Farmhouse Scramble

Yesterday I cooked Farmhouse Scramble for our tea.

I guess it's like a frittata or an omlette.

2lb mixed cooked vegetables (Just a little over 900g)
4 oz grated cheese
3 oz breadcrumbs (fresh)
2 eggs 
Chopped Parsley 

Makes 4 portions.

Instead of lard I used oil.

The recipe asked for 2 eggs, I actually used 4 medium.

The vegetables I used were carrots and swede (diced), broccoli and peas.

Very easy to make, just mix all of the ingredients together.

Melt the lard or oil in a frying pan - I used my large cast iron pan.
When the oil is hot spread the mixture in the pan.

The recipe says to put on the lid and cook for about 20 mins or until brown, this can be done in the pan on the hob or in the oven, I didn't put a lid on and baked in the oven for around 15 mins, and then finished off under the grill just to give it a little browning.

I just served with beans.
It was very nice, my husband said next time could he have a fried egg on top, which I agree it would be nice.

I managed to find some more books at the charity shop at the weekend.

I  really love old cookery books.

This one is a bit battered, this edition is from the 1940's

This one called  Basic Recipes is from the 1950's

Another booklet to go with my collection.

This is my favourite, The Main Cookery book from this edition is from 1935, although the cover has wear, the inside is in lovely condition. I love this book, some really good recipes.

And just a few others not so old.
