Sunday morning breakfast, served with a hot cup of Just Us coffee, delicious!
Farls are an Irish quick bread that comes in many forms, and literally mean “quarters”. These are kind of a cross between a pancake and a touton, in my mind. They are made from a simple dough and cooked in a cast iron pan to give them a lovely crisp on the outside.
This was my first time making these, and full credit goes to Irelandseye.com for the recipe, which makes 8 farls.
While this isn’t my recipe, I also wanted to post this to talk about a new product I tried today, the delicious smoked salmon from Miramichi Smokehouse. This was SO good, some of the best cold-smoked salmon I’ve had. I picked this package up at the newly opened Manasseh Local Food market. I’ve visited there twice this week, picking up some wonderful local products, and it’s really great to have a place to pick up these things much closer to home than I’ve been able to access before. There’s also a deli at the back that I haven’t checked out yet (cash only), but I’ll definitely be back. It’s worth a stop if you’re in the area.
I made the farls yesterday, rewarmed them slightly this morning, and topped them with the smoked salmon, a little sour cream and some red onion. A simple and decadent breakfast !
