Tart filling with 6 eggs ... limited only by your imagination

We are currently living in a bedsit in Tasmania that has a very small kitchenette and so creative thinking using a single sheet of pastry has turned into lots of delicousness. Give these a try or create your own family favourite combinations. Very quick and easy once you have your pastry case prepared.

* Lightly grease a flan dish and line it with a sheet of puff pastry. Blind bake this with a circle of baking paper and some weights (rice lentils or ceramic)
* From here you can fill the pie casing with any filing you like. In this one I've used softened onion and spinach sterms, steamed rainbow spinach, feta cheese, tomatoe slices and pine nuts.
* Pour over 6 lightly beaten eggs with fresh herbs added.

*Bake in a preheated 180° oven until golden brown and firm to the touch ... approximately 20minutes.

Alternative filling ideas ... 

*Caramelised onions, roasted pumpkin slices, baby spinach, feta and sliced tomatoe. 

*Mushroom, cheese and baby spinach. 

*Broccoli, leek and cheese. 

* What ever you choose just pour over 6 lightly beaten eggs with fresh herbs of your choice.

Margarita Pizza

Margarita Pizza
Margarita Pizza with Anchovies and Lumpfish Caviar
This is a wonderfully decadent pizza that you can make very simply with the same dough used in yesterday's blogspot if you have any left... I will however repeat it again here and I hope you give it a go, well worth the minimal effort it takes to make your own from scratch especially if you love the thin and crispy style pizza. 
    • Combine 300ml of warm water with a packet of instant dried yeast, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of caster sugar in a jug and stir to combine then cover and stand in a warm place for a few minutes until bubbles form on the surface.
    • Sift into a large bowl 3 cups of plain flour and add to this the yeast mixture and 2 tablespoons of olive oil...mix into a soft dough and turn out onto a floured board... knead for a few minutes until elastic in texture. Cut it into 6 to 8 pieces and proof them on a greased tray covered with a clean cloth in a warm place until they have doubled in size (about 20 minutes).

    • Top each pizza base with a spoon full of tomato paste spread evenly, sliced tomato, torn pieces of mozzarella or bocconcini, anchovies and torn basil leaves. 
    • Bake in a 180 oven until golden and crunchy (about 10 minutes), remove from the oven and place on a board and top with a little caviar and more fresh basil and then slice and serve.
