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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
