We’ve endured the sickly sweet ghoulishness of Halloween… so now it’s time for preparations to get underway for Bonfire Night on Saturday, November 5.
But what to cook for a banging, firework-sprinkled celebration may leave you scratching your head. It’s a tricky one isn’t it… with families and friends gathering outside it’s hard to know what food to turn your attention to but we say, ‘bring back the barbecue’.
Pick up a pack (or three) of Lakings Lincolnshire sausages made in our Louth shop to a traditional recipe using Lincolnshire-reared pork.
A tray of burgers will go down well, too – alongside a serving of sizzling hot dogs. Lakings offers a range of burger patties – from traditional beef to pork and apple and lamb and mint – all with our quality and flavour guarantee.
You’ll also still find our small barbecue pack, perfect for small gatherings, that includes our best-selling staples, including two 170g Lincolnshire Pork Loin Steaks, two 170g Rib Eye Steaks four 170g Steak Burgers, four 454g award-winning Jumbo Lincolnshire Sausages and a 454g pack of Lincolnshire Pork Spare Ribs (3 – 4 spare ribs).
Our delicious range of grillsticks are the perfect addition too – for your at-home take on a kebab. Choose from mouth-watering beef and halloumi kebabs – pieces of marinated rump steak, with halloumi cheese, ideal for the BBQ or they can be cooked under the grill or in the oven or our chicken kebabs in a range of six tempting flavours, using a variety of herbs and spices from an Indian-inspired mild curry grillstick to a Greek gyro-inspired flavour.
Why not have a go at making your own hog-roast-worthy pork buns but with a spicy twist? All you need is a shoulder of pork, plenty of spices and a cracking recipe… Devised by Lakings ambassador chef Rosie Dicker, try out the Fragrant Pork Shoulder – the perfect pork to pop in a fluffy white bun.
All make perfect finger food options for eating outside while fireworks whizz overhead.
Bonfire Night and the celebrations that take place around it are some of our favourite calendar moments, but as the temperature dips and the days shorten, we find ourselves spending more time indoors.
Not a sad move in our eyes – it offers the perfect opportunity to discover and recreate even more of the delicious autumnal recipes Rosie has created for us. From Braised Pork and Pineapple Salsa using our Lincolnshire-reared pork to a hearty, traditional Oxtail Stew.
With Lakings’ next-day delivery service, comprehensive website and quality assurances, finding the right meat products, whatever the occasion this autumn couldn’t be easier.
