Merry meet to each of you again! In the following few entries, I’ll include some really great recipes for Mabon feasts. I’ve decided to span my recipes out over several days because I have so many I’d like to share that one entry just won’t suffice!
Today’s entry is all about the entreé. I’ve included some classic meat entreés, but I’ve also included vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, low-fat, low sodium, and entreés that take 30 minutes or less to make (for those of us who consistently lose track of time). I’ll also outline the herbs included in the recipes that are specifically Mabon herbs. :) Please be warned that none of these recipes are original— I’ve found them online and in cookbooks over the years. Enjoy! (Hint: Ctrl-F the key words you’re looking for!)
Classic Mabon Entreés

Here is a simple recipe for oatmeal bannocks:
1 cup oatmeal or rolled oatspinch of saltpinch of baking soda2 teaspoons melted butter2 tablespoons of hot water
Mix the rolled oats, salt and baking soda together.
Melt the butter and pour into the dried ingredients
Knead the ingredients together, adding water to reach the right consistency
Roll the dough out or shape it in the hands into a flat pancake, around 1cm thick.
Quarter the dough, and bake or fry.
Serve bannocks hot, with cheese and ham or bacon.
Bannocks were traditionally cooked on a griddle, a flat iron pot placed over the fire.
[Fox’s note: This is the recipe I used the first time I made them (for a Beltane celebration). It’s very simple and inexpensive, and it turned out really well! Add a bit of shredded cheese or brown sugar or something like that to give it a little extra flavor]
You mean like bannocks? Oh man, I LOVE those! I make them all the time. They’re nummy and very filling. My partner doesn’t care for them, but not everyone loves everything, so whatever. Haters gonna hate. I’ll look for an awesome bannock recipe to post!
