    Yup. We regular had cheese and potato pie. We were a bit hard up when young. But never went hungry. Cheese a potato pie would feed a family of five for about 40p.

    When I was a nipper I remember a family in our street, I went to school with one of the lads, he always took beef dripping sandwiches for school dinner and smelled of dripping, I got invited to go and have dinner with them and dinner consisted of beef dripping sandwiches, chips and gravy, must say I like a good beef dripping sandwich, but I found out why the whole family and the house smelled of dripping.

    Funny some of the things you remember.

    Still love corned beef slatherd with English mustard in my sarnies!

    As a kid always used to wipe some bread around the grill pan after cooking bacon - very tasty indeed.

    Afraid that spam fritters are still the stuff of school nghtmares - it still makes my stomach lurch remembering the amount of grease that oozed out when I sqaushed one with a fork (ironic i know given the bacon related point above:)).

    I like decent food but too but there's some staples that stay with you!

    I just searched gluten free spam fritters for you. No luck ditchy you just have to make do with fried spam which in my opinion is the best poor mans beef!

    Can anyone remember a finer poor mans beef which was a notch up from spam, if i can recall it was called ulster fry. It was thinner than spam fritters and you fried it, bloomin lovely it was, I can smell it now!

    As Mr Gain said above, spam fritters were a staple of our school dinners. Wednesday I think. Sitting in a steel tray under a heat lamp waiting for the dinner bell to ring didn't help their greasy deliciousness. :sick: Followed by (usually) spotted **** and that weird pink custard. 

    Mrs w takes the biscuit with her weird ways to use up leftovers. Cold shepherds pie sandwich is one of her faves.

    We have this quite often - second only to bubble and squeak - we almost crisp the cheese (medium cheese is best for crispin) and have it with Plum Tomatoes and Corned Beef.

    You can make your own spam fritters, gluten free, if you make the batter with either:-

    1. Cornflour, just mix with cold fizzy water and you get a really light crisp batter which works well with fish too.

    2. Chickpea flour or gram flour. Blend with an egg and milk - this makes a thicker batter, perfect for pancakes and I reckon would work well with Spam.

    On a bed of sliced onion so that the onion browns as the pork roasts and a few sliced mushrooms.

    a teaspoon of cornflour to thicken up the juices once it is cooked and a little stock.

    Serve with mashed potatoes and green veg.

    Roast pork belly - food of the gods

    I should have said that you take the pork out of the pan and let it rest whilst you put the roasting pan on the cooker top to make the gravy. Blend in the cornflour with the meat juices, add the stock, let it all bubble up and thicken, check the seasoning and Bob's your uncle!
