    Mash potato/garlic and add 1-2 eggs (depending on size of eggs, mixture needs to be relatively firm)

Having made these tonight to accompany Chicken Mousse Sausages (thanks to Gary Mehigan Good Chef/Bad Chef), I thought they would be really lovely with either a poached or fried egg on top for breakfast/lunch
