Barbecue Brunch Recipe

Serves: 4   

Ingredients

350g self raising flour
80g butter, diced in 1cm cubes
200g extra mature cheddar, grated
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
250ml milk
2 large eggs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil to griddle
4 large Portobello mushrooms
50g butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 clove garlic, crushed
A few sprigs fresh thyme
4 large eggs
12 rashers smoked streaky bacon
A splash of olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Step 1
Add the flour and butter to a mixing and bowl and rub between fingers and thumbs. Stir through the grated cheese, smoked paprika, oregano and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper.
Step 2
Pour the milk into a jug, add the eggs and beat together with a fork.
Step 3
Fire up all burners on the barbecue to a medium heat and set a plancha (or heavy based frying pan) on the grates at one end. Leave to heat up for 10 minutes.
Step 4
Pour the milk and eggs into the flour and cheese mixture, stirring well to combine to a thick batter. Drizzle a little oil on the plancha and brush around. Use two tablespoons to place big dollops of scone mix onto the plancha, allowing room in-between and cook for a few minutes on either side until golden and slightly puffed up. Line them up on the warming rack whilst you continue cooking in batches.
Step 5
Lay the mushrooms stem side down directly on the grill and cook for about 8-10 minutes. Turn over and put a piece of butter in the centre, top with a little crushed garlic and a few thyme leaves. Season well with salt and pepper and allow to grill until tender; the butter, garlic and herbs will melt into the mushroom.
Step 6
When all the scones are cooked, add a little more oil to the plancha and crack on the eggs, frying for a few minutes until they are cooked to your liking. Meanwhile, grill the slices of bacon directly on the grates until crisp.
Step 7
To serve, place a couple of scones on a plate, along with a mushroom, an egg and some bacon.
