5 Great British recipes with a twist
We've given some of the nation's favourite flavours a makeover. Discover new takes on traditional dishes, from smoked salmon Scotch eggs to a G&T meringue tart.
When you think of classic British food, what springs to mind? Perhaps it's getting the family together for a traditional Sunday roast, or tucking in to Scotch eggs and sausage rolls at a picnic, or even just sitting down with a cup of tea and a biscuit. To celebrate the best of British cuisine, we've taken five of the nation's best-loved recipes and given them a modern twist. So if you're bored of the same old dishes or just want to try something new, then our fresh flavour combinations won't dissapoint...
Giant Yorkshire pudding Sunday lunch
If you agree that the best thing about a Sunday roast is the Yorkshire pudding, then why not make it the centerpiece? This traditional British staple works perfectly as a giant bowl to encompass your roast, with crisp, fluffy sides and a delicious gravy-soaked base. With a bit of prep in advance, this impressive Sunday lunch can be served up in no time. Alternatively, you can make several large puddings and freeze them for up to two months. Once you've tried our giant Yorkie, you won't want to go back.
Smoked salmon Scotch eggs
As we know from dishes like Eggs Royale, smoked salmon and eggs makes a cracking combination, so we've reinvented the classic Scotch egg by replacing the traditional pork filling with smoked salmon. Boost the flavour further by adding herbs, capers, lemon and cayenne pepper.
Cheese & Marmite sausage rolls
When it comes to Marmite, if you're in the 'love it' camp, then our sausage rolls might just be a life changer. Incorporate Marmite and mature cheddar chesse into the sausage meat and puff pastry to achieve a tangy, umami flavour sensation. These tasty morsels can be adapted to suit various occasions – serve mini rolls for a canapé, finger-length as a snack or leave them whole for lunch.Cheese & Marmite sausage rolls
Tea & biscuit cheesecake bars
If you love dunking a biscuit in your afternoon cuppa then why not try these two classic ingredients in a comforting pudding? The delicate flavour of tea pairs well with the punchy butterscotch sauce whilst the creamy cheesecake filling is balanced by a crumbly biscuit base. This can be made from your favourite dunking biscuit – Hobnobs, Digestives or Oreos all work well.
G&T meringue tart
Capture the classic taste of a G&T in a dessert showstopper. This indulgent meringue tart replicates the zingy taste of tonic with grapefruit, juniper berries and lemons in the filling, which contrasts well with the light and fluffy topping. A blowtorch isn't essential but will give your tart a nice scorched finished.
