Three Favourite Meals from this Week

Here is this week’s edition of what I have been cooking this week. I have included some recipes and hope that they provide some meal inspiration for you.

Corn and Bean Casserole with Sweet Potato Scones

This was a good hearty meal full of veg and flavour. I decided that sweet potato would go well with it and found a recipe for sweet potato scones.

For the casserole I used
-1 tin of taco beans in spicy sauce
-1 tin of tomatoes
-1 diced shallot
– Half 1 red pepper diced
– 1 garlic clove minced
-1/2 cup of frozen sweetcorn

I cooked these in an oven proof pan and made up the scones. I followed a recipe book for this. It involved cooking and mashing sweet potatoes and adding them to a savoury scone mix which I made up following the recipe. I cut the scones into large circles and added on top of the casserole and baked for about 15 minutes.


Cheesy Leek and Spinach Pie.

This was another lovely meal. I cooked leeks, spinach, green beans and peas and seasoned well. I made a cheese sauce and covered the greens in it. This was encased in a shortcrust pastry and I baked in my heart shaped dish.

I served with fried new potatoes and greens.

Sausage and Bean Bake with Baked Eggs,

This was my favourite meal of the week, here’s how to make it;

Ingredients
– 2 sausages chopped up
-1 diced shallot
-1 finely chopped garlic clove
– 1 tin of kidney beans
-1 tin of tomatoes
-1 tin of baked beans
– 1/2 tsp of hot paprika
– 1 tsp of dried oregano
– 1 tbsp oil
– salt and pepper
– 4 eggs
– grated cheddar for sprinkling on top

Method
1. Gently fry shallots and sausages in the oil until lightly browned and then add the garlic, oregano and paprika.( Use an oven proof pan)

2. Add the beans and tomatoes and simmer for about 20 minutes. Season as required.

3. Crack the eggs into the pan and bake in the oven at a high temperature for about 6 minutes.

4. Once dished up add on the grated cheddar.

I served this with some sweet potato wedges. This meal could be made without sausages to suit vegetarians.

The eggs were cooked so that the yolks lovely and runny.

Hope you had great week and have eaten some lovely food!
