This Paula Dean version of Elvis’ favorite meatloaf makes for a light and cheesy alternative to tomato based classics.  Paula’s recipe called for a condensed soup based sauce, but I decided to go old school and build it from scratch sans salt.

National Egg Salad Week – Scotch Eggs

National Egg Salad Week – Scotch Eggs

Welcome to a week-long celebration of all things egg… peel back the shells and enjoy some new ways to have an egg-cellent meal.

Monday – Dessert First – Cadbury Deviled Eggs
Tuesday – Devilish Dishes – Inside Out Deviled Eggs
Wednesday – Entrée Entries – Scotch Eggs
Thursday – Global Ovals – Bauernsalat
Friday – Tour d’ America – Pittsburgh Maurice Salad

Finished Scotch Eggs

Blanket your Easter eggs in the sausage of your choice.

British street food makes for a great mid-week grab and go option that can feature other DIY food projects.  I used my own mild Italian sausage mix and bread crumbs from leftover whole wheat Easter dinner rolls.  If you use a commercial sausage they will have a higher fat content, more shrinkage away from the egg and look like the original recipe at Scotland’s Enchanted Kingdom. To create a scotch egg that is not made of grey mystery meat may go against tradition (Consider the Scotch Egg) but makes for a tastier nosh.

This recipe is a rif on the Egg Baked Potato recipe posted at The Daily Spud. The original recipe used the outside portion of a twice baked potato to cook an egg.  Here the author used the white of an egg to present a potato salad.  My modification is to add back in the egg yolk and use an aged New York Cheddar rather than an Irish style cheese.

30 March 2011 Dinner News – Cricket World Cup

India Wins The Match
Both Countries Come Out Winners

Homemade Chicken Shawarma

Pakistan and India played each other in the Cricket World Cup with India winning the match, but both countries coming out winners as relations between the counties appear to be thawing.

Adapted from Chicken Shawarma at Food.com. See the  28 March Dinner News – Pakistan & India post for side dish and dessert suggestions to accompany this grab and go meal.

Tahini

Make the Tahini

Making tahini isn’t as straight forward as you would think.  Just trying to grind up sesame seeds leaves you with more husk than paste.  This recipe is for a saucy version and not a “store for later” stiffer mix.

Snacking Saturday – Meat & Potato Libyan Style

Mubatan Batata

Final Product

Dinner for 2 and leftover filling

Saturday is always the “on-the-go” day in our house.  Left to the “last minute” monster it would be leftovers or fast food.  We found Mb’atten to be easy to make, tasty after reheating and very very filling.

This recipe puts some quantities behind the description given on the Temehu page for Libyan Food and slightly a different mix than the Mubatan Batata post over at visually stunning blog Libyan Food… not to mention the “growth potential” I have in photography :-)!

This recipe will provide a hearty dinner for 2 or a hearty addition to a picnic for 4 with 2 serving options:

Finger Food – Stop with just the potatoes for a sporting-event-watching food.

Bathed in Tomato Sauce – Easy to reheat later and placed in tin foil could also be taken to a picnic and heated on the grill.

If you are a more visual person complete step by step can be found in my Mubatan Batata set on Flickr.

Meal suggestions to accompany this dish can be found in the post on the Dinner News of Southern Libya.

Ingredients

Collage of Ingredients

8 small potatoes
Oil of choice for stove top pan frying.
