Saving at home – Jacket potatoes (Great Britain – USA)

EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE

Hi everyone!

Today we move to Great Britain and the United States with these jacket potatoes or baked potatoes. A delicious dish of AngloSaxon cuisine, which became famous also in the American cuisine.

In history, the recipe of jacket potatoes reached the greatest success and the maximum spread in the twentieth century, when in several places in the world they were served with fillings that varied according to the culture and specialties of the place.

These potatoes have the characteristic of being cooked with their skin and in a aluminum foil, so it is as if they were covered with a real jacket (hence the name: potato jacket, or baked potato, in English).

They are among the most tasty side dishes and, even as an appetizer during a dinner with a typical English flavor, make their figure! Excellent especially for a meeting or a party with friends for the fact that they are to be considered a real treat. 

They are also perfect as a side dish during the barbecue.

Let’s start:

JACKET POTATOES (GREAT BRITAIN – USA)

Ingredients for 4 people:

Preparation:

To prepare the classic recipe you need 4 yellow potatoes, that is with soft pulp and basically sweet.

Always wash them with care, just because the peel is not removed; then close them in aluminum paper and bake them at 180° in the already hot oven. You can control the cooking with a toothpick and, when they are ready, you can proceed with the filling.

As mentioned, empty the potatoes while preserving the pulp to prepare a soft mixture to which you will add a pinch of salt and a generous grind of pepper, as well as 50 g of grated cheddar cheese.

In a pan, then, cook the bacon (50 g) or bresaola, so that they become crispy.

Fill again the empty potatoes with this mixture, add some pieces of butter and bacon or crispy bresaola.

Close the tuber in tin foil and bake for another 5 minutes. The result will be special: the cheese will melt together with the butter making it all streaky. 

The children will love it and even the adults will definitely appreciate their taste.

Enjoy your meal!

VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN – VEGAN

Hi everyone!

Do you like roasted chestnuts too? I love them!!!

Do you think they are difficult to do? Well, you are wrong. The only thing you will need to calculate is the soaking time in water.

Let’s start:

ROASTED CHESTNUTS

Ingredients for 4 people: 1 kg of chestnuts – frying pan for roasted chestnuts (with holes)

Preparation:

With a knife make a cut on the chestnuts (a cut of about 3 cm). This procedure is used to prevent the roasted chestnuts from bursting during cooking and to ensure that they remain soft inside.

Remove the ruined chestnuts.

Soak the chestnuts for about two hours.

Dry well and put them in the pan for chestnut roasting on the heat and cook until the outside is singed.

To avoid that they burn too much, sometimes lift the pan to avoid that they stay too close to the fire.

Your roasted chestnuts are ready!

Saving at home – Poached eggs

EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE

Hi everyone!

The recipe of poached egg could seem very easy to do, but in reality it is important to follow some tips for its success.

Practical and friends of our diet since they are cooked without oil or butter.

Let’s start:

POACHED EGGS

Ingredients for 4 people: eggs – about 3-4 tablespoons white wine vinegar (or apples) – salt and pepper

Preparation:

Take a large and large pot, fill it with water, add 3 – 4 tablespoons of vinegar and add salt, then put it on the fire; the temperature that the water must reach is about 90 – 95 degrees (just below the boil).

If the water starts to boil, take it immediately out the fire.

Shell the egg in a small bowl and wait for the water to reach the right temperature. As soon as the water is ready, begin to mix it with a wooden spoon creating a small “vortex“.

Pour the egg into the center of the vortex and with the wooden spoon continue to stir gently in a circular direction; doing so the egg yolk will be completely wrapped in egg white.

Keep stirring for a couple of minutes until the egg starts to float, so it will be ready.

Take it with a skimming ladle and serve warm.

For more eggs, it is best to cook them one at a time.

Sprinkle with a pinch of pepper.

Enjoy your meal!

Hi everyone!

You should definitely try to make these savory pancakes, ideal for an appetizer, which are prepared with only 3 ingredients: water, flour and baking powder!

Just put everything in a bowl, stir, let rise and finally fry. In a few steps you will make delicious golden pancakes, fragrant and also suitable for vegans!

Let’s start:

SAVOURY PANCAKES

Ingredients for 4 people: 500 g flour – 500 ml water – baking powder (3,5 g) – 1 teaspoon sugar – 1 teaspoon salt – oil for frying

Preparation:

In a large bowl put the flour, water, baking powder, salt and sugar and work with a whisk until you get a smooth and homogeneous batter.

Once the batter is ready, cover it with food film and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour (the oven at a minimum heat is fine).

After the leavening hour, heat abundant oil in a large pan; the ideal temperature that the oil must reach is about 170-180 degrees.

Take the batter in spoonfuls and pour it into the hot oil; this operation is easier with 2 tablespoons, one to take the batter and another to push it into oil.

Fry the pancakes until golden brown, turning them with a skimming ladle (about 3 – 4 minutes of cooking). Cook the pancakes, lay them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
