Slow-cooked Meaty Chilli

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Hearty food like this meaty chilli makes me very happy inside; it’s full of great spices and filling ingredients, and best of all it feeds a crowd. Using finely chopped meat here rather than mince gives a really interesting texture to the chilli.

Rabbit was a great food for country people for many years.

Dad’s Braised Oxtail

From: Kevin Dundon's Christmas Made Easy

Any time you ask my dad about food he always brings up oxtail. I’m fairly sure it would be his dessert island dish. When he tried out this recipe, he told me it was "bloody great!" so I think it got his seal of approval! If you haven’t cooked oxtail before the aim is to cook them until the meat just falls off the bone. I serve mine sitting proudly on top of some creamy colcannon mash.

Brioche French Toast with Berries and Nutella

This is definitely not an everyday breakfast, but for special occasions it makes a wonderful celebration breakfast, perfect for Christmas morning.

Cook the mackerel under the hot grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or place in a fish basket and cook on the barbecue for the same amount of time.

Beef in Black Bean Sauce

This is a classic Chinese dish, but I like to add lots of fresh ingredients to make this even more of a meal.

Beer Batter Fish with Pea Mash and Rosti Potato Cakes

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

This has to be one of my absolute favourite dinners. It's basically fish and chips, but with a great twist, using crispy rosti potato cakes instead of the more laborious chip. I shallow fry my goujons rather than using a deep fat fryer, with oil I keep in a bottle specifically for this purpose. When you're done and the oil is cold, just fill the bottle up to use again next time.

Asian, French and Herb Dressings

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Incredibly easy, giving maximum taste, these will have you wondering why you didn't make your own salad dressing before.

Honey Roast Smoked Salmon with Crispy Potato Cakes and Asparagus Curls

From: Kitchen Hero: Donal's Irish Feast

This is my version of Eggs Benedict which is a poached egg served on a crispy potato cake that gets baked in the oven slice of brioche and a warm butter sauce, which is much lighter than Hollandaise. It is also fantastic served with slices of hand carved cooked ham or crispy bacon.

Honey and Cardamom Roast Carrot and Parsnips

Even the veggie averse may think again...
