Brilliant Bonfire Night Recipes



We love celebrating Bonfire Night; it might be a chilly November evening but that doesn’t stop us huddling around the fire to watch the fireworks. Plus when you celebrate by inviting friends and family over for a Bonfire Night party, it’s a great excuse to serve up some delicious hearty food that will warm you up from the cold. To give you plenty of time to join in the festivities and not miss out on all the sparkler twirling, we’ve got three easy recipes that your guests will love. They’re hassle-free to make using the Morphy Richards Compact Sear & Stew slow cooker and the Morphy Richards Soup & Milk Maker.

Winter Broth


2 tbsp olive oil
75g minced lamb
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
1 carrot
1 potato
1 turnip
1 tbsp plain flour
900ml water
2 lamb stock cubes
400g tin of lentils
½ tsp rosemary
2 bay leaves
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp parsley
Pinch of salt 
Pinch of pepper

Cooking time: 50 minutes, Serves: 4

While you and your guests are huddled round the fire, warm your mitts with a hearty mug of winter broth. Serving up a batch is easy and hassle free with the Morphy Richards Soup and Milk Maker. It’s as easy as frying off the mince, finely chopped veg and herbs before adding to the soup maker jug along with the stock and cooking on the chunky auto setting.  You can find all the step-by-step instructions on the Morphy Richards Cook & Create App (recipe listed under Soup Maker).

BBQ Pulled Chicken


4 medium or 3 large chicken breasts
400g BBQ sauce (shop bought)
6.3g paprika
6.3g chilli powder
Pinch of pepper

Cooking time: 6 hours, Serves: 4-5

Try something new for your Bonfire Night feast and serve up delicious BBQ pulled chicken instead of the more traditional hot dog. A generous helping of slow-cooked BBQ chicken is excellent served in a bread roll topped with a spoonful of coleslaw. To make, simply cook all of the ingredients listed above on a low heat in the Morphy Richards Compact Sear & Stew slow cooker for 6 hours – leaving you with plenty of time to get the bonfire lit and plan a firework display that will wow your neighbours. Get the full instructions on the Morphy Richards Cook & Create App (available on iTunes and Google Play).

Rice Pudding


40g unsalted butter
150g pudding rice
150g sugar
1.5l milk
Pinch of grated nutmeg

Cooking time: 4 hours 15 minutes, Serves: 6

A classic cold-weather dessert, dishing up a generous portion of rice pudding is a special way to round off the Bonfire Night festivities. Make your own batch by adding all the ingredients to the Morphy Richards Compact Sear & Stew slow cooker then cooking for 4 hours on a high setting. The full method is listed on the Morphy Richards Cook & Create App which is free to download. For an indulgent Bonfire Night twist, try stirring in melty, toasted marshmallows to each serving of rice pudding. If you’re not having your own fire at home, try topping each serving with marshmallows then placing under the grill to get the tasty toasted effect.
