Turkey Running Gear #4

Turkey Running Gear #4

OK it was a very tasty Turkey, Leak, Bacon and Mushroom pie. This is actually the fourth meal we’ve had from a Turkey Thigh and Drummer with enough left for a good home grown Curry this evening. No bad going for £4.02!

So far we’ve squeezed the following out of it:-

A roast dinner
An Omelette
Two portions of Pie each
and the Curry this evening.

So a bit of number crumbling = £0.42p for the protein component of 10 servings. Yes we’re tight Yorkshire folk. But even for us that seems pretty good going.

As I’ve hijacked the kitchen for the last few days and burnt myself out yesterday prating about with a blunt saw (Don’t ask!) this was Sue’s creation. Hence the artistic presentation, rather than my more “Industrial” approach…...

Stuffed Aubergine

We had a small box of minced Beef in the freezer from a previous recipe. So with this thawed and the addition of an Aubergine each and some Chilli Cheese slices we came up with this.


250g Minced Beef
1 Tin of Kidney Beans
1 Onion sliced
2 Cloves of Garlic grated
1 tin of chopped Tomatoes
½ a tube of Tomato Purée
2 teaspoons of Chilli powder
2 whole Chillies chopped ( Deseed if you prefer it mild )
Salt and Pepper
(1) Cut the Aubergine in half length ways and hollow out. Leaving some flesh inside the shell.
(2) Fry the Onions, Garlic and Chilli powder and add Salt & Pepper to taste.
(3) Add the Aubergine flesh, Kidney Beans, Minced Beef and tin of Tomatoes then allow to simmer.
(4) Add the Tomato Purée.
(5) Add the Chillies.
(6) Simmer on a low heat.
(7) Lightly Oil the Aubergine casings and pop them in the oven at 180c on a try.
(8) When the Chilli has reduced and your Aubergine cases have roast bun at still firm enough to hold a filling, spoon the Chilli into the cases.
(9) Add a layer of Chilli Cheese and place under the grill to melt the Cheese.
(10) Garnish with a little fresh Parsley for colour.

We served ours with herbed new Potatoes and a little salad. Even Smooh the cat enjoyed a little Chilli!
