When it comes to cooking, I’m terrible. When it comes to lunch ideas, I’m even worse. I never know what to make. But I’m great at following recipes. You see, following a recipe give me the opportunity to create something amazing and impressive, without having to wreck my brain too much. I rely heavily on recipes and inspiration. Thanks to Sasko, I’m able to share these two impressive yet easy brunch ideas and the recipes for them. Now you too can create something impressive and tastey, without too much hassle.
So I’ll get right into it then.
Two impressive yet easy brunch ideas and the recipes
- 1 packet SASKO Quick Treats Flapjack Mix
- 30ml Vegetable oil
- 550ml Milk
- 2 Extra-large eggs
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 250g Mascarpone cheese
- 400g Strawberries (washed and halved)
- Handful of fresh mint
- 40 Toothpicks
- 125ml Honey
- Mix the flapjack batter as per the instructions on the Quick Treats Flapjack Mix packet.
- Pour a little oil into a non-stick frying pan and, once hot, use a teaspoon to pour in small
- Turn half way through the frying process and fry until golden brown.
- Repeat until the batter is finished (makes approximately 100-120 mini flapjacks.)
- Allow to cool before assembling: spread a little mascarpone onto 2/3 of the total number of flapjacks and layer them in threes with the bottom 2 flapjacks covered in mascarpone and the top one without, then top each stack with half a strawberry and a mint leaf and skewer with a toothpick.
- Just before serving drizzle the homey over the flapjacks.
Miniature Spicy Patties
These are great little patties that you can use to make sliders (mini burgers), have with an array of salads and dips or with wraps.
Ingredients: (makes 12 patties)
- 2 slices Sasko Low GI White Bread
- 150ml Milk
- 500g Ostrich/lamb/beef mince
- 1 Onion (chopped)
- ½ tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Pepper
- 2 tsp Coriander powder
- 2 tsp Cumin powder
- 1 tsp Chilli (optional)
Your choice of salads, spreads such as hummus and tsatziki, chutney, rolls and wraps
Soak the 2 slices of bread in the milk for 10 minutes then squeeze out the excess liquid and place the bread into a food processor with the rest of the ingredients and blitz until well combined.
Wet your hands and shape the mince mixture into 12 evenly-sized patties.
Place a non-stick frying pan on medium heat and drizzle in a little olive oil.
Once hot, fry the patties in batches, turning every 2 minutes, for approximately 8 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
