Footy food is basically anything you need to eat with your hands that is quick and easy to both prepare and eat with the minimum of fuss and clean up. Tonight I used cheerios, Coon cheese, puff pastry and potato gems.

Ingredients
  • 6 cheerios
  • 4 slices Coon cheese
  • Coon cheese (grated)
  • 1 sheet Puff pastry
  • 12 potato gems
  • 1 egg (beaten)
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, add the cheerios and cover with cold water. Bring the water to the boil and turn off the heat for 4 minutes. Drain and allow the cheerios to cool so you can pick them up with your fingers.

  2. On a sheet of puff pastry cut four even quarters and in the middle of each piece lay a slice of Coon cheese. Place a cheerio on the cheese at one end and roll the pastry to wrap the cheerio. Use egg wash to seal the pastry.

  3. Place the rolls on baking paper on a baking tray and on the remaining free space add the potato gems. Sprinkle grated coon cheese over everything.
  4. Put all this in an oven at 200 ˚C for 30 minutes.
  5. Serve with dead horse (tomato sauce) or barbeque sauce.
  6. Eat with your fingers and enjoy the game.

Questions and answers

What are cheerios?

Check out the glossary to the aforementioned blog post

Why do you like rugby league?

It’s simply the greatest game of all. It is a game that requires true skill, stamina and strength. The tackles are honestly brutal and while the force of impact in American football may be greater, in rugby league there is no body armour and the players stay on the field and play can be continuous for without a break unless there is a penalty or infringement or a team has scored. Unlike the stop and start nature of American football. Strength, stamina and skill are essential ingredients to Rugby League.

What are some other words peculiar to older Queenslanders?

Peanut paste, not peanut butter because it doesn’t contain real (dairy) butter. 

Ports rather than school bags which we put on racks. 

Togs rather than swimmers or bathers.

Potato scallops, well there is no other sensible word. Victorians have know idea.

Queensland nuts rather than Macadamia. The word Macadamia is the genus which consists of three common species of nut native to south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. It is not native to Hawaii as some people seem to think.
