Feeding the Family Friday...

Hi everyone 

Here is some of the food we've eaten since Friday...

Potato Cheese Pie

One Pan Pork Chops

This was lovely but the baking dish needed a soak!

Cheesy Gammon Rolls

4 slices gammon or ham
4 leeks
25g butter
1tbsp plain flour
150ml single cream
1/2 tsp English mustard
Pinch of ground nutmeg
75g granted cheese


1). Boil leeks for 5 mins. Drain well (reserve 150ml of the water)

2). Roll gammon around the leeks and put into a shallow ovenproof dish.

3). Melt butter and add flour, stirring. Gradually add leek water, cream, mustard and nutmeg. Bring to the boil, stirring all the time. Add most of the cheese.

4). Pour sauce over leeks and gammon and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

5). Bake for 25-30 mins @ 190oC

also made a really simple cheese cake...

Bash some digestive biscuits (depends how big you want to make it) and add melted butter to bind it together. Press into a serving dish with the back of a metal spoon. Chill in the fridge while you make the filling...empty a tub of soft (philidelphia) cheese into a bowl and stir in some lemon curd. I used 8 heaped teaspoons to get it right. Spread over the chilled base and chill until ready to eat (photo at the end because once again I couldn't type under a photo!)
