DILL SALMON LOAF with Piquant Yoghurt Sauce

With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter.  You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.

POTATO MOUSSAKA

As this says it’s not a traditional moussaka.  Traditional Greek moussaka is made with eggplant and this recipe uses potato in it’s place.  I think that using both eggplant and potato would work really well too, but making a traditional mince and tomato base sauce would probably be a lot better than a can of braised steak and onions.

CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE PASTA PIE

In this recipe cooked pasta with a cheese and mustard sauce is pressed into a pie dish and baked to form a crust.  The filling of chicken, leek, carrot and zucchini is added and then topped with more of the pasta mix.  A quite different sort of chicken and vegetable pie.

LAMB CHOPS WITH MUSTARD CRUST

Lamb is such a versatile meat.  You can roast it, casserole it, grill and bbq it, whatever you have the time or the taste for.  The page of lamb recipes that Mum kept from July 1997 showcases this versatility.  This recipe give a basic lamb chop a real lift and makes a change from just eating it with tomato sauce.
