It's the start of a new week which means it's time to figure out what to cook.
It's nearly Easter, so we're craving homely dishes that we think everyone who joins our table this week will enjoy. This list, based on dishes we've been posting on the site lately, is jam-packed with dishes that we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think!
Treat yourself this week with a delicious homemade burger. If you read our back to basics guide to beef mine then you know exactly how versatile this ingredient is. This recipe from Cook's Academy calls for pancetta, bacon and other garnish, but you can add whatever you prefer – we love a fried egg and some black pudding on top! Get the recipe here.
We love this dish from The Three Qs in Greystones. It's a great make-ahead dish, as you can par-cook everything, then just finish it off in the oven with the cheese for about ten minutes. If you're not too fond of sweet potatoes, you could try to use tomatoes and peppers instead. Get the recipe here.
Irish seafood is some of the best in the world, so utilise it in this recipe from Michael's of Mount Merrion. This is a real sharing dish, so share it with a few friends over a bottle of wine. Click here for the recipe.
Bank holiday weekends are made for leisurely brunch, so whip up a batch of these scones to enjoy. You can customise the flavour in whatever way takes your fancy, so get creative – we love orange zest with flaked almonds, cheese and chive or classic sultanas. Try out the recipe here.
If you're in charge of dessert this Easter, you can't go wrong with a batch of brownies. This recipe from Mary Bulfin uses a combination of different chocolates for an intense, rich flavour, while the shot of booze in the topping gives classic brownies a grown-up twist. Click here for the recipe.
