It's nearly here!! Christmas that is. It seems that for the past few years, we have not been home (Perth) for Christmas. It was Europe in 2009, and hubby's home country (KL) in 2010. For 2011, we will be having a quiet one with our extended family and friends in Perth. It will probably be the least prepared Christmas for us given both of us will be working through it.
I stumble across this idea by looking food apps. I took the butter bean bake idea and themed it with some chives and onion cream cheese topped with bread crumbs. I think it is a good idea to theme it with a roast dish, or even some pan fried chicken. I am always on the lookout for good side recipes and I do think this will help.
Cream Cheese Butter Bean Bake (serves 4)
1 can of butter beans slightly mashed with fork
50 grams cream cheese
1 sprig of rosemary chopped leaves
1 cup of bread crumbs fresh if you have any
few tablespoon of milk
Mash butter beans with milk if needed. Mix cream cheese through the butter beans. Season. Place in an oven proof dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and rosemary over it and spray it with oil. Bake for 20 minutes.
food brings people together, regardless of culture and country of origin. imagine this space like a huge dining table-filled with home cooked food, with people sharing, loving and eating. eat and enjoy.
