One of the things I love about being a food blogger is that I come across a lot of food and recipes that intrigue me. It is easy to forget that I have not seen and I have not eaten it all, since I am constantly immersed in food. So I am always on the lookout for new to me flavours and combinations.
Like this sausage gnocchi bake from Chef Dean Edwards and Bacofoil. I was seriously intrigued at the combination of ketchup, mustard, milk, gnocchi and tortilla chips. I would never have dreamed to put these things together. I pretty much ran to the shop and ran back home again to make it as I could not wait to see the final result.
And my gosh, it was good. I photographed and ate it straight away (not even waiting to check that I had good enough photographs to put on the blog). I think this is now going to be one of those easy but good recipes that I will have up my sleeve for those after-school meals, pantry staple suppers and impromptu drop-ins eats. Do try it out and see if you think the same.
And please do check out the non-stick kitchen foil from Bacofoil. No need to add any butter or oil before baking or grilling your food – which makes cooking that much healthier. Simply pour on your sausage gnocchi mix, wrap it up, bake away and eat and celebrate about not having to do that much washing up.
Here is how to make a gnocchi sausage bake. Enjoy every mouthful.
