Feeding the Family Friday...

Hi everyone,

Fridays are all about what we've been eating in the last week. This is when I will post up meal recipes I think you'll enjoy or recipes that have been requested.

I forgot to photograph this before dishing up! It's not a very good photo but it was delicious! 

This is the baked bean lasagne.

My favourite meal from this week...roast chicken :)

Now for this weeks recipe...

Cheese and Onion Pie
1). Grate some cheese. This is how much I did to fit the size dish I needed to feed my family...adjust to suit your family.

2). Brown an onion and add to the cheese.

3). Add black pepper and a shake of parsley.

4). Combine with a beaten egg and a pot of single could use milk here if you want to (284ml was what I used) until you have a sloppy mixture.

5). Roll out some short crust pastry... I used ready rolled simply because it was on offer when I shopped. You could make your own or just roll out shop bought quite thinly. 

6). Cover the pie dish and cut around. I always prick pastry with a fork then brush with beaten egg or milk.

7). Bake in the oven for 20-30 mins at 180oC. Keep an eye on it incase it starts to brown too much. 

Be careful when you eat it...that cheese gets very hot!

Thanks for reading...

  1. Hi Mandy, I love the new blog but unfortunately cant comment as there was some problem with a sign in account or something but I am here reading :-)
    I haven't done many full meals this week as hubby been on odd extra overtime shifts and never wants a full dinner when he's been working all day, usually something light. I will be doing a full Sunday dinner this week though as I didn't do one last weekend as we went to Scarborough for the Armed forces weekend and meals were mainly fish and chips, Subway & café stuff,
    I also haven't done any baking for quite a while and need to start using up the dried goods I have in the spare bedroom or they will be too far out of date to be of any use, which I don't want to happen.
    Well at last its the weekend but unfortunately it goes by way too fast and I will be back at work before I know it. Hopefully I can get back into my "proper" cooking soon. take care jane

    1. Hi Jane, I don't what the problem could be??

      I am trying to get back into baking and my new style of blogging is really motivating me around the house.

      There is never enough hours in the day!

      Hope you're having a good weekend xx
