Mediterranean Pie

Kittens are still being hand-fed. Not a lot of time to cook, but some joint efforts produced a nice pie the other night. It's now resting happily in our freezer, in convenient portion-sized pieces, and will be perfect for quick lunches. It's a recipe that Per's mom made last time we were there - delicious!

Mediterranean Pie
Serves 6

1 pie shell (just use your favorite pie crust recipe), baked blind for 10 minutes

large handful of rocket leaves
150 g smoked ham, cubed
1 red onion, thinly sliced
100 g feta cheese, cubed
3 eggs
300 ml milk
1 garlic clove, minced

Place the rocket leaves in the pie shell. Cover with the ham, the cheese and the onion. Whisk together the eggs with the milk, the garlic, oregano, salt (don't use much - the feta cheese is salty) and some pepper. Pour this over the pie. Bake for roughly half an hour, in a 200 degrees warm oven. (Celsius.)

Ah, I should have specified - it's Celsius. (I think it equals something like 390 F) I'll change it right away! :)

It's a really simple pie to make, and everyone seems to love it - such simple flavors, and they blend beautifully.

Tried this tonight and it IS delicious. On mine, the oregano (I used fresh) came to the top, so next time I'll try putting it in with the ham. Anyway, yummy! Thanks! :)
