Fun of the fair
Chicken, Bacon and Brie Toasted Clubs
These tasty clubs offer a meal in a sandwich.
1 chicken breast
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
8 rashers eye bacon
12 slices thick toast bread
1/2 cup thick and creamy
1/2-1 avocado, sliced
8-12 slices brie
8 buttercrunch lettuce leaves
8 slices tomato
Cut chicken breast through the widest part into 4 thin, even slices. Spray with oil and sprinkle over seasoning.
Heat a frying pan and spray with oil. Cook chicken slices 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
Cook bacon until crisp and set aside. Toast the bread.
Lay out 4 slices of toast and spread with a third of the mayonnaise. Top with chicken, avocado and brie. Add a second slice of toast, spread it with mayo and top with bacon, lettuce and tomato. Finish with the last slice of toast spread with the remaining third of mayonnaise.
Cut each sandwich stack into 4 triangles and skewer with picks (we joined 2 triangles together for our photo).
Makes 16 clubs
These special hot dogs contain spicy sausages nestled in sweet chilli beans, with grilled cheese and a cooling tomato and cucumber salsa on the side.
6 long bread rolls
6 long thin kransky sausages or frankfurters
420g can mild chilli beans
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon Cajun spice
1 cup grated tasty cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 tomato, finely diced
1 small Lebanese cucumber, finely diced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
Preheat oven to 180C. Cut out a large V shape along the top of each roll to create a hollow for the filling (save the cut-outs if desired and make them into breadcrumbs to freeze for another dish). Place rolls in a shallow baking dish.
Simmer sausages for 1 minute then drain. Warm the chilli beans with barbecue sauce and Cajun spice.
Spoon half the beans into the buns then top each one with a sausage, cover with remaining beans and sprinkle cheese over. Bake or grill 6-8 minutes until buns are toasted and cheese golden. Serve chilli dogs with salsa.
Salsa: Combine all ingredients and season to taste. Keep chilled until required.
