Nice 👍

Easiest thing ever if you have unexpected visitors and want to give them something with a cuppa. As long as they like savoury things more than sweet

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1 cup milk

Mix, pour into non-stick muffin tins. I bake them @ 180c in a fan forced oven until golden brown, around 10 - 12 minutes. You can add any sort of dry ingredient you fancy, herbs, black pepper etc but they're delicious just as they are.

Sorry JG, no pic

A pic isn't required.

Edit: It's good to see that this thread has been revived with a recipe.

Couldn't get much easier than that. I'll give it a go tonight

Made that sticky bbq lamb dish last night, with steaks instead of ribs and it was amazing.

River Cottage Australia for the recipe. Shame the show isn't coming back.

Gave that a go, well similar, but a different sausage and it was pretty good

Good question! This is what I'm trying tomorrow:

She calls it delicious & easy. It's not all that easy, IMO, but it looks do-able...& hopefully delicious.

My grandad always made turkey curry when I went over on Boxing day. Was delicious and a perfect change from the festive foods.

How did that work out?

We've often done a pot pie, though without a crust and using a left over yorkie over the top, which is pretty good.

Ended up doing a taco this year, but didn't have much left overs, because we didn't have so much room to bring it back with us from Maine.

Right, I eat paleo. For those that don't know, this is a very low carb, high (good) fat and protein diet. Now, I can't eat bland foods, etc. So I am adventurous and trying new things out! I'm sure some of you may have made new years resolutions to be healthier and get fitter maybe.

I struggle to give up some foods such as dressings and mayo. Below is my recipe for homemade mayo that has none of the bad fats and bad additives in it, just good fats and is a good mayo for you!

Ingredients
- 2 egg yolks
- 3 tsp lemon juice (preserves it a little)
- 1/2 cup light olive oil
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1tsp mustard (optional, I sometimes swap for garlic powder)

Method
1) Let it all come to room temp, most importantly the eggs!
2) Stick all ingredients in a tall glass, preferably the glass the mayo will be stored in (Tall mason jar is what I use).
3) Using an immersion blender, start from the very bottom. When it starts to look like mayo, move the blender to the top slowly. Go up and down a few times to ensure it all mixes well.

I use this mayo as a vegetable dip, or a base for ranch or any salad dressing. I can share my ranch dressing recipe if you are interested, just let me know! It's a good source of good fats and protein too, as is much better than store bought. You can change the oils for avocado or nut oils, it's up to you.

If you are feeling up for it, and I sometimes do this for a switch, swap all the oil for a cup of bacon fat instead. Yes, bacon fat isn't as good for you as the others, but it's still fat you'd need. I make this for a treat mayo now and again. You'll have baconnaise, and that stuff is the dogs b's.

It was OK, netted me some compliments from the diners. But somehow not as interesting as I had hoped.... I should have tried a yorkie on top!

It was a brilliant way to use up Christmas dinner left-overs, though. For some reason I had way too much gravy --first time that's ever happened, and I blame the dieters --so I thickened it up and whacked it in, as well as lots of turkey meat, & one bit of left-over pie-crust that needed to be got rid of. Then I added lots of frozen peas & carrots.

But I do wonder why Americans rave about pot pies? Comfort food?

Thanks for this recipe, Maste!!! I will definitely try it, as we have family members (including The Husband) who need to absolutely slather mayo on every sandwich they make. (I don't see the appeal myself....)

Plus I've been wracking my brain to figure out how to use more coconut oil ever since I bought a huge jar of it a while ago. Coconut oil is supposed to be one of the best fats to eat to help aging brains stay healthy, and our aging brains need a little help these days....
