Kedgeree recipe

It’s said that kedgeree was brought to the UK in Victorian times by returning British colonials who had enjoyed it in India and introduced it here as a breakfast.

Like bubble and squeak, in pre-fridge days, it was a useful way of turning evening leftovers into big breakfasts – we still prefer it as a hearty lunchtime/dinner feast though…
