Now this, is a very interesting thread, which I'm going to bookmark and follow closely!

Portugal is home of a great gastronomy, with lots f yummy food, from sweets to main dishes, with great cheeses and great enchidos.

Don't have much time right now to look (and translate!) for some recipes, but I'll do it soon. For now, I just want to leave you guys with some photos of our conventual sweets.
meh - as a student many years ago , one of my favourite foods was 'Poor Mans Pizza'


Basically bread, tomato puree, cheese, and any other topping required - when I was a student it was worcester sauce and that was it...

Toast one side of your bread under the grill.
Turn bread over , liberally apply your tomato puree.
Add your grated cheese (and any other topping) and sprinkle a dash of Worcester sauce to give bite.
Return to grill until cheese has melted.

et voila - poor mans pizza

Not the most complicated of recipes I grant you, but by god its tasty after a night out on the beer and you cant afford the proper Pizza....

i been collecting dutch oven recipes for charcoal cooking with a Volcano Grill recently acquired. Came across this recipe/video for Squirrel and Beans (or treerats and tooters) cooked on open fire. i wouldn't mind the squirrel, but wouldn't eat that dish for the mass-market poison ridden ingredients.

You must be from Louisiana.

Nachos:
Grab a bag of chips (Tostito chips brand is preferable)
Grab a can of Mission Queso (because above brand can not make good queso)
Dip and enjoy.

There you go, American Nachos.
A little sth from me. The dish is called ‘plendze’ and basically I'm talking about regular pancakes but made from potato pulp. It is very simple, cheap and quick to prepare.

What you need:
- 2 kg. of potatoes
- 1 onion
- 1 egg
- 2 big spoons of flour
- oil for frying
- salt, pepper

You peel potatoes and onion and grate them fine - for this I usually use juicer machine. Mix potato/onion juice and pulp, add egg, flour, salt and pepper. Mix everything. Heat oil on frying pan, put say 2 big spoons on pan, form a flat crumpet and fry it both sides until it gets bronze color (see attached picture).

You can eat it on many ways - I prefer them with sugar and sour cream on it...

EDIT: Why my attached photo disappeared? It was here, I edited post and now it is gone It OK, reatached but it is a forum bug

Looks very similar to German Reibeplätzchen, although I don't think I've ever put flour in mine. We generally eat ours with apple sauce.

Yea, it is pretty much the same. I think that adding flour is important only for getting a proper consistency of the mass so it is not really necessary if the mass is not too watery. But I never ate them with apple sauce – and because my mother in law gave me few jars of her home-made apple sauce – I’ll try next time Reibeplätzchen with apple and you should try them with Sauersahne und Zucker :-)

Yep, will definitely have to try that. Is that salsa in that photo or some kind of tomato bruschetta with peppercorns?

According to the page I took picture from - girls prepared 4 sauces: garlic sauce, tzatziki sauce, mexican a'la salsa and hungarian Lecsó from paprika. They don't mention details.

Yeah potato pancakes are another thing we'd eat all the time. I love those too
