Baked Cabbage & Speck Frittata

I must admit this is not my recipe, I was in desperate need of inspiration due to there being next to nothing in the fridge (a very sorry sight). So I turned to Google for help and typed in various combinations of the ingredients I had in the fridge and BINGO this fabulous one came up on La Cucina Italiana Magazine!!

Ingredients:
(Serves Six) 
  • 400g Speck, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 Large Savoy Cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 6 Eggs
  • 50g Parmesan, grated
  • 150ml Milk
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat oven 200C

Roast the cabbage in a large non-stick baking tray for 10mins with a drizzle of olive oil, stirring occasionally.

Roughly chop 110g of speck and add to the cabbage and cook for a further 5mins.



In a large bowl beat the eggs, cheese, milk and season with salt and pepper.

Add the cabbage and speck to the egg mixture and mix well.


Carefully line bottom of the baking tray with the remaining slices of speck then add the content of the bowl too, spread evenly.


Bake in the oven for 20mins until the frittata is set. Once ready let cool for 10mins and turnover onto a large plate to serve.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter plus more for greasing pan
¼ pound thinly sliced speck or prosciutto 
4 cups very thinly sliced green cabbage plus more for garnish
6 large eggs
2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Grana Padano cheese (about 2 ounces)
cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
Fine sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: a 9-inch cast iron or ovenproof skillet

Instructions

Heat oven to 425° with rack in lower third. Lightly grease a 9-inch skillet.
Roughly chop 3 slices speck; set aside. Line bottom and sides of prepared skillet with remaining speck slices, slightly overlapping edges of pan.
In a second large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally until wilted and tender, about 15 minutes. Add chopped speck, increase heat to medium-high and cook 3 minutes more.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cheese, milk and pinch each salt and pepper. Add half of the cabbage; stir to combine. Spread remaining cabbage over speck-lined skillet, then pour in egg mixture. Bake in oven until frittata is set and lightly golden on top, about 20 minutes.
Let cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Using a spatula, loosen edges of frittata, then invert frittata onto serving plate. Garnish with cabbage. Serve warm or at room temperature.

3-Tier Salted Caramel Chocolate Fudge Cake

It's was my "baby sister's" 20th birthday a few days ago, so to celebrate I opted to make my most indulgent cake recipe to date and what a mega treat it was, taken from two female chefs, Peggy Porschen and Ren Behan. A taste of pure gluttony in clear moderation can do wonders for the soul and this cake definitely gets those endorphins going!


Ingredients:
(Serves 24-28 portions)

Sponge (by Peggy Porschen)
250g plain chocolate335ml milk570g soft light brown sugar210g butter, softened 4 large eggs365g plain flour1 tsp baking powder1 tsp bicarbonate of sodapinch of salt 15g cocoa powderSalted Carmel Buttercream (by Ren Behan)
250g butter, softened500g icing sugar3 tbsp. caramel sauceGanache
150ml double cream175g plain chocolate1 tbsp. caramel sauce
Preheat oven to 160C.

Grease three round cake tins (23-25cm diameter) and line with greaseproof paper, do this also round the side of the tin, this helps to avoid the crispy edges from forming.

Chickpea Burgers

I am conscious of what I eat during the week and that variety is important so not to get bored and reach for the biscuit tin, time is also a big constraint on what goes on the menu. The last thing I want to do after a long day’s work is sweat over a hot stove for hours on end, so I am always looking for simple, quick and more importantly TASTY options to bring to the dining table.

Ingredients:
1 can of chickpeas1 carrot2 shallots1 large egg 2 tbsp breadcrumbs Salt & pepperGround CuminCayenne PepperGrate the carrots and chop the shallots finely (or whizz in a food processor with the grater attachment), transfer to a pan with a little olive oil and sweat for a few minutes to sweeten the shallots slightly, set aside.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put them into a food processor with all the spices, salt and pepper. Slightly pulse for a rough and chunky paste. Stir in the carrot, shallots, egg, and breadcrumbs until evenly mixed.

Time to get your hands dirty and make those burger patti…

Oaty Crumble

A crumble isn't a crumble if the topping isn't right... am I right?

I’ve experimented with this topping recipe quite a few times and now confident saying that you will find this gluten free oatilicious crumble to be so moorish you won’t want to put it down, whatever the filling.  Even when cold and of the next day it’s incredibly tasty and keeps its crunch, a real breakfast temptation. What’s more there is no dairy or refined sugar in sight!

In today's post I have provided two different filling options:
Apple & Blackberry
Apple & Rhubarb

There is something about foraged fruit or indeed fruit from the garden in a recipe that makes it taste unbelievably scrumptious. Thanks to my friend Gina for the handpicked cooking apples (they were of the perfect tartness!), the blackberries on the other hand were freshly picked from a nearby park and even though they were smaller than previous years, the sweetness they added to the crumble made for an incredibly delicious pudding!
