Travels in tinned food: Fray Bentos pudding
Another entry in this series from the king of quick pies, Fray Bentos – this time with a suet pudding
A suet pudding? Yup. In the microwave? You better believe it, sonny Jim.
Yes, I am watching a Top Gear news compilation
I should also apologise for the wonky photography as I did this after enjoying a great many white wine spritzers. Not wise.
So Jesse, what's it like?
Well, it is a marvel really. Pop it in a microwave for three minutes and you get a piping hot steak and kidney pudding. Pull the ring pull bottom off, pop it on a plate, and watch it whirr away for three minutes. Serve it up with sides of your choice and bosh. Dinner.
The pudding is heavy and stodgy, like a suet pudding is supposed to be. The filling is actually not that bad considering what it is. It's flavourful and meaty, with a decent palate. Don't expect haute cuisine, it is something you just flung in a microwave for three minutes.
Would you buy it again?
Yes. I buy them all the time for easy and quick dinners, and they work well as a comforting treat.
Too much gravy? Can you have too much gravy?
