Easy Food Recipes of the Month!

Gourmet croissant

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a slight weakness for Easy Food magazine, the monthly step-by-tiny-step guide for novices of the fine culinary arts of tin opening, bread browning and kettle operating. 

The October ‘Halloween Special’ contains some appropriately horrifying dishes with which you can easily ruin even the most voracious of appetites. But before we get all complicated, let me introduce to their delightful recipe for Ham And Cheese Croissants

For this dish, which serves 4 – four! – people, you will need:

4 croissants

2 slices of ham, each cut in half

4 slices of cheese

Don’t forget to  “split the croissants lengthways“.

Now, I’m not making that up.  If anyone actually needs a recipe for ham and cheese croissants: a) they probably can’t read yet, and b) they should not, under any circumstances, be allowed to use a knife.

Anyway, now that I’ve got your tastebuds ‘tingling’, let me scrape them off you with Caesar’s fish

This one serves 2 – two! – people:

2 fresh white fish fillets

125ml Caesar’s salad dressing*

80g cornflakes (crushed)

50g cheddar cheese, grated (the cheaper the better, by the look of the picture)

There are step-by-step instructions included in the magazine, but, frankly, all you do it is put the fish on a baking tray, drizzle/sprinkle the ingredients on, and then bake it until it becomes quite possibly the most vile taste and texture endurance test you will ever put your mouth and stomach through.

Readers would be far better advised to stick to the magazine’s section on toasted sandwiches, which is sponsored by… EasiSingles.  Oh. Dear.


Caesar's Fish - er, "yum"?

*oh, that’s how this dish got its name – and not because Gaius Julius insisted upon sprinkling breakfast cereal on his dinner.

  1. Where do I get these ‘croissants’ or ‘Easi singles’ of which you speak? I don’t like French cheese from Easi or anywhere like that. Bloody food snobs wreckin’ me head presumin’ there’s organic food markets on every corner…

  2. I’ve no idea, Adam, really sorry I can’t help you out there.

    You work “out-in” Tallaght though, don’t you? You’ve got a better chance of finding Caesar’s fish where you are, probably in a bin out the back of The Square.

  3. Caesar’s fish is a delicacy out in Tallaght. Only on birthdays. I can’t imagine what I would actually find in the bins at the back of the Square but I would imagine dead people and animals.
