Cheap Arsed Sausage Rolls

2 cans Crescent Rolls (Regular--Not Flaky)
8 oz Breakfast sausage
8 oz Cream cheese
Sesame seeds
Egg whites

Crumble sausage in a skillet and brown meat. Drain off excess fat.
While meat is still warm, mix in cream cheese. Spread out crescent rolls, cut in half to make smaller triangles.
Put a heaping spoonful of meat filling in each triangle and close over filling. Brush rolls with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 375 degrees until golden Options: Use round crescent rolls to make smaller round puffs. Roll out dough and cut each strip into thirds. Spread each strip with cream cheese and roll up. Brush with egg white and cook as above.

I'll post the proper way to make

Scotch Eggs

tube of sausage, your flavour of choice, Its usually a pound or so.
2 teaspoons guinness
6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 cup dry bread crumbs Panko is the best
1 quart oil for deep frying

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the pork sausage and Guinness . Combine the flour, salt and pepper; mix into the sausage.
2. Divide the sausage into four or six, (depends on how thick you want the sausage to be) equal parts. Mold each part around one of the hard-cooked eggs, rolling between your hands to shape. Place the beaten egg and bread crumbs into separate dishes. Dip the balls into the egg, then roll in the bread crumbs until coated. Shake off any excess.
3. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C), or until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns brown in 1 minute. Lower the eggs carefully into the hot oil. Fry for 5 minutes, or until deep golden brown.

Guinness Bread

It was bloody late last night and I got it in my head that I needed to make some bread. Chris threw in Ong-Bak (which I highly recommend), and I went to town kneading the dough.

8+ cups flour , Wheat would be the best
1/2 c molasses dark
2 c guinness stout fresh and warm would be the best
1 c warm water
half a sick of butter
3 tsp sea salt
2+1 packets yeast (I threw an additional package of my beer yeast in but a third packet of active dry would do nicely.)

Take 4c flour and mix salt and yeast in nicely.
stir in the guinness, water, molasses, melted butter
The dough should be right sticky about now, start to combine the remainder of the flour slowly. Its a load easier to do this cup by cup as it won't get all over the place. (throw the oven on 400 while you're at it) Once you've combined the 8 cups of flour, throw it on your table covered in .5c flour and start the kneading. (start to sing Finnegan's wake, wild rover, the republic, drink some Guinness)
You'll kneed the dough until its thoroughly mixed and doesn't stick to the counter top, table or whatever you threw it on.
Grease a large bowl, throw the prepared dough in the bowl, coat with a bit more butter and throw the bowl contents into the oven for about 3 minutes,
Remove with hot pads, Place on top of the oven and cover with a damp towel. Turn off the oven, walk away and drink. In an hour return and your dough should be rather large. Punch the dough down, divide into three and place into three greased bread pans, you can wait another 20 minutes if you fancy with the bread covered with the damp cloth. If you are impatient that's fine too. set the oven to 375, once its heated place the bread in the oven. Make a couple slits in the top of the dough prior to placing it in the oven.
43 minutes later, remove the bread and cool
Enjoy with butter and more guinness

Kemper doodle's fridge meal for the eve

tomato soup
brown rice

Preheat your oven to 350
Take your chicken and lay it on a cutting board, lay two pieces of saran wrap on top of it and pound with flat side of meat mallet. If you don't have one, use a hammer I know there is one in your garage. Make the chicken flat but not too flat that it will break probabably about 1/4+ inches. Cut the mushrooms into slices, slivers, or however you fancy. Salt and Pepper the chicken, place the mushrooms on the chicken, in a layer, then place three spears of asparagus in the chicken, wrap up and place the open side down.
Prepare rice as normal as this will be the bed for your chicken wrap.
Bake for 30 mins and you should be squared away.
You can do what you fancy with the tomato soup, use it as a sauce, or save it for another night.
