And so it begins

Now that NTodd has called me out, I'm putting on my game face, bringing it like it aint never been brung, giving it 110% and so on. This is going to be my first entry in the giant Cook-Off that will determine which one of us blogweenies wins the hand of the lovely Caroline.

FAGGOTS 'N PEAS




1 lb pig's liver
2 medium onions
4 oz fat pork
Pinch of thyme
1/2 tsp powdered sage
Pinch of basil
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper
1 egg
Breadcrumbs
Pig's caul (optional)

Slice the liver, onions and pork thinly.
Put in a saucepan with all seasonings and barely cover with water.
Simmer for 1/2 hour, then strain off the liquid and save for gravy.
Mince the contents of the saucepan finely.

Add the beaten egg and sufficient breadcrumbs to make into a fairly firm mixture, and mix thoroughly. Form into balls (and enclose each one in a piece of caul - if desired.)

Place in a baking tin and add a little gravy.

Bake at 400* until nicely browned - about 30 minutes. Serve with gravy.

If preferred, the mixture can be pressed into a well greased baking tin and marked into squares.


Stolen shamelessly from here.

Okay NTodd. You been served. It's your turn to step up, bring it, do the flippity-floppity, throw down, etc.

Mom: [Yelling upstairs] KIDS!!! DINNER TIME!!

Kids: [running downstairs] What's for dinner?

Mom: Faggots and peas.

Kids: WTF?

Mom: No, really. They're made out of liver, and they look like gravy saturated turds. Dig in!!

Kids: uhh...we're not hungry. Why don't you wrap it up for that potluck dinner at the Roberts' house tomorrow? Mrs. Roberts likes faggots.

Mom: Oh come on!! Remember how you complained about the Spotted Dick? And the bangers and mash? Well, this is just more of that good ol' cooking from England.

Kids: [puking].

FIN

Um.. I wouldn't be too surprised if Caroline decided to go to KFC with me. Not that I want her hand, or anything, but that meal... ummmm..

Hey TKK - How interesting:)

Oh, by the way, shpx.ohfu's comment had me rolling on the floor!

Wheeeeeeeeeellllllll, I was thinking of making some ramen noodles, but maybe some Stroganoff ala NTodd would be appropriate.
