What to do with the left-over bread crusts after having made bunny chow?
Martie had a craving for white bread on Friday. I normally purchase low-GI bread. I went and bought a lukewarm loaf, some cooked veggies and beef-curry from our local supermarket. On return I proceeded to make bunny chow, cutting the loaf in three parts, hollowing out the two ends and filled them with the veggies and beef-curry. The idea is to soak the soft inner bread in the sauce and eat the crust along with the filling.
I froze the crust of the remaining third (don't ask what happen to the inner soft white bread — it is wicked with a little butter).
For lunch today I made a haddock dish:
- Three scoops of fat-free milk-powder dissolved with boiling water in an ±18x25cm Pyrex dish
- Break the crusts of about five (5) end slices (bread) into the warm milk
- Add ±200ml of frozen peas and spread evenly
- Cook 400-500g of haddock in the microwave for about 10 minutes, remove the skins and break into small pieces
- Add the fish on top of the peas and sprinkle some flavouring (I used Ina Paarman's garlic & herb seasoning)
- Beat two-three eggs and pour on top of the fish
- Grate shedder/other cheese on top and sprinkle with Paprika
- Put in oven (at 180˚) or the microwave for about ten minutes
Voila, a nice meal for four adults!
