This dish could be served as a brunch dish, or for any light meal or snack. When I came across this recipe tonight in a recipe book - The Midweek Cookbook: 200 Ways with Potatoes - I really hadn't looked at since the seventies, the name of this dish intrigued me. A web search produced nothing of relevance, just lots of references to dog breeding kennels! So unfortunately I know nothing of the origins of recipe's name. I'm posting a C21st adaptation here so that I remember to make it some time! It's actually rather similar to what I've always referred to as a chip omelette, although I usually make that with diced raw potatoes.
