I think that this light snack recipe from The Lubborn Creamery would make an excellent breakfast, though it's probably a little optimistic to expect it to stretch to 4 people!

  1. Mix the eggs and flour together in a bowl to form a thick batter. Stir in the chives and plenty of seasoning.
  2. Squeeze the excess liquid out of the grated potatoes and onion then spread them out on a clean tea-towel and pat dry.
  3. Stir into the batter, mixing well, then add the Capricorn Somerset Goats cheese.
  4. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and add 6 tablespoons of batter, pressing down each one to flatten it out. Cook for 2 ½-3 mins each side until golden.
  5. Keep warm while you cook the remaining batter, adding extra oil as needed.

Serving suggestions

Serve with crispy bacon and grilled tomatoes.
