We were on holiday in Tenerife last week. It’s the first time I’ve been to the island and I was struck by one thing when there. Eating out on the island is almost entirely an awful experience, at least for the first two days Continue reading “Tenerife”
I made these sausage rolls when we had a few friends over at the weekend. They went down a treat and I had to be quick to grab one myself. In fact they were so successful and are so easy to make that my brother used the idea at Hogmanay. Just take a pack of good quality sausages (I used Tesco’s pork and caramelised onion) and remove the sausage meat from the skins. Mush it all up and place in a long tube on a ready-rolled sheet of puff pastry. Brush a little egg wash on the edges and tuck the pastry over the sausagemeat. Cut into thumb sized rolls, slash the tops, brush with more egg wash then cook for 25-30 minutes in a 200C oven.
This cooking lark is easy. Well, sometimes it is anyway. This paté is a case in point. It’s almost ludicrous how simple it is to knock this up in a couple of minutes. I had a day off today so for lunch I threw a few spoonfuls of crowdie and a few smoked mackerel fillets into a small food processor with some horseradish, parsley and smoked paprika. Blitz it for a minute or so then spread it on hot buttered toast. Ridiculously good lunch in minutes.
