Say hello to Heather!
One of the things I loved about wandering through Heather's blog was all the amazing tips and tricks she offers regarding both gardening and cooking from building a veggie patch through to cooking suckling pig. I was gobsmacked!
The recipe I chose from The Tasty Gardener was actually the very first recipe I remember making in Home Economics class many, many, many years ago. I remember going into a panic when I first heard we were making it as I thought rabbit was the main ingredient.
Surely I wasn't the only one! Right?
25g unsalted butter | 2 ½ tbsp plain flour (or gluten-free flour) | 150ml milk | 1 garlic clove, crushed | 2 tsp hot English mustard or Dijon | 2 tsp worcestershire sauce | 250g gruyere or cheddar, grated | Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper | 4-6 slices of your favourite toast | parsley to serve
- Over a medium heat melt the butter. Once melted add flour and cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
- Gradually add the milk and stir to thicken.
- Stir in the crushed garlic, mustard, worcestershire sauce and cheese and season to taste.
- Allow to cook for a further 5 minutes until nice and thick.
- Spread the cheese on top of your toast and grill for a few minutes until brown and bubbling. Top with parsley.
