A muffuletta is a sandwich made and encased in a hollowed out loaf of bread with the top cut off to make the filling. This is an ideal brunch option but is also wonderful for school or work lunchboxes or a summer picnic. You can be as innovative as you like with the filling, using up whatever bits and pieces you have in your fridge.
Biscotti are Italian twice-baked biscuits. They are quite dry and crispy and are a perfect accompaniment to dunk into coffee, crème brulées, mousses or pannacottas. Again these make a very tasty edible Christmas gift and look very attractive packaged in a jar tied with ribbon.
Sometimes you are just looking for something a little extra special for a quick midweek meal. Take note if you are planning on getting a little amorous after supper, with six cloves of garlic, this is definitely not the dish for you!
This gives a real wow factor, so why not give it a try if you really want to impress your date? Take your time making and assembling it – it is well worth the effort.
Quesadillas are simply browned tortilla wraps with cheese and a selection of your favourite ingredients. In these quesadillas, I added some Ballymaloe Jalapeño Pepper Country Relish which gives them a real kick!
This is a delicious brown wholemeal yeast loaf that is fairly easy to make and better than any bread you will buy in the shops. I use cup measures as much as possible there are much easier than scales. For those who don't have cup measure, there are approximately 100g or 4oz of Flour in a cup. Odlums don't supply Strong Wholemeal Flour anymore, you will have to make the trip to the health food shops to source.
This is a simple recipe but it turns out to be absolutely scrumptous!
