New Recipes for the Weekend

Leave a comment

I tried two new recipes over the weekend.
First was a roast potato recipe that turned out fairly tasty and secondly a dessert that was really nice. I’d make both of them again.

Mustard Roasted Potatoes
Serves 4

3 medium-large baking potatoes
3 Tbsp yellow mustard
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 220C. Wash and scrub potatoes. Dry well, and cup
potatoes lengthwise into halves.
Combine the mustard, oil and cheese in a large bowl; whisk to blend.
Add the potatoes and turn to coat. Spray a roasting pan with non-stick cooking
spray. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on prepared pan. Grind
pepper over the potatoes. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until browned
and tender.

Orange Dessert Squares
(Really just Orange Cake with Orange Sauce)
Serves 16

2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, separated
2 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup milk
4 teaspoons grated orange rind

Orange Sauce:
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornflour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
4 teaspoons grated orange rind
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
(I added some lemon juice too, I wanted more of a tang to my sauce)

In a medium bowl beat sugar, butter, and egg yolks at medium
speed until light and fluffy; add flour alternate with milk
at low speed, beginning and ending with flour.
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry; fold egg whites
and orange rind into batter; pour into greased 22x25cm
baking pan. Bake at 190 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until
golden brown. Cool, cut into squares and serve with orange sauce.

In small saucepan mix together sugar, cornflour, and salt;
pour boiling water over mixture, stirring constantly. Cook
over moderate heat until mixture boils and thickens.
Add butter, orange rind, and juice.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
