Popover Egg Pies


    Popover Egg Pies

    These tiny egg pies puff up like muffins when baking. They are delicious warm or at room temperature and are the perfect size for eating out of your hand.


    1 tsp (5 mL) extra-virgin olive oil 
    5 eggs
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried tarragon 
    Pinch of salt
    2 small baby potatoes or fingerlings, boiled and thinly sliced
    1/4 cup (60 ml) frozen peas, thawed
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) crumbled goat cheese

    Generously brush 4 muffin cups with oil. Whisk eggs with tarragon and salt. Pour a little into each muffin cup. Divide potatoes, peas, and cheese among cups, then pour remaining egg mixture over top. Cups will be very full.

    Bake in preheated 300 F (150 C) oven until eggs are very puffy and set when pan is jiggled; about 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then run a knife around inside of each popover and using a spoon, scoop out.

    Makes 4 servings.

    Each serving contains:
    154 calories; 10 g protein; 9 g fat (3 g sat. fat, 0 g trans fat); 9 g carbohydrates; 1 g fibre; 124 mg sodium

    JUMP-START: Using frozen peas makes for minimal vegetable prep. Boil a few extra potatoes during dinner prep; then bake the egg pies while you eat.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
