Easter Påske Pie
The other day slave stumbled on a recipe for Easter Pie. Never heard of it! So it became imperative to study, research and come up with an easy way to fix it.
Easter pie is a family tradition for many Italians. Yet almost every family made it a different way. Depending on what village your family comes from, the Easter Pie can vary a great deal. Some are like a quiche, some like a pizza on its side with a part rolled over. Some can even be like a rice pie but it generally has a combo of meat and cheese (chunks of ham, pepperoni, several cheeses, etc) between two crusts.
An Easter Pie is to be served on the day before Easter at noon to signify the end of Lent and to break the fast. Nothing breaks a fast like pie crusts and a big collection of meats, cheese, and eggs! What a delicious way to celebrate the ability to eat again.
With such variations possible, slave thought: “Why not try a Danish Version?” Hope no one finds offense, it merely is an attempt to should how this tasty meal can fit into many local cuisines.
