Roast bread

Now, this is something that is a Christmas morning tradition in my family (and the Big Guy thinks is the most disgusting thing he's ever heard) but I learned the other day that it's possible to do with any roast meat. I will be much fatter by the end of this year so...


Brown soda bread
Leftover meat jelly


  1. Have a lovely roast dinner.
  2. Having collected the leftover roasting juices of your dinner leave them in a bowl in the fridge overnight.
  3. Next morning you will see that they have separated into a fatty top layer and jelly bottom layer. Scrape off the fat layer and bin it (or keep it for making roast potatoes!).
  4. Slice up your soda bread, not too thick, not too thin.
  5. Put a frying pan over a med-high heat.
  6. Put a large tbsp (or 2!) of your meat jelly onto a slice of soda bread and place in the frying pan. Rub the bread around in the liquid the jelly turns into, flip it over a few times, and generally allow it to soak up all those yummy meat juices and get crispy on the outside.
  7. Eat. You will be astonished at how good it is. No, it's not healthy but hey, we all need treats and pick-me-up's sometimes! :-)
