Treat yourself to a delicious casserole. Simply place in an oven proof dish and pop it in the oven at around 180 for 40 - 45 minutes. The time will depend on how much you are cooking - for large amount please allow more time.
A delicious stuffed pepper takes around 25 - 30 minutes in the oven depending on the size. Pop the stuffed peppers on an oven proof tray and bake at around 180 degrees.
These can be cooked in the oven or in a frying pan. Personally I prefer a pan. I prefer pork to be a little over than under and depending on the thickness will start with a really hot pan, fry one side for 5 minutes, turn the heat down and cook a further 10 minutes or so on the other side. Check it is cooked before serving
Oven or BBQ are my favourite cooking methods. For simplicity I like a slow cook at 160 degrees for around 50 minutes with a loose foil cover.
Slow cooking brings out the best. Place in an oven proof dish, I add a good splash of water in too. Cover loosely with tin foil oven at 150 to 160 degrees and this can cook for 4 - 6 hours depending on the size. You can't really go wrong with this and the house will smell amazing
Oven is easiest, 180 to 200 degrees for around 30 minutes for a delicious meal.
I think the best method is in a oven proof pan at a lower heat, around 170 and cook for 30-40 minutes. Keep an eye on them, the juices from the fruit will keep the meat moist but if your oven is hot the meat could dry on the top so keep turning them every 10 minutes
Place in an oven proof dish - temperature around 190 - 200 degrees and cook for 30 minutes until the pastry is clearly cooked
These are good for the oven or pan fried. I prefer them cooked in the pan much like a sausage. Temperature not too hot, turned regularly until cooked through
These can be cooked in an oven just like a sausage - indeed make a good addition to a sausage. I like to add some apple in the pan when cooking them.
Simple and delightful, oven around 190 - 200 degrees and cook for about 30 minutes. Check the pastry is cooked through.
Another delicious alternative. Oven bake at around 180 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes until cooked to your liking
The meat balls can be cooked in the tin foil container in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes at around 170. Personally I prefer to put them in a saucepan, I use a small one so the tomato covers the meat balls and cook thoroughly
Multiple schools of thought on cooking chicken super high temperature and cook quickly or slow and succulent. We use a temperature gauge to ensure any roast is cooked, simple and no worries - we sell them in the shop. To cook these try 15 minutes a pound plus 15 minutes - then check it is cooked.
I think there is only one way to cook this, if a big frying pan for around 30 minutes.
Place in an oven proof dish, around 30 - 35 minutes until cooked at 180 degrees. Or in a frying pan turning regularly
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and these take just 30 minutes to cook through. When the pastry is cooked through you know they are ready
Cooking this is pretty simple, if you have a wok get it really hot with a little oil and add the contents and stir until cooked through
I have my own way of doing these. I use a frying pan I can put under the grill. I start on the hob at a medium heat and fry on one side only for about 10 minutes. Then I pop them under a medium grill and finish them off. This takes about 20 minutes. Alternatively you could place them in an oven for 20 -30 minutes
Place in a hot oven and cook for 25 - 30 minutes
Oven baked or fried in a pan these take about 20 minutes to cook on a high heat
A family favourite, place in an oven at 190 - 200 degrees. These take around 30 minutes to cook. Check they are cooked through before serving
Place in a very large frying pan or WOK and cook at a high heat until cooked through - stirring all the time
Great for the BBQ. For ease, indoors, these are best laid out on a large oven proof tray and cooked at 180 degrees, turned regularly until cooked through
