Only a quick post tonight as it is late and I am bushed! More baking this morning. First, an old favourite - cheese puffs. My Mum used to make these and I forgot about them for quite a while but they are always popular when I make them these days. You need a really strong cheese for them though.
1 ¼ cups SR flour
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup milk
Mix together all ingredients and put tabsp in each patty pan. Bake in a fairly hot oven 10 minutes. When cold, slice and fill with cheese. Reheat in a moderate oven till cheese melts.
Next Bacon and Egg Pie. I haven't copied out the recipe for this yet so I can't post it. This was an experiment to see if my kids would like it - 50% success at least.
4 sheets ready rolled frozen puff pastry, thawed
600g beef mince
1 zucchini grated
2 carrots, grated
¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
½ teasp dried rosemary
1 tabsp sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 220°C. cut each pastry sheet in half. Combine mince, carrot, zucchini, parsley and rosemary in bow with one egg. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
Spoon ½ cup mixture on each half sheet of pastry. Brush edges with water and roll into a log. Place on papered tray. Using serrated edge knife cut each log into 3 pieces. Repeat with remaining mince and pastry. Beat remaining egg and brush rolls then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 30 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve warm with tomato sauce.
It has been a long day, but I did sort of manage to progress a little bit on my sewing! I managed to half make the letters for the pink quilts! I am determined to get them completed and ironed onto the quilts tomorrow. I was too tired tonight but tomorrow is another day.....
