POTATO BACON PINWHEELS

These would be great at a party or to have with drinks before dinner.  However you serve them, they’re quick, easy and tasty.

SAVOURY TOASTS

Tomato sauce and cheese on toast has been a well loved favourite in Mum’s and my households for years.  Mum also used to make a little afternoon tea/supper snack that was cheese and bacon on toast, but this recipe combines them both.  Personally I’m not sure about the garlic, but after finding this recipe I’m now going to give the sauce, cheese and bacon a go.

CHEESE SPREAD

Every time I pick my granddaughters up from school and take their lunch boxes out their school bags I’m astonished at how magnificent lunchboxes are these days.  When I was at school my lunch was a sandwich wrapped in lunch wrap and piece of fruit which Mum into a brown paper bag.  Unsurprisingly squashed sandwiches and squashed fruit were often the result.  Mum was also inventive with sandwich fillings, banana and sultanas, vegemite and celery, cheese and beetroot and sometimes a homemade cheese spread.  Not sure that this is the recipe she used as she wouldn’t have put sherry in her kids sandwiches, but it might be tasty for bigger kids lunches at work or uni or as a dip.

APPETISER CHICKEN WINGS

I’m usually very lazy and buy marinated chicken wings from the supermarket, but having found this recipe I’m now wondering why.  I especially like the tip about not leaving the wings too long in the marinade because the bought ones obviously have been and are very dark.

CRISPY CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

The recipe suggests using these chicken drumsticks hot or cold for picnics, but I think you could also make the recipe using chicken wings or chicken tenders and serve them up as party finger food.  The cornflake coating would give them a lovely crunch.
