Here’s one for entertaining this summer, actually it pretty good all year round. I’ve been making it since the 80s and it still tastes great and feeds a crowd.
I confess to liking salmon, whether it’s smoked, baked, grill or even tinned, so that’s probably why I really like this salmon pate. You need to use red salmon to get a good flavour, that makes it a little more expensive, but it does make a good amount. As it says it’s quick, easy to make and everyone seems to like it. Also, leftovers are great on toast this next morning!!!
I’ve made lots and lots of sweet cheesecakes over the years, but I’m yet to make a savoury one. This chicken one looks good though, so watch out family I’m going to give it a go next time you all come around.
As you can see this recipe is from the Keysborough Bowls Social Club Simple Slice Recipe book. I’ve never made it, but I can remember seeing it on the table at a few “bring a plate” events back in the 70s when my kids were little. It’s sort of a fake vanilla slice – the plate was always empty at the end of the event it must taste good.
Like Mum I have a pretty large collection of cheesecake recipes, but this is the first one I’ve come across that uses Italian Macaroons as a base and pears as a topping. You could use fresh pears in place of the canned ones if you wanted to, but I think you’d need to poach them first to soften them.
Among Mum’s recipe cutouts I found an article on Cheesecakes. It has four different types of bases, unbaked cheesecake recipes and a basic baked cheesecake with several variations. I’ve divided the article up and this is the unbaked cheesecake using ricotta cheese. I’ve also add a recipe from a Nestles leaflet which uses cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk, which is a bit different. I must admit I prefer a baked cheesecake, but an unbaked or refrigerator one is quicker to make and can taste just as good.
