Fast & Easy Recipe for Cheesy Pie
A Delicious Treat For Cheese Lovers Of All Ages
By Damien Andrews
A cheesy pie, made with guinea fowl eggs, fresh out of the oven. Golden brown and delicious.
Cheese is one of those foods that everyone, whose stomach can tolerate it, will eat when it is placed in front of them. Even kids with picky palates keep cheese on a short list of foods they will eat without "cutting a deal with mom." My Cheesy Pie recipe combines three different types of cheese; Cheddar, Mozzarella and Monterey Jack. This recipe makes a delicious hot meal which can be served anytime of the day.
If you keep guinea fowl and are looking for recipes to utilize your mounting stash of fresh guinea fowl eggs, then you will love this simple recipe. Just remember that one large size chicken egg is the equivalent of two guinea fowl eggs. I've made this Cheesy Pie recipe using rich, delicious guinea fowl eggs. Try it, you won't be disappointed!
What You Will Need:
1 cup of shredded Cheddar Cheese (about 4 ounces)
1 cup of shredded Mozzarella Cheese (about 4 ounces)
1 cup of shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (about 4 ounces)
1 medium onion, chopped (about ½ cup)
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
4 eggs or 8 guinea fowl eggs
1 cup of milk
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 medium tomatoes, sliced (for garnish)
Grease a 10 inch quiche dish or a 9 inch pie pan. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix all the cheeses together. Add the onion and flour. Mix until everything is coated lightly with flour. Spread the cheese mixture on the bottom of the pie pan.
Beat the eggs slightly, and then beat in the milk, salt, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Pour this mixture over the top of the cheese mixture. Bake uncovered, in a 350°F oven for about 40 minutes. Check on the pie about 5 minutes before time is up. Make sure not to burn the top. Remove from oven and let it stand for about 10 minutes.
If you find that you need a little meat with your meal, try adding some pre-cooked pork sausage to the cheese mixture before it goes into the oven. I've even added leftover turkey meat; you know the little bits and pieces that are leftover after the turkey has been picked over? They are the tenderest nuggets to be found on a cooked turkey. Add about ¼ cup of cooked meat into the cheese mixture before you place it into the oven. Or you can simply fry up some meat to be served along side the Cheesy Pie.
You can serve Cheesy Pie with sliced tomatoes on the side, or with a spoon full of your favorite salsa on top. For busy moms and dads, try making it the day before, then refrigerate until you are ready to serve. Cut the pie into serving slices and microwave for about one minute per slice. My recipe for Cheesy Pie will serve about 8 folks. Bon Appetite!
Fresh, sliced tomato complements Cheesy Pie perfectly. The tomato not only enhances the flavor of the pie, it also adds a festive look to the presentation.
