Stuffing.jpg

The stuffing recipe from the Aldi booklet, I'm fairly sure we will have this one with our xmas lunch, as I said earlier we will need to scale down as this year there is just the 2 of us, will have a trial run first though.

Re: Christmas recipies

I am a bah humbug , Christmas Lunch for me is quite plain , i dislike an overwhelming amalgam of herbs , spices and such.

Plain veggies , pan juices , veg water and cornflour for thickening the gravy , a drop of soy for colour.

We like the Waitrose apricot sausage stuffing as the only spicy addition. Oh and cranberry jelly.

Re: Christmas recipies

My lot love sprouts done like this.
Roughly chop up sprouts . Fry some nice dry cured Bacon ( not the horrible wet stuff that's passed off as Bacon ) until it's nice and crispy remove bacon from pan and put to one side. Peel and chop a couple of cloves of Garlic. Zest and juice a nice big lemon.
Put chopped sprouts into the bacon fat ( add some butter if you haven't got a lot of fat from bacon ) along with the garlic and the lemon zest, and stir fry as sprouts are starting to wilt add lemon juice and put lid on pan for a couple of minutes, just let the steam cook the sprouts a bit more.
Crumble up the crispy Bacon and stir into the sprouts, then serve up straight away. This can be cooked in 7 or 8 minute just before you are ready to dish out your meal.

Re: Christmas recipies

Thanks guys for your replies.
Definitely will be trying the red cabbage and sprouts recipies, this is the kind of thing I was after.
Stuffing sounds lovely Martin and seems pretty simple even for me.
Sorry Kibris, I hate Parmesan.

Keep them coming, if they don't interest me they may be of use to someone else :-)

Cheers
Sue

Re: Christmas recipies

If you are doing yorkshire puddings and like them large approx. 5" high, I found a foolproof recipe on the net, well it works for me every time, 2 eggs (put in measuring jug and beat), add double quantity of milk, i.e. if eggs measure 100 ml add 200ml of milk, beat, add 2.1/2" ounces plain flour, beat, salt & pepper to taste, cook on Gas 8 for 20mins.

Re: Christmas recipies

There are some great tips in the Aldi "Favourite Things" brochure, yes Martin I am going with the stuffing recipe and the Sprouts with Stilton.

I do my own roast parsnips, par boil for literally a couple of minutes and cut them into wedges, roll them in beaten egg and breadcrumbs ( I do a few just in milk for me), cover them in parmesan (grated) put them on a baking tray in hot oil and cook for 25 mins, always work out good and crispy.

Re: Christmas recipies

S.S. How hot do you need with oven to be when cooking those parsnips - quite hot I would think ? Thanks.

Yes Hilary I start the oven at 200c I put the Roast Potatoes in and, around 15 mins after I turn down to 190 as a fan oven, then in go the parsnips. They are moreish. I put plenty of Parmesan on and it goes crunchy.

Re: Christmas recipies

Once again this year, I’ve had many requests for my Old Russian Grandmother's Secret Recipe for Vodka Christmas Cake .
So here goes.
Please keep in your files or share to your friends as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year..! (Made mine this morning..!!!!)
1 cup sugar, half pound butter, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 cup water, 1 tsp. salt , 1 cup brown sugar, Lemon juice, 4 large eggs, Nuts, 1/2....bottle(s) of strong Vodka, 2 cups dried fruit, 4 cups self raising flour.
Sample a cup of Vodka to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Vodka again to be sure it is of the highest quality then Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it is best to make shhhure the Wodka is still OK. Try anither cup jussssshhhht in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowlING, like that. Thennnnnnn and only after a ship off widka, chuck in the dup of cried fruit. Wink some more of the Vodka just for the Hell of it. Pick the fruit up off the floor, wash it and put it in the bowl a piece from beteeen the fingertips at a time trying to count it very very carefull. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the Vodka to test for tonsisticitity. Noxt, sift 2 cups of silt, or something. Check the Vodka. Now shift the lemon juice though the shifter and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Pick the cocker to gusset mark high and slim the door. Leave the cock to cack and furnish the vodgamacallit
Finally, throw the bowl through the widow
Finish of lott's weft of the Widka and work the wipetop with the cat.
Bon appetit!
