We’ve seen countless videos and photos of people hoarding essentials, and I’m sure we’ve all witnessed first-hand the empty shelves of food in supermarkets.
This means, for some of us, we won’t always have the chance to get a hold of our favourite brands or the freshest produce, as they keep running low in stock.
For those of you struggling to create new and interesting recipes from the few instant food items that you’ve already stocked at home, this recipe is one interesting way to utilise frozen prata, frozen nuggets, a can of cream of mushroom as the main ingredients.
This baked casserole is satiating and takes less than 30 minutes to make, so gather your frozen food now, and let’s start working on this quick Chicken Nugget Roll-ups recipe!
Preparation time: 10 minutes; Cooking time: 20 minutes
Step 1: Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease casserole or baking tray with butter or cooking oil.
Step 2: Separate prata pieces and lay them flat. Lay two pieces of chicken ham down, followed by two pieces of nuggets, finished with a generous sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Carefully roll up the frozen prata and push it to one end of the tray or casserole.
Step 3: Repeat for the remaining 5 prata pieces.
Step 4: Once all the prata rolls are completed, pour out the cream of mushroom soup in a bowl and mix it together with the ½ cup of milk, till you get a smooth consistency.
Step 5: Pour the entire mixture into the casserole or baking tray so that it creates a moat around the rolls.
Optional: Dribble 6 – 8 tablespoons of salsa across all the prata rolls.
Step 6: Top everything off with more cheddar cheese.
Step 7: Place casserole or baking tray in the oven for 20 minutes, till the prata rolls turn flaky and dark brown.
Although the addition of salsa is optional, I highly recommend it; it added a punchy edge of heat, as well as a cut of acid to this rich, creamy dish.
Given the simplicity of this recipe, I would definitely repeat this for a quick weekday dinner, but perhaps I would change the chicken ham to something more peppery.
I would also pan-fry the prata slightly before rolling it up, just so that the underside of the roll was a little more cooked, but flavour-wise, this was really satisfying.
You’re more than welcome to add any and all kinds of leftover protein and vegetables, which makes this recipe versatile and useful in cleaning out the fridge if you’re afraid of hitting the expiry date on some of your produce.
