My mother wasn’t the best of cooks but one of her tips was after cooking a roast to drain most of the fat out of the pan and then add what was left to your gravy. Lots of meaty flavour in the gravy and you can use the fat another time. Definitely one of her better tips 😊
- Knowing Australia Day was going to be quite hot I cooked a lamb joint in the microwave on Thursday so we could have it cold with salady stuff.
- Being a small half leg joint meant there wasn’t much in the way of juices in the cooking container.
- Thinking I could still use it another day added a little bit of water and drained it into a tiny bowl.
- Put into fridge and promptly forgot about it until yesterday.
Look what I had for my breakfast. My version of Bread and Dripping.
Something I hadn’t eaten for many many years
(I did add a little bit of the brown juicy ‘stuff’ to my second slice)
There were times when we were little that mum would drain all the pan drippings into a container and we’d have it the next day on bread for tea.
