Epic Rosti Breakfast Muffins with Cheeky Chutney!
The best breakfast muffin you'll ever have
For the chutney:
  • small drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 14oz (400g) can chopped tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar (substitute other vinegars for a new flavour)
  • 1 clove garlic, flattened
  • pinch of allspice (optional)
For two sandwiches:
  • 1 potato
  • oil
  • 2 english muffins
  • 4 rashers bacon
  • 2 eggs
  1. Place the olive oil and onion into a deep sided saucepan over a medium-high flame. Add a pinch of salt, stir to break up the onions, and then place the lid on to sweat for about 2 minutes, just until the onion is soft and almost translucent.
  2. Add the remaining chutney ingredients to the pan, and leave with the lid off to reduce down to your desired consistency. For a chunky-chutney texture, mine usually takes 15-20 minutes over a high heat. When the chutney is ready, it can be stored in the fridge for 3 days, longer if kept in a sterile jar.
  3. To make the rostis, stab the potato a few times, and then place in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave carefully, and then grate the potato on the wide holes of a grater, while still hot. This process activates the starch in the potato, making it hold together better in the pan.
  4. Heat a thin layer of oil in a non-stick frying pan, and form the grated potato into two piles, placing each pile carefully into the pan. Press down on the piles of grated potato, to make two flat rostis. Cook until golden brown on each side (about 1-2 minutes per side).
  5. When the rostis are cooked, set them onto a cake rack to drain and keep crisp, while you cook the bacon and eggs in the same pan to your desired level of crispiness and runniness.
  6. Lightly toast the english muffins.
  7. To assemble, slather the muffins with chutney, layer on the rostis, bacon and eggs, then quickly devour them! Or wrap them up and take them on the road...
