Frittata: Asparagus, Ham and Cheddar

Frittata Asparagus Ham Cheddar

Frittata: Asparagus, Ham & Cheddar

(what I used in parenthesis)

6   eggs, beaten (farm fresh, free range)

1/2 c   cheddar (raw)

1/2 t   black pepper (organic)

dash   sea salt

1 TBS   butter (grass fed, organic)

1/2 c   ham pieces

1/2 c   cooked asparagus pieces (organic, fresh)

1/4 t   dried parsley (organic)

Turn oven on broil.  Combine eggs, cheese, pepper and salt with a fork.  Place oven safe skillet over medium heat and add butter, once butter starts to bubble, add asparagus and ham and saute for 2-3 min.  Add eggs, stir gently, continue cooking 5-6 min or until eggs are set up on bottom.  Sprinkle parsley on top and place in oven and broil for another 5-6 min, until brown and fluffy.

OR… if you are like me and do not have an oven safe skillet (yet), you can cover the frittata as it is cooking on the stove and pull up the edges every so often letting liquid slide under and cook until the top is set…. fauxttata… 😉 you’re welcome.

Milled Wheat Biscuits – Soaked Grains

milled wheat biscuits soaked grains

I found this recipe that called for soaking your grains and adding apple cider vinegar to the recipe and thought…hmmm, well, maybe..  This is now my new favorite biscuit recipe 🙂

Milled Wheat Biscuits-Soaked Grains

  • 2 1/2 cups milled wheat flour (I milled soft white wheat berries)
  • 6 tablespoons high-quality butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Put flour in a bowl and cut in the butter until a crumble forms.  Add milk and apple cider vinegar.  Cover with dampened dish towel or cheese cloth and allow to sit overnight to soak your grains.

After the soaking period, add the baking soda, baking powder and seasalt.  Knead these ingredients into the dough, approximately 10-15 kneads.  Roll dough out to just under desired thickness of biscuits.  Cut into biscuits.  You can use a biscuit/cookie cutter for round biscuits, but I just cut mine into squares/rectangles like the girl did from the original recipe and it worked out great.

Bake at 450˚ for 8-10 min or if baking on a stone about 11-13 min.   We ate ours with gravy made from bacon grease and milled wheat.  Well, I also snuck some in with strawberry preserves for a snack 😉

Here is the link to the original recipe I found:

Buttery Whole-Wheat Biscuits. To blow your mind.

Combine ingredients in order into your bread machine.  Choose dough setting.  Once timer beeps remove and knead about 5-7 times then pull off balls of dough about the size of 1/2 your fist and shape.  Place rolls on cookie sheet and allow to rise for about 30 min then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 min or until golden brown.  I used these to serve sloppy joes on 🙂

Parmesan Garlic Crusted Chicken Strips

  Parmesan Garlic Crusted Chicken Strips – gluten free

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water, and minced garlic then sit it aside.

Put your oats in a blender and blend until it is a powder. In another bowl, combine oat powder, both Parmesan cheeses, pepper, salt, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.

Bang chicken breasts/strips down to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.  Pat dry.

Take each breast/strip and coat both sides in the dry mixture, then dunk in egg mixture, then back into dry mixture on both sides again.

Place onto a thoroughly greased (I used coconut oil for this) cookie sheet or tin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 min or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked through.  I like to serve with marinara sauce.

Seasoned Tomato Soup from Sauce

Seasoned Tomato Soup from Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to med-low and simmer for about 10-20 min.  I just simmer the whole time I am making Grilled Italian Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwiches and it works out great.
