Cheesy stuffed pancakes Recipe



350g mascarpone
½ small bunch of chives, finely chopped, plus extra to serve
150g gruyère, comté or other hard cheese, including vegetarian alternatives, grated
8 shop-bought unsweetened pancakes (or find a recipe here on bbcgoodfood.com)
350g leftover cooked ham or smoked salmon (optional)


Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Heat the mascarpone in the microwave for 1-2 mins, or until loosened. Stir in the chives and half of the grated hard cheese, then season generously with black pepper and a good pinch of salt. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Spread the mascarpone mixture over half of each of the pancakes, then top with the ham, if using (or if using salmon, top the pancakes with it just before serving instead). Fold the pancakes in half, then in half again to create a triangle shape and transfer to the baking sheet. Sprinkle over the remaining grated cheese and bake for 15 mins, or until golden and bubbling. Sprinkle over some chives to serve.

Chicken katsu curry burger

In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the brine with 1 tsp salt. Put the chicken in the brine, cover with cling film and marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hrs.

To make the mayo, combine all the ingredients and stir until smooth.

Half an hour before cooking, remove the chicken from the fridge. Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk with 2 tbsp of the brine. Mix the rice flour and panko, and spread out in a layer on a plate. Remove one chicken breast from the brine, shake off the excess, dip into the egg mix, then coat in the panko mix. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the other chicken breast.

Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or large, heavy-bottomed saucepan until it reaches 180C, or a piece of bread browns in 30 secs. Fry for 10-12 mins until cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper, then slice each breast into 4-5 pieces.

Split and toast the buns, then spread with the mayo. Add a layer of lettuce, spring onions and radishes, then top with the chicken and more mayo.

Chicken & almond pastillas

Heat 1 tbsp butter in a large casserole dish, add the onion, ginger and garlic, and cook for 5 mins until soft. Add the cinnamon, the cardamom seeds and the turmeric. Stir around the pan for 30 secs until aromatic, then add the chicken and flour. Stir to coat the chicken pieces, then add the chicken stock and season. Stir, cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 45 mins. Remove the lid from the pan and lift the chicken pieces onto a plate. Add the honey and almonds to the cooking liquid and turn up the heat. Bubble the liquid until thick and reduced by about half. Meanwhile, finely shred the chicken with 2 forks. Return the chicken to the sauce and stir in the orange zest, apricots, flaked almonds and parsley – the mixture should be quite thick. Leave to cool. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Unwrap the pastry, keeping any you’re not working with under a damp tea towel, so it doesn’t dry out. Taking one piece at a time, brush all over with the melted butter, and around the edges with the beaten egg. Put roughly a sixth of the chicken filling in the top right-hand corner in a triangular shape. Fold the opposite side of the pastry over to cover the filling. Keep flipping the encased filing down the pastry, brushing between the layers with butter as you go, to give you a triangular parcel, like a large samosa. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling until you have 6 pastillas. Put the pastillas on a baking tray and brush the tops with egg. Bake for 25 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden. For an authentic finish, mix together the remaining cinnamon and icing sugar, and dust the pastillas just before serving.

Baked buffalo chicken wings

In a large bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, cider vinegar, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, hot sauce, honey and a couple of cracks of black pepper. Add the chicken wings and toss around to make sure they’re fully covered in the marinade. If you have time, leave the wings to marinate for a couple of hrs in the fridge or ideally overnight. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Drain and reserve the marinade, then spread the wings out on a very large baking tray. Bake for 30 mins, then pour off the excess oil, add the reserved marinade and toss well. Increase oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Return to the oven and cook for a further 30 mins, tossing a few times to coat in the glaze as they cook. They should be sticky and glazed with most of the marinade evaporated. Serve on a large platter alongside other party snacks.
