Mini kievs were nice

Do you remember little potato croquettes that had a bit of ketchup in the middle? You cooked them in the oven. I'm sure they were called 'Ketchups" but nothing online seems to point to them ever existing. I'm sure I had them multiple times when I was a kid. I've asked people at work but they've just stared at me as if i've got two heads. Please tell me I haven't imagined it? 

No you haven’t imagined it, as I remember them mate.  Don’t think they were great, as needed a bit of cooking I think to get them soft? Not that I was cooking them! I was probably watching Byker Grove or something. 

Seem to remember my mom serving them sometimes with weird “Dalepak steaks” ? Chinese rib flavour and minted lamb I think?  Findas crispy pancakes were great as well.

They were like rectangle shaped and then like ridged on the top? 

I used to love them as a kid, then cooked some as an adult and saw the amount of shit that came out of them and thought they might be a bit on the unhealthy side

yep, we all ate them, we all liked them, we all wished our mom had bought mini kievs instead

 

Abso *** lutely. Kiev night with curly fries and beans was a favourite in my house only trumped by toad-in-the-hole night. 

She tried to cook a tuna pasta bake once. She got the message when I left some care home leaflets lying around.

The ketchup used to be hotter than magma when you bit into the potato croquette.

Mini kievs, birdseye potato waffles and sweetcorn. Dinner of (child) kings. 

 

I'm not having the sweetcorn, funny stuff, I can eat it if someone gave it to me but would never pick it out of choice and even then 2 mouthfuls and I've had enough 

No way would I take them over beans

Was about the only vegetable i'd eat as a child... along with tinned carrots. Much more open to veg as an adult. 

Beans. Too messy. I like the taste but not the plate pollution they make. Even on a full English, I want them in a separate pot.

My Mrs has fish. Chips, mushy peas, curry sauce, pickled onion, picked egg but no gravy. Make of that what you will. 

All good. You wouldn't have gravy with curry sauce. She seems wise in the ways of haute cuisine.

Pickled onions are ace in the right place. Nice strong cheese or maybe a quality pork pie. Much nicer if you make them yourself.

With Fish and Chips, however, it’s a crime almost as heinous as gravy itself

It's the vinegar that makes it work. So first line definitely, agree second line - try it. Live a little :)
