Yet another Simplish Meal, for Simple People like me, Simple Food, Simple Preparations and Simply Delicious.
- One small packet of cream
- 1 cup milk
- Pepper and salt to taste
- 4 slices of pancetta or substitute ( Proscuitto is not suitable for this dish)
- Bakers Potato, thinly slice
- Herbs like basil can be added
Firstly, drizzle a bit of olive oil on the casserole. Then line it with pancetta with the meat overhang outside the casserole. At the same time heat the cream and add in milk in a separate pot. Bring it to slightly below boiling point, add in herbs, pepper and salt to taste.
Then stack the potato slices in the casserole and pour in the cream mixture. Make sure the cream covers all the potatoes. With the pancetta overhang, just fold it back to the casserole, covering the potatoes like in the photo.
Slow bake the potatoes for 2 hours at 150 -170 C.
Also Hubby tried to make cocktail using the bottle of Cointreau he got for me recently. Use a shaker, add ice, mix Cointreau with Bombay Sapphire and Lemon Juice. Voila! You’ve got White Lady!
I found half a packet of Parmesan Cheese in the fridge that expired 6 months ago and I am still keeping it, never a thought of discarding it at all. Its in the fridge for god’s sake!
I think you shouldn’t be alarmed, that I used it in this biscuit recipe. Wont die wan.. because I have proven that fact. If not I wont be sitting here to blog about it. I made this 2 or maybe 3 weeks ago I couldn’t remember. Oh.. maybe the first side effect of using expired cheese is memory loss! For those cheese expert out there, you may drop me a note to warn how can an expired cheese can kill me. Thanks!
Ingredients that you need to make this beautiful biscuit:
50gm or 1/2 cup plain flour (all purpose flour). I don’t believe flour has expiry date, if you kept it too long it might get infested by flour beetle that’s all. Anyway I kept my flour in the fridge too, no wonder my fridge is so full! omg
40gm or 3 tablespoon softened butter. These butter look ugly cause I played with it. BTW butter wont expire if you kept it in the fridge or kept it frozen.
One Egg Yolk. Don’t waste the egg white, at the same time use it as a facial mask while u make this biscuit. Keep the egg whites in an airtight container in the fridge and use whenever needed.
First, rub together the softened butter with flour in a bowl. It should resemble breadcrumbs.
Then add in the parmesan cheese, egg yolk, a pinch of salt and mix well. Knead into a dough ball, then make it into a log shape and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Make sure you wrap the dough with a plastic cling film.
After 30 min, bring out from the fridge and slice/cut the dough thinly. As thin as you can get la!
Bake for 20 minutes on 150 celcius
Tadaa!! No this is not mine! The nice nice Parmesan Thins suppose to look like this
Mine look like this:
It says in the recipe book that the Parmesan Thins if made right, is crispy and melt in mouth. Mine doesn’t melt in Mouth but its Crispy! FthatBook. The recipe book was a birthday gift last year and I am still flipping and looking at it nearly everyday before I went to bed.
I am possessed!Tweet
