Our family had a great picnic in the park last Sunday and my lovely 7 year old granddaughter and I made a Savoury Luncheon Slice* to share. On the same page as that recipe is this other slice of Mum’s which is also an old family favourite. The two us will have to make it for the next picnic.
Don’t think this recipe will be for everyone. My family don’t like meat cooked with fruit and a whole lot of people don’t like prunes…..but…..if those two things don’t turn you off I think it could taste fairly good. Don’t worry if you don’t have an oven bag just cook it in a greased casserole dish with a lid.
I’ve been watching contestants on recent cooking shows struggling to successfully make doughnuts and thinking that it was a new dessert, that is until I found this old recipe in Mum’s collection. It made me look up the meaning of Oliebollen and Wikipedia describes them as “a traditional Dutch and Belgian food. They are called oliebollen in the Netherlands, while in Belgium they are also called smoutebollen and croustillons in French. In English they are more commonly known as Dutch Doughnuts or Dutchies.” Whatever the name they taste great, just hope you have more success with them than some of the contestants.
I always think of pinwheels being savoury not fruity and sweet, but this recipe is a great idea. With the apple in them they might go a bit soggy if you leave them in the tin too long, but I hopefully they’d be eaten before that could happen.
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.
A strange name I know, but this oven bag recipe for beef rolls looks quite tasty. I don’t think there’s really any necessity to use an oven bag if you don’t have one, they would work just as well in a casserole dish. You need 500g of steak and should cook them at 180o.
