  1. Roughly grate the marrow, season with salt and allow to stand for about 10 minutes. Place the marrow in a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze out all the moisture, then season to taste with salt and pepper and mix it with the chives, eggs and self-raising flour.

  2. Heat a well-oiled pan. Once hot, dish large spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan and fry over mild heat until crispy on both sides. Serve with poached eggs, sour cream and a lemon wedge. Crispy bacon is an optional extra.

    Tip: Arrange the fried fritters on a baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven for about 10 minutes after they’ve been fried, this will ensure that they’re cooked through.
