Mini Quiches + Beef Fasolia

Today I have two recipes for you.  One is new, the other is old, but somehow disappeared from my original post.  

First up are mini quiches.  My mom made these for Christmas breakfast and they were really good.  I made some myself last night.  They are the perfect thing to make ahead and freeze for a quick and easy breakfast.

Mini Quiches
8-9 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt
20 grinds of black pepper
shredded cheese
meat, cooked (bacon, sausage, leftover brats...the options are endless!)
roasted potatoes 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray muffin pan with Pam.  Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper.  Layer the potatoes, meat and cheese in the muffin pan.  Pour equal amounts of egg mixture in the muffin pan.  Bake for 22 minutes, or until the eggs are set.

For freezing, let them cool a bit, then wrap tightly in foil.

Now for the oldie, but goodie.  I posted this last year, but somehow that post is no longer showing up - has that happened to anyone else before?  Anyways, it is on schedule to make this week, so I thought I would share it again.  It has become one of my favorite meals, especially on these cold winter days.

Beef Fasolia
1lb stew meat, cut in 1 inch chunks
1 onion, chopped
4 Tablespoons of olive oil
10 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of dried cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt
20 grinds of black pepper
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
3 cups of water
6 oz. can of tomato paste
2 cans of cannellini beans

olive oil
a handful of angel hair pasta, broken into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup of basmati rice
2 cups of water

In a large pot over medium heat, warm the olive oil.  Add the chopped onion and cook for about 10 minutes.  Then, add in the minced garlic and cilantro leaves, sauteing until fragrant.  Add in the meat, salt, pepper and cinnamon, cooking until the meat is light brown.  Pour in 3 cups of water, bringing the mixture to a boil.  Rinse beans, then add in, along with the tomato paste.  Stir everything together, then simmer for 20-30 minutes.  Serve with rice.

I love making this the night before, because it just gets better the more the flavors can mix together.  When you are ready to eat, make the rice.

Heat olive oil over medium heat, then add in broken noodles.  Once the noodles have browned a bit, add in 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat to low for about 15 minutes.  Check to make sure the water is gone, then let sit for about 5 minutes.
