So what DO we eat while we watch sport on TV?
In our household, I have to be honest, we don’t watch a lot of sport. My parents’ house is a different story. You’ll always find the tellie on with horse racing, football, tennis, cricket – anything really. But the problem is they don’t eat anything while they watch. Maybe the odd apple, and that’s it. My household is the opposite. Not much sport-watching but lots of food.
So in a fantasty world where we might sit down to watch ‘The Cricket’, I can picture this: huge bowls of air-popped popcorn and a few cans of diet coke. Bowls of carrot sticks and spicy tomato salsa. Don’t be fooled. This is called saving calories in anticipation of what’s to come. Step aside diet-conscious folk, it’s time for the ultimate home made sausage roll. But with short cuts.
I start with kosher cocktail franks. I am not too sure why I think they have to be kosher except that’s what I grew up eating. They are quite delicious (bearing in mind they are casings full of goodness knows what).
You will need some puff pastry, preferably a good quality one bought from the store. Of course you could make your own, but the game is about to start and we don’t want to miss (insert name of favourite Cricket player HERE), do we?
So here is the uber-complicated recipe. Ready for it?
So that’s it. Simple as anything, and now we can get back to the game.
