I love these! Always buy them and fry up for breakfast or lunch, but going to try making my own as so much cheaper!!
You can freeze leftover ones to reheat later
85g porridge oats
85g plain whole meal flour
1/2 tsp yeast
Blitz oats and water with stick blender
Stir in flour and yeast
Cover and leave in fridge overnight or out for 2-3 hours, until bubbles appear
This makes 4… basically cook like pancakes, approx 2 mins each side
I make spaghetti Bolognese all the time and never follow a recipe so thought I’d try one. I’m just going to list the ingredients. It was loosely based on a recipe in good food but I was too cheap to buy some of the ingredients and too lazy to do the mince in the suggested way! I fried off the mince, drained it, and then fried the onions before adding all the rest in one go and cooking for maybe an hour or two… yummy!!
Chop the carrot and celery in food processor before adding so they are really small…
1kg mince (low fat or drain early on)
2 onions, diced
1 large carrot (didn’t have one!)
2 sticks celery
2 cans tomatoes
Glass of red wine
2 bay leaves
Sundried tomato paste (will start buying this, think it was good addition!)
Chopped and added nearer end (could vary these veg!)
Made this to use up my Christmas pudding! Delicious! Will definitely make every year, everybody loves them!!!
All ingredients are swappable and approx… use what you have!!!
The original idea, and the one I’ve done for a few years, is based on nigella’s Christmas puddini bonbons, but this recipe is entirely my own!
350g leftover cooked Christmas pudding
150g biscuits (I used a layer of danish biscuits as we aren’t that keen on them… increase or decrease biscuits to make up the weight with whatever pudding you have left!
200g cheap dark chocolate
Large tablespoon butter…
Large squeeze golden syrup
Some dried cranberries (I bought these to jazz it up… you could omit these or put in some Christmas smarties or similar… don’t think it’s worth adding cherries or sultanas as these are in the pudding but you could!!
Maybe a small bit of alcohol… I didn’t, but might in future!
Melt chocolate with butter and golden syrup
Blend biscuits and pudding in blender. Actually, do this first as takes a while
Mix all together with any additional ingredients
Line a baking tray and push into it. Chill in fridge then cut up and enjoy!!
This idea intrigues me!! Definitely adds an extra dimension to the burgers!
Originally from good food
250g pouch of mixed grains
500g minced turkey
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
Coriander (ideally seeds, toasted and crushed… I will prob use normal)
4 tbsp harissa (I may reduce this down… think a little hot for kids!!)
Finely chopped parsley (will prob use dried)
Cook the grain according to packet instructions
When cool tip into a bowl and mix well with other ingredients
Chill so they don’t break up
I will probably oven these but you could fry them
This is a good food recipe. I’ve bought the ingredients loads of times but not made it, but I really really want to!! Love macaroni cheese!!
600ml whole milk (I will probably try semi as that’s what I buy!)
50g cubed butter
50g soft cheese
100g grated mature cheddar
20g Parmesan (I will probably omit this and add extra normal cheese)
Pour boiling water over the pasta, then drain
Put everything in slow cooker and stir well
Put on low for one hour
Put on low for another 30 mins until pasta is cooked
You may want to take lid off for last 10 mins to help it reduce down (or do this on hob) apparently it depends on size and brand of slow cooker 🙂
Just reminded if this by finding the original recipe in good food magazine… but I’ve simplified it quite a bit!!
Apparently it’s from el vermut cocktail bar in London, so it must be good!!
Some sliced fruit (banana, orange, pear, lemon… wouldn’t buy specially, whatever you have in!!
Can of peaches in syrup
200ml red vermouth (this is a key ingredient for the flavour!)
Bottle red wine
200ml bitter lemon (or lemonade, but I prefer the bitter lemon!!)
Mix all the fruit, including the syrup from the peaches, in the bottom of your jug
Add the vermouth, then red wine
Add the ice then top up with bitter lemon and stir to combine
You might want to stir in some sugar… if you like it sweeter… I think we do this!
This is an amazing summer drink! One of my faves 🙂
Looking forward to making these for New Year’s Eve… based on a recipe from Jane’s patisserie…
400g white choc
125g Biscoff spread
150g marshmallows (mini)
250g crushed biscuits (ideally Biscoff ones or a mix!)
Melt the chocolate and butter together (slowly as white choc can split more easily)
Melt the Biscoff in a separate bowl (30 secs)
Add the crushed biscuits and marshmallows (and any other rocky road ingredients you fancy)
Push into a pan. If you like drizzle with spread or add more biscuits to decorate
Chill until set (will be a little softer than normal rocky road)
Cut and eat!!!
We have quite a bit of apple sauce from sharing not wasting so might make this to use it up…
125 ml olive oil
140g maple syrup
130g apple sauce
185g ground almonds
1tsp baking powder
Blend the batter in a processor, starting with the wet ingredients and gradually adding the dry
Put in cake tin and bake for 30-40 mins
Fry up some diced real apple with maple syrup and spices to make a topping if you want to serve as a pudding
