Gluten Free Mexican Turkey Scotch Eggs: 3ten.ca

Gluten free Mexican turkey scotch eggs are today’s recipe here at 3ten. Did you watch the last season of MasterChef? Well, a few weeks back they had a picnic episode and they had to make scotch eggs. My husband was like ‘oh, those look so good!’ Challenge accepted. The next day I ran some errands and picked up some ground turkey and some gluten free rice ‘breadcrumbs’. My goal on this recipe is to put my own little twist on it.

Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 2 chives finly chopped
  • 1/2 a cup of gluten free flour
  • 1/2 a cup of rice ‘breadcrumbs’
  • 2 teaspoons of tex-mex spice
  • 1 cup canola oil

First, gather all of your ingredients.

Get a pot full of cold water and place 5 eggs in the cold water bath. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 1/2 minutes once the water starts to boil.

While the eggs are cooking, let’s get the turkey ready. In a bowl mix the turkey with the chopped chives and half of the tex-mex spice.

Next, lay out your bowls. In one, gluten free flour. The next, the last egg, raw – whisk. In the last bowl the gluten free rice ‘breadcrumbs’. In the breadcrumbs, mix in the other 1 teaspoon of tex-mex spice.

Once the eggs are done cooking – cool and peel. Now, it’s time to cover them. Follow these steps:

  1. Roll the egg in flour
  2. Grab 1/5 of the meat and make a patty in your hand
  3. Place the egg in the centre of the patty
  4. Work the meat around the egg
  5. Roll the meat covered egg in flour
  6. Roll the meat covered egg in the raw egg
  7. Coat the egg in the rice ‘breadcrumbs’

Time to cook.

Heat the canola oil in a pan. Be prepared, this will make a bit of a mess – see how splattered my stove is? Well, it got a good cleaning after, that’s for sure.

Cook for about 2 minutes per side. I turned them every 2 minutes and cooked on all 6 sides.

Sewing: Week Thirty Nine: Flower Runner

September 25, 2016 |  by  |  Sewing, Tutorials  |  No Comments

Flower Runner: 3ten.ca

Flower runner this weekend to finish off week thirty nine of 52 weeks of sewing. Can you believe that next week is week 40? Then only 12 more weeks. That’s only 13 more projects! I better pick wisely. This table runner matches the broadcloth napkins I made a few weeks ago and the beautiful placemats I made last weekend. Such a nice little set. Not too fall and not too spring, just right.

Let’s get sewing!

What you need

  • 2 pieces of fabric 30 inches by 13 inches
  • matching thread
  • serger
  • rotary cutter
  • cutting mat
  • ruler
  • pins
  • iron
  • fray check
  • machine

First, pick out your fabric and ensure it’s a heavy enough weight to act as a runner. This beautiful flower pattern will make for a great flower runner.

Cut out the fabric using your rotary cutter, mat, and ruler. I serged each edge to prevent fraying while I was working with the fabric, yet it’s an extra step – you pick.

Lay right sides together and serge – be sure to leave a 2 inch hole so you can turn the runner right side out.

Before you turn it right side out, press the flower runner. Clip off the tails on each corner and fray check them to ensure they don’t unravel.

Once you turn your runner right side out, pin the hole close and iron again. Then, top stitch all around the runner and be sure you close the opening. I use glass pins so I can iron right over them – just a tip!

Done. How great does it look? The runner is ready for dinner.

This runner is quick and easy to make, yet the trick is to pair it with placemats or napkins. Then, you’ve got a great little gift. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon.

Travel: Riding Bikes in Siem Reap

Riding Bikes in Siem Reap: 3ten.ca

Riding bikes in Siem Reap is so much fun. It’s a challenge, don’t get me wrong, to navigate the speedy mopeds, tuk-tuks, and cars, yet it’s exciting, too.

These are our top of the line bikes. Our hotel, Hima Boutique, got them for us on our second full day in Siem Reap. They had them ready to go at 7 am and we used them all day long. The cost – 2$ each. Talk about cheap. They each came with a lock and a light which is energized when you pedal. So smart.

Notice the baskets? My favourite part!

We took a ride down the main street and then onto the highway towards the lake. We didn’t quite make it to the lake, it was far too hot.

Stopping to take pictures of cows. They are so skinny! With the hot summers there isn’t a lot of rain and as such not much grows. Thus, the cows don’t eat a lot until after the rain starts. I couldn’t believe how skinny they were, really. Poor guy.

Time for ice cream. Bryce having fun with our phone, snapping candid photos.

Okay, this video is a bit choppy since Bryce took it while riding his bike. You will get to see how busy and unorganized the street is, though. Be aware – use arm signals. Bryce for sure made fun of me, but twice my signals prevented a moped from running us over.

That’s us – riding bikes in Siem Reap. So fun.

Riding Bikes in Siem Reap: 3ten.ca

Overall, riding bikes in Siem Reap is the way to go. Not only is it cheap, but it’s fun and you’ll get to experience way more than if you’re just on a tuk-tuk. We took wrong turns and came across moped ‘gangs’ hanging out in hair salons and found awesome markets with super snacks.

Thanks for visiting – see you again soon.
