DILL SALMON LOAF with Piquant Yoghurt Sauce

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.

CHUNKY CHICKEN IN SPICY ONION & MUSHROOM SAUCE

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.

PEAR AMARETTI CHEESECAKE

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.

MUSHROOM, SPINACH & FETA QUICHE

This is another no-pastry quiche which Mum collected from the New Idea.  I’m not sure what the difference between a quiche without pastry and a frittata is.  I suspect it’s just  the country it’s made in – Quiche, Australia – Frittata, Italy.  What do you think?
