Tested Recipes, Experiments and Snap shots

March 31st 2014

Snapshots - hot dogs Another snap shots post with mostly tested recipes and experiments.

In the photo above you see my homemade hot dog buns following Joy the Baker’s recipe. I halved the recipe to make “only” 9 buns and used a stand mixer. This might have made my buns a bit more solid though.

I grilled the hot dogs on a griddle pan and topped them with chopped pickles, ketchup and mustard and sauerkraut and mustard. The one with pickles was my favorite.

Snapshots - lettuce wraps My first attempt at making lettuce wraps. I used ground pork, salted black beans, carrots and unsalted peanuts. Definitely a successful experiment!

Snapshots - Indonesian sausage rolls Indonesian sausage rolls Kokkie Slomo style (recipe in Dutch). You prepare the filling the day before and let it marinate overnight. I loved these, although I will omit the grated coconut next time.

Another favorite recipe is his Ketoprak (also in Dutch). It’s a dish made with fried tofu and an assortment of vegetables topped with a ketjap sauce (made with a type of Indonesian soy sauce). My photo of this dish didn’t turn out very well, but the taste was amazing. I especially love the sauce.

Snapshots - grilled vegetables with falafel Another experiment, this time a completely vegetarian dish. Lettuce, grilled vegetables (onion, garlic, zucchini, potato, red pepper and green beens), feta, spicy falafel and a yogurt sauce. The vegetables I roasted in the oven adding the green beans at the end.

The falafel I got from the supermarket, but I will try making my own sometime. Promise! The yogurt sauce was made with thick Turkish yogurt, some extra virgin olive oil, a small clove of garlic and lots of chives. All the flavors worked beautifully together. A great no meat dish.

Snapshots - homemade pasta Stefan decided to dust of the pasta machine and made our own tagliatelle.

Snapshots - homemade pasta Tagliatelle with a tomato ragù and lots of grated Parmesan. He also made cornetti which will feature in a separate blog post.
