I'm going to throw a brunch recipe into Nini's Recipe Rodeo ring.
I just invented these today. I needed to come up with a snack food for Scott to bring with him to Beer club tonight. (He is learning how to become a brew master!) I was planning to prepare a quiche for our Sunday Breakfast. So, I decided to make a manly version of quiche, that can be eaten as a finger food. I call them -
Spicy Cheesy Meaty Hand Pies
2 2/3 cup Flour
1 cup salted butter, cold & cut into small pieces
1/2 ice water
Cut butter into flour. You can do this by hand, or with a mixer or a food processor. If using a machine, just be sure not to mix it too long. The butter should be like tiny pea in the flour.
Now slowly mix in a little bit of cold water at a time, just until dough comes together.
Smash it into a circle, wrap with plastic wrap & chill it in the fridge for about an hour (but longer is fine, maybe up to 2 days or so...)
2 cups gruyere cheese, shredded
4 pieces of bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 small can of diced jalapeno peppers
1/3 cup cream
