Mexican Breakfast & Scanpan Giveaway!

Mexican BreakfastThis week I have been sent a new Scanpan lidded sauté pan to test out. Having loved their roasting pan so much, I was really quite excited to try it out!

On another note, the Mr absolutely loves Mexican cuisine and he found a fantastic one pot recipe from Jamie Oliver. Guess what? You need a lidded sauté pan to make it, it was meant to be!

So here is what you will need to serve 3 people:

  • 1 Small Onion, peeled & diced
  • 1 Garlic Clove, peeled & diced
  • 1 Red Pepper, deseeded & diced
  • 1 Red Chilli, deseeded & diced
  • 2 Fresh Bay Leaves
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 x 400g Tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Medium Tomatoes
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tortilla Wraps, to serve *
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese, to serve

*For a gluten free version either serve on it’s own or use gluten free wraps.

Once you have prepped all your veg, heat a large frying/sauté pan over a medium heat. Make sure you have a lid for it.

Add the olive oil into the pan followed by the onion, garlic, red pepper & bay leaves. Season with a healthy amount of salt & pepper and cook for about 15 minutes until soft & golden.

Mexican BreakfastAdd in the chopped tomatoes & bring to the boil. Cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

Mexican BreakfastGive it a taste, if you think it needs it – add in some more salt & pepper.

Lay the sliced fresh tomato over the sauce. Then make 3 wells, drop an egg into each one & sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.

Mexican BreakfastPop the lid on & cook over a medium heat for about 4-5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked how you like.

Spoon into the tortilla wraps & get it down ya! This is a seriously delicious breakfast & so easy to make. I love that it hardly makes any pots too! Certainly makes a change from that boring bacon & egg cob. Yes, it’s a ‘cob’ where I come from! 😛

Right, onto the Sauté Pan. A few things to note, the first being just how fantastic the quality is! There’s a reason this retails at £149, you really do get what you pay for. For starters, it’s nice & weighty but not too heavy to pick up, just the right balance. It’s safe for use on pretty much all hobs and it’s even oven & dishwasher proof. Making it really versatile in the kitchen & easy to clean. Not got a dishwasher? It’s still insanely easy to clean. Even the really tough crusty stuff just wipes straight off!

Also, because of the multi layered base (made from ceramic titanium, aluminium & other metals) it distributes heat really evenly and quickly. So you’re not stood there for ages waiting for the pan to heat up, nor do you get any uneven cooking.

And the non stick coating really is amazing. Not only making light of the cooking & the washing up, but you can even use metal utensils on it. Yeah, seriously. They literally won’t touch it it’s that good!

Another thing I noticed whilst using it is, due to the sides being quite high, it pretty much stopped all spatter from getting out the pan. I hate having to clean the hob every time I use it, and now I don’t have to! Brilliant.

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan Giveaway!

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan GiveawayWe’re into December now and there’s only one thing on everyone’s mind – Christmas. I’m here to help make it a little easier on you with my super simple & intensely delicious ultimate roast veg recipe. Not only that, but you could bag yourself literally the greatest roasting pan I have ever used! Competition details at the end of the post.

Here is what you will need to serve 3-4 as a side dish.

  • 350g Baby Potatoes, quartered
  • 2 – 3 Large Carrots, peeled & sliced
  • 2 – 3 Large Parsnips, peeled & sliced
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh Parsley, to garnish (Optional)

Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.

Quarter the baby potatoes (they should be roughly 3cm in diameter) then peel the carrots & parsnips.

Slice the carrots & parsnips to approx the same size as the potatoes – this will ensure it all cooks evenly.

Then throw it all into a good quality roasting pan along with the garlic powder, oregano, thyme, olive oil & a generous helping of salt & pepper.

Get your hands in and mix it all together so everything is evenly coated.

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan GiveawayPop it into the centre of the preheated oven and cook for 35-40 minutes until golden & soft.

I gave mine a mix half way through the cooking time.

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan GiveawayI told you it was simple! No mess, no fuss recipes are exactly what you need on Christmas Day to eliminate all that unnecessary stress. This is literally – chop it, mix it, cook it . Job done! And only one pan to wash after?? You’re welcome.

Now, onto the more important business at hand. The Scanpan roasting pan. Wowsers this is a great piece of kit! I’ll be honest, I had never actually heard of the brand until now. But honestly? This really is a kitchen must have and completely obliterates all the other roasting pans I have ever used!

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan Giveaway

What you need to know: Scanpan is a Danish company that not only strive for unrivaled quality with their patented ceramic titanium coating but they also care deeply about the environment. Despite the added cost, the Scanpan Classic range is made using 100% recycled aluminium and even the packaging they come in is 100% recycled material too.

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan GiveawayAs for the roasting pans, I have honestly never come across quality like it. It has a fantastic weight to it and you know they’re not lying when they say it comes with a ‘no warp’ guarantee.

The ceramic titanium non stick coating is really something to shout about too. I mean, nothing is going to stick to this baby – NOTHING! Every time I’ve roasted veg in a roasting pan, something has always stuck to the bottom and it’s a nightmare to clean. With this? No chance! Everything wiped straight off. It was like you hadn’t cooked anything in it in the first place.

Another thing I noticed when making this recipe was how evenly everything cooked. They claim the roasting pans have fast & even heat distribution and I totally agree! Fantastic stuff.

Ultimate Roast Veg & Scanpan GiveawayAn additional feature that I think is also worth noting, is the fact that the bottom allows it to be used both on the hob & in the oven. So you could sear some chicken or beef on the hob and finish it off in the oven – all in one pan. It literally does it all!

 

So, to be in with a chance of winning your very own Scanpan Roasting pan – just do one or all of the following 3 things:

 

1. Like the KitchenMason & Scanpan UK pages on Facebook then share the photo pinned to the top of my timeline

2. Follow @KitchenMason & @ScanpanUK on Twitter and retweet the competition tweet on KitchenMason’s Twitter feed with the hashtag #WinHausKM
