Quiche № 3: Taco-style

I really like Tortillas. I don’t know what that means to you – but in Denmark “Tortillas” (pronounced with hard “L’s”) is a Tortilla Pancake filled with taco-seasoned ground beef, salad, salsa, dressing, guacamole and shredded mozzarella. Yes, it is very similar to the filling of a Taco shell. That is the kind of Tortilla that has won the hearts here in Denmark for sure. I’ll do a recipe for you some time, cause they are so good!

But for now I’m still doing my Quiche-mania so it’s on to a Tortilla style Quiche. But to make everyone associate with the right filling, I present: The Taco Quiche! The Taco Quiche is impossible to find online, but it’s not super common. For my recipe I will brag and say I found no inspiration online – I made this one all in my own head. So that makes me particularly proud.

Meatball № 4 – American Style

I think it’s time to make meatballs my signature dish! It all started with my Danish Pork-Patties. The classic! But then I got hot for more meatball-mania so I had to try making chicken patties – awesome they were! And as if that shouldn’t be enough I have my two Falafel recipes! It is safe to say I am totally in love with this concept of incredible food that is minced, mixed and scooped into meatballs! Or chickpea balls or whatever! Call them patties, call them balls – I will eat them for sure!

And now my life long search for great balls have let me to the COW! I am going to explore the beef based meatballs that we don’t eat in Denmark – at least not traditionally! Traditionally Danes eat ground beef af hamburgers! We make a beef and then we fry it and est it with brown gravy and potatoes! But that will soon be changing if I am the woman in charge. Well, who am I kidding, I’m not in charge at all! But a woman can dream, right?

For my first beef-based experiment I will be making meatballs: AMERICAN STYLE! ..Nope, that is not as authentic as it sounds. That is just my way of showing you how I see America: In a meatball!

With all the cooking shows and blogs I have laid eyes on there are three things that I know for sure that Americans love and need: BBQ sauce, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Parsley! I mean – every time! In any American recipe one of these will occur! I promise! Well, at least 95%! Continue reading “Meatball № 4 – American Style”

Meatball № 3 – Greek Style!

And yes I know we have had our share of meatballs on this blog already but I can’t seem to get enough of this. Pork, Chicken or Beef, you name it, I’ll eat it! Yes, I will! And I know I am going to get known for my meatballs someday! That’s my true life goal! And to get a little closer to that goal we are doing Greek style today!

These meatballs are so delicious. We had them at a party on spears with mushrooms and squash – I didn’t like that to much! But then I reinvented it with mashed potatoes and gravy – and that was very nice! And later on, I talked with one of my friends who suggested eating them with Tzaziki, Salad and Oven Roasted Potatoes – a little more authentic one might say!

Potato lasagna

I’ve made this dish for a lighter version of a very old friend.. Lasagna!

We LOVE lasagna.. Actually we love lasagnette.. But pasta is kind of a no go in this household at the moment, so I went to another old and dear friend. The potato.

We love potatoes! Actually, my Husband loves potatoes. I’ve mentioned before: My husband likes classic Danish Cuisine. The definition of Danish food is potatoes. Not sweet potatoes like the Americans. Nope! We like white or yellow potatoes here! We love to boil them, and boiled potatoes with brown sauce is used with all kinds of meat in Denmark. You’ll see much more of that in the future on the blog.

What I was saying: We love potatoes and we put potatoes in everything. Now including Lasagna.

I must warn you though: You won’t fool anyone! This is not a Lasagna. We could choose to reefer to this dish as “unmashed Shepards Pie”, that would be just as accurate. Pasta is pasta, and potatoes aren’t gonna fool anyone. That being said, this is still very delicious, and you should make it! Tonight!
