Mushroom, Sweet Onion and Bacon Frittata

Posted on Sep. 16th 2012 No Comments »

Here is a very tasty frittata that is great served with a kale side salad. It’s from the cookbook Eggs.

  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2–inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 pound cremini or button mushrooms, brushed clean and sliced
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cream or milk
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a 12-inch ovenproof nonstick frying pan over medium heat, cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the bacon fat.

Add the olive oil to the pan and return it to medium heat. Stir in the onion with a pinch each of salt and pepper and cook until it just begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the onion is soft and translucent and the mushrooms are tender, 4-6 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, thyme, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.

When the onion and mushrooms are done, reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the egg mixture and the bacon and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs begin to set but do not begin to scramble. Cook the eggs, undisturbed, until they begin to set around the edges, 2-3 minutes more. Transfer the frying pan to the oven and bake until the eggs are set around the edges and just firm in the center, about 5 minutes more.

Loosen the sides of the frittata with a spatula and hold a platter over the top of the pan. Holding the sides with hot pads, invert the frittata onto the platter. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.

Serves 4-6

Cheesy Baked Pasta with Vegetables

Posted on Aug. 21st 2012 No Comments »

This is a great dish to make ahead and pop in the oven when you’re ready. It was featured in Women’s Day Magazine.

  • 12 oz bowtie pasta
  • 12 oz broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more for the dish
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced mushrooms
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 bag (5 oz) baby spinach
  • 5 ounce(s) (1 1/4 cups) fontina cheese, grated
  • 1⁄3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1 boned rotisserie chicken, meat diced (optional)

Heat oven to 425 F. Butter a shallow 3-qt baking dish.

Cook the pasta according to package directions, adding the broccoli during the last 3 minutes of cooking; drain and return the broccoli and pasta to the pot.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and mushrooms and sauté until tender, 5 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, flour, salt and pepper. Pour into skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes; stir in spinach. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of the fontina and 1⁄3 cup of the Parmesan.

Pour sauce into pot with pasta and broccoli and toss to coat. Add chicken, if using. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining fontina and Parmesan.

Bake until the cheese melts and is beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.

Serves 8

Make ahead:

After completing step 5, let casserole cool for 10 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

On the night you’d like to serve it, remove casserole from refrigerator and replace plastic wrap with nonstick aluminum foil. Bake in a 425°F oven for 30 minutes; uncover and bake until beginning to brown, 10 minutes.

These little casseroles are great for brunch, lunch or dinner. This recipe is from the cookbook Basic to Brilliant, Y’all.

  • 16 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 6 ounces mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Position the oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Prepare an ice-water bath by filling a large bowl with ice and water.

To cook the spinach, heat 1/2 inch water in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the spinach and cook until wilted, about 30 seconds. Add the remaining spinach cover, and cook, over medium-high heat until tender, about 60 seconds. Drain well in a colander, then set the colander with spinach in the ice-water bath to set the color and stop the cooking, making sure the spinach is submerged. Remove the colander with spinach to drain. Working with a handful at a time, squeeze the spinach between two dinner plates or by hand to remove any excess liquid. Set aside.

In the same skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and any liquid is released, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 45-60 seconds. Add the cream, nutmeg, and spinach. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat.

Divide the spinach-cream mixture among 4 wide ramekins. Top each with an egg, then sprinkle with cheese. Bake until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny, about 8 minutes.

Serves 4

Mac and Cheese with Mushrooms and Kale

Posted on Mar. 31st 2012 No Comments »

An old standard updated with the addition of mushrooms and kale. This yummy version is from The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook.

  • 3/4 pound kale, stems cut from leaves (about 5 1/2 cups)
  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 ounce (1/2 cup) dried porcini mushrooms, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 pound cremini mushrooms, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the kale for 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the kale to a colander (keep the pot of cooking water at a boil). Run the kale under cold water to stop the cooking and then drain and squeeze out any liquid. Coarsely chop.

Add the macaroni to the boiling kale-cooking water and cook according to package directions. Drain.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the dried porcini with 1 cup warm water. Let stand until the mushrooms have softened, about 20 minutes. With your fingers, lift the mushrooms from their soaking liquid, leaving the grit behind. Line a fine-mesh sieve with paper towels, a paper coffee filter, or cheesecloth. Pour the mushroom-soaking liquid through the sieve into a bowl. Reserve the liquid. Coarsely chop the mushrooms.

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or other large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the porcini and cremini mushrooms, thyme, and sage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have wilted and released their juices, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the mushroom-soaking liquid, milk, paprika, and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted. Add the macaroni and kale and toss to coat.

Transfer the mixture to a 9 X 13-inch glass baking dish or individual ramekins.

In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the panko and toss to coat. Scatter the butter crumbs over the mac and cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the top is crunchy and golden brown.

Serves 8
