Ahhhh . . . stovies . . . which traditional Scottish Dish which consists of potatoes, leftover fry from the Sunday roast, and onions stewed in beef drippings and gas on tip of the stove . . . until the potatoes have been proposal and golden . . . and the total thing becomes amazingly deliciously scrummy. Kind of similar to a leftover Sunday lunch meal we guess.
These have been not stovies in which aged tradition . . . we meant there’s no meat in steer . . . and I’ve combined cream to the broth, and spices . . . though it is fundamentally a potato and onion meal . . . baked in a skillet on tip of the stove, until the potatoes have been meltingly proposal and commencement to brownish-red a bit on the bottom . . .
Sprinkled with cheese and afterwards placed in to a hot oven so which the cheese gets all golden and browned in pieces . . . these have been fabulously delicious.
Each swig . . . rich, cheesy, tawny . . . oniony, herby . . . moreishly scrummy.
You get those great crispy brownish-red pieces of potato on the bottom. That oozingly abounding sauce. The melted cheese gilding it all with some-more scrum roughly than a physique can handle. Blue cheese and clever cheddar . . . oh what a pleasing marriage.
Meat free. . . and on Monday too. If we use a unfeeling batch and vegetarian cheeses, it is utterly vegetarian . . . though do not fire me for not being which pedantic. we do my best.
