If you could eat ONE last meal

June 12, 2017

The food you see in the picture above is a traditional British Roast dinner. If I could eat one last meal in my life, it would be this. I've loved this dish every since I was a child. I even cooked it for my American author friend and her boyfriend when they visited and they loved it!

 

This is what a traditional roast contains:

 

Meat - Roast beef, or Pork (with crackling), or lamb, or chicken/turkey.

Roast potatoes - Cut potatoes in half, boil them until they're just softening, then put them in a tray of hot oil before putting them in the oven for an hour.

Roast parsnips - same as potatoes (only do half a parsnip per person).

Roast Sweet potatoes - same as potatoes (only do one or two small chunks per person).

Sage and onion stuffing balls - cooked in the oven.

Boiled veg - Peas, carrots, broccoli. Brussel sprouts, greens.

Yorkshire pudding - Make a batter out of plain flour, milk and 2 eggs. Heat up a tray with very hot oil before adding the batter to each hole. Put in a very hot oven for 15 mins (do not open the door at any time).

Gravy - beef or chicken, depending on the meat you're having.

Accompanying sauces - Horse radish for beef, cranberry for turkey, mint for lamb, apple for pork.

 

And, that's how you put together my favourite dish. It's famous because it became a traditional Sunday dinner a very long time ago.

 

If you give it a go, let me know what you think!
