"Tapas" Mussels + Chickpeas with black pudding in garlic & parsley + Fried asparagus, ham & cheese bundles + Spicy sausage in red wine ~~~ Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine.
Gooey, melted cheese and crispy, golden bread make a stunning centrepiece to share with friends over drinks or as a dinner party starter - make ahead for fuss-free entertaining. Could remove bacon to make it veggie.
Buttered sprouts with chestnuts & bacon - quartered the recipe for xmas lunch. Shredded the sprouts (the kids prefer them that way). Nice but I think it could have done with some garlic and a higher proportion of bacon and nuts
