Recipe time

Tonight, I’ll be sharing my favourite pancake omelette recipe in the whole world EVER!

If you’ve got me on Twitter and have a good memory, you’d know that I used to tweet about making a potato pancake omelette with chillies, a lot!

I first stumbled across this recipe completely by accident, no – really! 😆

I was peckish at home but saw that I only had a few potatoes, eggs and chillies, milk, and flour – excluding the usual seasoning products like salt and pepper (of course, cos like do they ever FINISH? 😂 #CupboardShelfLifeStrong).

All  We Need Is LOVE (and):

  • Potatoes
  • Green and Red Chillies
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cheese (optional) – trust me, it’s Gouda!
  • Pancake Mix (flour, butter/oil, eggs, and milk)

What have I got to do to make you LOVE me (and want to make this):

I peeled the potatoes and chopped them really finely, and did the same with the chillies. I put them to one side as I set out to make the panacake batter.

You know how to make a pancake batter, right? If not, I’ll attach a link to it when I get home. Be BAEtient, for BAEtience is a virtue. #HaveALittleBaetience < if you don’t take anything at all from my blog, ‘Take That‘.

So, anyway, after the pancake batter gets mixed, chuck in the chopped potatoes and red/green chillies. At this point you should really be thinking about turning your HOB on, cos these things don’t cook themselves y’know…

Remember to keep the mixture on the heat until it starts to bubble up (like it would a pancake). The best way to tell is to run a spatula around the sides – if it doesn’t rip/tear too much, it’s ready to flip and cook the front too.

Be sure NOT to burn your potatoes. You don’t want to eat charcoal where your potatoes used to be. I think we’ve established charcoal is best used in skincare and inside barbecue grills.

Once it’s all cooked nicely, turn off the heat and apply the seasoning to your preference. All that’s left now is to DIG IN like you’re filming ‘Holes: The Movie‘.

I don’t have pictures yet, but I’ll upload it when I get home. Sorry. BAER with me, yeah? Thanks.

It’s #NationalToastDay and I came home to make some French Toast.

It’s not March yet so I’m trying to get as much chocolate crammed into my system w/o bringing on the old diabetes.

So, anyway, the recipe is as follows…

Ingredients:

1) A slice (or 7,890) of Genius Protein Bread (no, really – it’s called Genius!) 🍞

2) Alpro Chocolate Soya Milk 🍼

3) One Organic Free-Range Egg – straight from the hen (or the shop IF you don’t live in a barn) 🍳

4) Ground Cinnamon

5) Coconut Oil/Sunflower Oil/Low Fat Butter (ONE OF THESE, CHOOSE YOUR PERFERRED) for frying.

Method?

Beat egg and add milk, mix, then dip the bread in a bowl to coat. 🍳 🍼

Fry on a medium heat (but let the pan heat up, and allow the oil or the butter to melt/boil before adding the soaked bread) 🔥

Keep flipping the slice of bread from side to side until you’re happy with how it looks. I flipped it four times (once per minute).

Serve with some strawberries and a piece of Lidl’s finest crispy white chocolate (if you’re me). 🍓 🍫

*** You could also add Chocolate Sauce if you want to give yourself even more of a sugar rush and tempt fate of the diabetic variety.

I’ve just stumbled on a way to make a more adult cereal using a childhood fave… Valentine’s Day is all about chocolates and flowers, right? So, why not get some Coco Pops into your system?

What you’ll need:

A bowl and a spoon (optional 😂)

Kelloggs’ Coco Pops

Alpro Chocolate Soya Milk

Shot of Baileys (including bottle cap for measuring)

What to do:

Whether you’re the type to put the cereal before* or after the milk, do your thing! Mix it and drink it…

*Sane people in #Formation

What does it taste like?

IncrEDIBLE!

Remember, though, that Coco Pops has as much sugar content as a can of coke (35g), so don’t have too much of it… Sorry to poop on your party, it’s just facts… I can’t NOT tell you, can I? It wouldn’t sit right with me… I’m usually healthy, but Coco Pops is just to good to be without!

Tonight, I’m going to do this #NationalPizzaDay differently…

The video above shows you how to make heart shaped pizzas, because Valentine’s Day is coming up soon – and everyone loves a pizza, right? Yes, yes they do!

Enjoy this video… If you decide to make your own, using the recipe shown, please let me know what you thought and how you found it. Comment below either way, I love a “chinwag paddywag give a cat a stroke!”

What’s your favourite pizza? I’m talking chosen restaurant, flavour, topping, crust… The lot! For those of you who – for allergy reasons – can’t eat it, or are just simply not a fan – what do you perfer as a substitute? Get involved if you want to. I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Yorkshire Pudding Day, you absolute dream! You’re a “reight bobby dazzler” and a right “gud sooart”! #JustSayin’.

Anyway, in keeping with the theme of today‘s blogs, here is another sweet treat to try (not on the same day as the others or else you’ll be on a sugar high).

Traditionally, Yorkshire puddings are the best accompaniments to your Sunday roast and are usually considered savoury. Let’s be honest, Sunday roasts aren’t Sunday roasts without them… No Yorkshires means a Sunday roast is demoted to a Monday roast – which isn’t even a thing! #STANDARD #FACTS.

Anyway, I thought that ‘cos Yorkies are natural sweethearts, I’ll switch it up a bit and share a dessert pudding recipe instead – one that includes Apples and Blackberries (cc: BBC Good Food).

“What ingredients would I need?”

  • 25g butter
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 4 apples (Cox are perferred), peeled, cored and cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 eggs
  • 140g plain flour
  • 200ml full-fat milk
  • 150g blackberries
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil

“How would I go about making it?”

Start by preheating the oven to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9. Then, warm up the butter and 100g of the sugar in a frying pan, chuck in the apples and cook over a high heat for 3-4 mins (until slightly caramelised and starting to soften). Then, set them aside to cool.

In an empty (and clean) bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy, then add rest of the sugar, the two eggs, the flour and the milk, whisking until well combined. Gently begin to and fold the apples and the blackberries into the batter.

Place a 6-hole non-stick Yorkshire pudding tin over a high heat and spray some vegetable oil into each hole.

Spoon a large ladleful of batter into each hole, making sure all fruits are included.

Put the tin in the oven and leave for 15 mins, without opening the door. You’re looking to see if they’ve risen and are a golden tone (before taking them out).

Finally, remove them from oven and carefully place each pudding onto a plate.

Serve immediately with custard, vanilla ice cream, clotted cream etc.
