Its been pie day at Foamhearts! If you need pie crust recipes or instructions hollar at Richie he's gotta handle on 'em.
We started out with an egg pie which the french call quiche. They are real simple, I started making 'em back when we had chickens. Great dark orange eggs fresh each day. So egg pies, scrambled fried poached custards, etc, etc. etc.... These are really easy, longest part is the crust so I generally just make 'em a day in advance and they turn out nice and flaky that way.
Here's my basic recipe.
2C heavy cream
1C grated cheese
salt & pepper
pinch of nutmeg
1/2C fresh asparagas sauted
1/2C minced double smoked ham (warmed with the sauteed asparagas)
Everything else is just gravy on the rice! Brocolli, spinach, turkey, onions, bacon, tasso, andouille, etc etc etc......
Preheat to 425
Bake @ 425 15 to 20 mins. to set the eggs
Reduce to 310 to 325 and finish at 30 to 45 mins. (untill the custard is almost completely firm).
Remove from the oven, let rest 20 to 30 mins.
LOL.. sorry i wasn't faster! I added a about 1/4 of a peeled and cored fresh Honey Crisp to the plate for serving.
Thats it for a Friday.
While making one crust I went ahead and did another...... as above but with sugar and cinnamin in it to mate with the pie.
Sweet potato pie....... We don't do no whimpy pies around here! LOL.
Throw in a nice cup of coffee and its breakfast, large glass a moo juice and its a snack! Delicious either way.
Its just been a pie kinda day.
