Talking about this sandwich today is going to be tough. Thinking about those sticky caramelised onions and the sweetness of the figs against the creaminess of the brie makes my mouth water instantly but i’m fasting today, so I don’t want to think about it for too long. In my experience fasting is good for the soul. A kind of spiritual cleanse. So as much as I want to sink my teeth into this sandwich, I will instead imagine feeding my soul until dinner time, when I will wrap my chops around this beauty.
What a way to start the day ay? Rice Krispie Cereal bars are great for eating on those mornings when you are in a rush to get out of the door. I love rice krispies and I love how people use them in cake decoration too!
The secret to the perfect chip shop chips is to use great potatoes – I use maris piper, cutting the potatoes into thick cuts, ensuring the chips are washed and dried before frying, blanching the chips and allowing them to cool before one final fry, using clean oil, serving immediately and liberal amounts of salt and vinegar.
Everyone loves peri peri chicken burgers right? I served mine with these brioche buns that were surprisingly easy to make. I also made my chicken as flat as I could, because the kids wanted to eat pretty sharpish. These burgers have all the flavours of that famous Nandos peri peri sauce. It’s basically a Nandos copycat burger. Did you see our recipe for Nandos chicken? Do give that a try too!
Mexican Chicken, Tortilla, Beans and Corn Casserole
Mexican chicken, tortilla, beans and corn casserole – yum. This is great for a get together or during school holidays when the kids are always eagerly waiting for a meal. I have made it as easy as possible, including getting a rotisserie chicken. If at all possible, don’t get anything too heavily flavoured because it will clash with the other flavours.
