The Gammonbert

Cold cuts and cheese, the two things you’re most likely to have floating around in the fridge a few days after Christmas. Yes, you’ve gotten through an entire wheel of stilton as a family, and all the remaining turkey has found it’s way into sandwiches and omelettes, but if your lot are anything like mine, there’s still plenty of ham and no ones touched some of the cheeses – I’m not sure how long camembert would last in our fridge realistically but I’m painting a picture here, so work with me. We’ll call this a “deconstructed grilled cheese” because sometimes it’s nice to use the wanky words and phrases that make you despise the human race as a whole, and really that kind of is what it is. A ham, pickle and mustard fried sandwich dipped in oozy, melty camembert. Bookmark this one for around about December 28th, my friends. The idea for this sandwich started in ALDI, when I picked up a camembert for no particular reason at all. I do this a lot, and …

The Cab

If somebody very important to you is more than fond of gammon and loves coleslaw (sometimes a little too much), it’s arguably your civic duty to build a sandwich containing the two and name it after them.  It’s only very recently that I’ve started eating and cooking with meat regularly again. I’ve been torn on whether or not I wanted that to be reflected on the blog because, at heart, I’m pretty sure I’m not much of a carnivore. Come January I’ll be full steam ahead with Veganuary and feeling all the pangs of guilt that I ever ate meat again at all. But, this is who I am, I change my mind about my fundamentals constantly, much to the dismay of those closest to me – I can be an incredibly difficult girl to keep up with. Since I am eating meat again, I might as well share that with you until I stop, but I want to go about it in what I see as a more responsible way, promoting only brands like …

BBQ Sweet Potato Grilled Cheese

Last year, I celebrated the onslaught of autumn by publishing a grilled cheese recipe (grilled blue cheese on rye with autumn slaw), and I think I’ve just decided that I would like for that to be an annual tradition. In actual fact, last years was published in late August – but if I remember correctly, it had already started to get cold and rainy by that time and the general consensus was that autumn had come early. Either that or it was pure wishful thinking on my part because autumn is the best of all the seasons and I want it to last as long as possible. This years grilled cheese recipe started in the making when I saw (somewhere on the internet, I don’t remember where) boiled and pulled apart carrots cooked in BBQ sauce being served as a substitute for pulled pork. Whilst I’m on kind of a weird and inexplicable meat kick right now, I was a vegetarian for years before that, so it resonated with me and I filed it in …
