Spider Pep Dogs


  • 6 Peperami sticks (a mixture of your choice) 
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry (room temperature) 
  • 1 egg 
  • Edible googly eyes (for the spooky effect)  
  • Salt and Pepper 

Step 1

Turn your oven to 180C to preheat and line a baking tray with parchment.

Step 2

Using a sharp knife, slice your Peperami in half (lengthways) and then in half again and then again. You should have 6 slithers of Peperami (for the spider legs)

Step 3

Cut your puff

pastry into 2.5in strips and
place your 6 Peperami spider legs at the short end of the pastry strip closest to you and roll it 2-3 times (the dough should wrap the Peperami but with the ends on each side sticking out just like spider legs)
Step 4
Using an egg wash, brush over the pastry and then season.

Step 5

Wrap the spider legs in tin foil so they don’t overcook whilst the puff pastry is cooking and put in the oven for 20 minutes or until the pastry is nice and golden.

Sprinkle the inside with your seasoning and leave to the side. 


In a bowl, mix your mascarpone, emmental, cheddar and your chopped spinach and spring onions until fully combined and stuff the mixture into your pumpkins, pressing down as you go to get as much as you can in.

@at_dads_table’s Chow Mein

I’m really missing takeaways at the moment, especially Chinese. When Peparami challenged me to cook one of the nations favourite takeaways using some of their tasty products I jumped at the chance and opted for a chow mein, made healthy with lots of extra veg of course!

As the meat in the dish I’m using some sliced up Peparami smoked pork sausage which goes really with some of the flavours here. For added vitamins I’m using wholegrain noodles, pepper, onion, garlic, cashew nuts, carrots, mushrooms, sweetcorn, peas and sesame seeds, making this not only jam packed full of flavour, but healthy too.

So, slice a few Peparami sausages

thinly and cook for 3 minutes in a little sesame oil. Set aside then in the same pan cook first cashew nuts for a few minutes then onion and garlic and then add thinly sliced carrots and pepper followed by a good handful each of sliced mushrooms, frozen sweetcorn and peas. Cook some wholegrain noodles as per the packet instructions then add to the pan along with the Peparami, two tablespoons of soy sauce and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Cook for a further 3 minutes then serve topped with sesame seeds and sliced spring onion

Story 1 (Vegetables cooking)

I’m working with Peparami to recreate one of the nations favourite takeaways, chow mein!
First up, cook all of your favourite veg on a high heat

Story 2 (my son stirring)

Add in the sliced Peparami and stir well before returning to the heat

Story 3 (final dish)

Peperami Bonfire Night Recipes

Oi Oi Meatheads, Animal here – or as I’m known on Bonfire Night, Guy Porks.

As you’ve been so great munching my meat all year, I’ve come up with a Bonfire Night treat for you to try! This fiery recipe is the perfect dish to warm you up when you’re out watching the fireworks. So, give it a go at home to ensure the night goes off with a BANG!

Fire in the Hole

There aren’t many things you can’t do with a sausage – eat ‘em, use ‘em as javelins in a roast dinner-themed Olympics, and of course, use them to rustle up some SMASHING Bonfire Night recipes. Which is exactly what I’ve done.

On this night of fireworks, I’ve harnessed the raw firepower of my Peperami Firestick. I’ve baked them into a traditional Yorkshire pudding to create an alternative Toad in the Hole, which I’ve christened ‘Fire in the Hole’. Be careful though, it’s not for wimps!


Ingredients –

4 ready made Yorkshire puddings

4 Peperami Firesticks, cut into 3

8 tbsp onion gravy

4 pea size pieces white fondant icing

4 rice grain pieces black fondant icing

Method –

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, fan 180C, gas mark 6.
  2. Place the Yorkshire puddings onto an oven tray and pop the Peperami into the puddings.
  3. Place into the oven to heat for 3-5 minutes until hot through.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the onion gravy.
  5. Roll the white icing into 8 oval balls.
  6. Roll the black icing into 8 tiny balls and gently press onto the middle of the white balls.
  7. Brush the back of the “eye” with a tiny bit of egg and stick into the Peperami.
  8. Spoon the onion gravy into the pudding and serve straightaway.

  • 60g ready rolled shortcrust pastry, cut into 1cm thick strips

Peperami Recipes: Special Mac ‘N’ Cheese

We’re back with another Peperami recipe, and this time it’s a twist on a classic. Mac ‘n’ Cheese is a true staple. Happy… sad… hungover… it’s the perfect meal for all occasions. But you know me, I’m all for a bit of meat, and making a Mac’ with only cheese doesn’t quite cut the mustard. I want all the trimmings, all the toppings, and of course a whole lot of Peperami in the mix.

So, we’ve created the ultimate, special Mac ‘n’ Cheese. It’s got (almost) all of the food groups – carbs, check. Dairy, check. Fruit? Tomatoes are a fruit. Protein? OOH YEAH. Veg? I’m not entirely sure what that is. Whip this up with minimal effort and feel like a proper master chef.


Serves 4

Main ingredients
250g macaroni spirals
2-3 Peperami (flavour of your choice) sliced in 3 mm slices
10 cherry tomatoes cut into quarters

For the sauce

  • 1 pint of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of plain flour
  • 40g butter
  • 2 garlic clove crushed
  • 150g mature cheddar
  • 1 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Extra grated cheese for the top


1. Cook the macaroni as per instructions on the packet.

2. Whilst the macaroni is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan on a low heat. Once melted stir in the flour and continue stirring for 1 minute.

3. Add the milk gradually and whisk continuously until you have a nice thick sauce. This should take about three minutes.

4. Stir in the grated cheese, crushed garlic, Dijon mustard and season with black pepper and a little salt.

5. Drain the macaroni and put into a large ovenproof dish. Pour over the cheese sauce, add the sliced Peperami and cherry tomatoes and stir until well mixed.

6. Add a little grated cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 180̊ C.

Want to make it extra special?

Add chopped spinach leaves, sweet corn, cooked peas or cooked mushrooms for some extra green and leafy vegetable goodness.

AND for a crunchy topping, mix the grated cheese with bread crumbs made from two pieces of bread

Now that’s what we call special Mac ‘n’ Cheese.
