Your pork loaf thingy sounds lovely Debbi**** , nicer than crap sausages. So what packet stuffing did you use? I am guessing if if is that Greggs sawdust muck, I might as well use breadcrumbs, some extra onion and a good dose of dried sage.

I'll be adding pork mince to my shopping list for tomorrow - thank you!

I used Paxo. (You can tell I went to Bramptins in Auckland last weekend) Good improvisation of yours without it though. I once lobbed in an ounce of porridge oats along with some dried sage because I had forgotten to get any stuffing mix !

Snipped chives and fennel tops from the garden and combined them with hens' eggs to make mayo which we used to go in our salad (from the garden), cheese and egg burgers and to slather over baby perlas for warm spud salad. Mmmmmm!

Combine all ingredients then bake in a hot oven for minimum 40 mins. Yummy. Serve with instant gravy, potatoes and a selection of veg. The recipe will make 2 portions, just up the quantities for more portions.
I'm glad y'all resurrected this thread again, cos I have made this several times now and love it. I double it up and cook for about 1.5 hours and makes enough for two days dinners. We had this on Sunday slightly cold, with roast baby perlas potatoes, salad, beetroot and coleslaw. Extra yum!

Yesterday with mash, peas, carrots, yorkshire puddings and gravy.

I reckon if there were enough it would be nice also in a sandwich with some mustard or pickle. For my next experiment I might even make it as a pie or a sausage roll filling.

I don't buy any tomato-based sauce anymore since my mate gave me a to-die-for and cheap recipe. Here it is:

Get some of those momma tins of toms and put in a pan with a decent slab of butter, several generous glugs of olive oil, a peeled whole onion (with a cross cut in the end) and some salt. Simmer for hours- it's better if it catches a little on the bottom of the pan. Keep going until it's the consistency you like- I usually take most out after 4 hrs for base sauce for pasta etc and let a bit more reduce down further for pizza sauce. Before taking some out remove the onion and crush a few cloves of garlic, chop some fresh herbs and more seasoning if needed and stir in for a couple of mins. Remove from heat and add balsamic vinegar.

The trick is not to be stingy with the oil and I sometimes use the oil I soak sun dried toms in too for even more flavour and sometimes I mash the toms up a bit. Ends up a delish deep red. Yum!

We have it on pasta with a little hard cheese and asparagus at this time of year- so cheap, easy and scrummy.

Unbelievably good on pizza- you'll never want to go back to bought topping again!

Unless anyone has some feijoa in the freezer, it will be a long time too before people here can try it, tis totally in the wrong season.
