I belong to Tribal Blogs, a fun, dynamic, supportive collective of bloggers. Started by Jen of Red Head Ranting, it is a relaxed and friendly group. And they have great blogs. Most Saturday evenings a bunch of us meet online and chat about anything and everything. The exchange is fast and furious, almost always very funny. Last night someone likened it to being in a noisy bar, having to work hard to keep up because you are only catching half the conversations, the words come with such velocity. Remember, we’re bloggers: writers who need a lot of attention. lol
Some people can’t do Saturday evening for one reason of another. One of our group, Thomas at 101 Things in 1001 Days, had the brilliant idea of doing a brunch chat, but also adding a tutorial for making an egg/cheese pie by doing a live feed over his blog. I joined in this morning and was able to visit with my fellow bloggers while we made a yummy brunch main course.
Here is the recipe and pictures I took along the way:
1 16 ounce roll of breakfast sausage
1 package of ready made roll out pie crusts
1 tablespoon minced chives (optional)
1 15 ounce package of ricotta cheese
Salt and pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
Kiss your granddaughter good morning (optional).
Have a mimosa (optional).
In a frying pan, cook the sausage until is crumbled and browned.
Line a 9 inch pie plate with one of the pie crusts. Drain the grease and evenly spread the cooked sausage in the pie pan.
Break the eggs one by one into the pie plate without breaking the yolks, five around the perimeter and one in the center.
Sprinkle with chives, salt and pepper. Spoon ricotta cheese over the eggs.
Cover with the second pie crust and pinch the edges to seal.
Make a few slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes and allow to rest for approximately 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
Easy peasy and it is delicious! Thank you Thomas and all my friends at Tribal Blogs, especially Jen who is the amazing driving force behind the whole thing.
