So this is just an idea, not sure if it's been baked or not,
but I sure as hell hope it hasn't.
I'm doing this assessment at Secondry School for a Food
tech course and we have to make some new innovative
food product, the assessment inclues using a variety of
planning tools to come
to an idea, and then find a way to
get a rough idea of what the general public thinks of the
idea. In my case, the general public is the Half-bakery
So here's my idea;
It's meatloaf, but it's not cooked in a square/rectangular
tin. Instead, it's circular, well, it's cylindrical in shape,
is half cooked before being rolled in pastry and finished
off. So it's a bit like a sausage roll, but with a meatloaf
style centre, this includes a traditional topping of rolled
oats and tomato sauce which will go between the meat
There's also another idea I had, I work in a theatre so I
don't have much time for dinner, so something quick and
easy is crucial. usually I go out and get a kebab from the
turkish restaurant down the road, but thats a bit
expensive and can take a while depending on the time
day, not to mention weather. So maybe a shaved
lamb/chicken pie? or Pizza maybe?
It's basically just a pizza/pie with some shaved lamb or
chicken, or beef, or all three for those that are a tad
adventurous, then a selection of sauces and other
Still working on other fillings :P
Cheers guys :)

I suggest you work on this product instead. You could make posters showing celebrities/political figures frothing at the mouth. Remember: this is colorful froth! [bungston, May 08 2012]

||//half cooked before being rolled in pastry// OK, to start off with, this appears to be a recipe - which is, in general, not a target category of the halfbakery (see the "help" link, over on the left, under "meta").
||But all that aside, when you're cooking breadish stuff with meat stuff, the side of the breadish part that is meatward ends up gooey and uncrusted. It can't come completely out of the dough state until it dries; it can't dry in contact with the meat (unless the meat has gone into some inedible state). Normally, a calzone or meat pie or burrito or niku-man or whatever will allow the bread to have a dry side so you can at least get it mostly cooked. "Rolled in" makes me think you're talking enclosed bread (I could be getting the wrong image here) and that makes me think enclosed goo.
||If the breadish part is entirely outside, then it becomes exceedingly comparable to many common foods worldwide.
||Meat pie? LAHMAJOON! My ancestors/culture I partly grew up in (Armenian) invented this way before you.

||This would be a great thing to throw some weaved bacon around. Because everything's better with bacon...
||The Italians make *stuffed breads* with a wide variety of fillings. (rolled)[see link]
These are not the same as a calzone, which is still dough with fillings.

just add a paragraph explaining how the

||@ Lurch, this is not a recipe as such, it's an idea. I
don't have any real intention of putting this into
production. it's just something I'm doing for a
school project :P And thanks for the tag xandram.
really appreciate that.
||@those who think that it's similair to some
armenian dish, or italian; I have no intention of
copying any dish. and I never said bread, only ever
pastry, which is very different to bread. the pastry

good addition, maybe something with bacon and

your name is extremely familiar! Not sure why
though, anyway. back on topic.
It is indeed not a recipe, as I haven't specified any
ingrediants or their quantaties.
if somehow this did get implmented into a mass-
produced product, it would have to undergo a fair
bit of trouble-shooting and testing, not to

bored of the limited options of food that I have access too.
After a while, a standard pie becomes boring, so does a Turkish kebab once you've exhausted all the combinations of
meat and sauce.
