Just before Christmas, my parents brought us a mass of reduced food. They have a habit of doing this, and we’re usually inundated with things we struggle to use up. In this assortment was some sandwich fillings. Now, I’m not usually one for these shop bought fillings, but I have to say they were absolutely delicious! However, I wouldn’t dream of paying full price for them! I have been experimenting ever since, and this is what I’ve come up with (not rocket science I admit):
Cheese and Onion
Take cup of grated hard cheese, any cheddar really, the more kinds the better. To this add 2 chopped spring onions and enough mayonnaise to make it spreadable. Leave in the fridge overnight for the flavours to develop. Absolutely delicious.
My version, as I don’t have pastrami kicking around. Make egg mayonnaise and mix in chopped cooked bacon and chicken. Try not to eat it before you put it in the sandwich.
THE Chicken Mayo
Fry chicken pieces in garlic butter under cooked through. Add some chopped spring onions and cook until soft. Allow the mixture to cool and then mix with mayonnaise to your preference.
We like Mayonnaise in this house, as you can see. These take no time at all and cost a fraction of what you pay in the shops. You can make a weeks worth up in 1/2 hour and your all set with affordable lunches. Keep them in several little seal able tubs and they will stay fresh for the week.
