Fall Picnic

This is a great cookbook that I have owned for over 25 years now.

It includes 100 pages packed with dishes and drinks recipes for picnics, along with instructions on how to pack, how to keep warm, when to prepare prior to the picnic and all sorts of other tidbits.

It is perfect if you want to treat your loved one to an indoor picnic this Fall - the book is still in print with an updated look and cover; but I like cooking from my falling apart copy.
The recipe I am sharing with you is for a Crustless Ham & Cheese pie.

Melt 0.5 cup butter in a frying pan and cook a bunch of sliced mushrooms, one minced garlic clove and 1 sliced zucchini.

Add 1 cup diced cooked ham.

In a bowl, beat 4 eggs and add 2 cups ricotta cheese, 1 cup shredded cheddar and chopped spinach.

Add the fried vegetables and ham, mix well and it's ready to bake.

For kicks, I added a Tbs of pickled peppercorns for a bit of a taste kick.

Bake uncovered in a 325 oven for 40 minutes.

Cool, serve and enjoy.
