Crust less Pie

We never sit together in weekdays to have our breakfast. We are not the one who skip breakfast either. It is always grab and go situation: bars, piece of toast, wrap, etc...
But when it comes to weekend. There is no particular time table, everything is shifted. I guess, it is the same scenario in your home too. When we are usually up, it is neither breakfast time or lunch time. It really depends upon my mood if I want to cook an elaborate breakfast or lunch! Most of the time, I really like to whip up something quick like this crust less pie not much chopping and stirring required and finish all the leftover from the previous night. The pie is easy to put together. By the time, you sip your tea, check your e-mail , read some hot headlines and clear up some feeds from your reader. The pie is really to be devour.

Yield: If u have a big appetite it is barely enough for yourself

Egg: 2 counts
Cheese (pepper jack ): 1 /4 cup shredded (I shredded 2 slices of pepper jack)
Milk: 2 tbsp
Pancake mix or AP flour: 2 tbsp (totally optional but gives body to ur pie)
Salt: a pinch
Freshly ground black pepper
Tomato: 1 small thinly sliced
Green onion: 1 Tbsp
Mint leaves: 1 tbsp chopped finely

Method:
Preheat the oven at 375 C.
Crack the eggs and slightly beat, now add all the other ingredients except the tomato.
Whisk all the ingredients together briefly.
Butter a small pie dish or two individual ramekins. Pour the egg mixture and arrange the tomato on top.
Bake in the oven for 30 or 35 min when tested toothpick comes out clean.

I baked this one in my conventional oven and took exactly 35 min. It could be a large portion if it is accompanied with other brunch items. For me, the pie and little salad will be a great satisfying meal!

The crust less pie is for Meeta who came up with a such a nice theme Brunch for Her Monthly Mingle.

Nandini said...

Hi Cham, am glad to write to you back. About the scallion pancake: whenever I read (i.e. try) a recipe I have a bad habit (!) of reading the comments’ section also. Most of them wrote that the dough was sticky and ended up adding extra ½ cup of flour (like you said). “But the taste was good”. So when I started preparing I found out that yeast dissolved in water was enough. But the dough was somewhat dry, so added 1 tbsp. of oil (I use the US measuring cups and spoons). I didn’t want to add boiling water to this dough as it will kill the poor beneficial yeast. So I added oil. I also rolled it thin, but while cooking due to yeast it started to bulge/fluff up. Even today, I am cooking this for daughter’s school lunch. Next time I will try it with hot water alone. Sorry for the big story

Jamie said...

Hey Cham! It has been such a long time! I started a new job back in May and after that, my blogging took a hit. I am looking forward to getting back into it slowly. I am also looking forward to looking through all your posts that I have missed for the last five months! Hope you are doing great :)

Vani said...

Ooh, that looks wonderful, Cham!

Life is so crazy right now. We're trying to get our cargo to leave before us, plus suddenly our social life is too busy trying to meet everybody before we leave. I'll be glad when the day of departure comes! Not had time to visit all.

You live in Little India, huh? :) Good to have so many choices in restaurants, that too all Indian. Take care, Cham!
