Cheese and bacon whirls (of which I ate far too many) ..............
Basically a cheese scone mix (salt, white pepper and mustard powder for plenty of flavour) mixed with egg and milk and with more cheese and minced lean unsmoked bacon laid on top before being rolled up and cut into slices. A great use for Sainsbury's cooking bacon (£1.09 for 660g) as is the Bacon and Onion suet pudding we had for dinner last night. I was going to take a pic this morning but the remaining portion in the fridge has gone! For a cheap and easy dinner if anybody is interested .......
Bacon and Onion Suet Pudding
250g SR flour
Pepper, mustard powder and a little salt for seasoning
225g lean unsmoked bacon (rashers, chopped or minced)
1 large onion chopped
Mix all dry ingredients together with water for a manageable dough and roll out on a floured surface to about (guessing here) 9" x 12". Place bacon and onion on top and, starting from the short end, roll up like a swiss roll. Parcel in foil and, making sure any joins in the foil are on top, place into pan and steam for 2.5hrs.
We had apple shortcake this week too, here's one I made earlier:
I can't remember which recipe I used for the one in the photo but this week it was from Nigel Slater's "Kitchen Diaries" .............. just as he says except I don't caramelise the Bramleys too much as I prefer the crisp clean look of the apple and cooked for a little longer (more like 1hr rather than 40 minutes but that could be my oven and the fact I placed the baking tin on a tray) to prevent a soggy middle ............ the apples keep it moist anyway. Oh, and I've ate far too much of that as well!
