    When in need eat what you have !!

    Got home last week - soaked to the skin as it was pissativly possing down and I had no waterproofs .
    Starving hungry after a day non- stop working and a 90 km drive home on the Airblade.
    Forgot to stop at the bloody supermarket ! Prat !
    Had been intending to go food shopping for a couple of days but never got round to it !
    So

    Fridge contained a half bottle of Gin and a couple of tonics - a good start !
    Sampled them and continued searching.

    Came up with a couple of hamburger buns.
    A small tin of baked beans.
    A 2"cube of Danish Blue
    And an egg !

    So under the guidance of the gin I hard boiled the egg, opened the beans and mashed them together with the Danish Blue .

    Spread thick on the buns it was bloody lovely .

    Did it again last night ( on purpose) and even sober it was really good !
    New one for the recipe book !!!i

    Last nights had a sprinkle of dry Colemans mustard added !


    Any other posters done anything like this ?

    A can of beans is all you need.


    Plus any other crap in the kitchen/fridge to make a perfect snack.

    A thought;

    Warm beans, mashing them a bit so they go nice and creamy, on a very low heat.

    Add crumbled blue cheese, low heat till melted.

    Grill buns a bit

    poach or fry egg (poached would be better)

    serve cheesy beans on buns topped with egg and a healthy twist of black pepper.

    Best eaten with a large gin....

    That actually sounds like something you could buy in the UK, and only there. How is it with Marmite? Is it in the English cookbooks under the category "Character Builders"? I used to think that British dietary habits were something dreamed up to frighten the French out of (re)invading, but they persisted long after the French had gone completely flaccid.

    All of those ingredients are available in LOS.

    You might need to use your imagination on the cheese though.

    Obviously, you used blue cheese because you had no Stilton.

    I never made it.

    However, if I did Stilton would be preferred.

    Better still an aged gorgonzola.

    Or, maybe a King Island Roaring Forties.

    Oops, sorry, Happyman ran out of Stilton. You are going to mix an aged gorgonzola with beans? That doesn't show respect for the aged. Now, a Danish blue probably wouldn't mind, or judging from what I have seen of Danes at least not while on holiday.

    Yup. You'd only need a spoonful.

    Just that added tang would be good.

    Hell, that's not scrounging, that's a meal fit for a king...

    Try coming home drunk and only finding a can of sardines, some pickle relish of questionable age and 1/2 bag of Fritos... That's enough to put hair on your chest...

    I would recommend doing them on a spit, you can leave the head on for baleine rottiserie. I believe whale should be served with the head.

    The French never invaded Briton, it was the other way round hence why parts of France are called Brittaney.

    Are you sure you aren't Mexican? It sounds a bit like refried beans.

    Not a pissed up meal but nevertheless devised under duress !
    I like honey glazed roast ham !
    Had some friends coming in the evening to 'pig out' on one.
    Got the lump of cured pig and scored the skin - rubbed in thin 'Colemans Mustard'
    made with olive oil not water .
    Turned the oven on and went to the market to get veggies etc .
    Got a bit distracted at a local booze consumption establishment and got home with just about the hour or so needed to get it done .

    I glaze ham before roasting with honey and orange marmalade - I take out all the bits of peel and save them for my brekkie yoghurt !

    Fan - shit- hit !
    Some prat ( me ) had left the cap off the bottle of honey and it was now 50% -50% bloody ants !!!

    Found I had some Tate and Lyles Golden Syrup _ Brits will understand !

    A bit of hot water - syrup - orange jelly from the marmalade - Job done !

    Was even better than if I had used honey !!

    Just a thought !
