Another quick Soda Bread post for Farmhouse Breakfast Week : with Mackerel & Horseradish

Now, I know I've already blogged about having Mackerel & Horseradish on toast for breakfast once.  However, this incarnation of same could definitely bear passing on as it was pretty darned good, plus the fact that it's still Farmhouse Breakfast Week - and it definitely qualifies.

I do agree, that having an oily fish like Mackerel for breakfast isn't everyone's idea of worth getting out of bed for.  For those of you who enjoy a good Kipper - or are buckling down to getting some more Omega 3 into your system - why not give it a go.

Mind you - it just occurs to me - that this could be used as a light lunch or a light supper!  Although I wouldn't be eating Mackerel just before bed, not if I was expecting company therein.  If you know what I mean.  ~taps side of nose, knowingly~  Say no more.


So, getting back to business (phnarrr! .. oh, stop it!), having made that lovely loaf of soda bread, needless to say, it was being used for every occasion that toast would have been.  Hence, when I was contemplating breakfast and pondered on the fact that I was a bit behind in my quota of Mackerel, the idea of putting some on gorgeous soda bread was too good an opportunity to miss.



So, here's what you do.  It's not difficult and anyone should be able to achieve the same results, given the same ingredients :


1.  Take a slice of soda bread.  Try not to slather it with butter and strawberry jam and then eat it.  If you've managed to avoid that pitfall (or if you're still hungry), place your slice in a toaster until toasted to how you like it, or toast it under the grill.


2.  Once toasted, butter lightly.  No, LIGHTLY, I said!  *sigh*


3.  Quickly grab a jar of Creamed Horseradish Sauce, and smooth on a layer.  How much you use, is up to how much you like the stuff.


4.  Next, take a tin of Mackerel fillets in tomato sauce (or plain ones, if you don't like the tomato sauce version).  Open it carefully - you don't want to lose a fingertip, not right at the moment.  Using a fork, break up the fillets gently whilst in the tin and fork out on top of the horseradish layer, until you've covered the slice evenly.


5.  If you've any tomato sauce left in the can, you can feed that to the dog.  They'll thank you for it.


6.  Take some freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle over.


7.  If you want to impress your friends, add a couple of Basil leaves.


8.  Sit somewhere comfy and eat.  It's yours. All yours.  Yum.
