Tristan's birthday tableTuesday, July 08, 2014
On Sunday and Monday we celebrated Tristan's 25th birthday, so I prepared some snacks. I tried to make a large variation of plates but at the same time be within budget, as I was using the same ingredients and tried to make as many different recipes out of them as I could.
Deviled eggs made from duck eggs
I used mustard, mayonnaise and butter to get this creamy texture and stronger taste.
My favourite ham rolls
It is so easy to make them and I prepare them with 5 ingerdients: ham, Philadelphia cream cheese, Mozzarella grated cheese and garlic.
Lamb kebab wrapped in bacon (raw, picture taken before putting them in the oven)
I bought lamb meatballs, rolled them to get the longer shape and wrapped them in bacon. Lamb minced meat also cooks really fast, so they only need to be in the oven about 30 minutes.
I used lamb for burgers. I cooked the meat before in the oven, about 30 minutes maximum and then put them between the bread with little bit of cheese. Secured them with bamboo sticks and back in the oven for 10 minutes, just to melt the cheese.
Easy and quick recipe with green onions, cream cheese and grated Mozzarella cheese. I had them in the oven (180°C) for about 15 minutes and took them out when the cheese started to turn a bit brown on the top.
This cake was ordered from Patisserie Valerie and it is called the White Chocolate Dream Gateau. This cake is the best birthday cake I have ever tried. It is so sweet but still really easy to eat.
