It’s is the Saturday before Mother’s Day and we have friends popping over for brunch. In my world brunch means a collection of yummy snack-able sized morsels, hot beverages and long drawn out conversations.
I am consistently short on time and big on ideas. My grand plans are usually pared down as time trickles down. This morning I decided that quiche, salad and apple crumble tarts were what I could successful tackle. Thankfully, I can depend on Tenderflake tart and pie shells to help me out in kitchen. In an hour I was able to whip up my menu with kid prep help and my DH as chief dishwasher.
Sherrie-Mae’s Quick Quiche
1 large Tenderflake pie shell
6 large eggs
8 cherry tomatoes (halved)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup homo milk
3/4 cup shredded marble cheese
Let the pie crust sit at room temperature for 15 mins, pricked the base of the crust with fork five times, then popped the crust in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
In a bowl, mix together: eggs, cherry tomatoes, green onions, heavy cream and homo milk. Pour mixture into pre-cooked pie shell.
Spread shredded cheese over quiche and cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
Marvellous Mini Apple Tarts
12 Tenderflake tart shells
4 medium Macintosh apples (peeled, & diced)
1/2 cup salted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tbsp vanilla
Let the tart shells sit at room temperature for 15 mins, pricked the base each of the tart shells with fork, then popped the crust in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
In a microwaves safe bowl, mix together: apples, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla. Microwave the mixture on high for two minutes, stir again, and microwave for another two minutes.
|Pre Microwaved Mixture|
Spoon the apple mixture, including butter liquid into each pre-cooked tart shell evenly. Ensure the tarts are filled to the top of the tart shell.
|Filled Uncooked Tarts|
Using the apple mixture bowl, add 1/2 cup of quick oats and 1/4 cup of salted butter. Mix the ingredients together and spoon evenly into each tart. Each tart will be slightly overfilled.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
