CHOC HEDGEHOG

This is a more upmarket version of the old hedgehog recipe which was traditionally made with Marie biscuits.  This recipe substitutes sponge fingers for the biscuits, dark chocolate for the cocoa powder and also adds in almonds and cashews.  Much fancier altogether and I’m guessing much more delicious.

PORK CHOP CASSEROLE

Back in the 60s, which is around the time this recipe was published, the choice of pork cuts was a lot more limited than it is now.  You could buy roast pork and pork chops and not much else.  So although this recipe calls for shoulder pork shops you could really use any pork cut you wanted.  As it’s pre-metrics you need to convert the 10oz can of soup to 300ml and bake the casserole at 180o.

MEATLOAF IN A BASIN

Most meatloaves I know of are baked in a tin or hand molded into a loaf shape.  This is the first time I’ve seen a recipe that steams the loaf in a basin, but trust Mum to have cut out and kept something different.  The combination of potato, carrot and onions together with sausage meat and some spices in this recipe should make for a tasty loaf.
