Quick Breads

Cheese Olive & Buttermilk Herb Bread

This is a delicious quick bread with herbs, cheeses, and olives, a recipe on sugareverythingnice.blogspot.com. Great with soup, green salad, or make a grilled cheese sandwich. If you are like me, you will be too impatient and just eat a big fat slice warm right out of the oven with a little butter! Perfect.

Cheese Olive & Buttermilk Herb Bread

2¼ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp dry mustard
½ cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup sharp cheddar
1/2 cup sliced green olives (I used black)
8 pieces sundried tomatoes, sliced thinly
1/4 cup mixture of spring onion and Italian parsley
2 tsp thyme leaves or 1 tsp dried thyme
2 eggs
2½ Tbl olive oil
1¼ cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350°. Generously butter large loaf pan and dust with flour. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pepper and mustard. Add Parmesan and cheddar cheeses, olives, sundried tomatoes, spring onion, parsley and thyme and stir together. In separate bowl, whisk eggs, olive oil, and buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until fine skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Leave in pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto wire rack.

Breakfast, Main Dish

Onion Potato & Feta Oven Omlette

We have had this twice for dinner this week, just switch up the ingredients!  Easy to throw together and a little different taste depending on what you add or take away.  First night we had onion, potato, and feta cheese, the second night onion, peppers, ham, and feta, both good.  Change up the type of herbs, cheese, meat and/or vegetable to make all different flavor combinations.  I love the ease of frozen chopped onion, frozen peppers, and frozen hash browns, always on hand for quick meals.

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup small cubed potato (can use shredded)
1 cup chopped bell peppers
1/2-3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
8 large eggs
3/4 cup whipping cream (or half & half or milk)
1 Tbl fresh thyme
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 375°.  Spray fry pan with non-stick spray (or can use oil and/or butter) and saute onion, potato, and peppers until browned and tender.  Place veggies in bottom of sprayed 9″ pie plate, round or square pan, I use a Demarle mold (no spray or prep necessary).  Whisk together eggs, cream, thyme, and salt & pepper.  Pour over veggies in pan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until center is just set.
