Possibly to stimulate recovery in categories (eggs, cheese) that’ve seen price hikes of 50%+ YOY?
But it’s working.
Within 24 hours, search demand had skyrocketed 16 times over.
We thought we’d road-test the trend with a showstopper soiree of our very own, featuring:
- Bacon and Broccoli a la Becki B
- The Famous ‘Quiche Pippa’
- Nicky’s Chickpea Cookies
- And more…
If you’re planning on rustling up a feast fit for a King, check out the methods to our madness below.
Bacon & Broccoli a la Becki B
Chop broccoli finely.
Chop red onion finely.
Mix together 2 heaped tbsps natural yogurt or mayo with 2tsp white wine vinegar.
Add sugar / sweetener to taste.
Mix with chopped broccoli and onion.
Grate in some cheese.
Add diced bacon or chorizo if desired.
The Famous 'Quiche Pippa'
In a pan gently soften (in butter) 125g of bacon and a diced onion.
Whilst that is cooking, mix together 300ml liquid (150ml semi skimmed milk, 150ml double cream if you are feeling healthy, or 300ml double cream if not) with 3 eggs.
Add lots of salt and pepper.
Take some pre-made puff pastry and line a 7” round baking tin.
Place the bacon and onion mix inside the pasty lined tin.
Add a handful of cheddar cheese.
Add the milk/cream/egg mix.
Add another handful of cheese.
Lots of salt and pepper.
Bake in the oven at 180 for around 40 mins.
Nicky's Chickpea Cookies
Whizz together 2 tins of chickpeas with 4 tbsps smooth peanut butter, 75g unsalted butter, 1 egg, 175g soft brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1½ tsp baking powder, 6 tbsp porridge oats and a big pinch of sea salt.
Once smooth, stir in 150g raisins.
(Raisins have proven to be an unexpectedly controversial choice within Blue Chip. Feel free to omit if you too believe that they are the Devil’s work!)
Neatly dollop 26 tbsp size blobs onto 2 baking sheets lined with flavourless oil then bake for 35 mins at 180 fan.
