One would have to make friends with a farmer, I guess. The rotos are so simple and just amazing-tasting. Our eggs were fried but I suppose you could poach them as well. The potatoes were thinly-sliced and deep-fried, like thick crisps but still slightly tender. I tried to recreate it using Rosscarbery pudding and roasted new potatoes and it was pretty good.

My parents have been taking holidays walking the Camino the last few years and have seen bottles of fresh blood for sale in the small stores so everyone can make their own pudding. The dish with eggs looks delicious, will have to try and recreate – fried or poached eggs?

Great post

Of course, you WERE well read. Now, if it had been green beans I knew about THAT disturbance.

As usual, I loved your blog. You have found your niche and your tastebuds are a pretty good muse.

Should be a great source of iron though.:)

I’m very partial to black pudding. Will store away the morcilla recommendation just in case I find myself in Spain.
