Irakuchen (Egg Cake)
The Germans on the board can tell me if I spelled that right. We called it Patty Cake as kids.
3 cups milk
1 cup flour
1 lb bacon, cut into small pieces and fried crisp
1 can mushrooms - optional
Mix the ingredients together well. Pour into a non-stick frying pan. Let it begin to solidify then gently pull edges in to let the liquid in the centre out. Otherwise, you'd just have scrambled eggs.
Once it is fairly firm all the way through, put a large plate over the frying pan, flip it over and then slide it back into the frying pan so the uncooked side is down. Once it is cooked, flip it back out onto the plate and grate some cheese on top. Place in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese.
My Mom's Quiche recipe:
1 9" quiche or deep pie plate lined with unbaked pastry
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp butter
8 bacon slices, diced
1 pkg (125 g) cream cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup milk
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup broccoli, chopped and cooked
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs (about 1 slice)
4 tomatoes, sliced or wedged
Saute onions, mushrooms and seasonings in butter. Fry bacon until crisp, drain and crumble. Cream together cheeses, blend in milk. Add beaten eggs. Fold in broccoli, bacon, bread crumbs, onions and mushrooms. Pour into pastry lined shell. Arrange tomato slices around out edge. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Lower temperature to 350 and bake 25 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Mom often served this with a salad and a loaf of crusty bread, like Italian or French.
