SRC: Secret Recipe Club March Reveal - Eat Little Eat Big

Secret Recipe ClubIt's time for the March Secret Recipe Club reveal...

What's the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group started by Amanda of Amanda's Cookin'. Each month, every participant is assigned to someone else's blog from which they pick a recipe - or two - to make and post, but it's all a secret until the big day. Today's the day. I always love a kitchen challenge and some culinary adventure.

This month I was assigned Eat Little Eat Big by Susie whose blog celebrates good, healthy everyday food. I was inspired by her mini-quiche recipe and fully embraced her invitation to "adapt to whatever you have on hand." Done.

Frittata (an Italian crustless quiche) is on my usual breakfast and brunch rotation, but I have never thought to put them in individual muffin liners to avoid buttering the baking dish.

In this case I spooned eggs, beaten with a splash of milk, into the paper liners. Then I dropped roughly a tablespoon's worth of ham, a teaspoon's worth of low-fat shredded mozzarella, and a teaspoon's worth of shredded parmesan cheese into each well. I sprinkled the tops with a dash of sweet paprika and some freshly ground smoked sea salt. I baked in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes till the egg was set. Delicious and hassle-free breakfast! Thanks for the inspiration, Susie.

Take 2: I liked this so much, I made them as a portable breakfast for my husband and his friend on a 36-hour road trip. This time I used a dry Spanish chorizo and shredded mozzarella. Fabulous and fast.


  1. Awesome! Great adaptations, glad you liked the idea. Aloha, Susie Bee

  2. I consider myself the queen of minis. I am always putting different food items into muffin cups so I welcome your frittata in a cup. I am not sure why but I think, it tastes better mini-sized.

  3. I love this handy breakfast idea! I had your blog, and was really floored by your amazing depth as a cook, so much knowledge. It was a fun blog assignment!

  4. Thanks, gals. Susie Bee for the recipe and Susie from Tennesse for the compliments in your post as well as here. I appreciate it. I know that cooking is stressful for some; it's completely therapeutic for me! ;)

  5. yummy! My kind of recipe. MINI sized.

  6. camilla - i love these little quiches! i know, i know - you can just cut a piece out of a big quiche but baby quiches are just so darn cute! cuter than babies! okay, that might not be true... no, it is. i like quiche babies more than human babies. well done and happy src day!

  7. What a cute little breakfast dish this would be.

  8. I make these all the time and they're always a huge hit. Great SRC choice.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry: Broiled Sushi.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."
