British Bites: Oat-Stuffed Chicken Legs

This quick chicken dish is a more modern variation of the Scottish preparation sometimes called howtowdie, which features a whole chicken stuffed with oats and served over spinach and poached eggs. Here, I've use exclusively chicken legs and added some quickly sautéed mushrooms to the oat filling. Serve it with some roasted vegetables and a dollop of good mustard for a satisfying, simple supper. More

Oatcakes

Though these oat-based yeast pancakes may appear lacy and delicate, they're actually quite satisfying and substantial. They're traditionally stuffed with savory ingredient like eggs, sausage, and ham, but they can also be loaded with syrup and filled with jam. More

Arugula, Salmon, and Leek Tart

We're starting to get into the season of fantastic greens, and this recipe calls for one of my favorites. Arugula (also known as rocket) is prepared in two ways—chopped and quickly cooked with leeks for the tart filling, as well as lightly dressed and served on top, adding its characteristic bright, bitter flavor to an otherwise rich, creamy dish.

Beef, Ale, and Marmite Pie

We have reached the end of May, and with it, the last dish of Marmaggedon. This recipe celebrates Marmite's salty, savory flavor in the form of ale-stewed beef wrapped in flakey pastry. It makes a hearty, filling dinner but could just as easily go along on a picnic as a chilled dish, instead. More

Cheddar-Marmite Scones

As we enter our fourth week of Marmageddon, we'll be delving into the world of baking. Most people enjoy their Marmite on some toast with butter, so we were confident that adding the salty spread to some cheddar-studded scones would hit the spot. These small cakes are simple and deeply savory, begging to be slathered in even more Marmite and butter. More

British Bites: Coddled Eggs with Marmite Mushrooms

We're going to call the month of May Marmageddon—each week this month, British Bites will feature a recipe using one of the most polarizing ingredients in the British culinary arsenal: Marmite! If you're one of those poor souls who has yet to embrace Marmite, I'm sorry. I sincerely hope that Marmageddon inspires you to bring this brown paste home and give it a shot. First up: coddled eggs with mushrooms and Marmite. More
