- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- Butter, for pie dish
- 1 cup grated Cheddar
- 2 ounces small chorizo or pepperoni slices, about 3/4-inch diameter, optional
- Special equipment: 1 round ovenproof pie dish, 8 or 9 inches in diameter
Butter a round ovenproof pie dish, then stir half the grated cheese into the batter, before pouring it into the dish.
Bake for 30 minutes. Take the dish out of the oven, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and add the chorizo or pepperoni, if using, - or anything else - now, too. Return the dish to the oven and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes to make sure it's heated through.
Leftovers can be reheated the next day in a hot oven for 8 to10 minutes, but sadly they won't be as nice as the first time around.
