Today was my “must do” day! So many tasks/chores & errands, things of critical importance to be done! Book test/theory exam at school, done! Waxing appointment at the salon, done! Buy ticket to upcoming culinary event, a night with Heston Blumenthal Live!!! Wait…This means, that in May I will be in the very same room with none other, than Heston Blumenthal of The Fat Duck fame, 3 Michelin Star, self taught, genius chef!
I’ve already thought of a very special lead up to that week, it’ll take me a month at least (to work it out) but once we get closer to May, I’ll let you know ;)
For now let us be content with some Friday afternoon Meatball Mania! . It’s a throw together dish I literally threw together! It was cooking in the oven whilst I jumped in the shower (got ready for work) and 45 mins later, I had a wrap to go!!!
This is yet another brilliant idea from Jamie Oliver, inspired by his Polpette and spaghetti, where he squeezes the casings of good quality sausages together to make instant, melt in your mouth meatballs! Yummers!
Packet sausages, good quality
lemon cheeks to serve
Get your assorted veg into a pan, I’ve got garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots and cherry tomatoes. I picked some dried rosemary to go with my lamb sausages.
Snip the end of the casings and squeeze out the flesh, into little meaty ball sized pieces over those veg.
Bake in a very hot oven, 180-200C (approx 356 F or more)
Get the sides ready to go, greens, sauces, bread etc, check the pan after 45 mins,
Lay out on Pita wrap, sprinkle coriander and use a good squeeze of lemon!!! I really mush the baked garlic, veg and herbs with the meat. (So tasty) The Last Bite!
