1 green chilli, deseeded and chopped

4 Irvine’s Eggs, beaten

1 pinch salt


Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Roll up the tortillas in a sausage shape and then snip them into strips with a pair of scissors straight into the hot oil.

Fry the tortilla strips for a few minutes until crisp and golden, and then remove to a bowl.

Add the chopped tomato and spring onion to the hot oily pan along with the chopped chilli, turning everything for a minute or so with a wooden spoon.

Put the tortilla strips back in the pan, and add the beaten eggs and salt. Using the same spoon, move everything about the pan as you do when scrambling eggs.

Once the eggs start to set, remove the pan from the heat, and continue stirring the eggs until they are done to your liking.

New York Cheesecake

5 large eggs, room temperature
2 cups (one pint) sour cream, room temperature
4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
8 tablespoons (one stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Generously butter the inside of a 10-inch springform pan. Wrap a double layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil tightly around the outside bottom and sides, crimping and pleating the foil to make it conform to the pan. This will help to prevent water seeping into the pan when you put it into the bain-marie. Position the baking rack in the center of the oven; preheat the oven to 300* Fahrenheit.

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sour cream until well blended.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the cream cheese with the butter until smooth and creamy. Add this to the egg-sour cream mixture and beat until smooth.

Add the sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest and beat thoroughly, about 2 minutes.

Pour into the prepared springform pan and place in a roasting pan (or other pan) large enough to prevent the sides from touching.
Place in the oven and carefully pour in enough very hot tap water to reach halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
Bake for 2 hours, 15 minutes, or until the cake is very lightly colored and a knife inserted in the center emerges clean. Remove from the water bath and carefully peel the aluminum foil from around the pan. Let stand at room temperature until completely cool, about 4 hours. Refrigerate, covered, until well chilled. For best flavor and texture, this cheesecake is best chilled overnight.

**My Notes: I can’t stress enough how important it is to let those first 4 ingredients in this recipe come to room temperature. I’ve hurried the cream cheese and have had unsightly lumps of it in my batter.
**I’ve italicized the mixing instructions to emphasize blending the ingredients to achieve the desired texture.
** Have a platter or other large dish that will hold the hot and drippy springform pan after you remove it from the bain-marie. When you remove the bain-marie from the oven, the water is very hot, so please exercise extreme caution.

Before removing the roasting pan, have a plan on where you are going to set it so you are not holding the pan, desperately searching for a clear space to set it down. I find it impossible to remove the cheesecake from the bain-marie while it is in the oven, so I remove the entire set-up from the oven. I make every effort not to burn my wrists or the back of my hands while removing the springform pan; I haven’t been burned yet, but I have soaked the edges of the potholders in the hot water, and it’s amazing how fast that steaming water is wicked up to my tender fingers!


Scotch Eggs


6 Irvine’s Eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
75g plain flour
100g breadcrumbs
450g sausage meat
1 Irvine’s Egg
1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 200°C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the plain flour in a shallow bowl or plate and season with some salt and pepper. Break the uncooked Irvine’s Egg into a second bowl and beat lightly. Place the breadcrumbs in a third bowl or plate and line up all the bowls in a row.
Add the sausage meat into a bowl and mix through the fresh thyme and parsley until evenly combined. Dust your hands with the flour, scoop out a large ball of sausage meat and flatten it into an oval shape in your hand.
Wrap the sausage meat around the Irvine’s Egg, pinching it together at the seam, then smooth the meat around the egg, making sure there are no gaps where the egg is peeking through. Dredge the sausage-covered egg in the flour, tapping off any excess. Set aside the wrapped and floured egg on the lined baking sheet and repeat this process with the remaining eggs.
Once all the eggs have their sausage blanket and their dusting of flour, dip each one in the beaten egg, then roll it in the breadcrumbs. Place the finished egg on the lined baking sheet, then repeat with the remaining eggs.
Place the eggs in the oven and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are crispy and the sausage is cooked through.
