Now that I’ve made Jamie Oliver’s “Perfect Chips” recipe, I decided it was time to do the other recipe in his book that involved the same frying process. Knowing how to make the chips made things go quickly and the results were amazing. Greek egg and chips are very versatile and amazing. This recipe also has very limited ingredients, which is always something I like to see.
There are three main ingredients in this dish: potatoes, eggs and onion. If you go back to my post from June 2015 called “Jamie’s Fish and Chips” there is a detailed account of how I made the chips. This recipe was very similar, but instead of blanching the potatoes in oil, I had to parboil them in water. As you can see below, there is nothing complicated or tricky about the recipe. Simple fresh ingredients are always best.
While the potatoes were going, I fried up the onion and then let it sit off the heat until the chips were nice and brown. The last step was just to add the potatoes to the pan on high heat and whisk the egg. I mixed it all up for about a minute and it was done.
To top it all off I just added parsley, salt, and some malt vinegar.
This was a pretty simple dish to make, especially since I used almost the same frying technique before. However, don’t let the limited ingredients fool you, it was full of flavour! Not only that, it’s a very versatile dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can also be a cool side for something, but is very filling on its own. If you don’t have a lot of time, then this is a great recipe. In all it took about an hour to do and it was all very easy!
