Fried bread is sometimes a part of a full British or Scottish breakfast. The bread is fried after the bacon, in the leftover grease. Don't judge.
I started making what I called “Savoury Cake” as finger food for my daughters’ parties. It’s easy to eat, flavoursome, and makes an alternative to sandwiches. It’s also a perfect toddler food recipe (I’ve never met a toddler who isn’t tempted by something that looks like cake)! This recipe shouldn’t be relegated to the ‘kids party food’ category though. When we had leftovers of this savoury bake from the kids’ parties we’d snack on it later, and realised just how versatile (and tasty!) it is. We started eating this for breakfast, as a side dish at lunch, and even as a late-night supper or snack. The ingredients make it similar to the filling of the British classic the quiche, but this is lighter on liquid and with flour added through. This gives it a lovely moist crumb and a slight crust. I love this as a packed lunch option (for myself or for the kids), and as a savoury afternoon treat when I’m feeling peckish. Feel free to mix it up with other vegetable varieties, or by adding ham or bacon.

Smokey pulled pork leftovers, cream cheese, scallions and spices, coated in a crispy crust of pork rinds and then fried to perfection. This recipe uses leftover pulled pork, not fresh. You will need the pork to be cool so it can properly mix and bind with the ingredients, or it will melt the cream cheese and not form a patty. This recipe makes 8 pork cakes, which is just over 1/2 Cup of pork per serving.
These are an adaption of arepas, which are classically made with arepa flour and either served on their own as a kind of flatbread, or split and stuffed with anything from cheese to meat to eggs. In this version, a quick masa dough gets folded around a black bean and cheddar filling, then flattened and pan fried until crisp and golden. You can adapt the recipe to use any filling you want, from leftover pork carnitas to shredded chicken. This is a great do-ahead dish, as the arepas can be assembled completely the day before.
