Quick thinking here, proving that a snack can be more alluring than a quick sarnie!

I love to make this with dried morels, which are available from specialist food shops, but dried porcini will also be excellent.
This, if you've got the time, is a Welsh rarebit with a difference. It's rich golden brown, light and puffy.
Supermarket dill-pickled cucumbers are always a bit on the sweet side for me, so this is my attempt at capturing that lovely sour New York deli-type pickle.
Preserved properly, beetroot has none of the overpowering vinegar flavour that you all too often find in jars. Instead, it has a wonderful sweetness and flavour that makes it ideal with all cold meats and cheese.
A filling and very satisfying supper dish for one, this jazzed-up version of scrambled eggs on toast combines all the wonderful flavours of a full English breakfast in one hit.
