Itty bitty pies….   Leave a comment

I got this new THING in through mail order last week, and decided today to try it out for the first time.

It’s a personal pie maker. Here ’tis.

Here ’tis with an egg on top so you can see how itty bitty they really are. Or rather, will be.

Okay. It came with an instruction booklet that had a few recipes. I decided to try the mini quiche recipe. So I read it over to make sure I had everything, and that I knew what to do with the silly machine. Only to find that the machine was not the only silly thing that came in the box. Here’s the recipe:

Do you see the problem here? The recipe is called “Ham, Cheese and Herb Quiche.” A quick look at the ingredients show that it calls for ham, eggs and cream, and herbs, but for some reason, no cheese. Huh?
Then you read the directions. It starts off by saying, “combine and mix in bowl leek, ham, eggs, cream and herbs.” LEEK????
So confused. but whatever, I got the gist of it. I make regular quiche enough to know what to do.

So here’s the half made product, (leek-less) two with top crusts already on, two without. (you have to have a top crust for this to work)

Here it is after only 10 minutes. Don’t they look yummy? You can make fruit pies as well, or a cottage pie, I suppose, with a crust on top of the potatoes. Or a Jamaican meat pie! Mmmmm…

Didn’t cook quite long enough for the eggs, but they were soft set, and it really wasn’t that bad. I bet a fruit pie would be delish…
