BOHEMIA, N.Y., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign that is dedicated to providing the latest in olive oil news, shares a recipe for crustless mini quiches prepared with extra virgin olive oil that makes a delicious appetizer for a cocktail party or brunch.
This recipe calls for:
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/2 cups packed (ribs removed) finely chopped fresh kale
¼ cup sliced scallions
3 oz. spicy chorizo (Spanish or Portuguese-style), finely chopped
1 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
½ cup finely shredded cheddar-Jack blend cheese
6 large eggs
½ cup half and half
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Generously spray 2 (12-section) mini non-stick muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
Next, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over Medium-High heat. Add kale, scallions & chorizo and cook 4-5 minutes or until kale is wilted. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, salt, pepper & nutmeg until well combined. Evenly divide the kale-chorizo mixture among prepared muffin tins. Carefully pour the egg mixture over the chorizo mixture in each cup, to just below the rims. Sprinkle the top of each tin with about 1 teaspoon of the cheese.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until the tops are puffed & begin to turn golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Using a small offset spatula (or small fork), carefully lift out of pans; serve warm. Garnish each with a sprinkle of additional chopped scallion, if desired.
Makes 24 mini-cups. If you have leftovers, keep them covered in the refrigerator for up to two days and reheat in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.
