Credit Crunch Recipe - Fried Noodle, Egg, Cheese and Bacon Fridge Clearout!

Whilst the whole wide world seems to be going through the 'Credit Crunch' you can add any kind of vegetables etc to this that you might have otherwise thrown away. Ideal for when you have a fridge clear out day - Thrifty Jan ah!

Now, I don't suppose this will have done me a bit of good with the noodles, cheese and bacon......Lord knows how many calories are in this lot. But hey ho, I've never added calories up in my life and thank goodness, I haven't had to.
Remember a while ago I fried left over spaghetti?  Well this time I had some left over noodles. So, noodles got fried, same sort of thing me thinks.
Here is another concocted recipe from fridge left overs!
There's no real recipe so you can use whatever else you fancy.
To make this for 2 people I used:
noodles, you know the kind, the ones that come ready to stir fry
2 rashers of bacon cut into small strips
2 eggs - lightly beaten
salt and pepper to season
chili oil for frying and drizzling - use garlic or vegetable oil if you want, I just like spicy things!
2 spring onions - sliced diagonally - just so it looks like you've made an effort!
a good amount of grated matured cheddar cheese
a few bits of feta crumbled
In a large frying pan:
In a little chili oil fry the bacon bits until nice and crisp and golden
Now add the spring onions and stir for a minute.
Put in some more chili oil and now add the noodles. Breaking them up if they clump together. You can cut them into smaller bits with kitchen scissors before hand if you wish.
Get the noodles hot and cooking away then stir in the eggs. Leave to cook for a minute and then throw in the grated cheese. Season with a little salt and pepper.
It will look like a spaghetti omelet, so now try turning it over. Don't fuss about it falling apart and if actually only half of it gets turned over - it all adds to the look! You'll end up with crunchy, and not so crunchy bits and soft noodle along with melty cheese too.
Divide in half and tip onto serving plates. Top with a little crumbled feta, drizzle with a bit more chili oil and tuck in.

Peter's Sofrito and Marc's Spicy Yakisoba - Two Great Recipes!

Today, I thought I'd share with you two recipes I made recently from two fantastic blogs. The first being Peter's recipe for Sofrito over at Kalofagas.
As soon as I spied it with my little eye, I had to make it.

Peter's Sofrito
I followed his recipe exactly, apart from using pork escalopes as I had some in my fridge.

I also served mine with Greek roast potatoes and I have to say this recipe was so lovely. I cooked mine in my tagine, any excuse to use it!
The pork was really lovely and tender and the sauce was dee-lish.

For the potatoes, I par boiled them in lightly salted water for a few minutes.
Drained the water from them using the lid of the saucepan, gave them a shake to fluff up the edges. Drizzled them in a good amount of olive oil and squeezed with lemon juice. I put some lemon wedges in with them and seasoned with a little more salt and pepper and dried Greek oregano. Popped them into a pre heated oven - 200C/400F/Gas6 for about 45 minutes, turning them and basting with the oil half was through.

Marc's Spicy Yakisoba
The second recipe I had a go at was Marc's Spicy Yakisoba over at No Recipes.
I know I mentioned making this in my last post and so I've already said how yummy it was. Such a lovely and easy stir fry that as soon as I saw Marc's post I knew I'd be making it.
Again, I followed Marc's recipe exactly and I used chicken. It was amazing with a nice tingly spice to it and the crunchy vegetables, it was just totally yummy.
My photo is not making this dish look as nice as it really is so pop over to Marc's to see how it ought to look!

So, thanks you two for these great recipes, both of which I will make again and I really enjoy reading both blogs!


Noodles and Vegetables with Chilli Bean Sauce

The other night I made a couple of Chinese dishes, sweet and sour pork, egg fried rice and a large bowl of noodles with vegetables in chilli bean sauce topped with pea shoots. The sauce gave it a nice sweet and spicy heat.
Now, the noodles I must say turned out rather nice indeedy. I had a jar of chilli bean sauce and a pack of prepared stir fry vegetables which consisted of Chinese cabbage, beansprouts, sliced red onion, sliced red pepper, carrot, bamboo shoots. I also had a few pea shoots.
So easy and quick to make too!
In a wok heat up about a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Then add the vegetables along with a little soy sauce and stir fry for about 30 seconds. Now add the ready cooked noodles along with about 2 teaspoons of the chilli bean sauce. This sauce is hot so even I only used a small amount.
Give it all a good stir to heat through, then add the pea shoots seconds before it's all done and serve immediately.
