The freezer had a couple of Turkish breads perfect for some garlic bread and then I thought - what's nicer than garlic bread? - Cheesy Garlic Bread. There was also a chorizo sausage, a few prawns and a container of leftover chicken casserole. Not enough of any one thing for the dinner but combined more than enough.
The chicken casserole could become pasta sauce. I have written about using leftover casserole or stew here It als makes a good pie filling or a filling for a savoury crepe
All that I needed to do was toss in a packet of cooked fettucine and serve with lots of parmesan and a salad.
Dessert was a version of this cake . There were a lot of tangelos in the fruit bowl so I substituted three tangelos for the mandarins and baked it in a springform tin.
Cheesy Garlic Bread
1 large breadstick/ rolls/Turkish bread/ sourdough loaf
2 tablespoons soft butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup grated strong or sharp tasty cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
Slice breadstick into 2 cm thick slices; I slice diagonally and all the way through as it is easier to serve if I do not have to pull the slices apart.
Beat all ingredients together. I use a food processer.
Spread onto sliced bread stick/ Turkish bread.
Wrap in foil and bake in a hot oven for 15 minutes.
