Swiss Chard and Corn Tart

It’s been a while since we made this, but it was good. I finally downloaded the photos from my camera, so here it is…Swiss chard and corn tart

We used the Olive oil tart crust from Chocolate and Zucchini. Which turned out a but tough…I may not have rolled it thin enough? But was still a nice base for the tart.

The rest of the Swiss chard and corn tart was basically from the original post, except we topped it with Rondelé rather than the goat cheese.

Overall a fairly easy and healthy meal that all enjoyed!

Sausage and Spinach Quiche

This recipe for Sausage and Spinach Quiche looked good. I love making pie crust from scratch though, so I modified it a bit.

For the crust:

  • 1 1/3 cups White Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 Flax-paks
  • About 5 Tbs ice water with a bit of lemon juice

Cut the butter and flax into the flour and add enough water to hold everything together. Roll out on a floured surface and place into pie dish.

For the filling:

  • 1 package sausage sliced or removed from casing
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ~10oz bag of fresh spinach
  • ~1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375. In a skillet, cook the sausage and onion. Add the garlic and spinach and cook until the spinach releases its water.

Place the cheese in the bottom of the pie shell, add the sausage and spinach mixture on top. Lightly beat the eggs with the milk and pour over sausage and spinach.

Cook at 375 for about 45 minutes.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I generally avoid coffee cakes since they take so long to cook. But this morning I woke up early enough that I decided to give one a try. We had some sour cream that needed using, and I found this recipe at Two Peas & Their Pod, where I’ve seen some other great recipes, so I decided to give it a try.

We ate it up too fast to take a photo…it was really good (besides, Two Peas has great photos of this)! I added a little extra cinnamon and skipped the glaze, but other than that, followed the recipe.
