After submitting my last Cheesy recipes I was asked by Nar "More!! Please add some more cheesy receipes" So here they are


Makes 4 Preparation time 5 mins cooking time 12 mins

100g Grated Red Leicester Cheese
1 Sliced Red Onion
100g Cherry Tomatoes Halved
4 Tablespoons Tomatoe puree
1 teaspoon Mixed Herbs

1 small clove garlic crushed (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic puree/crushed garlic paste)

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celcius / Gas Mark 6
2. Place the Muffins Halves on a baking sheet cut side upwards
3. Mix the puree, garlic and herbs together
4. Spread each muffin evenly with the puree mix
5. Arrange the onion and tomato halves on top of the puree
6. Sprinkle cheese over the tops
7. Place in the oven and cook for 12 minutes until the cheese melts.
8. Serve warm

Mozzerella cheese can be substituted for the Red Leicester cheese.

120g Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Beaten Eggs
280 ml milk
120 g grated cheese
Oil for frying

2. Slowly blend in the egg mixture until smooth
3. Add enough milk to make a thick batter and beat well
4. Add the remaining milk and add 3/4 of the cheese
5. Mix Well
6. Heat the oil in a flat frying pan until very hot ( you can tell by the sheen of the oil rippling and whisps of smoke rising from the pan)
7. Pour in a thin layer of batter and swirl around the pan coating the surface evenly
8. Fry until golden brown on both sides
9. Turn out and roll up
10 sprinkle the tops with the remaining cheese continue until all the batter and cheese is used up.

If you prefer a ready made pancake mix can be used in this recipe
