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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As it says this is similar to a pastie, but instead of chopping the meat and vegetables up you layer them and then put a pastry lid on top. Although it doesn’t say to, I’d make sure you put a few slits in the pastry lid to let the steam out.
