We’re going to the F1 Grand Prix at Albert Park this weekend so I’m going to make a batch of these to take for lunch. But if you’re picnicking this Easter or any other time, they could work well for that too.
These look like a lot of fun and should appeal to the kids. The recipe uses Puff Pastry, but if you use shortcrust you can turn them into more of a pasty/pie. Can imagine they’ll be a bit messy to eat though, so get a napkin or wet flannel ready.
I can’t decide if this would make a good school lunchbox filler or whether it would go soggy. Maybe it would be best to try it out at home before school goes back next week just to check. If you don’t have any pita bread you could always put it in a sandwich instead.
I’ve decided not to make a traditional Christmas Cake this year and in the hunt for something different I came across this Christmas Stollen recipe. It’s not quite a cake more of a delicious yeast bread, but it will make a nice change.
With Christmas fast approaching and entertaining at home possible again, I’ve started to look for something new to make. I’m thinking if you add, as suggested, basil leaves on the top of these cases you’ll have a really good Christmas treat. They’d make a great addition to the Christmas table or for drinks with family and friends.
I can’t remember the first time I made a Spanish Omelet – it would have to have been at least 35 years ago. I’m not sure I ever had a proper recipe for it back then, it was just onions, potatoes and eggs. It was an easy Sunday night meal that everyone liked and we still enjoy it. Over the years I’ve added bacon, spinach, mushrooms or whatever I’ve got in the fridge, but onion and potato are always the base.
I’m not sure what makes this colonial, but I thought with the trend to making your own sourdough bread now, trying your hand at potato bread might make a change – colonial or not.
When I found this ‘Meat to press, pot and roll’ article Mum had kept from the Herald Sun in 1993 it reminded me that buried at the back of one of my kitchen cupboards is an old meat press of hers. She used it make it make various potted and pressed meats, which I confess I thought were the same thing until I read this definition.
Mum mainly made pressed meats, usually tongue or beef. The article has this recipe for Potted Beef and Potted Ham and also one for Pressed Tongue. I never liked Pressed Tongue and I have never wanted to make it and doubt that anyone else does either these days so I’ve left it out, but the Beef and Ham recipes sound good. The article also shows alternatives to using a meat press. I’ve used the bowl, plate and brick method and it works really well, guess that’s why Mum’s press is still at the back of the cupboard.
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.
