An Egg roll is composed of meat and shredded vegetables wrapped in a wheat-based
wrapper and deep fried until crispy.
This deliciously appetizer is a close relative of the spring roll. Egg rolls can be identified
easily based on its size and wrapper. As you will notice – after doing this egg roll recipe
– that the size is larger and the wrapper is thicker. You will also notice that the skin
produces bubble-like texture after frying.
Shepherd’s Pie is a meat pie made of ground beef, some vegetables, and mashed potato.
Some say that this pie dish is a variation of Cottage Pie — which is made of minced beef or lamb. Instead of using mashed potatoes, Cottage pie is traditionally made by topping slices of potatoes over the minced meat.The potato arrangement that looked like tiles of a roof might be the reason why it was called such.
This delicous meat pie recipe is worth all the effort. I’m sure that you will enjoy eating this pie dish during anytime of the day.
Lasagna in Béchamel Sauce is a type of pasta casserole dish. The main ingredients which are pasta (lasagna), meat sauce, cheese, and béchamel sauce are alternately layered until the desired amount is achieved.
This particular recipe is only one of the hundreds of Lasagna recipes around. Although, I would say that this variation is the most popular of all – especially in the Philippines.
Did you notice the rich and tasty white sauce inside your lasagna? That is called the béchamel sauce. It is a simple sauce composed of scalded milk cooked with flour and butter. The béchamel sauce gives richness and additional texture to this pasta casserole.
Almondigas is a soup dish that has two main ingredients: meatballs and patola (this is also known as loofa of Chinese okra). I’m not sure where exactly this dish originated but it sure reminds me of a similar Spanish dish called Albondigas.
I used to call this dish Misua and Patola soup not until my high school days. I have several foodie friends back in those days and we always share ideas related to food and cooking. During that time, I also help my mom cook for her catering business.
Tortang Giniling is a type of Filipino omelet wherein ground meat (beef and pork being the most common) is sautéed with vegetables such as garlic, onions, and tomatoes then mixed directly with beaten eggs.
Unlike traditional omelets where eggs are folded around meats, cheeses, and vegetables; this recipe suggests cooked ground meat to be mixed in the beaten egg mixture before frying. A typical breakfast food, Tortang Giniling is best served with garlic fried rice and banana ketchup. Aside from being a breakfast food, this can also serve as your child’s packed lunch meal at school or your lunch at work – especially when you are always on the go.
I like this dish for three simple reasons: it is easy to prepare, economical (low cost), and delicious.
The only challenge that you might face is flipping the omelet. Since this covers the entire pan, it is quite challenging to flip everything and ensuring that the omelet lands in one piece. If you are having the same issue, try getting a similar sized pan or plate then transfer the omelet there (cooked part facing down). A spatula will be extra helpful to assist you in bringing the uncooked part of the egg back in the hot pan; you may also divide the ingredients into serving sizes and cook each one after the other; through this, flipping the omelet should come with ease.
I know that you have your own versions of this dish. Can you tell us how you do it? We love to learn new cooking styles and techniques. We hope to hear from you soon.
Spaghetti and Meatballs is a pasta dish consisting of spaghetti (a long, thin, and cylindrically shaped pasta that is of Italian origin), tomato sauce, and meatballs. Though spaghetti originated from Italy, it is said that this particular dish was first cooked in New York by Italian immigrants. However, there are claims that a similar version of this dish was served in Sicily even before it became famous in the USA.
This can be considered as a healthy food. The crushed tomatoes produces Lycopene (cancer fighting agents) when cooked for a certain period of time. Herbs such as fresh basil and parsley also contribute to the health benefits of this dish. In addition, baked meatballs contain less oil and fat compared to the fried ones.

Baked Macaroni is a pasta dish that makes use of elbow macaroni as the primary ingredient. At first look, this could be mistaken as the famous Macaroni and Cheese but there is more to this dish than just having pasta and cheese.
Meat is one of its most important components. Ground beef is usually used but others prefer ground pork, ground chicken, and even minced ham. Being a tomato based pasta, Baked Macaroni uses diced tomatoes (or tomato sauce) and tomato paste as well. Capsicum (or bell pepper) and paprika are optionally added to add more flavor and aroma.
The description above makes a regular Baked Macaroni but adding the Mornay sauce (or white sauce as we usually call it) makes it more special. This is a cheese and milk sauce made by combining a roux with milk and adding parmesan and gruyere cheese (or sharp cheddar if gruyere is not available). Then you’ll have rich and creamy pasta ready for baking.
