit and veg shops. Some Off Licences or newsagents will even have plaintains displayed out front amongst other fruit and veg. Go for the yellow ones with brown areas if you want to be able to cook it straight away. It will look like an over ripe banana.
