Winter is a little too feisty. The weather in Tennessee isn't life-threatening, but it's very Wuthering Heightsy. Before I go outside, I dress carefully, as if I'm heading into battle. Instead of armor and chain mail, I wear a red puffer jacket. My son, Bandwidth, says I look like a giant tomato, but at least I'm warm.
A few days ago, I asked Bandwidth to look for a hearty recipe, and he found Scottish Sausage Rolls at Christina's Cucina, a charming, new-to-me blog that showcases many British recipes. Bandwidth made the rolls himself, along with mashed potatoes and gravy.
We also put a bottle of HP Sauce on the table, as Christina suggested.
These meaty rolls were a hit, a pleasing combination of flaky puff pastry and a meatloaf-type filling (but without the tomato sauce). One bite, and I was instantly transported to a pub in the West Country--The Prince of Wales. These rolls are wonderfully portable if you are bringing an entree to a potluck.
You can find the recipe, along with step-by-step instructions, at Christina's Cucina. While you're there, you may want to look at a heartfelt, insightful post: "Comments from from a Blogger's Perspective." If you blog about food at all, this post is a must-read.
I hope everyone is warm and snug on this winter afternoon.
