Savory Bake Sale Ideas too?
Berkeleybabe's question leads me to this one (and yes, I'm thinking about your quiche, BethP--thanks!). We have a bake sale tomorrow from 12-6pm. If you were a starving student or faculty member and wanted something healthful to grab, on the "I-don't-eat-anything-scary" side, and that would be easy and inexpensive to make what would it be?
Make a frittata/torta type thing with eggs, veggies and cheese. Double or triple the recipe and bake it in a lasagna pan. You can serve it hot or cold, with or without sauce, cut into large squares or small appetizer-sized ones. So cheap, easy, portable and versatile. It's my mainstay for office potlucks.
Pasties. Little meat or cheese or veggie-filled pies that you can make with pre-made pastry mix or sticks. In the Olden Days (translation: I'm not sure when exactly, maybe the 19th and early 20th centuries) Welsh coal miners carried pasties to the mines to eat for their lunch, and nobody on earth was poorer than Welsh miners.
You can find a standard Welsh pasty at www.recipeland.com/recipe.epl?id=6510. This recipe calls for one big pasty, but you'd just cut smaller circles, like 6 inches. Ditto with some root vegetables added at www.recipeland.com/recipe.epl?id=24821. A hamburger pasty at www.recipeland.com/recipe.epl?id=31399. A cheese pasty at www.recipeland.com/recipe.epl?id=35589.
They're tasty, not real hard to make, nutritious and something different from the usual bake sale fare.
