OK, so they may not be the healthiest snack, but they sure are yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • Flour
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika (Optional)
  • Hot dogs
  • Bread
  • Mince
  • Chilli spice mix or sauce
  • Tin of beans (I prefer baked beans to kidney beans)
  • Cheese
Fryer needs to be at about 170-200.

Make your chilli and leave to simmer while you do the dogs. (Better flavour)

Make a batter mix. Beat the egg, add the flour and milk, mix it up. If it's not goopy enough, add more flour. Too goopy, add more milk. Needs to be like double cream only a bit thicker. Add your seasoning.

Get bread slices, remove the crusts and mash down with your hands so it's doughy and flat. Add either a cheese slice on it, or some grated cheese and put your hot dog on it and roll it up. Squish it with your hands to seal it up, dip it in your batter mix and drop it in your fryer. Let it go golden and remove it.

Plate them up and chuck your chilli on top and grated cheese if you want.

You can also make cheese bites the same way. Wrap chunks of cheese in bread, dunk in the batter and deep fry until golden.

(Chilli dogs also nice as BBQ cheese dogs. Add BBQ sauce instead of chilli on top.)

 
 
Easy to do and yummy. A great snack.

Ingredients

  • A bag of Almonds
  • A knob of Butter
  • Chilli powder
  • 1 clove of Garlic (Whole)
Heat the butter in a pan and add the garlic, fry the clove so that it flavours the butter and remove. (Make sure you don't burn it.)

Add the chilli powder and the almonds and mix until coated. Tip out and cool before serving.

[NOTE: You can try other types too! Instead of chilli powder, why not cajun seasoning? Or maybe even cinnamon?]

 
 
Ever wanted to make your very own crisps? (That's chips to you Americans. ;) ) Well, now you can. And the best part? It only consists of three ingredients!

Ingredients

  • Several medium sized potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt
Slice your potatoes as thin as you possibly can. (Usually, you'll find the perfect tool to use on the sides of a basic kitchen cheese grater to slice them thin enough: [Example] )

Once these have been sliced, simply soak then in cold water to remove the starch and rinse well. Drain them and place the slices onto a piece of kitchen towel, or on a tea towel to remove the water. Now they are ready to fry!

In a pan heat your oil. This has to be quite hot for them to be deep fried. Place the crisps in the hot oil and fry until hard. If they brown quickly, reduce the heat.

Alternatively, you can bake them too! Simply place on a baking tray and drizzle oil (Or spritz, if you are lucky enough to have spray on oil!) over the top and bake until golden.

Then add whatever flavour you want to them! You can even adapt the recipe and make sweet potato crisps instead.

 
 
NOTE: This recipe contains Egg, milk, bread and dairy products. Allergy sufferers beware!

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (Optional. I prefer it without, personally.)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (It's not needed, it just makes the mix go further if you have a lot of people to make for.)
  • 4 slices white bread
Preparation:
Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt, and milk.

Over medium-low heat, heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter or margarine.

Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl or plate, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.

Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Serve the Eggy Bread hot.

NOTE: This recipe serves 1, but can be adapted to serve more. Just add more bread, eggs and milk. (If needed)
