Eggs, fried in goose fat, flambéd in chilli vodka. Guaranteed to seal the deal with a hungover, newly minted beloved. First, you will impress them with your pyrotechnic skills, then you deliver the grease hit they are craving. If you don’t burn their eyebrows off first that is. Probably worth checking that they are not more of a french toast type too.

Flambéing is not for everyone, and I couldn’t take a photo while I was doing it as I needed both hands. Just google how to flambé, there are plenty of how-tos out there.  Take a great deal of care, and always use a lid with a pan: hold the lid in one hand and the handle of the pan in the other, just put the lid on and the fire will disappear.

I think the trouble is worth it: the chilli vodka leaves a subtle heat and flavour to the eggs that will have you wanting this again.

  • 2 organic eggs
  • 50 ml chilli vodka (infuse a bottle of plain vodka with 4-5 dried red chillis)
  • 1 tablespoon goose fat

Heat the goose fat until quite hot, crack the eggs in, reduce the heat and cover. When they are cooked to your liking, pour over the chilli and flambé according to whatever instructions you are following.

Serve with tea and sourdough toast.

    Oh man, if the goose fat don’t getcha the vodka will. No smart-alecky little heart-tick is going to find its way to this dish. I once made chilli sherry using habanero chilies. Wouch.

      Too right Susan. This is not one for the faint-hearted. The sissies can go and eat my toasted muesli if they want a Heart Foundation approved breakfast 🙂 Wow – that is some seriously hot sherry. What did you use it for?
