4 weekend recipes for easy entertaining

Weekend entertaining calls for effortless recipes that can be whipped up in no time at all, with quality Tesco Finest ingredients. From Friday night to brunch on Saturday and even Sunday lunch, these are simple yet special dishes for groups of four that are sure to impress without any stress.

  1. Eggs and sourdough soldiers

    The stars of the show in this spin on a breakfast classic are Tesco Finest Free Range Bluebell Araucana Golden Yolk Eggs with their pastel-blue shells and rich golden yolks. Simply boil to runny perfection. The toast? It’s got to be thick Tesco Finest White Sourdough Loaf with its tangy flavour and fluffy texture. Toast until crunchy, slice into soldiers, spread with salty butter, and tell everyone to get dipping.

  2. Roast pork loin with perfect crackling

    Sunday lunch wouldn’t be Sunday lunch without a cracking centrepiece. Luckily, this simply delicious recipe using Tesco Finest Salt Aged Pork Loin Joint requires minimum effort for maximum impact, while using our secret rub to create perfect crackling. Why not team with glazed Tesco Finest Rainbow Carrots with rosemary gremolata for a sweet and zesty side? Plus, there’s even a fancy gravy to serve alongside, making this a winter winner everyone will love.

  3. Butternut squash and sage pasta

    After a hard week, the last thing anyone wants to do is spend hours in the kitchen, but hosting loved ones still requires something that looks like you have. Luckily, we’ve got just the thing. This butternut squash and Tesco Finest Gigli sage pasta recipe takes under an hour from start to finish – most of it is hands-off as the squash roasts in the oven – and requires ingredients you’ve probably already got. A comforting bowl of joy.
