Going away in the van for a few days this weekend so I am trying out my new ridge monkey. Going for a cheesy pigs in blanket omelette toasty.

If I'm not back by the end of the weekend with photos you know it's been a disaster :LOL:

Well first use of the ridge monkey turned out pretty good even though I forgot I was supposed to be making a toastie.

So a cheesy pigs in blanket omelette it was and must say it was really nice. Didn't take as long as I expected for it all to cook either. 😋

Ah disappointing session on the ridge monkey tonight. Once again I over estimated how long it takes to cook stuff.

Tried steak with onions and mushrooms.

I thought I would cook the steak gently for a bit first on both sides before adding the roughly chopped onions and mushrooms. Turns out the steak didn't need near as much time so I should have just thrown everything in together.

As it turned out the steak was well over cooked after leaving it in for about 20-25 minutes on a low gas setting. Plus I didn't add near enough veg.

Admittedly still tasty but not as I usually prefer it. Lesson learned to try it again.

I've tried cooking sausages in it but if I put the lid down so as to reduce the smell then I get a lot of liquid, when I drained it to fry the sausages rather than boil them the sausages stuck and burnt.

Luckily I was only experimenting at home rather than in the van, what do other people do?

Sounds like you've got the old watery sausages problem. Ann likes the Irish recipe ones and they cook alright with a bit of oil 👍

Do you get them from anywhere special or can I find them in a regular supermarket?

I like to practice with my cooking gizmos at home before trying them out in the van, saves problems later!
