Ham, Egg & Pork Crackling Chips - Serves 2


The crackling seasons these chips and makes them extra cruncy. They are delicious with a fried egg and a thick slice of ham for a quick dinner. 

Piggin Ingredients:

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 40g BBQ Pork Crackling, crushed to crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 thick slices of ham or leftover gammon
  • piccalilli or ketchup to serve

Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C / 180 degrees C Fan / Gas Mark 6. Cut the potatoes into thick chips (leaving the skin on) and place in a large pan of water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes, until they have tender edges. Drain and steam dry for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile put 3 tablespoons of the oil into a large baking sheet and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Add the chips to the hot oil, then sprinkle over the crackling and turn to coat. Cook for 35-40 minutes. 

When the chips are nearly cooked, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the eggs for a few minutes. Serve the chips with ham and eggs, and piccalilii or ketchup if you like.
