Melange Of Food Offerings...








The last few days have gotten me back into cooking a bit more than I have felt like in a while! I mix of this and that, no theme, no long range mission- just food to take here and there, or to eat at home.. In no particular order, a green bean/bean sprout/ham/mushroom/bamboo shoots creation we had as a main dish! Flavored with soy sauce, it hit the spot! Scotch Eggs... Took as a treat to friends that had never heard of such a thing- all disappeared.. Marinated steak on grill, Au Gratin potatoes, homemade white bread were the main meal today! No theme or message today, beyond enjoy your food- life is short!

where's my tray, I feel like I am at a buffet and I think I will take 2 of each please....the potatoes look really good but since I have never had a scotch egg (heard of em') I am most eager about them....

DogB- Hard boil some eggs, pack them like a snowball in your favorite sausage, bake at 350 for 20 minutes, turn the critters over, and bake another 20 minutes.. Chill before cutting in half(or quarters!) a little hot sauce, and appetizer is ready! Eats well hot or cold.. Sauces only limited to your imagination.. and I know your imagination will come up with something new here!

That's a feast fit for a king!

I love scotch eggs. We do a mini bite size version where you chop the hard boiled eggs - great for picnics!

Jen said...

It all looks delicious and those eggs are fancy! Are you sure you don't want to open up your own restaurant?

MarmiteToasty said...

pinknest said...

Ake- These things are a hit werever I bring them! Deer camp loves them!
Jen- I am thinking along those lines, dear!
Marmy- I will come up with a beef version just because you are that special to me..
g-man- That bread recipe wasn't the worst.. You want it- E-mail me!
Darn Girl- Whatever you want that helps, is yours to command..For Real!

TavoLini said...

Everything looks good--I've never had a Scotch egg--my interest is piqued!

Leighann said...

Everytime I come here, I drool.... Hope you don't mind!

Sornie said...

Seriously, open a restaurant. With offering like these, it would be a huge hit!

buffalodick said...

T-lini- They are simple and always disappear when you bring them anywhere! You can actually make them into a deviled egg, with a casing of sausage- those are over the top!
Leighann- You are always welcome, drool and all.. :)
sornie- I have kind of a plan when the economy starts to turn... Thanks!

Bina said...

The Au Gratin Potatoes, steak and homemade bread got me. That sounds so freaking good!!!!!

I don't know what I like more, the smell of homemade bread, or the actual eating of it while it's still warm.

Okay, the eating part.

Beth said...

me too Bean!!!!

Big Beaver...how you doin? I'm worried about you. are you ok?

buffalodick said...

Beth- never worry about the Buff, worry more about things that matter!

Vodka Mom said...

I should NOT visit your site after school. I am starving. I make a mean deviled egg- always take them to parties. Now get your ass over to my house and make me something good.

Maddy said...

Fabulous! Scotch eggs are one of my all time favourites. You can buy them in the shops at home but I've never seen them for sale here so I have to make my own. That said, homemade is always better than shop bought.
Best wishes

MarmiteToasty said...

Did I say that our scotch eggs are rolled in breadcrumbs and usually deep fried.....

buffalodick said...

Vodka M- You make the Martinis, I'll make whores' ovaries.. oops! Hors'devores- didn't spell that right either, I bet... appetizers! Snacks, as it were... :) Always in the fight, always losin'- The Buff

buffalodick said...

maddy- Never, ever saw them for sale- got to make your own on this side of the pond! Sure are a great treat to eat!
mARMY- Asolutely the traditional way to make them, but our doctors had them outlawed from the increase in heart attacks... :0

MarmiteToasty said...

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Goob brought me some of the Au Gratin Potatoes but must have forgotten the Scotch Egg. You can send one of those along with her next time.

buffalodick said...

Marmy- They deep fry a lot of food in Scotland, don't they?

Beth said...

Lulda Casadaga said...

Jeff B said...

Autumn just seems to bring out the wanting to create in the kitchen doesn't it?

It's supposed to start raining by the weekend around here. I think some French Onion soup is on order.

Urban Vegan said...

Homemade bread....nothing like it when there's a chill in the air.
