Sweetcorn fritters, poached duck egg, bacon and paprika hollandaise

Enjoy a weekend brunch courtesy of Nick Orr, head chef at The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh…

Ingredients for the Fritters

  • 90g flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 500g sweetcorn kernels
  • 6 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 20g chopped coriander
  • 10g diced green chilli
  • Butter for frying

Method for the Fritters

  • Mix all the fritters ingredients together, form into six patties.
  • Pan fry until golden brown on both sides.

Other Ingredients

  • 6 duck eggs
  • 6 rashers of pancetta or smoked streaky bacon

Method

  • Grill the pancetta or smoked streaky bacon until crispy and set aside.
  • Crack each duck egg in boiling water, adding 2tbsp of distilled vinegar and lightly poach for 7 minutes.

Ingredients for the Hollandaise

  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 2 large free-range egg yolks
  • 1 dessert spoon white wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1tsp paprika
  • Salt & pepper

Method for the Hollandaise

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
  • In another pan have some ready boiled water, remove this from the stove and place a bowl large enough to sit on top of it.
  • Place the egg yolks, vinegar and lemon juice in the bowl and start whisking. Gently start pouring the melted buttered in while still whisking. This should cause the yolks to thicken.
  • Add 1 tsp of paprika, salt and pepper.

To Serve

  • Place the fritter in the centre of the plate, place the warm bacon on top, and the warm soft duck egg on top of this. Finish with the hollandaise sauce.
