SAVOURY TOASTS

Tomato sauce and cheese on toast has been a well loved favourite in Mum’s and my households for years.  Mum also used to make a little afternoon tea/supper snack that was cheese and bacon on toast, but this recipe combines them both.  Personally I’m not sure about the garlic, but after finding this recipe I’m now going to give the sauce, cheese and bacon a go.

MERINGUE TOPPED APPLE CUSTARD

I have no idea who Adam is, so I thought I’d rename this recipe Meringue Topped Apple Custard.  What I like about it is, that as with a lot of the old recipes, there’s no fancy ingredients, just things you have in the cupboard.  In this case, milk, bread, butter, apples, vanilla essence, eggs and sugar so that makes it a great ‘last minute’ dessert.

LEMON BISCUIT SLICE – NO BAKE

This recipe pops up a couple of times in Mum’s collection.  The first one is pre-metrics so it dates from at least the 1970s.  This version has been converted which makes it a bit easier for us now.  It’s a pretty simple no bake slice, but it does taste lovely and lemony.

CHOC HEDGEHOG

This is a more upmarket version of the old hedgehog recipe which was traditionally made with Marie biscuits.  This recipe substitutes sponge fingers for the biscuits, dark chocolate for the cocoa powder and also adds in almonds and cashews.  Much fancier altogether and I’m guessing much more delicious.
