I’ve taken the liberty of renaming this recipe. I don’t think Little Muffin Pies gives any indication of what they actually are. The only muffin connection seems to be the muffin shape, which means that you could use any pie dish as long as it was deep enough to hold the mixture and stand the egg upright. I like the idea of biting into it and discovering the egg………….
I was looking for something to make to take on a picnic and found this recipe. This size is meant to be served warm with drinks, but I think larger ones would be OK to eat cold at a picnic, so I might give them a go.
To begin with I thought this was corn beef fritters (which would have been good), but when I read the ingredients I realised it’s rissoles/hamburgers with corn, which is till a good mix. I think they’d also work well if you used minced pork with a bit of soy sauce or even minced chicken.
I’m sure there’s a much more authentic way to make Mexican rice around now, but back in February 1972 Sunwhite rice published this recipe in the Woman’s Day. It mightn’t be a true taste of Mexico, but could still be a tasty dish.
This is a nice meaty pasta bake with carrot, celery and mushrooms cunningly hidden to fool those picky eaters. I like that you can make it and freeze it as it’s always great to have something in the freezer for those busy or lazy nights when you just don’t have time or feel like cooking.
This recipe is probably how we really think of meatballs, Italian style, served with pasta. I’m not sure Mum would have put the olives in as she and Dad didn’t like them, but I think they are the ingredient that makes the Italian difference.
