Hi all,

Well don't often get time to cook but thought I would give it a go last
night with it being a special day - i.e. it wasn't snowing Smile

Trying to decide what to cook was the first hurdle but I remembered one
of those ads on the TV with a serving suggestion that I had wanted to
try out.

So basically it was the one with a Chicken fillet - seasoned, sliced down the middle
to form a pocket, filled with Philadelphia garlic & herb cheese, then
closed together with a wrap of smokey bacon. In the oven in a dish on
a bed of onions and red & green peppers and cooked for 25mins.
Served with boiled and roast potatoes and assorted veg.

Well blow me down - it came out perfect and my girls ate it all (a good sign) Smile
All from just seeing the ad on TV - ok not rocket science but I
was still pleased with the result.

This was the first time I have even seen a serving suggestion on TV and
tried it and wondered if you had tried any and what your favourites are??

Ok I was in Cyprus when I saw the AD... on ITV via the internet... so it's
still a Cypriot recipe Laughing

Cheers

Steve

Sounds delicious Steve. I've been a hobby cook most of my life. I also like to eat out for the social aspect. Nowadays you can buy everything you need in Cyprus. Can't understand why some people go to a fancy restaurant and order STEAK costing 26 euros or more. Once you know how to cook steak, you pay only about 7 euros to buy from a good butcher. Here's the best way: First it must be a slice of beef fillet, really thick - at least 3 cm. because it schrinks. Pre-heat the oven to 130. Heat a steel frying pan with a little oil till it is very hot. Then put in steak (and stand back!). Fry hot on each side for about 2 mins. till steak is brown. Then add pepper and salt and (here's the important bit) put the pan with steak in an oven at 130C. For rare: 3 mins, for medium-rare 5-7 mins, for well-done 10-15 mins. This way the juice (blood) gets distributed and the steak doesn't "bleed" on the plate. Serve with lots of fried union rings or mushrooms fried and mixed with cream cheese with herbs (Lidl) and fried wedge potatoes (deep frozen?). Serve shiraz or cabernet sauvignon (for perfection in BIG glasses 1/3 full).

Sounds like there's a lot of us here cooking for pleasure Cool ...This is one that I tried in the last cold spell, it's cheap and tasty and all the family loved it!
Sausages with oregano, mushrooms & olives

450g of sausages (you can use any but if the spicey local vartiety pre cook and add afterwards so as not to get the fat and oil into the dish..We've also made this dish with chicken and pork!
1 tsp sunflower oil
2 tsp dried oregano
2 (or more Smile )garlic cloves , sliced
400g can chopped tomatoes
200ml beef stock
100g pitted black olives in brine
500g pack mushrooms , thickly sliced

Cut the sausages into meatball-size pieces. Heat a large pan and fry the pieces in the oil for about 5 mins until golden all over.
Add the oregano and garlic, fry for 1 min more, then tip in the tomatoes, stock, mushrooms & olives* (but not the brine! *get the best you can find, it makes a difference)
Simmer for 15 mins until the sausages are cooked through and the sauce has reduced a little. Serve with mashed potato or pasta.

for those with a table top round fan oven:

Take a fillet of pork and wrap it in streaky bacon. With the joins down, lightly brown it in a frying pan.

Transfer it to the centre of theglass oven an add some olive oil, olives and a couple of long red peppers deseeded placed alongside.

Cook for around 60 minutes at 150.

serve the the pork fillet in medallions on a bed of wilted spinach cooked in the pan that was used to brown the bacon.
