In honour of St David’s day on Saturday, and this week being Wales Tourism Week 2014, we are celebrating all things Welsh with a week full of Wales-inspired blog posts. We thought that we’d start off by tickling the taste buds and featuring some Welsh recipes; Wales has inspired many a tasty dish of food from Welsh Cakes and Bira Brith to Cawl and Welsh rarebit and today we’re sharing a few of our favourites!
- 225g Breadcrumbs
- 125g grated cheese
- Three medium eggs beaten
- Salt & pepper
- ¼ Tablespoon of dry mustard
- 175g Shredded leek that has been sautéed in butter
- A heaped tablespoon of chopped parsley
- 100g Breadcrumbs
- 1 Medium egg
- 4 Tablespoons of milk
- Vegetable oil
- Put the breadcrumbs, cheese seasoning, leeks, mustard and parsley into a bowl and mix well. Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and mix together to form a firm dough, if the mixture gets dry then add a little bit of milk.
- Divide the dough into 16 and make each portion into a sausage shape.
- For the coating
- Beat the egg and the milk together then place the breadcrumbs on a plate and season. Take one sausage at a time and coat it in the egg mixture then roll it in the breadcrumbs. Leave the sausages to chill for half an hour.
- To cook
- Heat a little oil in a frying pan then add a few sausages at a time. Cook over a medium heat until golden all over. Ensure that the heat is not too high as the sausages may burn and won’t be cooked through.
- 225g Self raising flour
- 50g Plain flour
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking powder
- ¼ Tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda
- ½ Tablespoon of salt
- ½ Tablespoon of mustard powder
- 50g Strong grated cheese
- 50g Strong cubed cheese
- 6 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 150g of Greek yogurt
- 125ml of Milk
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- Pre-heat the oven to 200C (Gas mark 6)
- Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, then in a separate bowl mix together the cheese and wet ingredients.
- Once mixed, combine both sets of ingredients together and divide between 12 muffin cases.
- Cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden before removing and cooling slightly.
- Tuck in and enjoy!
