This recipe is described by Delia as “a good recipe for a dinner party, as it’s easy to carve and serve.” It would be great for a dinner party. Unfortunately though, I chose to cook it on a Sunday night when we were already running behind our normal schedule and it does take 1 hour to cook. It was finally ready when the kids should have been going to bed. However…
Bacon. Cheese. Eggs. Double cream. Could it be any simpler?
When we lived in England, we ate curry once a week. These days, it’s more like once every other month. I love curry, but the Indian restaurants in Switzerland are very different than in the UK, so when we want something authentic-ish, we have to make it ourselves.
I took a break from the Delia Project today to make a recipe that I haven’t made in a while. It was inspired by Bill Granger’s Puffed Apple Pancake and I’ve modified it to be gluten and dairy-free. The best thing about this recipe is that it’s wholesome enough for a breakfast, or you can serve it with vanilla ice-cream for dessert. Or eat it as a snack… any time of the day really!
At least once a week is Pizza Day in our house. I have a bread maker, so usually I just have to throw a few ingredients in the pan and leave it to do it’s thing for 45 minutes.
Today Munchkin #1 invited her friend for a sleep-over, so I thought I’d do an easy dinner with sausage rolls and other snacky foods.
I’ve made the Quick Flaky Pastry before, for the Flaky Fish Pie. It’s a great recipe and super-easy. But… I did stuff up making the sausage rolls. One of the ingredients – pork sausagemeat – I accidentally read as plain old pork mince, forgetting that sausagemeat contains herbs and seasoning. So unfortunately they were a bit bland.
But I’m sure there’ll be a next time, so for that I’ve found a good recipe for Homemade Sausagemeat on the ‘Recipes from a Normal Mum’ website.
These bread rolls truly are quick; they only require one rise. The recipe uses half wholewheat and half strong white flour, so the texture is not heavy at all. There’s 6 minutes of kneading required and I quite like pummelling dough for a bit! However, I don’t think my technique is quite up to it as my rolls were a little flat. Next time, my mixer and dough hook can take over this step.
This is a good, quick recipe and I would definitely make it again!
