H is for Herby Potatoes.


Life is very hectic at the moment what with my wedding commissions and Jon's business. Both entirely different but enjoyable in their own ways.
I am developing a new product at the moment and received a fantastic response at a recent Wedding Fayre. Responses are all very well, but it is the follow up which is a true test of success, so to receive a deposit for a definite booking was a good measure of future commissions.
With Jon's business it is all about bureaucracy and I am working on policy statements regarding Health & Safety, Quality Assurance etc. Sounds boring but it does bring back memories of the policy statements I was involved with in Education so I am finding it quite enjoyable in a strange way!

Keen to keep up with my cookery challenge, ie to develop or try a new recipe each week today I am sharing my Herby Potato Recipe, a recipe of my very own, inspired by a jar of mustard!

We were with one of Jon's customer's last week and for lunch I had warm potatoes together with a lovely fillet steak kebab. The customer runs a farm shop and had a variety of interesting jars on sale, amongst them I saw a jar of Horseradish Wholegrain Mustard. On our return home I cooked some roughly cut potatoes and stirred in a couple of tablespoons of the mustard together with 2 beaten eggs. I then transferred the mixture to a greased oven dish and cooked for 15 minutes. Absolutely awesome! We have to return to the shop in the not too distant future so I will be developing the recipe when I try out different mustard and other bits and bobs!

  2. I've cooked potatoes with eggs but never with mustard, over fire and not baked. Perhaps I should give this recipe a try.
