Steve Croot enjoys Croots Breakfast Pie
Croots Farm Shop in Derbyshire is celebrating Farmhouse Breakfast Week this month (January) with the launch of a new Breakfast Pie featuring bacon, egg, sausage, beans, mushroom and topped with sliced potatoes.
The pastry-based pie, which has been created and cooked by the team at Croots, will go on sale for the first time during Farmhouse Breakfast Week – the annual campaign by the HGCA to raise awareness of the importance of eating a healthy breakfast.
Running from January 23rd to 29th, Farmhouse Breakfast Week also aims to demonstrate the variety of breakfast ingredients on offer in the UK.
“To celebrate this year’s Farmhouse Breakfast Week we’ve decided to put as many ingredients from a traditional English breakfast as possible into a pie and we’ve cooked up a Croots Breakfast Pie,” said Steve Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop at Farnah House Farm, Wirksworth Road, near Duffield.
“Last year we unveiled a Croots breakfast banger to mark the occasion, but this year we’ve gone one step further and designed a special pie which is the complete cooked breakfast. It’s absolutely delicious.”
The farm shop has become renowned for its sausages and cooked meat products, as well as being a supporter of local producers and suppliers.
“This is the 12th annual Farmhouse Breakfast Week, and it’s something we have supported every year since we launched Croots in 2008,” said Steve. “It’s very important to start the day properly, yet one in four people skip breakfast. There are so many options for a quick and healthy breakfast, and Farmhouse Breakfast Week aims to promote that.”
During Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which this year has the theme of Shake up your Wake up, Croots will also be offering deals on a new range of cereals and juices.
Croots Breakfast Pie will be on sale in the shop and the café priced £2.75.
