Hot Potato Salad Recipe – Ad

One of the issues with my long days in work is finding time to snack. On Tuesday I went from my porridge at 6.30am at the desk with nothing until a meal at 3.30pm when I got home from work. That’s daft carry on altogether and I have nobody to blame but myself. So when Potato.ie – Potatoes More Than A Bit On The Side challenged me to come up with a new recipe I knew that it was an opportunity to make the most of my suppers in the evening and design a recipe that is perfect for an evening meal and matures into a delicious lunch that travels well.

The beauty of this recipe is that by cutting the potatoes into small cubes, you can speed up the cooking time for the tasty bites. If you’re not a fan of bacon, then switch things up by using feta cheese (or Irish cheddar) instead and add a tablespoon of decent olive oil to the dressing recipe. I don’t season this dish at all because there is enough salt from the bacon, but I do think some minced garlic would be a great addition to the salad dressing. Read More

Egg Tarts

I’ll keep it short today! These egg tarts are great for lunchboxes. You can make them ahead and they will keep in a lined box in the fridge for up to 2 days. They also reheat very well too. I just lash whatever squishy veg/leftover meat I have in the fridge into the tarts. Don’t complicate things, make life easy on yourself.Egg Tart Wholesome Ireland

Note you’ll also need about 200g of rice or baking beans for this recipe but they aren’t eaten and can be used again on another occasion.
