This is supposed to be “ugly”…it’s irregular, and puffy and rises all funny and browns unevenly. If it looks like a big loaf of bread gone wrong, you did it!
You can do anything with this, it’s the white paper of english cooking. Serve chili in it, alongside pot roast, at breakfast with sausage in it. Onion gravy with it (1 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp olive oil, some red onions chopped and minced garlic sauteed, 4 sage leaves, a little marsala wine and dijon mustard, salt, pepper MMM!)
The possibilities are endless – have fun!!
