1. The less washing up, the better

This is a rustic dish of bangers in a rich onion sauce, cooked in the oven. Serve hot with crusty bread, roasted spuds or even polenta. It's a winner with Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans, and it's plain to see why.

2. Bread winner

This recipe will teach you the most respected of all life skills: how to make meltingly tender pork.

3. Crunch master

Kara-age is one of Adam Liaw's absolute favourites. Frying the chicken three times at high heat, with resting times in between, produces the crispiest skin ever.

4. Breakfast of champions

A mighty bacon and egg roll for those who got a little too loose on Friday night. (The homemade HP-style sauce makes it.)

A high-protein breakfast with egg and bacon could reduce snacking during the day.

5. There are people coming over? Uh-oh.

This is the kind of lamb roast you could make for a dinner party, even if you’re not one to hold such frivolous feasts. Comes with patatas bravas. Bravo.

6. If you need me, I'll be at the barbecue

Duncan Welgemoed (below), head chef at Bistro Dom in Adelaide, says this recipe for piri-piri chicken would feature in his last supper. Throw it on the barbecue and your work here is done.

7. Like Mama used to make

A good meatball is a thing of beauty. Tama Carey's pork and veal meatballs with chilli and lots of ricotta are unlike any other – delicate, fluffy, creamy as.

8. Steak. Want. Gimme.

9. Take it up a notch

SBS Online staffer Matt Costain says, "Pasta is a huge bloke meal. It’s just about all most guys can reliably cook for themselves." Ditch tonight's bolognese for a pappardelle with rabbit ragout?

10. No cutlery required

A great egg and bacon pie can't be topped (unless with an exceptional pea mash). If you like, use smoked chicken, pancetta or prosciutto in place of bacon. But you probably won't. #notjudging

11. A slice of the action

Look at this beast of a pizza with sausage and mascarpone! It uses fiery ’nduja, which is, essentially, a spreadable pork sausage. Yes, you read right: spreadable pork sausage.

12. Meat-and-potato man

Matthew Evans' fresh chorizo with fried potato speaks for itself. Gear up for that trademark paprika hit.

13. Think big

This pork belly curry from Austin Bush is found all over northern Thailand and, because it’s easy to make in large volumes, is often associated with communal eating. Steam some rice and invite the gang over.

14. The right stuffing

A spiced stuffing makes for an intensely flavoured Lebanese lamb roast. What are you possibly waiting for? Carve it up!

15. A little bit of kick

Watching the World Cup this weekend? Cajun fried chicken makes for great couch company.
