Egg Morcon

Labels: , ,

Hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage then deep-fried is a dish called Scotch Eggs. I found a similar recipe, Egg Morcon, in my Filipino Seventh-day Adventist vegetarian cookbook. The boiled eggs are wrapped in embutido made with textured vegetable protein (dried tofu bits).. Reversing the recipe from vegetarian to a meaty dish, I seasoned ground beef with a little powdered garlic and onion, soy sauce, and sea salt, and added a little milk, soft bread crumbs, and an egg for binder. I rolled the morcon in panko before deep-frying until golden brown and crispy. I love them with steamed rice, banana ketchup, and cherry tomatoes.

Butterscotch Bars with Dried Mangoes

Labels: , , ,

I "borrowed" the idea of butterscotch bars with dried mango from a Filipino snack with the same name. The package says it's from Iloilo; they're very good, somewhat chewy, and not overly sweet too. I adapted the Butterscotch Bars recipe from Betty Crocker cookbook using only half cup of sugar instead of one whole and substituting chopped dried mangoes for the nuts. I love these copycat bars. Delicious!
