Weird Food Combinations that Work...maybe. (We've moved on from Hot Cross Buns)

No, but that’s because the Cream Egg is the wrong sort of thing to try and add, you’re taking an item that is already going to feel very fatty on the mouth and adding a shed load more fat (plus a ton of sugar). It would destroy the balance.

What might work is maybe changing some of the standard acidic components (gherkins, mustard, ketchup, tomato, onion) for something that also brings that level of acidity. It’s partly why people started adding pineapple to burgers and gammon, although imho they are generally too invasive a flavour. Get too much balance and you start to destroy the umami flavours that really make the dish sing.

I’ve moved onto scones


#1086

And rightly so. :+1:


#1087

Cheese, fruit or plain?


#1088

Fruit

anchovy scones? I have a very nice recipe (Gary Rhodes, I think) for a beef stew topped off with anchovy scones


#1090

Until I get bored with jam and clotted cream,I think I’ll give it a miss


#1091

Hmmm… I have some nice stewing beef and a slew of smoked oysters that I plan to en-pudding soon - some anchovies in the suet crust would be killah, innit?

Must be said we do bloody well for good butchers in this area. People around here still appreciate a nice hunk of Meat - and the bready, yeasty, fruity, spicy baked goods to accompany it with… :wink:


#1092

Feckin’ bun trolls and baked goods abusers everywhere. Decadence foreshadowing the end-times delivered by the tiny orange fingers of doom, no doubt.

Not sure about it combining well with the oysters, but beef + prunes in a stew is a winning combination.


#1094

Beef and oyster pudding is very much a traditional British recipe - there’s a (crap) version in Mrs Beeton’s. I usually make a stout or porter based gravy - the flavours hang together an absolute treat :+1:


#1095

There is a delicacy in Scotland that still makes me all unnecessary just at the memory of it as I loved it so much…fruity pudding.

Bet this tasted similar… I might go up to Ayrshire tomorrow, have some then come back.


#1096

we’ll be cooking the beef stew in red wine with anchovy scones on Sunday.


#1097

Had that - Kenny Kerr usually brings some when he visits - fucking lush with a fryup :+1:

See you Sunday then :+1:


#1098

I think scones should be the next thing. :+1:


#1099

They will be until some cunt puts marmite on one


#1100

That’s betterer.


#1101

You called?

I have much better stuff than marmite for scones


#1102

Hot cross bun and haggis ?

How about Haggis Scones.

Now these curry spiced scones are delicious

Who’d have thought it, Haggis Scones are a thing
