Sunday cooking: frittata with cherry tomatoes and cheese

Yesterday I was watching Fine living and there was this super easy and delicious looking frittata recipe that I couldn’t way to try. It was with asparagus and cheese but I changed it to my taste.

Here is the recipe:

Preheat the olive oil in a large pan and add the onion. In the meantime crack the eggs in a large bowl, add the cheese and the milk and season with salt and pepper. Whisk until you get a homogeneous mixture and pour it in the pan. After 2-3 minutes add the tomatoes and wait till you see the eggs bubbling at the edges of the pan. Remove from the stove and insert in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes and you’re ready. I threw in a toast and banana and it made the perfect Sunday breakfast.

Homemade pizza

I’ve been making pizza for quite some time and now is time to share my recipe. It’s very easy and doesn’t take too much time.

First I spread some oil at the bottom of a pan. Then I put some flour on the dough and roll it out till it takes up the whole pan. After that I smear it with tomato sauce, sprinkle some basil and put the turkey ham which you can replace with meat at your taste, or you can skip the meat altogether.

ImageIt goes to the preheated to 180C oven for 5-7 min so the dough can rise. Then I put some pesto, cheddar, mozzarella, grated parmesan and grated Bulgarian yellow cheese and return it to the oven for another 10-15 min.

ImageThe result is a crusty, yummy and rich homemade pizza.

ImageThe ingredients:

  • 400gr dough
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 1tsp oil
  • 100gr tomato sauce
  • 5gr basil
  • 150 gr turkey ham
  • 10gr pesto
  • 100gr mozzarella
  • 50gr cheddar
  • 30gr grated parmesan
  • 100gr grated yellow cheese

Four cheese chicken

I found a great looking chicken parmesan  recipe on the Internet last week so I decided it’s time to try it. Then I started pulling stuff out of the fridge, and like most of the things I cook, it was clear that I won’t follow the recipe and would have to cross my fingers till the first bite.

First off, I preheated the oven to 200 degrees, I put the chicken breasts in a baking sheet and seasoned them with olive oil, salt, cracked pepper, garlic and white wine.

DSCN2209I baked them for 10-15min and when I got them out of the oven I covered them with pesto, tomato sauce, grated mozzarella, grated parmesan and croutons with a small amount of butter on top.

DSCN2212I baked the whole thing for 5 min so the croutons would get golden brown. Then I put another layer of tomato sauce and added mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, Bulgarian yellow cheese and basil.

DSCN2220The result was a tasty homemade dish that got even Martin full, which is a rare sight since he has something like nine stomachs 🙂

Weekend brunch for champions: 3 cheese fried eggs

This is one of my go-to recipes: easy, tasty, nutritious and healthy. I like that I can make the eggs quickly, and I don’t have to pull out, or clean up, several bowls or utensils. Moreover, I’ve found that adding cheese to the eggs makes the whole dish much more flavorful and yummy.

Butter is commonly used in the cooking of fried eggs. However, I prefer using olive oil instead.  It has many health benefits, it adds distinctive flavor and it also has a higher smoke point than butter, so it’s easier to clean my pans. Enough with the olive oil ad and the cleaning, here is the recipe:

Preheat the olive oil in a large pan. When it’s hot  carefully crack the eggs into the pan, allowing room for each one to cook separately. After a minute or so, the egg white will solidify from transparency into a firm white texture and you have to add the cheese and season with salt. Cook for 5-6 minutes, season with red pepper and then slide the eggs onto a plate.

I recommend making a salad that goes perfectly with the eggs. I made a classic green salad with cucumber that I seasoned with olive oil, vinegar and salt. Bon apetit!

  • vinegar
