Fantasy Veggie Dinner Guest - MORRISSEY


No-one who was young in the 1980s, could have avoided The Smiths and the influence of Morrissey. 

The man himself combines talent with a serious sense of self-worth and, quite often, a chip on his shoulder. Zelda did consider a chip recipe but instead chose an old Manchester favourite and  jazzed it up a bit to add a bit of glamour when he comes to dinner. 


125g puff pastry (1/3 of a pre-rolled sheet)
2tbsp strawberry or raspberry jam
50g fresh white breadcrumbs
25g butter
25g caster sugar
1 egg, separated

Serves 2

Line a small dish with the pastry.
Spread the jam over the base.
Melt the butter. Combine it with the breadcrumbs and the yolk of the egg.
Place on top of the jam.
Cook at Gas 6/ 200˚C/ 400˚F for 30 minutes. 
Whisk the egg white until it makes firm peaks. Gradually whisk in the caster sugar.
Spread over the tart.
Turn the oven down to as cool as possible.
Cook until the meringue browns.
