. Laverbread from Parsons Pickles
Bara Lawr in the frying pan
The Ingredients (Serves 3)
3 tins of Bara Lawr (available on line with Parsons pickles)
2 medium chopped onions
2 cloves of diced garlic, or of you prefer, mince
1 tin cockles
Mixed chopped peppers
7 table spoons of Porridge oats depending on thickness required.
Sprinkling of crushed chillie Sprinkling of curry powder
Pepper and salt to taste
Method (Preparation time: 45 mins approx)
Fry the onions and garlic until cooked.
Add chopped peppers then the cockles and Bara Lawr.
Cook for about 5 minutes and add chillie, curry and salt and pepper.
After about a minute of mixing well, add porridge oats, stirring until nice and thick. Leave mixture to cool.
Form into bite size balls ( or bigger to own preference), I've got a big bite!, and place on greased or non stick baking tray.
Bake at 180C until slightly crusty on the outside. This takes me about 20-25 minutes.
N.B. Bara Lawr Bagees can be made in a slab, then sliced into squares and frozen. To serve from frozen warm up in a microwave. Lardons may be substituted for cockles in this recipe.
