CookBlogShare Week 10 and The Savoury Round Up

First of all I must apologise for being so quiet on the CookBlogShare front. Things are just a bit manic and unsettled at home but we must continue on and I am looking forward to sharing with you my eight favourite recipes from the last two CookBlogShare's.

For this weeks round up I have gone for the savoury dishes. These dishes are all meals which my family and I would all love to have as a meal!

Here are my eight favourite recipes...

First up are these pikelets from Only Crumbs Remain. We love crumpets, but I will admit to preferring pikelets. They are thinner and I find them to be nicer than a thicker crumpet. These look so good with the butter melting into them. Perfect for a weekend brunch!

Next up are these Wagyu Meatloaf Cupcakes with Sweet Potato Frosting from Foodie Quine. These savoury cupcakes not only look great but they sound so tasty! This recipe is definitely going on my to try list. The kids, and I, love cupcakes so a savoury one is a must!

Following on is this flavoursome side dish of Dry Black Chickpeas from Herbs, Spices and Tradition. This dish is full of flavour from the garam masala. This post is not only a recipe but is also a post all about garam masala and how you can make your own.

This next dish called to me as soon as I read the ingredients! Only Crumbs Remain shared this deliciously tempting Spelt and Sheep's Cheese Pizza. As soon as I saw both spelt and sheep's cheese I was in! I love both of these ingredients and can imagine how well they go together!

When I saw the next post from Healthy Helper I knew that it was one for me. I love a good frittata but am often looking for new ways to serve it so this post of 15 frittata recipes was right up my street. There are so many ideas for additional ingredients you are bound to find plenty of new ways to enjoy this great egg dish!

Easy Peasy Foodie shared this firm family favourite dish, Sausage, Red Wine and Butter Bean Casserole. Since starting to eat more vegetarian meals we have been eating more beans. This kids would love the addition on sausages and would definitely be a success here!

Sneaky Veg has been coming up with even more ways to get more veg in our diets. These Spinach Farinata Crepes with Masala Dosa Potatoes both look and sound so good! I love how a sweet family favourite has been turned into a savoury with added goodness!

Last of all is this tasty curry shared by From Plate to Pen. This Chicken, Prawn and Mango Curry is a perfect combination of flavours. Next time I cook a chicken curry I will definitely be remembering this recipe!

Now over to you. I cannot wait to see what you have been cooking up and blogging about! Remember you can share recipes both old and new and there is no theme. All I ask is that you display the CookBlogShare badge, comment on my post and a few others. 

Here is to a great, foodie week!
