Baking day
« on: December 11, 2012, 06:28:09 pm »
Didnt feel like doing anything too physical today as we had a busy time yesterday and I had to get up early for my friend who was coming round to do our hair. Decided instead to make some bread and some rolls. Once they were done, OH asked for some Chelsea Buns, so I did a different version, instead of dried fruit, I put apple sultanas brown sugar and cinnamon. When I took the brioche mix out of the breadmaker, there was rather a lot so I cut a piece off, mixed sultanas, chopped almonds and glacé cherries in it, then I made it into a plait. It looks like they both came out of the oven okay but the proof will be in the eating. Im going to freeze most of them as soon as they are cool as they can go dry if left after a day or two. Next, Im going to make my mince pies and I'd like to try some deep fill ones without them sticking to the bun tin!

I made my version of piggy pies this afternoon, with sausage meat, thin lardons (smoked bacon bits)onion and apple. Even though OH is off his food at the moment, he managed to eat 3 so I assume that they taste okay!!

Thanks, FF, they sound great.  Now, where do I get GOS sausages?

Mary if your OH can eat three when he's off his food, how many could he eat if he was hungry?

They were only small MGM, bun tin sized, though had he been well he would have had about 5!!! He's always had a very good appetite, thats why I get worried when he is off his food. He couldnt even drink coffee today, as he had a very bad night last night, coughing. He really needs to be in hospital, but he wont go in until after Christmas as per the last few years. At least he has oxygen at home, so he's quite comfortable once he's in his chair infront of the telly!!

Why are some men so stubborn about their health?  They seem to fall into two camps.  The 'I sneezed.  It must be pneumonia' and the 'Just because my leg's hanging off doesn't mean to say I need a doctor'.  My OH is in the second camp like yours, Mary.

Mandy..Ive just got to say a big thankyou for idea of the piggy pies as I call them. They are just so darned tasty with the rich butter pastry and the sausage meat with all the added bits. Ive still got a few left in the freezer, they do freeze so well, but I cant wait to make more. I even think that they will be lovely with french sausage meat which in the main, is just seasoned minced pork with no fillers. Its expensive but you dont need much for each pie if you add other ingredients do you?

Glad to help Mary and you enjoyed your pies, the recipe is a fairly old one from a 1997 Good Food magazine which i renamed to suit my breed of piggies. I'm all for experimenting with them. :yum:  and as i got 80kg worth of sausages back from the butchers at the weekend guess we're gonna be haing quite a few!

I am in the process of making some at the moment. As they sausages have been previously frozen I will cook the pies first and then maybe freeze some.
