Friday Favourites ~ Spring lovelies and a Ploughman's Lunch

Spring has sprung here in Oz and I’ve been spending as much time as possible outdoors enjoying the longer days and warmer temperatures.

Favorite Springtime Recipe: Ploughman's Lunch

Originally a British farm worker's packed lunch, the ploughman's lunch contains meat, cheddar cheese, strong pickles and lots of bread. It's the perfect food for picnics and large gatherings because it is easy 'grazing' food that goes beautifully with a glass of wine, a cold ale, an apple cider or flavoured water. To minimise the amount of "work" at serving time, all items should be sliced, readily accessible and placed directly onto a serving board or platter.

Here's what you need to construct the ultimate Ploughman's Lunch!

Mature farmhouse cheddar

Any other cheeses you like - I always add Stilton, Red Leicester and wensleydale cheese.

Rare roast beef and leg ham slices

Cold Chicken slices

Pink radishes

Pickled onions, gherkin, cornichons, etc


Hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved

Sea salt and black pepper

Crusty bread and REAL butter

Fruit chutney, Branston Pickle, horseradish, hot mustard and piccalilli. You needs lots of delicious condiments!

Simply place all the ingredients it all on large serving platters or wooden boards and dig in!

What’s on your list of favourites right now? Please let me know in the comments!

I hope you can find time to pop back on Sunday for the weekly Sundays Down Under linky Party!
