Herdwick sheep were probably introduced by Norse settlers during the Viking invasions (10th-11th c.). The husbandry of the sheep has been a large factor in shaping the culture & terrain of the Lake District. Beatrix Potter was involved with breeding Herdwicks & bequeathed 15 farms to the National Trust. Per her instructions all continue to graze Herdwick flocks.
We love pasture reared eggs for breakfast, lunch and supper and this satisfying dish also makes a favourite weekend brunch. It comes together in no time at all, leaving you plenty of time to potter around, read the papers, and relax. The fiery rich red sauce with the cool and creamy smashed avocado is a delicious combo.
