Me and Neil are slightly obsessed with these gluten free sausage rolls with chilli jam. In fact, despite Neil being able to eat ‘normal’ food, the first time I made them, he declared that they were the nicest thing I’d ever made.
Whilst I’ve already got a popular fruit scone recipe on the blog, I was keen to hunt down a good savoury variation for you to whip up too. I’d also been eager to test out scones made with buttermilk. I felt it would make them a bit squishier inside. I was right…it does!
Googling ‘scones with buttermilk’ I came across a smashing recipe over on Sainsbury’s food website. And it’s that very one I’ve jiggled about with to rustle up this recipe for gluten free cheese and red onion buttermilk scones.
So often the recipes I share with you are not about originality but more about rustling up good old classics that I just fancy eating. But it’s funny, how sometimes you forget about things you’ve enjoyed in the past. Welsh rarebit is one of the many delicious things that had slipped my mind, until recently that is, when I delighted in it all over again and wondered why the heck, I’d left it out of my life for so long.
I do love a good tasty canapé. For me, it’s a perfect morsel to pop into your mouth whilst enjoying a glass of chilled fizz!
Canapés make a great pre-dinner starter. Just that bit of something, to ‘put you on’, before heading to the table to tuck into the main meal – giving the designated cook a much needed bit of breathing space to crack on with stuff while your nicely preoccupied with something to graze on! And of course canapés are great to serve up over the festive period too…an ideal Christmas party nibble!
As with many of the recipes I share with you, it’s not always my first intention to do so, but instead, the fact that I’ve just fancied rustling up something particular for myself to eat, and when it turns out great, I get all giddy and think, Oooh, must tell you about it too! And that’s exactly what happened last weekend, when I whipped up some gluten free creamed mushrooms on toast for my lunch!
The idea for these gluten free crispy cheese and onion potato bakes materialised from making basic potato cakes (which are simply, cold seasoned mashed potato, with a little added gluten free flour/mix, the mixture is then moulded into patties and pan fried…preferably in butter!). So yes, I popped these bakes together the other day and they were so good, that I needed to let you know about them too!
I do love pancakes and the great thing is they are so quick and easy to rustle up. They also only require basic store cupboard ingredients. Which more often or not you will probably already have on hand in your kitchen.
