Yes, it's old-fashioned nursery food, but I sometimes think that things like this need a revival. I love it with baked cod cutlets and creamy mashed potatoes, and it's also excellent with gammon, but most especially I love it with Salmon Fishcakes
Excellent to serve with boiled gammon or a bacon joint
Toad in the Hole is the most searched for recipe on our site, give it a try...
That classic sauce - Fiorentina - made with cheese and spinach comes into play here then is used to top hard-boiled eggs, a quick, cheap and easy vegetarian supper. Serve it with rice if you're really hungry, or crusty bread.
Good, homely comfort food that can easily be elevated to dinner-party status is how Delia describes these elegant little pastry parcels. If you haven't tried them, you don't know what you're missing…
This has a wonderful crust when eaten fresh but the next day it stays beautifully moist and makes excellent toast.
As Delia says, this recipe has plenty of imitators but all too often it's disappointing. Not here: rich, meaty, packed with Italian flavour, it does take a long time to cook, but that's the secret of a perfect Bolognese.
Sometimes the idea of the simpler the better makes for cooking success and never more so than in this pared-down recipe for asparagus that would make the most brilliant starter or lunch dish.
These wonderful feuilletes would make an impressive starter for a summer gathering and, again, combine asparagus with melting cheese - one of food's most perfect combinations.
A good recipe for a meatloaf will give you many strings to your culinary bow. Serve it hot on a cold winter's day with some buttery jacket potatoes or, if the weather is warm, it's lovely served cold with salads and chutney or pickles.
