For those of you who expressed an interest in the Cheesy Egg Wedges recipe about which I blogged in my last post, here it is.
The original recipe appeared in a book put out by Better Homes and Gardens and I made only a couple of small changes to it.
CHEESY EGG WEDGES
4 beaten eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups shredded smoked cheddar cheese
1 cup cream-style cottage cheese with chives
1 cup salsa
Combine the eggs, milk, flour, baking powder and garlic powder. Beat with a rotary beater until combined. Stir in the shredded cheese and cottage cheese.
Pour into a greased 9" pie plate. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
To serve, cut into 6 wedges. Top with salsa, either warmed-up, or room temp, or cold.
As I said in my previous post(picture there), I make only half the recipe for the two of us and we eat half one morning and half the next. To reheat, I put the last half in a small covered skillet with a wee bit of water and it comes out as good in taste and texture as freshly baked. (That means we get two meals out of two eggs! Can't beat that.)
I don't know if they even sell cottage cheese with chives in it anymore, so I just add some of my snipped frozen chives. They're for color more than anything else.
I've always used smoked cheddar cheese because of the nice flavor it imparts, but regular cheddar would be fine.

I now know which bed I planted the garlic in this past fall. (Whew!)
Yesterday afternoon Papa Pea suggested that he could put on snowshoes, take a shovel and go out to the row of raised beds I had figured the garlic had to be in. I was pretty sure I had narrowed it down to one of two beds next to each other. He could tell where the ends of the beds were by the hoop trellis we left on Bed #3. So with his shovel, he found the ends of the beds leading down to Bed #6 and #7. By pushing the shovel head down into the snow on top of each bed, he located the wire cattle panel protecting the garlic bed.
Ta-dah, the garlic is in Bed #7. Mystery solved. I bet I'll remember next fall to mark the garlic bed in my garden book in RED INK!
Here he is coming back from the expedition. He said he was glad he didn't sink down into the snow more as it was not easy going even on snowshoes. Good thing he's big and brave and could handle it!
