Why we loved it:

This recipe has been in Oscar’s family for generations. We love that it’s been passed down, but Oscar still knows the story of where it comes from.
Also, haddock contains minerals that are really good for your bones and teeth. – What a brilliant meal all round!

Our version of Oscar’s recipe is a bit different to the original. We haven’t put eggs or bacon in ours, but there’s no reason why you can’t. Tailoring things to your own taste is what making your own Family Favourites is all about!
