From my kitchen to yours

Finally I have enough time to write and translate my recipes. It was hard to write it down, because is one of those things you do almost without thinking, but here they are:




Ham & Cheese Quiche

2 chopped onion
1/2 chopped red pepper
2-3 chopped cloves of garlic
6 chopped slices of ham
1/2 lb of mozzarella cheese
2 spoon of Parmesan cheese
salt
pepper
parsley
olive oil
1 pie crust
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl whisk the egg. Pierce the pie crust with a fork and then brush it with the egg. Put it in the oven floor until it gets a gold. Take it out and let it rest.
While the crust is cooking, soute the onions, pepper and garlic with a little of olive oil in a skillet. When the onion gets transparent take it out of the fire. Put it in a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients, season and mix it very well, then transfer it to the pie crust.
Put the pie in the oven and when the cheese is melted is it ready. Take it out of the oven and let it rest for 10'



Tuna Quiche

3 cans of tuna in water
1 chopped onion
1 chopped red pepper
2 chopped cloves garlic
2 chopped hard boiled eggs
12 chopped green olives
Salt
Pepper
Olive Oil
1 Pie crust
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl whisk the egg. Pierce the pie crust with a fork and then brush it with the egg. Put it in the oven floor until it gets a gold. Take it out and let it rest.

While the crust is cooking, in a pan put a little of olive oil and sauté the onions, garlic and peppers and season it with salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes and add the drained tuna cook 2 more minutes and reserve. Transfer the mix to a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients (eggs, olives) mix it very well and pour the filling over the dough, and cook in the oven for 40'. Take it out of the oven and let it rest for 10'


I hope you like these recipes and try them out. They are really good and is a great food for kids. At least my daughters love them. I always have to do an extra one so they can take some for lunch at school the next day.

This is perfect! I just got 2.5 dozen eggs at Harris Teeter for $3! I know what I'm doing with them now!
