Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals

I have been working my way through Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals, it has some great recipes for week night dinners.  Not sure if I’m managing to do them in 30 minutes though, I think I fall down on the “First get all your equipment and ingredients ready” bit!

 We are quite taken with the Catherine wheel sausages where you unwind a dozen linked sausages and squidge them in to one long sausage.  Then you roll up the long sausage into a Catherine wheel shape, stuff some sage leaves in to the gaps, splash over some olive oil, season and bung it in the oven.

The sage and leek gravy that goes with it is made with cider and is really delicious.

 The tray-baked chicken was scrumptious.  Flavoured with oregano, paprika, rosemary and baked with cherribelle tomatoes on the vine, quartered lemon and pancetta.  Mmmmm.

 We had it with orichette and runner beans.
Looking forward to more 30-minute(ish!) meals.
