    Crispy loaded potato skins with bacon, parmesan and garlic sour cream This is not just your standard potato skins recipe – the cornstarch mixture makes them extra crispy and the roasted garlic through the sour cream is a great way to avoid having to chop it in to annoyingly tiny pieces. You can obviously change up all the toppings too Method 👩‍🍳 1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees and put three potatoes, brushed with oil, in to roast for…

    Panko Vegetable Tempura with Katsu Curry Flat out on the veg after the Easter baking. These are oven baked with Panko breadcrumbs so they’re not as bad for you as the usual deep fried tempura. You can get Panko breadcrumbs in most supermarkets now handily enough. I used carrots, onions, parsnips, courgette and green beans as my veg but you could use almost anything you want. Method 🍷 1. Dice/ chop all your veg 2. Whisk your egg in a…

    Marinara Sauce I’d like to dedicate today’s recipe to Giorgio Chiellini Whether you’re using it on pizza or in pasta, marinara sauce from scratch is so simple but so good and there is literally no need to ever buy dolmio jars ever again. Most Italian cooking is heavily reliant on time, technique and the quality of the ingredients but it’s really not complicated at all to do the basics. If you truly want to honour the Italian football team, start…

    Easy 3 ingredient bagels Literally all you need here is a 2:1 ratio of self raising flour to Greek yogurt. So, you would use 200g of flour and 100g of yogurt. Add a pinch of salt and that’s all you need! Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl using your hand. The dough should form a ball that’s not too sticky to stick to your hand and not too dry to flake in to pieces. Roll the ball of…

    I made it 25 years without eating a sprout thanks to all the bad reviews. Can you all please calm down and stop boiling these horrifically victimised vegetables. Just roast them for gods sake. They are honestly unreal. Method 👩‍🍳 1. Chop off the root and slice each sprout down the middle 2. Drizzle with olive oil, a dash of salt and pepper and if you have duck fat I would fully recommend drizzling a bit of that on them…
