So, normal service having been resumed (x-ed fingers), and Remembrance duties discharged - here's yesterday's brunch . . well, half of it, anyway:

Having invested time, effort and a coupla hard earned squids a few weeks back, to obtain an Addis microwaveable degg poacher, I happened on these silicone poaching pods for 50p in a charity shop, and having bleach bathed them, I gave them a run out.

As a precaution (possibly unnecessary) I gave them a good greasing before dropping the deggs into them, then floated the two side by side in a pan of boily H2O and put the lid on for 3.5 minutes.

Then I lifted them out, and let them sit while I faffed about toasting and buttering my sourdough then decorating same with hunny roast ham before evicting the poach deggs from their nests

Bloody excellent!!

Nice. Have you gone all Michelin star or could you not be bothered with proper crockery?

O-doofarkorff.

I was 'kin'ungry, the wife out the door, so I wasn't fussed about the mess, and scoffed one by the stovetop before I remembered to do the CSI thing and snap the crime scene.

You shoulda seen the forensics left by egg #1.

I think I was posting for @Northern_Biff - ISTR he couldn't get on with the posing pouches, found the microwave weapon better.

I think I'm t'other way round.
 
Small but thick gammon steak, egg, fried potato, black pudding and mushrooms.

Not sure we needed a life size picture ^ ^ ^
 
That fry degg should be sat upon the black pudding throne, anointed with salt and pepper, ready to be pierced, spilling it's unctuous yolk into that dark altar, to create the Food of The Gods.

Some baked beans wouldn't go amiss neither :)
Sorry Maestro, as ever your opinion is greatly valued. :sleepy:

I've decided to heed @Provost 's advice and didn't use the enamel plate to rest the meat on.
