The Middlesbrough “Parmo”

INTRODUCING THE MIDDLESBROUGH “PARMO”

The Parmo Recipeteeside

Think Middlesbrough, think Teesside – get your head into the culture of delicious Parmo’s before you begin on the parmo recipe!

smogs

Time for some shopping. Buy the key ingredients for your Parmo – fillet of pork, or chicken breast. Cheddar-cheese, 1 egg, half a cup of breadcrumbs and – for the Bechamel suace – milk, butter, a bay leaf, plain flour and an onion. ( I use “colmans 4 cheese sauce mix)  pork

Take one strip of pork fillet, bash the hell out of it until flat and thin with a kitchen hammer.

beatenegg

Evenly coat the Parmo in beaten egg-yolk and breadcrumbs ready for deep frying.

deepfry

Deep-fry the Parmo in oil until cooked through and brown on each side.

bechamelsauce

The bechamel sauce – basically a classic white sauce. Heat milk and simmer for 5 mins on a low heat with a bay leaf and onion – add flour – season with salt/pepper. Or use a ready made jar of the sauce. Pour over the cooked Parmo.

cheese

Despite its name, the best cheese to use on top of a Parmo is actually Cheddar. Parmesan cheese tends to burn too easily and go brown when heated under the grill when placed on top of a Parmo.

addcheese

Add Cheddar-cheese to the top of the Parmo, heat it under a grill until the cheese is melted.

serve

Serve the finished Middlesbrough Parmo with chips or salad.

    • “someone getting my shopping” now that’s a joke !!! a support worker failed to call today to go to Morrison’s.
      only a young boy knocked at my door today. He offered to clear the snow away from my front, for £2.

  4. You may rest assured Kenny that there is no danger of my failing to remember that you are not a well man. You have made remarkable progress in a very short space of time but I have not lost sight of the fact this is still very early days for you. As always I wish you a full and speedy recovery. Stay warm and take good care especially on your visits to Freemans in this cold winter weather.

    • I have an appointment this afternoon at the Freeman’s. but the roads are that bad, I don’t know if I shall make it. snow, ice and accidents shall make for a slow journey me thinks 😦

      • So did you make it to Freeman’s I wonder? If so I hope all went as it should have done and that your journey’s to and fro were not too arduous. Your ice and snow has finally arrived down S with a vengence making Huskies and snow spikes the most appealing way to get to work and with temp’s plummeting to -8deg’s tonight a few snow ploughs might be in order by morning. Take care and tuck up safe and cozy indoors, and let Cherno take care of the ice and the snow outdoors for you. Timid one.

        • no …did not make it to Freeman’s, so it has been another boring day of doing nothing, going nowhere and nodding off in front of the fire. “OH” Cherno never sleeps outside, far too cold for him. Regardless of his double layered fur coat.

          • That is unfortunate and no doubt very frustrating, but in these trecherous conditions better you’re at safe at home in front of the fire than back in hospital with hypothermia and an array of broken limbs. After all you’re continuing recovery and return to full strength is the top priority. So relax and go with the flow. I am sure Cherno doesn’t sleep outside. That is a lifestyle choice few dog owners would entertain for their K9 companion/s. Whilst with the right provisions in place it can work just fine, and the dog/s be just as happy as their indoor counterparts, it doesn’t work for everyone. Now…hug up with Cherno snug and cozy in front of that fire…Timid one

      • I love the gorgeous Rooster graphic Sir Kenny!!!
        When the kids come over they let Kady (my dog buddy) lick their legs, they roll up their pants even. It is funny because it is like a massage. She does my feet when I take my shoes off. I know it grosses some out, but it feels soooooooo good. We all love it. That is what you need for your legs…a Kady licking…LOL.
        Stay warm and snuggly up to that fire…that is what I am going to do soon. Sweet dreams zzzzzzzzzzz
        warm feathery hugs,
