I’ve made and eaten savory zucchini fritters, but never sweet ones. The idea seems a little strange, but I guess zucchinis are used to make cakes and bread, so why not??
Frittatas are such a useful thing to make. They can be fancy or fairly simple. They can be served hot or cold. You can make them for guests, the family or take them on a picnic. The list of things you can put in them is long, but this is the first time I’ve seen a recipe using sun-dried tomatoes and rice – I think it’s worth a try.
There’s a little bit of work with these, you need to the make the filling, then wrap them in the spring roll wrapper and then fry them until their lovely and crisp. Worth it though when you take the first bite……
These are a nice combination of prawns, peanuts and spices. They are quick and easy to make and delicious when dipped in the sauce.
The traditional egg and bacon pie in our family never has tomato or onion in it, so to me this is a very fancy version. But if you must add the tomato my advice would be not to add too much as it can make it soggy – or just follow our example and leave it (and maybe the onion as well) out. Sometimes the old way is the really best way!!!!!
Since our trip to Spain and Portugal last year I’ve become very fond of chorizo sausages and am using them in all sorts of dishes. This week I made Spanish Beef with Chorizo in the slow cooker and I really like them sliced and fried in cider with a glass of wine. So adding them into hash browns can only be a good thing.
My daughter and her family have been caught up in the latest Melbourne hotspot lockdown and are now faced with another four weeks of social isolation. It’s hard for them to return to the conditions that most us us have now been freed from, but one of the positives of the last round was that our lovely 9 year old granddaughter cooked lunches for them. So I’m posting this easy hash brown and baked bean recipe for her to try this time.
So what is a Bounty Day pie you’re asking……well according to Wikipedia…. ‘Bounty Day is a holiday on both Pitcairn Island, destination of the Bounty mutineers, and on Norfolk Island. It is celebrated on 23 January on Pitcairn, and on 8 June on Norfolk Island, the day that the descendants of the mutineers arrived on the island’. I guess this is a pie they make to celebrate the day, although it does seem fairly similar to a Greek beef and spinach pie – don’t suppose it matters what you call it, as long as it tastes good.
