Hybrid Hotdogs - Super Easy Sausage Rolls - Tasty, Crispy Hotdog in Puff Pastry!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Snacks / Fast Food
Serves: 6
 
Today we're going to make a hybrid hotdog.... or the simplest sausage roll ever. A hotdog sausage wrapped in puff pastry with tomato sauce and mustard is amazing, however there is a trick to making this work, otherwise you will end up with a gooey mess.... and here it is...
Ingredients
For 6 Hotdogs
  • 6 Vienna sausages
  • 2 x 400g Rolls puff pastry
  • Tomato sauce (ketchup)
  • Mustard
  • 1 Egg, beaten
Instructions
  1. Slice the vienna sausage at an angle all the way down the length of the sausage.
  2. Flip the sausage over and repeat this.
  3. When the sausage bakes in the pastry with the sauces, the sauce pulls in to the sausage instead of making the pastry wet and doughy.
  4. Continue with this until all of the viennas are cut.
  5. Unroll the puff pastry and place a vienna at the end of the roll.
  6. Give the vienna a dose of tomato sauce and mustard.
  7. Use the plastic separator yo roll up the puff pastry to enclose the vienna.
  8. Press down the edges of the pastry, and trim off the sausage roll.
  9. Add another sausage to the pastry and continue the process until all of the sausage rolls are formed.
  10. From a standard 400g pack of puff pastry, you should get 3 rolls. Simply multiply out the recipe to get the quantity you require.
  11. Line a baking sheet with parchment and transfer the sausage rolls to the sheet.
  12. Brush the hybrid hotdogs with beaten and bake them in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f until crispy and golden and nicely puffed up.
  13. Serve the baked hotdogs immediately with the accompaniments of you choice.

Fish Nuggets - How to Make Golden, Crispy Fish Nuggets - Homemade Fish Nuggets
Author: 
Recipe type: Seafood / Fish
 
These fish nuggets are out of this world. Spiced up with cracked black pepper and cayenne, they can serve as a main course, as part of a seafood platter, or as snacks at a cocktail party... and if you omit the cayenne pepper, kids will love them too.
Ingredients
  • 800g Monkfish, or any firm white fish
  • 250g All-purpose flour
  • 30ml Cracked black pepper
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
  • 15ml Fine salt
  • 4 Eggs
Instructions
  1. Starting with the coating, combine the salt, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper with the all-purpose flour and stir this until totally combined.
  2. Place the eggs in a jug and whisk these thoroughly until all of the albumen has broken down.
  3. Pour the eggs into a large bowl.
  4. For the fish, I am using monkfish, but you can use any firm fish.
  5. Remove the fillets from the spine and cut the fish into bite-size pieces.
  6. To coat the nuggets, start by sprinkling a layer of the seasoned flour over a large platter. This is where the coated fish will set, and the thin layer of flour will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged. Put this aside.
  7. Drop 6 to 8 pieces of fish into the seasoned flour and toss them to coat. This dries the surface of the fish in preparation for the egg. Transfer these to another platter and continue until all of the fish has had its first coating.
  8. Working with one nugget at a time, dip the nugget in the egg to wet all of the flour, then transfer it to the flour to get a good solid coating all over. Transfer this to the setting platter and continue until all of the nuggets are coated.
  9. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  10. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f. Carefully lower the nuggets into the oil and fry the fish for 3 minutes until crispy and golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove the nuggets from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  11. For this quantity of fish, you will need to fry the nuggets in 2 or 3 batches.
  12. Serve the nuggets immediately with lemon or lime wedges and dipping sauces and accompaniments of your choice.

How to Make Long Eggs - Long Cylindrical Eggs Made Easy!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast / Salads
 
Long eggs allow you to slice uniform cooked egg slices to dress salads, garnish breakfast, and simply confuse your guests. After visiting a long egg factory, I decided to see whether it was possible, and practical to make these at home without all the fancy equipment.
Ingredients
  • 4 x Large eggs
Equipment Required
  • 1 x Elastic band (long, or more joined)
  • 1 x 100ml Measuring cylinder
  • 1 x 250ml Hi-ball tumbler
  • 1 x Digital pot or pot on induction range
Instructions
  1. To start, separate the egg yolks from the whites and whisk both thoroughly.
  2. Loop the elastic over one handle of your pot, stretch it across the pot and loop it over the other handle.
  3. Place the high-ball tumbler in the center of the pot.
  4. Invert the measuring cylinder and position this in the center of the tumbler.
  5. Lift the elastic band and position this across the center of the measuring cylinder. This will prevent the the tumbler and cylinder from floating when the pot is filled with water.
  6. Pour the egg white into the space between the cylinder and the tumbler.
  7. Fill the pot with hot water until the water level is about a half inch above the level of the egg white.
  8. When I say hot water, the water must be around 60c or 120f. If it is too hot, the tumbler could crack. This heat also prepares the tumbler for the heat to come.
  9. Set the temperature of your pot or induction cooker to 85c.
  10. Place a thermometer into the pot to monitor the temperature. When the temp hits 80c,start your timer. 30 minutes after this point, the egg white will be sufficiently set.
  11. Remove the elastic band. Carefully remove the measuring cylinder from the egg white leaving the set egg white with a gaping tunnel all the way through it.
  12. It helps the jiggle the cylinder back and forth to allow a little air down the side of the cylinder to break the vacuum below.
  13. Place a funnel into the center of the egg white and pour in the egg yolk until it is level with the top of the white.
  14. By this stage the temperature of the water will be at your target of 85c.
  15. Allow this to cook for a further 35 to 40 minutes.
  16. Towards the end of this time, you can test the egg yellow with a skewer. When it comes out of the yellow dry, the yolk has set properly.
  17. Remove the tumbler from the water.
  18. Using the handle of a dessert spoon press the handle carefully down the side of the egg. Work your way all the way around the edge of the egg.
  19. This will allow air into the glass and the egg will slide out much easier.
  20. All that remains is to slice your cylinder egg slices....

How to Make Egg Rolls - Egg Rolls au Gratin - Superbly Tasty Egg Rolls
Author: 
Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast
 
Egg rolls are an all-time favorite. These eggs rolls reign supreme in the realm of egg rolls, and whether you serve them as finger snacks or as an accompaniment to breakfast, you will never be disappointed.
Ingredients
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1 Tomato
  • 50g Good quality aged salami
  • 50g Finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 100g finely shredded mature cheddar cheese
  • 45ml Snipped garlic chives
  • 15ml Butter for frying
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper for garnishing
Instructions
  1. To start, slice the tomato into thin slices.
  2. Slice the cured, aged salami into 1mm slices.
  3. Finely shred the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Whisk the eggs thoroughly... there must be no albumen visible in the egg.
  5. Finely shred the mature cheddar cheese, and snip about 3 tablespoons of fresh garlic chives.
  6. Add a tablespoon of butter to a 32cm pan. When the butter is sizzling, spread it around to coat the base of the pan.
  7. Pour in the egg and swirl it around to spread it evenly across the pan.
  8. Sprinkle 2 thirds of the chopped chives over the egg, followed by half of the shredded Parmesan cheese.
  9. Spread the thinly sliced salami across the egg, followed by the second half of the Parmesan cheese.
  10. Arrange the thinly sliced tomato around the edge of the pan with any leftover slices in the center.
  11. Season the whole lot with salt and cracked black pepper and remove the pan from the heat.
  12. Slide the egg from the pan onto a large chopping board.
  13. Sprinkle half of the mature cheddar cheese over the egg.
  14. For this part, you need teflon fingers.... starting on one side, roll the egg up as tightly as you can. If you don't have heat-proof fingers, allow the egg to cool for a few minutes first.
  15. Trim off the ends of the roll. This step is the most important of all.... put the ends in your mouth and enjoy the first taste.
  16. Cut the remaining roll into slices of 15mm or 3 quarter inch thick.
  17. These can be served just the way they are, but going the extra mile makes them extra special....
  18. Transfer the rolls to a baking sheet and sprinkle the second half of the cheddar cheese over the rolls.
  19. Place the pan in the center of your oven with just the grilling element on full blast for 5 minutes.
  20. Serve the egg rolls au gratin sprinkled with dusting of cayenne pepper and garnished with the remaining snipped chives.

Super Extra Crispy Deep Fried Chicken Wings - These Chicken Wings are Unbelievably Crispy and Yummy!
Author: 
Recipe type: Chicken
 
Just a week or so ago we published the super-crispy pigs wings. The video was met with much interest, and quite a few of our viewers asked me to do the same super-crispy coating using chicken wings..... and here it is.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 Full chicken wings (16-24 winglets)
  • Oil for frying
  • 120ml Chicken seasoning of your choice
  • 500ml All purpose flour
  • 30ml Salt
  • 60ml Cornstarch
  • 140ml Chicken stock
  • 2 Eggs
Instructions
  1. To start, trim of the wing tips and cut through the center joint of each wing.
  2. Place the wings in a large pan in a single layer. Sprinkle half of the seasoning of your choice evenly over the wings making sure to coat both sides.
  3. Transfer the wings to a large vacuum bag in a single layer and vacuum seal the bag. It is always a good idea to double seal both ends of the bag.
  4. Place the bag in your dishwasher on the high setting, or 70c, and let this wash for 60 minutes. Alternatively place the bag in a digital pot with temperature control at 70c and let it cook for 60 minutes.
  5. While the wings cook, add the other half of the seasoning to the flour and cornstarch and mix this until combined.
  6. Pour chicken stock into the seasoned flour a little at a time, using a whisk to mix it into the flour. If the whisk gets clogged, simply clear it and continue until all of the stock is added.
  7. Put this aside to dry a little while the chicken completes its cycle in the dishwasher or pot.
  8. Once the cycle completes, get into the coating with your hands and break down any bits that are too big.
  9. Remove the wings from the bag. Notice that there is almost no weight loss.
  10. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Working with one wing at a time, dip the wing in the egg to wet it all over.
  11. Drop the chicken into the coating and dredge it to get a good solid coating all over.
  12. Transfer the coated wing to a platter to set while you continue with the rest of the wings.
  13. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  14. Half fill your wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  15. Fry the wings for 4 to 6 minutes until super-crispy and golden.
  16. Remove them from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  17. Serve the wings immediately and savor the incredibly crispy and tasty treats.

Author: 
Recipe type: Pork / Superbowl
Serves: 12
 
Today we're going to make a batch of Superbowl super-crispy pig's wings. These skewers are super-crispy, and I mean super crispy, and the secret to this is in the way the pork is coated before frying.
Ingredients
  • 2 x Thick-cut pork neck steaks (450g)
For the Coating
  • 125ml All purpose flour
  • 125ml Cornstarch
  • 2.5ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 75ml Chicken stock
  • 3 Eggs
For the Sauce
  • 45ml White wine vinegar
  • 30ml Light soy sauce
  • 2.5ml Cornstarch
  • 60ml Caster sugar
Instructions
  1. Starting with the secret coating...measure out the all-purpose flour, the cornstarch, baking powder, salt and chicken stock.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and use a whisk to stir these until combined.
  3. Add the chicken stock, a little at a time, whisking it into the dry mixture to form a rough crumbly mixture. Put this aside.
  4. For the sauce, combine the light soy sauce and white wine vinegar. Add the cornstarch and whisk this until dissolved.
  5. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and add the caster sugar.
  6. Heat the pan over medium high heat and bring it to a boil. As soon as the sauce starts to bubble up, turn the heat off and put the sauce aside.
  7. Unpack the deboned pork neck steaks and cut them into strips of 6mm or a quarter inch thick. Save any off-cuts or odd bits for stir-fries or other dishes.
  8. Thread the pork strips onto 15cm or 6 inch bamboo skewers.
  9. Whisk the eggs in a tall jug.
  10. By this time, the crumbing mixture will have dried a little. Use your hands to sift through the mixture and break down any lumps that are too large.
  11. Hold the jug containing the eggs at an angle and dip a skewer into the egg to wet it all over.
  12. Transfer the skewer to the coating mixture and dredge it to get a good solid coating all over.
  13. Transfer this to a platter to set and continue with the remaining skewers.
  14. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f. Carefully lower the skewers into the oil.
  15. Allow the skewers to fry for 3 to 4 minutes until super-crispy and golden.
  16. Remove these from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue frying the next batch of skewers.
  17. Transfer the pig's wings to serving platters and spoon the sauce over the skewers before serving.

How to make REAL KFC Fried Chicken at Home!!! The Real KFC Fried Chicken Recipe!!! Some time ago, I published the real KFC recipe. The response to this recipe was amazing, and judging by the feedback, it truly is the only KFC copycat recipe that is not a copy... it is the real thing. You can check out the entire KFC series by clicking the onscreen link now. Unfortunately this original KFC recipe takes 2 days to prepare and requires some specialized ingredients like saltpeter or Prague powder. Over the last few months, I have been working on a new version of this recipe that is far easier and user-friendly for the home cook. A few notes before we start.... I have adjusted and even changed some of the ingredients to compensate for the fact that the chicken is not cured and brined. You will need to own or at least have access to a vacuum packer, and you will need a dishwasher, or a large digital pot with temperature control.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 Chicken pieces (drums and thighs)
  • Oil for frying
For the Herb & Spice Blend
  • 15ml Paprika
  • 30ml Onion flakes
  • 5ml Dried Sage
  • 10ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Dried Oregano
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
  • 10ml White pepper
  • 5ml Dried basil
  • 5ml Dried marjoram
  • 15ml Dried and powdered coriander leaf
  • 5ml Ground ginger
  • Salt (2% of the weight of the chicken)
For the Rest
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 30ml Salt
  • 60ml Cornstarch
  • 250ml Chicken stock (or 3-4 eggs, beaten to replace the cornstarch and stock)
Instructions
  1. Starting with herbs and spices. Place the paprika, onion flakes, sage, garlic powder, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, white pepper, dried basil, dried marjoram, dried coriander leaf and ground ginger in a bowl and mix until combined.
  2. Transfer this to your spice blender and zap it all to a fine powder.
  3. Place 3 tablespoons of the powder in a sprinkle bottle.
  4. Weigh the chicken pieces and calculate 2 percent of this weight.
  5. This weighs 1200g, so I need 24 grams of salt.
  6. Measure this out and pour it into the shaker bottle. Shake it up to combine with the spice blend.
  7. Place the chicken pieces in a large roasting pan and sprinkle the spice blend over the chicken to get a good coating all over.
  8. This means on both sides and on the edges. This quantity of spice blend is sufficient for 12 pieces. I am only powdering 8 pieces, so will have a little spice left over. Add any leftover to the other half of spice blend.
  9. Place the chicken pieces in a large vacuum bag in a single layer. Vacuum pack the chicken. It is good idea to double seal both ends of the bag.
  10. Place bag in your dishwasher on the high setting which is worldwide standard 70c or 158f, for 2 full cycles or about 2 hours.
  11. Alternatively you can use a digital pot set to 70c, filled with water.
  12. While the chicken slow-cooks and absorbs all of the amazing flavors of the herbs and spices, we can mix the coating.
  13. Place the flour and the remaining spice blend in a large bowl.
  14. Add 30ml of salt and mix this together thoroughly.
  15. After 2 hours, remove the chicken from the dishwasher or pot, cut the bag and transfer the pieces to a large pan to cool for a few minutes. Notice that we have lost less the 2 percent of the original weight in juices. All of that yummy is still inside the chicken.
  16. To coat the chicken, you can beat 3 to 4 eggs, which is still my favorite, or here is an alternative. Whisk 4 tablespoons of cornstarch into 250ml of cold chicken stock. This will bond the coating very well, but as I said, I still prefer using egg.
  17. Pour the liquid into a flat bowl.
  18. Before continuing, sprinkle a layer of the flour mixture over 2 large platters. This is where the coated chicken will set, and the flour prevents the coating from sticking to the plate and getting damaged.
  19. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dunk the chicken in the liquid to wet it all over.
  20. Transfer this to the flour and dredge it to coat all over.
  21. Back to the liquid to wet all of the flour....
  22. Then back to the flour to get a good solid coating.
  23. Transfer this to a platter and continue with the rest of the chicken.
  24. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before frying.
  25. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  26. Carefully lower the pieces into the oil in batches and fry for 6 minutes, turning halfway through to ensure even browning.
  27. Remove the pieces from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue with the next batch.
  28. And there it is, an amazing batch of KFC...

Koeksisters are a traditional sweet pastry in South Africa. These little twisted pastries are nice and crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. Saturated with a spiced syrup mixture, these little wonders will have you coming back time and time again.
Ingredients
For the Syup
  • 500ml Water
  • 1Kg White sugar
  • 2.5ml Cream of Zest and juice of 1 Lemon
  • 8cm Cinnamon stick
  • 8-10 Slices fresh ginger
  • 5ml Glycerin
For the Pastry
  • 4 Cups all purpose flour
  • 125g Shortening (baking lard)
  • ⅛ tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 7.5ml Baking powder
  • 180ml Full cream milk (split 60ml / 60ml / 60ml)
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. To make the syrup, place the sugar, water, cream of tartar, sliced fresh ginger and cinnamon sticks in medium size pot.
  2. Place the pot over medium heat and bring this to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer the mixture for 6 minutes.
  3. Add the lemon rind and juice and the glycerin. Stir this in and remove the pot from the heat.
  4. Once the syrup has cooled, cover the pot and refrigerate overnight.
  5. The following day, place the flour, shortening, baking powder and salt into your food processor and pulse this briefly 2 or three times to cut the shortening into the flour.
  6. Remove the lid, crack the eggs into the bowl and add the first 60ml milk.
  7. Switch the machine on high speed and allow this to mix for 20 seconds while tilting the machine from side to side.
  8. Add the second batch of milk and repeat the mixing process.
  9. Add the third batch of milk and run the machine for a further 30 seconds, tilting it back and forth.
  10. After the mixing, you will have a soft crumbly mass of pastry that will hold together when compressed.
  11. Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface and turn the pastry out.
  12. Work the pastry into a flat disc shape and wrap it in cling wrap.
  13. Allow this to stand for 60 minutes at room temperature.
  14. After the resting time, cut the pastry into 16 equal portions.
  15. Working with one portion at a time, work the pastry into a sausage shape about 4 inches in length.
  16. Place the pastry on a piece of plastic film, fold the film over to enclose the pastry, than roll it out to about 6mm or a quarter inch in thickness.
  17. Unfold the plastic and cut the pastry in half across the width.
  18. Cut each half into three along the length, leaving the narrower end intact.
  19. Plait each pieces using a simple 3 strand plait, put these aside and continue with the remaining pastries.
  20. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  21. Carefully drop the pastries into oil in batches and fry them until well puffed and golden.
  22. Use your tongs to lift these one by one from the oil and dunk each one immediately into the ice cold syrup to get a good coating.
  23. Put the coated koeksisters aside and continue with the remaining batches.
  24. And there it is... a wonderful crispy, golden batch of South Africa's favorite pastries.

  2. In your mixer bowl, measure out the all purpose flour, salt and first batch of sugar.
  3. Pour the warm water into a jug and add the yeast and second measure of sugar.
  4. Whisk this together until the sugar is dissolved, cover the jug and allow this to activate for 15 minutes.

  10. Stop the machine. The dough will be shiny and smooth and stretchy like melted mozzarella.
  11. Scrape the paddle down, close the machine and let the dough stand for 5 minutes undisturbed. If your machine doesn't have a splash guard, cover the bowl with a towel.
  12. After 5 minutes, add the spinach and feta cheese.
  13. Close the machine and mix on high speed for 60 seconds.
  14. Divide the soft dough equally between the holes of a 12 portion muffin pan.
  15. Cover the pan with a large inverted roasting tin to rise for 20 minutes.
  16. Brush the buns with a light coating of full cream milk and top each bun with a good pinch of finely shredded Parmesan.
  17. Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 12 to 15 minutes until well risen, golden brown and crispy on top.
  18. Remove the buns from the oven and allow them to cool in the muffin pan for 20 minutes before turning them out onto a cooling rack.
  19. And there it is.....a supremely soft, airy, springly and tasty roll... the best dinner roll ever.
