Chicken Pate

Ingredients: 3 chicken breasts, boneless 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped

chocolate porridge

Chocolate porridge

Blend half the oats and the dates in a food processor until you have a thick paste, adding a splash of milk to help the blades go round if necessary. Scrape the mixture into a saucepan and add the rest of the oats, 500ml milk, the cacao and a pinch of salt. Stir well and set over a low-medium heat.  Stir the porridge every now and then for the next 5-10 mins, until it’s thick and creamy – add a splash more milk if you prefer a looser consistency. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup, if you like.

Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Lay the pancetta on a baking sheet and stack another baking sheet on top. Cook in the oven for 15 mins until crisp, then remove and drain on kitchen paper. To make the tomato fondue, put the tomatoes in boiling water, in batches, for 8 seconds, then quickly transfer to a bowl of ice-cold water. Peel off the skins, then quarter and deseed. Cut a couple of the tomatoes into 0.5cm squares and reserve for later. Put the oil in a medium-sized pan. Add the shallots, garlic and thyme, and cook for 5 mins until soft. Add the bay leaves and tomato purée, and cook for a few mins more. Finally, add the tomatoes and cook everything for 15 mins until slightly dry. Discard the bay leaves, then place the tomato mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Sieve, season and keep warm. You can make and chill this up to two days ahead. Add the butter to a frying pan and heat until foaming. Fry the bread until golden all over, remove and drain on kitchen paper. Add the mushrooms to the same pan and fry for 2 mins until softened, adding an extra knob of butter if the pan is too dry. Carefully place the egg yolks, one at a time, into a pan of simmering water. Cook for 1 min, then very carefully lift out and drain on kitchen paper. To plate up, spoon the tomato fondue onto each of 6 plates and scatter with the mushrooms. Carefully top each with an egg yolk, then sprinkle with the croutons and reserved tomatoes. Finish with a slice of pancetta and season.

The great breakfast burger

Put the onion, ketchup and oyster sauce in a food processor, then blend to a coarse paste, scraping down the sides of the processor if you need to. Put the sausagemeat into a mixing bowl, beat in the onion mix, egg yolk and 25ml water (and I mean really beat; if you have a tabletop mixer, do it in that), then add the parsley. Separate the mix into 8, roll into large balls, then flatten into patties. Chill on a plate for 1 hr. To cook the burgers, heat a griddle or large frying pan without adding any extra fat. Fry for 3 mins on one side until golden, turn down the heat for 5 mins, then flip and repeat on the other side. While the burgers cook, fry the bacon and, if you are game, some eggs as well. Heat the grill, then lightly toast the insides of the ciabatta buns. Place the cooked burgers on a baking sheet, put a slice of cheese on each, then pop under the grill to melt. Sit the burgers on their buns, then place the bacon on top. If you feel like them, slide fried eggs on top of the bacon. Serve with a napkin.
