Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix together the crème fraîche and Dijon mustard, and set aside. Toss the salsify in the lemon juice to stop them discolouring.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the salsify for 2-3 mins, then add the butter. Turn the heat down and cook gently for 10-12 mins, or until the salsify is soft and golden. Keep the salsify warm while you poach the eggs. 

  • STEP 3

    Top the crumpets with a generous pinch of the grated mature cheddar and grill until melted and bubbling. Sprinkle the salsify with a pinch of grated nutmeg and season.

  • STEP 4

    Pile the salsify over the crumpets, then top with a poached egg each and the mustardy crème fraîche. Serve with a few chopped chives, some black pepper and a drizzle of butter from the pan.
