Honey Croutons (蜂密面包干)

I believe we all have left over food sometimes. Be it we do some switch up to cook into something else or just throw it. I don't like the second way, throw it.... I try my very best to do a switch up to make it into something edible.

Normally when i cook ABC soup, the soup and meat will be very fast moving leaving the veges behind. With the left over veges, the potatoes and the carrots i will keep in the fridge to make my chicken pie fillings later. This round i have some stale bread in the fridge. I am going to make them into Honey crouton. It is a more healthier choice for the kids to take it as a tit-bits or a little snack.


Honey Crouton (蜂密面包干)
recipe source: Carol's 'The second book of baking for the begineers'

Ingredients:

4 pieces of stable bread (i am using my left over Oat meal sandwich loaf)
30 g castor sugar
20 g honey
15 g unsalted butter
15 g dairy whipped cream
a pinch of salt

To do:

Cut the bread into cubes.


Spread them onto a baking tray and baked them at 150C for 15 minutes.



Melt unsalted butter add in castor sugar and stir well.



Add in honey, salt and whipped cream, mixed well.



Add the toasted bread cubes into the above mixture and toss to coat well.



Arrange the coated bread cubes onto a baking tray and bake at 150C for 15 minutes or until it is crispy. When it is cool, store them in a air tight container or a cookies jar. I bet you, your cookies jar will be keep digging by the old kids and the young kids :D :D

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
