Want a quick, nutritious, invariably popular, lowGI(for dieters) lunch?

North Staffs oatckes. You grill them and fill with whatever you fancy (we like melted cheese in this house but could have tuna/mayo, ham and mustard or even jam), roll them up like a pancake et voila! They freeze really well. In stock at Sainsbos if you are ot in the Potteries.

how very Regionalist

Not really, only like saying croissants are nice and you don't have to be in France for them!
I live in Worcs, anyway! (grew up in Stoke though)
Bit of a problem for Oz, i concede...

What are they? They're obviously not the sort of oatcakes we've got cos you'd have to be Paul Daniels to roll those up as they're biscuity things!

They are soft, like pancakes, and about the same size. But made with oatmeal flour as well as wheat flour. Taste sort of nutty. I recommend them most heartily. (Praps I'll bring some to the next worc meet up!)

They sound nice -I'll have to look out for them when next shopping. I get bored of bread.

oh lovely.

Cheese, with bacon or sausage is favourite for me.

And local shops' produce (very regionalist, lol) are far superior to the supermarket version imvho.

Obviously only of use if you're in the right area, hehe.

Ooh, I've been looking for something other than bread/pitta for lunchboxes - will they be OK if made in morning and eaten at lunchtime?? We avoid wraps because they get a bit soggy but something oaty & Northern might have a bit more staying power!!!

sassy Tue 27-Feb-07 14:39:12

Hmmmm, don't know. They are really best eaten hot you see.

unknownrebelbang Tue 27-Feb-07 14:43:59

They would be fine cold......but I don't think they'd last that long, lol.

CanSleepWeirdShifts Tue 27-Feb-07 14:46:09

Do they have any dairy products in them?

junkinmytrunk Tue 27-Feb-07 14:46:41

Can't stand the things!!!!!!!!!! (dh is a stokie)

You need fruit pikelets..gorgeous!

CanSleepWeirdShifts Tue 27-Feb-07 14:52:24

Just searched online for them and my store obviously don't stock them anyway - are they only in your area? My parents are in Worcs though, so could ask them to get some to bring down if they are dairy free.

CanSleepWeirdShifts Tue 27-Feb-07 14:53:04

Ah, just reread your OP, and you did say only Sains in Potteries, sorry.

So if you're in Worcs, where do you get them from?

junkinmytrunk Tue 27-Feb-07 14:55:36

If you have to eat them.....dh says this is the best shop in s-o-t

sassy Tue 27-Feb-07 14:56:36

No , was a typo in the OP. Should read in stock at Sainsbos if you are not in the Potteries. (Mylocal Sains is Kidderminster if that is near your folks).

Just checked and they do contain milk though, sorry.

CanSleepWeirdShifts Tue 27-Feb-07 14:58:19

Ah well, no use to me at the moment then anyway. Nevermind, will bear them in mind if/when dd outgrows her intolerance or I stop bf'ing her.

unknownrebelbang Tue 27-Feb-07 15:01:14

Fruit pikelets are lovely too (might have to buy some tomorrow, lol).

PrisonerCellBlockAitch Tue 27-Feb-07 15:07:45

here's a recipe they sound like oatmeal pancakes, really. which sounds yum.

CanSleepWeirdShifts Tue 27-Feb-07 15:17:21

I bloody love you Aitch .

PrisonerCellBlockAitch Tue 27-Feb-07 15:36:10

You know they're really just porridge pancakes, CSWS.
