Simple Tasty Lunchtimes

There is nothing ‘simple’ about this summer’s restrictions, rules and guidelines. So, make the most of the things you do still control – mealtimes. Many, instead of a pile of lunch boxes to prepare 5 days and cook just 2, have had the challenge of lunches 7 days a week. We hope these help.


Steak Nachos


A lovely treat to enjoy with the family are these Steak Nachos with Burger Relish. Delicious cheesy nachos with steak, avocado, jalapeños, red chillies, chopped tomatoes, topped with sour cream and our Burger Relish.

Take advantage of some very good value rump steak from the supermarkets and you really don’t need much when searing and sharing it with lunchtime nachos like this.

Our juicy Relish is a rich, slightly sweet tasting red pepper, tomato and onion salsa, with a subtle note of chilli. Take it a little further by mixing it with fresh chopped tomatoes, red onion, red pepper and basil for a super salsa treat. And add Chilli Jam for a little more super salsa heat.

Potato Cakes


Brunch or Lunch – it just gets better and better.

Potato Cakes are a great way to use up leftover mashed potato. Mix 500g of said mashed potato with 100g of flour 1 egg and 3 tbsp of Red Onion Marmalade. If the mixture is too wet, add more flour; too dry, add a drop of milk.

A tasty alternative to the Red Onion Marmalade is to use our Creamed Horseradish instead – seriously yummy.

Put a little flour on your hands and make patties ready for frying.

Top the cakes with a couple of ripe avocados mashed with our Garlic Mayonnaise. Boil or poach an egg each and serve with Chilli Jam or our deliciously thick Tomato Ketchup.

Croque Madame


This is the simplest ever Croque Madame. Chunky slices of sourdough bread work really well. Put grated cheese, slices of ham and our smooth Dijon Mustard between two slices.

Generously butter the outside of each slice and fry for 2 minutes each side, pushing the sandwich down with a fish slice.

Keep each croque warm while you fry your eggs to top the sandwiches.

Did you know that it’s the egg being added that changes the ‘monsieur’ into the ‘madame’. If you know why, please put us out of our misery and tell us.
