No British roast is complete without a well-rounded mix of sides to support it. Give some classic sides dishes a modern makeover with a few simple ingredients…
Including some extra ingredients in the batter of this crispy, chewy side is a sure-fire way to help your Yorkies stand out from the crowd.
- Cheddar, Blue Cheese, Parmesan… a sprinkling of any will take Yorkshire puddings to the next level, and give diners a cheesy centre surprise.
Chef’s Tip: Chef Tony Jardella, Chef de cuisine at Perry and Blackwelder’s Original Smokehouse suggests adding a fiery bite with a tablespoon or two of Wholegrain Mustard or English Mustard Powder and a bunch of fresh thyme.
Rich, creamy and delicious is the only way to describe this mashed potato and cabbage mix. Scallions, milk and melted butter round it off.
- Swap potato for cauliflower and cabbage for kale to give this dish a healthy makeover.
Baked, boiled, chipped, mashed or roasted… this starchy veg is an essential ingredient to many a Brit classic.
Hasselback potatoes certainly have plating appeal. Slice, fan and layer the potatoes with black garlic and cheddar, and cook until crunchy yet tender.
Carrots & Parsnips
British roast dinners rarely hit the table without a serving of these earthy root vegetables.
Pair the veg with a subtle honey and a spicy blue cheese, like Stilton, and bring a delicious sweet/salty dimension to this classic side.
Bubble & Squeak
Traditionally made from leftover vegetables. Mashed potatoes bind everything together and the mix is moulded into small cakes and pan-fried.
There’s all kinds of ways to liven up this classic, try a dollop of Horseradish sauce, or substitute sweet potatoes for potatoes.
Chef’s Tip: Chef Tony recommends a spicy Indian twist with some curry powder and turmeric.
