Re: Whats For Supper?

Salmon with parsley sauce (the most decadent recipe I've come across - 8oz butter, half a bulb of garlic, large bunch flat leaf parsley and olive oil.  Put everything except the oil in a food processor and blitz until combined, then add just enough olive oil to slacken the mixture.  Apparently this might keep in the fridge for as long as two weeks ... lol  ) and steamed asparagus.

Re: Whats For Supper?

I have a decadent recipe that I use for "hot butter chicken". Wonderful but not too often.

Re: Whats For Supper?

I was going to make French bread pizzas this evening then I remembered that a friend had brought some frozen English muffins around last week as he had no room in his freezer. He suggested at the time that sliced in half they would make reasonable pizza bases. Has anyone tried these?

The topping will be "Porton Down" sauce, finely chopped onions and garlic, sliced fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperoni. Maybe a sliced chili or two.

I prefer a very thin and crispy crust, so no, half an English muffin would be way too thick for me. Each to their own, though smile.

Re: Whats For Supper?

English muffin pizzas can be very tasty or very dire depending on how they are made.

My In-laws used to make them when I first started dating my wife and they were the later sort.  topped with a small smear of bottled ragu sauce, browned ( more grey from using too small a pan) minced beef, thickly sliced onion pieces( that didn't really cook so you were biting into big pieces of raw onion)  bit of mozz and a shake of green can kraft parm. *shudder*   the muffin ended up soggy and the rest was just not a good combo.

I would suggest toasting them slightly before topping, using some nice ingredients and they will be a tasty meal.   Pita bread especially the thin kind is  also perfect for fast pizza base. When I was single I would keep it on  hand with a selection of nice toppings for fast meals when I didn't want to cook after  10 -12 hrs at work.

pita on a sheet pan,  fresh tom or  passata, nice mozz, a couple ripped slices of  prosciutto or dry cured salami, sliced mushrooms   maybe some olives and finely sliced onion. good to go.  yummy

When I started reading that I thought "great".

Then I continued to read.......... puke

I'll still give it a go - I can always bin it and have chicken fried rice from down the road.
