Day 841 – #33 Try 50 new recipes

 

For Christmas Mark bought me the new Hairy Biker’s cook book “Meat Feasts”.  It’s brilliant.  There’s loads and loads of recipes I want to try out, most of which will fall in line with primal/paleo principles.  So all good.
The first recipe Mark wanted me to make was the Lancashire Sausage Hotpot.  This was (unsurprisingly) made with sausages instead of the usual lamb.  They put black pudding in theirs but as I don’t like it, I just used more sausages.  I used the Morrisons gluten-free herby sausages and they were lovely.  Really tasty.  I didn’t use as much potato as they said either – it was loads!  I think maybe because I used a mandolin to cut them I ended up with hundreds of slices, whereas if I’d cut them by hand they’d have been thicker so I wouldn’t have had so many.  It ended up being 700g instead of 1kg.  So quite a difference.  Anyway, here are the before and after photos:

Can’t wait to try the next one….
