Holst Recipe - Pieburgers, Almost-Anzac Biscuits, Tortilla Rollups - 13 May
For 9 pieburgers:
500g minced beef
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 tbsp flour
1 packet onion soup
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese
2 sheets pre-rolled pastry (150g each)
parmesan cheese (optional)
Heat oven to 200degC. Break egg in a large bowl and beat to mix. Pour half egg into a cup and put aside. Mix mince, sauce, flour, soup and cheese in the bowl with half egg. Mix everything.
Roll the thawed pastry thinly on a floured bench to make two 23-35cm squares. Divide meat into nine equal blobs. Put in three rows of three on one sheet of the pastry. Brush pastry with cold water. Lie the other sheet of pastry on top. Using a rolling pin, press pastry layers together between meat blobs.
Cut pastry into squares, trim edges and cut an air vent on each pie. Brush with reserved egg. Decorate with trimmings, if you like.
Put on baking tray. Bake 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on rack. Eat while fresh or freeze.
For about 36 biscuits:
1/4 cup golden syrup
1/2-1 tsp vanilla or almond essence
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp warm water
Heat oven to 160degC. Melt the butter in a fairly large saucepan. Add golden syrup and stir until blended. Take off heat. Add next five ingredients to the saucepan. Stir everything together then add baking soda dissolved in the water.
Using your hands, shape into walnut-sized (or smaller) balls, and place on baking paper on baking trays, leaving room for spreading. Bake for about 15 minutes, until evenly golden brown.
Transfer to a rack after 1-2 minutes. When cold, store in airtight containers.
Variation: Add 1 cup chopped roasted peanuts before adding sugar. If mixture is crumbly, add 1-2 Tbsp extra water
An interesting (and easy!) alternative to sandwiches.
Tortillas (or other flat breads)
Shaved ham, salami etc
Lie the tortilla or other flat bread on the bench.
Spread lightly with mayonnaise or spread of choice, then sprinkle with a little of each of your selected toppings.
Roll up firmly, cut in half or slices and wrap in cling film.
