You can see from the typing that this is an old recipe. I used to make it back in the 70s and 80s and serve it as an entree with thin slices of toast. It was cheap and easy to make – ideal. I rediscovered it this year and now make it to have with drinks. It freezes well so I just put out what I need and keep the rest for later. If you don’t want to do that you can easily halve the recipe.
With Mum’s 100th birthday only a couple of months away I’ve started to look for party recipes. I found these microwave recipes which were published by The Sun in March 1986 around the time everyone was buying a microwave, but still not quite sure what to do with it. I’m not sure I’d use my microwave to cook them today though, as I think we’ve now figured out what works and what doesn’t in it.
