    Default Suggestions for Hogmany meal?

    Having a few friends round on Hogmany for a meal and would like some suggestions/recipes for something different and unusual to cook for them. Will be turkey'd out by then, so looking for something a bit adventurous yet not too complicated.


    They are all meat eaters, and are a pretty eclectic bunch.

    TIA.

    Apparently it is nectar for the scots, deep fried pizza, or as you so eloquently put it, coronary waiting to happen

    Yeh, think they'll be looking for something with a bit more exerted effort, although they know me well, so perhaps I could get away with it.

    Coca Cola ribs! Seriously it really works and is brilliant! I did a few racks at a BBQ in the summer. Everyone scoffed them an remarked how good they were.

    BBQ Ribs


    This recipe sounds goofy, but believe me, it works. Follow these steps for tender, juicy, delicious ribs.
    Time Required: Only 15 minutes for prep and 15 minutes to grill, but requires overnight marinating and at least four hours of unsupervised cooking


    Ingredients:

    • Enough ribs to feed your crowd
    • Canned Coca-Cola (not diet)
    • Your favorite BBQ Sauce
    • Garlic, salt, pepper, chopped red chilli

    Steps:

    • Place the ribs in a baking dish and pour Coca Cola in with the ribs until they are covered. Add BBQ sauce and spices.
    • Allow the ribs to marinate overnight.
    • Slow cook the ribs in the Coca Cola in an oven at 200 degrees for at least 4 hours. Make sure you cover the ribs to avoid burning them.
    • Remove the ribs from the oven. Be careful, the meat may fall off the bone.
    • Reduce coca cola sauuce mix by 1/2 over heat.
    • Place your ribs on the BBQ. Brush with sauce. Sprinkle Old Bay or Cajun seasoning over the ribs if desired (or mix the spice with the sauce before brushing for the best effect).
    • Serve and enjoy!!

    munchybox.


    alternatively, if any of the guests are not scottish, offal always goes down well at these things. If it's an all-sweatie event you'll have got over the haggis fixation years ago, so go out for a nice italian or something.

    edit: i like the sound of the ribs, actually.

    That idea of the munchy box aint too far off the mark really - if they are good friends then you want some food you put on the table that they just help themselves to rather then proportioned plates coming out of the kitchen. Easier for you and a lot more socialble, the ribs would work great as a starter for that.

    How unusual do you want to go? If you can get pumpkins try cauldron chicken, we do this with the pumpkins we grow, really nice

    Get a couple of haggis in, and do the right thing malphesius! A Hogmany meal deserves a good haggis.

    I did a type of meze/buffet style affair the last time the crowd was round. It is a lot easier and more sociable and they can come and go as they please throughout the night. Might opt for this again. Have the ribs as one of the dishes. Any suggestions for other smaller dishes then?

    Also thanks for the link, looks like a good source for recipes.

    If you are going to the ribs then why not do a winter BBQ? The stuff can be cooked in the oven so you dont need to venture outside but its a "back to summer" or "forward to summer" theme - suggest your friends come dressed for the occasion and bring 1 cocktail for everyone to try.

    Do some bread also, serve with cheeses, olives and pate.

    mmmm. Not so keen on a winter barbie idea I'm afraid GS. It'd just be heaps of meat cooked in the oven, no?

    Could be but you supplement it with roast pots and winter veg, fresh bread and cheeses as mentioned, winter salad, coleslaw etc etc. Perhaps do prawns as a starter if you wanted, some nice cakes for desert.
