SAUSAGES IN OVERCOATS

I think you’re supposed to make these for kids parties, but with a bit of luck there’s some left over for the adults.  They’re best using cocktail frankfurts, but you can use chipolata sausages if you prefer.

CRUSTLESS HAM AND POTATO SLICE

This recipe reminds me of the Sunday night teas that Mum used to make.  They were always something quick and easy to make that could be eaten with a fork while watching TV, that new fangled miracle that came into our lives after the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games.

CURRIED PICNIC PACKAGES

Finding things that are easy to make, taste good cold and are transportable for a picnic is always a challenge.  Homemade pasties have always been a family favourite with us.   I think this recipe which adds a little curry and fruit to the traditional flavour is a bit of a winner.

CORN PANCAKES

I don’t remember Mum making these, but she used to  make sweet corn patties which were always one of my favourites.  For those she used sweet corn kernels, for these pancakes you use creamed corn so you’d get a smoother mixture.  I think I’ll give them a try, they sound good.  Convert -10oz can to 310g size.

CHICKEN AND PASTA LOAF

Although the sun might be shinning and it’s not quite picnic season yet, I couldn’t resist adding this recipe to the collection.  Of course you could have it hot for lunch or an evening meal with vegetables, but cold with a few slices of fresh bread and a little chutney………..yum.
