This recipe comes from a Women’s Weekly segment entitled ‘Make-ahead Meatballs’. As it says it can be made the day before you need it and that can be really useful if you have a lot of people to cater for. I also think the corn chips and sour cream make it a winner!
With Christmas on the horizon I’m starting to look for recipes that will work on the big day. I think this salmon loaf would make a great starter. You could make it the day before and serve it cold with the yoghurt sauce and a light salad.
You can tell this an 80s recipe by the lovely wooden bowl and spoon in the picture. Not convinced that the spoon would be much good for getting the casserole out of the bowl though. Think a more modern metal one would do a far better job.
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.
This recipe was one of mother-in-law’s. Sadly she passed away many years ago so I don’t have too many of her recipes. She was a great cook though and this early version of Beef Stroganoff was one of my favourite things that she used to make.
