Brendan found a stash of eggs under your house from the girls so we have a bit of a egg build up, over 3 dozen! we made a spinach and fetta frittata and maggie made a batch of kiss biscuits they always want to make kiss biscuits, a little treat for their lunch boxes this week. Maggie(7) and Stephanie (5) can now pretty much make them on her own I do give her a hand with the mixing, in the thermomix, and with the oven but she does all the measuring, rolling, cutting and decorating.
Stephanie made the frittata mainly because she looooves cracking the eggs!
Spinach and fetta Frittata
Make a pastry base or pie crust to line your pie dish or tray if you want, see this recipe
100 ml cream
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
2 bunches spinach (or 180 grams frozen cooked like I used today)
2 tablespoons basil
50 Grams fetta
50 grams parmesan
salt and pepper
crush the garlic, finely dice the onion finely chop the spinach and basil and mix all ingredients together well with the grated and crumbled cheeses. pour into a pie dish or baking tray and bake for 20- 30 minutes in a moderate 180C oven. serve with chutney and salad.
Stephanie who is my fussier eater loved the spinach frittata, and called it Stephanie’s spinach pie. I wonder if she would have enjoyed it as much if i had just plonked it down in front of her and she wasn’t involved in the making of it?? The Kiss Biscuit recipe is from my book The Real food for kids cookbook, the book has lots of well tested ‘cooking with kids’ recipes. The book makes a quality gift and I have a sale on now so grab a few copies for any upcoming baby showers, gifts for new babies, kids (or adults) birthdays or even christmas if you want to be organised!
