If you’re in a cooking rut, tired of using the same old recipes, we’ve got just the thing for you, some new options from Kerrygold to get your cooking mojo going. Here are 10 new family recipes guaranteed to make your mouth (and the whole family’s mouths) water!
#1. Cajun Potato Wedges with Sour Cream & Cheese Dip
These Cajun Potato Wedges with Sour Cream & Cheese Dip are always a winner, especially with children and you’ll probably find that you can never make enough!
They are also ideal for parties or barbecues but take the pressure off yourself and bake them in roasting tins in the oven.
#2. Panfried Hake with Lemon & Herb Butter Sauce
For a mid week supper (or your Friday fish dish) try this Panfried Hake with Lemon & Herb Butter Sauce. This recipe is great with just parsley but experiment with a combination of soft fragrant herbs such as parsley, chives and tarragon or chervil depending on what’s available or what you have growing on your window sill or in the garden.
#3. Spinach & Feta Pie
This Spinach & Feta Pie is a great vegetarian option that should suit all of the family. Traditionally known as spanakopita, which are normally bite-sized pastries, but this pie is much less fiddly and easier to make. It can be made up to a day in advance and kept covered in the fridge with clingfilm until ready to cook.
#4. Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms
Contary to Shirley Conran’s advice, we’d recommend these Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms! For a starter, it can be prepared up to a day in advance and kept covered in the fridge until needed. Look out for panko, which are Japanese dried breadcrumbs in Asian supermarkets or large supermarkets but you can also use fresh white breadcrumbs.
#5. Banana Bread
Give this easy Banana Bread recipe a whirl, perfect served warm from the oven (with a bit of butter of course!)
#6. Lemon Curd
This recipe for Lemon Curd is super easy and you can keep it in the fridge for a few weeks.
It’s great for meringues, ricotta pancakes and these scrummy lemon bars too.
#7. Apple Cake
For me, Apple Cake is always a reminder of cosy Sunday lunches in Granny & Grandad’s.
This recipe is very easy to whip up and you’ll have warm apple cake in an hour.
#8. Raspberry Shortcake
This Raspberry Shortcake dessert looks and tastes heavenly!
Definitely a dessert that will impress everyone. The perfect end to a special occasion dinner or just a lovely family Sunday lunch.
#9. Irish Oat Flapjacks
This has to be one of the quickest and easiest recipes to master. The traditional Irish Oat Flapjack is simply delicious and similar to an oat bar (and not to be confused with an American or Canadian flapjack which is another term for pancakes). They store well in an airtight container for up to 1 week, which makes them great for a packed lunch.
#10. White Chocolate Brownies
Another super easy recipe and small squares of these White Chocolate Brownies would be perfect for serving at birthday parties too.
