Breakfast or Brunch? I’m not too sure when you should have these, but I am sure that they’ll taste good when you do. They come from a 1980s booklet put out by the Australian Diary Corporation which is introduced by the bearded chef, Peter Russell-Clarke. Beside having some great recipes the booklet describes cheeses from Cheddar through to Pecorino and has a chart of which wine to have with which cheese. It’s a great little booklet. (If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making scones, it could work on bread roll or a muffin.)
Are you looking for a more interesting way to serve brussels sprouts? My childhood memory of this poor vegetable was a greenish/yellowish soggy mess on the plate – my husband still won’t eat them because his lovely Mum cooked them in the pressure cooker!!!! Of course, there’s no need to boil the life out of them, you can steam them, fry them, bbq them and even bake them in cream with parmesan cheese and walnuts as this recipe suggests.
This recipe was published by the Women’s Weekly in August 1992. Veal was more popular back then and wasn’t as expensive as it is now. I make a similar roast using beef so I think you could substitute beef or even lamb as the main meat and you change the minced veal as well.
This is another recipe from the Women’s Week Let’s Go Greek supplement. It uses fillo pastry, but you could change that to shortcrust or puff if you wanted to. The fillo would be lighter, but the others would still make a good pie.
I always thought this soup was made with pasta, but obviously I was completely wrong. Mum seems to have cut this from her bowls magazine back in the 80s, the reverse side has bowling results and an In Remembrance list of members who’d passed away. Maybe like Mum they live on through their recipes too.
This recipe reminds me of the Sunday night teas that Mum used to make. They were always something quick and easy to make that could be eaten with a fork while watching TV, that new fangled miracle that came into our lives after the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games.
Another recipe from the Tiger Oven Bag collection. The marinade sounds tasty and except for crushing the garlic not much work. Like most of the oven bag recipes I don’t think the bag is essential, cooking it in a little oil in a dish would work just as well.
Long before packets of cheese twists appeared on our supermarket shelves this recipe was printed in the New Idea. Making them might take a bit more effort than just putting the packet in your trolley, but they have a stronger cheese flavor and because you make more they work out a lot cheaper.
