Now this may sound a tad strange, but hey, try it! This is great on any bread, but I like pumpernickel, whole wheat, and rye! This came out of Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery. Using cream cheese, this is an English recipe.
This makes for delicious hors d'oeuvres or a wonderful sandwich on a baguette or whole-grain bread!

This is a Jamie Oliver recipe which we tried when I was trying to convince two friends they would like fennel. It was so fabulous that it's become a staple. The finished roast is marvelous and leftovers (if you have any) are just as good warmed up or made into sandwiches. We generally make an apple and pear compote (apples, pears, lemon juice in a gratin dish in the oven beside the pork) to go with it. A fabulous meal, good enough for a holiday dinner.
Boxty is essentially potato cakes using both grated and mashed potatoes. The word comes from the Irish bac-stai, for the traditional cooking of potatoes on the hob (bac) over an open fire (stai.) Margaret Johnson ("The New Irish Table") gives this recipe for a boxty from a restaurant in Killarney, County Kerry, using only grated potatoes. She recommends serving it with bacon and cabbage or Irish stew.

Mussels are so tasty that they require very little embellishment. Here they are partnered with garlic potatoes and herbs to give a gutsy low-fat treat. It is important not to boil the mussels too much or they will become tough. Add a splash of cream at the last moment for extra luxury. From "Gourmet Ireland" by Paul and Jeanne Rankin.
