Ham, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Wraps / Zamotuljci sa šunkom, jajima i sirom

My, oh my, these wraps are truly a breakfast of the champions. They are super delicious and filling and can be made ahead of time and just reheated as needed. Since they make for a pretty big breakfast, they are a fantastic option when you’ll need more energy in the mornings. I actually had one of these before a pretty big hike and it kept me energized and satiated for the whole day.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 wraps / 1.69 EUR per wrap / 3.39 EUR for all)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 small onion (0.07 EUR)

1 green pepper (0.20 EUR)

4 eggs (0.80 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

2 large tortillas (0.53 EUR)

4 slices of smoked ham (1.07 EUR)

1 cup of shredded cheese (0.53 EUR)

Sriracha or some other hot sauce for serving (0.13 EUR)

IMGP8580

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Finely dice the onion on green pepper. Whisk the eggs with salt and black pepper. Place a skillet on medium heat. Add in the oil and sauté the onion and green pepper for about five minutes, until slightly caramelized. Pour in the whisked eggs and cook for about 1-2 minutes, while gently folding. Once the eggs are done, turn off heat and assemble the wraps.

Add two slices of ham to each tortilla. Top with the egg and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Wrap up and place on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until the tortillas slightly crisp up. If you are making these ahead of time, just wrap them tightly in aluminum foil before baking and refrigerate. When the wraps are crisped up to your liking, serve them immediately drizzled generously with Sriracha or any other hot sauce of your choice.

Evo vam baš jedan pravi doručak pobjednika. Ovi su zamotuljci jako ukusni i zasitni, a što je najbolje, mogu se pripremiti i unaprijed pa onda samo ugrijati po potrebi. Obzirom kako je ovo poprilično bogat doručak, odličnan je izbor za one dane kada ćete ujutro trebati više energije. Ja sam krknula jedan zamotuljak prije jednog žustrijeg planinarenja i zasitio me i napunio energijom za cijeli dan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 zamotuljka / 12,68 kn po zamotuljku / 25,36 kn za sve)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 mali luk (0,50 kn)

1 zelena paprika (1,50 kn)

4 jaja (6,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

2 velike tortilje (4,00 kn)

4 šnite dimljene šunke (8,00 kn)

1 šalica ribanog sira (4,00 kn)

Sriracha ili koji drugi ljuti umak za posluživanje (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Fino nasjeckajte luk i papriku. Jaja razmutite sa solju i paprom. Tavu stavite na srednju vatru pa dodajte u nju ulje i oko pet minuta dinstajte luk i papriku, sve dok se blago ne karameliziraju. Ulijte u tavu razmućena jaja te ih kuhajte 1-2 minute dok ih lagano preklapate špatulom. Kada su jaja gotova maknite sve sa vatre i složite zamotuljke.

Na svaku tortilju stavite dvije šnite šunke. Dodajte jaja, pa posipajte sa ribanim sirom. Složite svaku tortilju u zamotuljak, te stavite na pripremljen protvan. Pecite 10-15 minuta, dok se tortilje lagano ne zahrskaju. Ako pripremate zamotuljke unaprijed, samo ih prije pečenja dobro umotajte u aluminijsku foliju i čuvajte u hladnjaku, pa onda kasnije zapecite. Kada se zamotuljci zapeku po vašem ukusu, odmah ih poslužite obilno pokapane Srirachom ili kojim drugim ljutim umakom po vašem izboru.

Cheesy Salty Twists – The Lazy Way / Lijeni slanci frkanci sa sirom

This snack is so addictive and so easy to make. We’re taking a good old shortcut and using store-bought puff pastry. Of course, go ahead and make your own. But if you’re a lazy bum like I am, you’re definitely taking a shortcut and I won’t judge you.

IMGP8387

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 15 twists / 0.14 EUR per twist / 2.06 EUR for all)

For the twists:

400 grams of store-bought frozen puff pastry, thawed (1.00 EUR)

½ cup tomato puree (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp oregano (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup shredded gouda or other melty cheese of choice (0.40 EUR)

For the topping:

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

4 tbsp sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp cumin (0.07 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP8386

IMGP8391

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface into a thin square. Spread tomato puree on top, then sprinkle with oregano, black pepper, salt and shredded cheese. Fold the dough over in half to cover the filling. Brush with whisked egg, then generously sprinkle with sesame seeds, cumin and salt. Flip the dough over and repeat on the other side as well. Cut the dough into strips, then twist.

Spread the twists on a prepared baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown. These taste the best while hot right out of the oven and don’t really keep too well. So I guess you’ll just have to eat them all. 😀

IMGP8388


Ovaj snack je totalno zarazan, a jako lagan za pripremiti. Naravno, idemo prečicom i uzeti ćemo kupovno lisnato tijesto. S druge strane, ako imate vremena, živaca i volje, slobodno se bacite u avanturu pravljenja vlastitog lisnatog. No, ako ste ljenčina kao ja, definitivno ćete izabrati lakšu varijantu i nitko vas radi toga neće osuđivati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 15 frkanaca / 1,02 po frkancu / 15,37 za sve)

Za slance frkance:

400 g smrznutog kupovnog lisnatog tijesta, odmrznutog (7,50 kn)

½ šalice pasirane rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica origana (0,50 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica ribane gaude ili kojeg drugog topljivog sira po izboru (3,00 kn)

Za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

4 žlice sezama (1,00 kn)

1 žličica kima (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi razvaljajte tijesto u tanki kvadrat. Premažite pasiranom rajčicom, pa posipajte origanom, paprom, solju i ribanim sirom. Preklopite tijesto na pola tako da prekrijete sav nadjev. Premažite razmućenim jajem, pa obilno posipajte sezamom, kimom i solju. Preokrenite na drugu stranu i ponovite postupak. Tijesto narežite na trake pa ih onda zafrknite.

Frkance rasporedite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite oko 20 minuta, dok ne budu hrskavi i zlatno smeđi. Biti će najukusniji dok su još topli, friški iz pećnice i nisu baš neki spektakl kada odstoje. Tako da ćete ih jednostavno morati odmah srediti. 😀

Cheesy Salty Twists – The Lazy Way / Lijeni slanci frkanci sa sirom

Goat Cheese Salty Fingers / Slani prstići sa kozjim sirom

I admit, I initially intended to make these taste more like pizza. However, strong goat cheese that I’ve used simply overpowered the other flavors. These turned out super delicious anyway and awesome for snacking. If you’re not a fan of strong cheeses, though, definitely pick a more tame option for overall milder flavor.

IMGP8382

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 20 fingers / 0.07 EUR per finger / 1.37 EUR for all)

For the dough:

1 and ½ cup all-purpose flour (0.10 EUR)

1 and ½ cup whole wheat flour (0.15 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 cup pork lard (0.20 EUR)

¼ cup cold water (–)

For the filling:

½ cup tomato puree (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp oregano (0.07 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

½ cup shredded hard goat’s cheese (0.33 EUR)

Optional – for the topping:

1 egg (0.20 EUR)

4 tbsp sesame seeds (0.13 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Additional:

Flour for sprinkling (0.01 EUR)

IMGP8379

IMGP8380

METHOD:

Make the dough by whisking together both flours and salt. Add in lard and a few tablespoons of cold water. Mix and keep adding water until you are able to form shabby dough. Flatten the dough into disk, tightly wrap into cling foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough out on well-floured surface into a square. Spread tomato puree on top, then sprinkle with oregano, black pepper and shredded cheese. Fold the dough over in half to cover the filling, then cut into finger-sized strips. Brush each strip with whisked egg, then generously sprinkle with sesame seeds and a bit of salt. Flip the fingers over and repeat the sesame treatment on the other side as well.

Spread the fingers on prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Priznajem da mi je inicijalna namjera bila da ovi snack prstići imaju više šmek po pizzi. Međutim, jaki kozji sir koji sam upotrijebila jednostavno je prevagnuo i zakamuflirao ostale arome. Neovisno o tome, meni su prstići bili i dalje super i ukusni. Ali ako niste ljubitelj jakog sira, upotrijebite neki sa pitomijom aromom za uravnoteženiji i blaži okus.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 20 prstića / 0,51 kn po prstiću / 10,27 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

1 i ½ šalica glatkog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 i ½ šalica integralnog brašna (1,15 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 šalica svinjske masti (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice hladne vode (–)

Za nadjev:

½ šalice pasirane rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica origana (0,50 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ šalice ribanog tvrdog kozjeg sira (2,50 kn)

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

4 žlice sezama (1,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Tijesto pripremite tako da u zdjeli prvo pomiješate oba brašna i sol. Dodajte mast i par žlica hladne vode. Miješajte i malo pomalo dodajte vodu sve dok vam se ne oformi labavo tijesto. Tijesto spljoštite u disk, čvrsto umotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i stavite u hladnjak na barem pola sata.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Tijesto razvaljajte na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi u četverokut. Premažite tijesto pasiranom rajčicom, pa posipajte origanom, paprom i ribanim sirom. Preklopite tijesto na pola i režite u trakice veličine prsta. Svaku trakicu premažite razmućenim jajetom, pa obilno posipajte sezamom i malo posolite. Preokrenite i ponovite postupak i sa druge strane.

Prstiće raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 25-30 minuta, dok ne budu hrskavi i zlatno-smeđi. Poslužite tople ili na sobnoj temperaturi.

Pork Crisps and Farmer’s Cheese Scones / Pogačice sa čvarcima i svježim sirom

My parents me gave a bunch of pork crisps which, honestly, weren’t that great to munch on. So, instead of throwing them out, I decided to bake them into scones. These scones turned out super flakey and delicious and were really easy to make, so I definitely suggest you try them out.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields .scones / 0.23 EUR per scone / 4.53 EUR for all)

For the scones:

2 cups pork crisps (2.00 EUR)

2 tbsp pork lard (0.03 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

1 cup farmer’s cheese (0.80 EUR)

1 cup buttermilk (0.40 EUR)

2 cups all-purpose flour (0.13 EUR)

2 cups whole-wheat flour (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp baking powder (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

imgp8125

imgp8135

METHOD:

Throw the pork crisps into a food processor and pulse into a paste. Add in lard, eggs, cheese and buttermilk, then pulse until combined.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add in the liquid ingredients, then stir everything together until a shabby dough forms. Dump everything on a clean work surface, then knead briefly. Don’t work the dough too much, just until everything comes together. Divide the dough into two, shape into discs, then wrap each disc tightly into cling foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to two days in advance.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and cut into scones. Optionally, brush each scone with whisked egg and sprinkle with toppings. Spread the scones on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, until deep golden brown. Serve warm.

You can reheat these again in a microwave or in the oven. The scones will keep tightly wrapped and refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.

Moji su mi mama i tata dali nešto čvaraka, koji iskreno na žalost baš i nisu bili najfiniji. Umjesto da ih bacim, odlučila sam probati čvarke iskoristiti za čvarkuše. Drago mi je da sam tako napravila, jer su peciva ispala baš fina i hrskava, a još su uz to bila i jako jednostavna za pripremiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 čvarkuša / 1,69 kn po čvarkuši / 33,82 za sve)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice čvaraka (15,00 kn)

2 žlice svinjske masti (0,20 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (6,00 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (3,00 kn)

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

2 šalice integralnog brašna (1,50 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

Po želji za posipanje:

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

2 žlice sezama (0,50 kn)

2 žličice kima (1,00 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Čvarke ubacite u multipraktik i propulsirajte u pastu. Dodajte mast, jaja, sir i kiselo mlijeko, pa pulsirajte dok se sve ne sjedini.

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte skupa oba brašna , prašak za pecivo, sol i papar. Dodajte unutra tekuće sastojke i miješajte dok ne dobijete labavo tijesto. Sve iskrenite na čistu radnu plohu, pa kratko mijesite. Nemojte previše mijesiti tijesto, već samo onoliko koliko treba da bi se sve sjedinilo. Podijelite tijesto na dva dijela, pa svaki dio oblikujte u zaseban disk te ga čvrsto umotajte u prozirnu foliju. Stavite u hladnjak na barem 30 minuta, a do dva dana unaprijed.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Protvan obložite papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Tijesto razvaljajte između dva lista papira za pečenje te ga režite u pogačice. Po želji pogačice premažite razmućenim jajetom i posipajte ostalim dodatcima. Pogačice raširite po pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 20-30 minuta, dok ne budu zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.

Čvarkuše možete bez problema podgrijati u mikrovalnoj ili u pećnici, a držati će dobro zamotane u hladnjaku barem 3-4 dana.

Cheesy Buckwheat and Veggie Casserole (vegetarian) / Složenac od heljde, sira i povrća (vegetarijanski)

This dish is super simple to make, but an absolute bomb. It’s also a great way to use up any leftovers, especially if you have some precooked buckwheat lying around. You could basically do this with any other grain as well. The casserole itself is very filling and satisfying and can also be prepared in advance to reheat when necessary.

I’ve tried baking the casserole both in muffin tins and in a small ramekin and I feel that the ramekin is a better option here, as the texture was too delicate and the muffins simply wouldn’t hold themselves together. However, they still tasted great and were a great portable option, as long as I left everything intact for transport in the silicone muffin molds.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 generous servings / 0.91 EUR per serving / 5.44 EUR for all)

For buckwheat:

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

1 large purple onion (0.13 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

1 cup raw buckwheat (0.67 EUR)

2 and ½ cups vegetable broth (0.33 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp tomato paste (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

1 bay leaf (0.03 EUR)

2 carrots (0.20 EUR)

Large handful of fresh baby spinach (0.67 EUR)

For the casserole:

3 eggs (0.60 EUR)

1 cup crème fraiche (0.67 EUR)

1 cup farmer’s cheese (0.80 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 cups shredded cheese (0.93 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

Additional:

Oil for greasing the pan (0.01 EUR)

IMGP7905

IMGP7906

METHOD:

Wash and peel all the veggies. Finely dice the onion and mince garlic. Add the oil to a pot on high heat. Saute onion for about five minutes until translucent, then add in garlic and cook for a minute until fragrant. Add in buckwheat, veggie broth, garlic powder, salt, pepper, tomato paste, Gochujang and bay leaf. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat and cook with a lid cracked open for 10-15 minutes, until buckwheat is cooked through.

Meanwhile, while the buckwheat is cooking, shred the carrot on a box grater. Once the buckwheat is done, remove from heat and stir in spinach and shredded carrot. Put the lid back on and the veggies will wilt down from residual heat. Allow the buckwheat to cool a bit before proceeding, so you can also cook the buckwheat in advance, up to few days ahead.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a baking dish and set aside. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, crème fraiche, farmer’s cheese and salt. Stir about two thirds of cheese mix into cooled buckwheat, along with half of the shredded cheese. Transfer the buckwheat into a prepared baking dish, top with remaining egg mixture and sprinkle with reserved cheese. Crack some black pepper on top and bake for about 30 minutes, until bubbly and golden-brown on top. Serve warm.

Ovo jelo je jako jednostavno za pripremiti, a totalna je bomba. Također je izvrstan način da iskoristite razne ostatke, a posebno ako vam se pri ruci nađe i kuhane heljde. Zapravo bi ste umjesto heljde lako mogli upotrijebiti i bilo koju drugu žitaricu. Ovaj je složenac super zasitan i ukusan, a također se možete pripremiti i unaprijed te podgrijati prema potrebi.

Ja sam složenac pokušala peći i u maloj posudi i kalupima za mafine, a čini mi se da je posuda bila bolja opcija jer je tekstura složenca predelikatna, pa mafini nisu baš najbolje držali oblik. Svejedno su bili jako ukusni i dobra prijenosna opcija, sve dok bi složenac držala u silikonskim mafin kalupima prilikom transporta.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 izdašnih porcija / 6,78 kn po porciji / 40,67 kn za sve)

Za heljdu:

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki ljubičasti luk (1,00 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 šalica sirove heljde (5,00 kn)

2 i ½ šalice povrtnog temeljca (2,50 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

1 lovorov list (0,20 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg baby špinata (5,00 kn)

Za složenac:

3 jaja (4,50 kn)

1 šalica milerama (5,00 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (6,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 šalice ribanog sira (7,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti protvan (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite i ogulite sve povrće. Fino nasjeckajte luk i češnjak. Ulje stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri, pa pet minuta prodinstajte luk, dok ne postane staklast. Ubacite češnjak te kuhajte minutu da zamiriši. Dodajte heljdu, temeljac, češnjak u prahu, sol, papar, koncentrat od rajčice, Gochujang i lovor. Pustite da zavrije, pa smanjite vatru i kuhajte 10-15 minuta sa odškrinutim poklopcem, dok heljda ne bude gotova.

U međuvremenu, dok se heljda kuha, naribajte mrkvu. Kada je heljda gotova, maknite ju s vatre i umiješajte u nju špinat i ribanu mrkvu. Vratite poklopac na lonac i ostavite da miruje, kako bi povrće povenulo od zaostale topline. Pustite da se heljda ohladi prije nego nastavite, tako da heljdu zapravo možete skuhati i do par dana unaprijed.

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Lagano namastite posudu za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U zdjelici pomiješajte jaja, mileram, svježi sir i sol. Oko dvije trećine te smjese umiješajte u ohlađenu heljdu skupa sa pola količine ribanog sira. Heljdu sada preselite u pripremljenu posudu, pa po vrhu rasporedite ostatak smjese svježeg sira i jaja i posipajte preostalim ribanim sirom. Začinite crnim paprom i pecite oko 30 minuta, dok sve ne bude lijepo zapečeno i zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.

Spinach and Cheese Cornbread (vegetarian) / Kukuruzna zlevanka sa špinatom i sirom (vegetarijanska)

This cornbread comes together super quickly and tastes the best warm, when freshly baked. Luckily, it also keeps well refrigerated and will be just as good once reheated. It’s a great breakfast, brunch, dinner, or snack option and can also work as a full meal if served with a big salad.

Fold in baby spinach and transfer the batter into a prepared pan. Dollop the remaining cheese onto batter, even everything out with a spatula and sprinkle with black pepper.

Bake for 25 minutes, until the cake is golden and a skewer inserted inside comes out clean. Allow the cornbread to cool for about ten minutes before slicing and serving.

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Namastite pravokutni protvan i obložite ga papirom za pečenje, pa ga stavite na stranu. U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, sol i prašak za pecivo. Dodajte unutra jaja, mileram, ¾ šalice svježeg sira i ulje. Promiješajte da se sve sjedini, a po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode ako vam je smjesa pregusta. Nježno umiješajte špinat i smjesu preselite u pripremljeni protvan. Rasporedite ostatak sira po površini smjese, sve poravnajte špatulom i posipajte paprom.

Pecite oko 25 minuta, dok zlevanka ne bude zlatno-žuta, a testni štapić koji upiknete ne izađe čist. Pustite da se zlevanka ohladi desetak minuta prije nego ju narežete i poslužite.

METHOD:

First prepare and season the meat, so it has a bit of a time to sit while you assemble the rest. Thinly slice the beef rump, making sure you are cutting against the grain. Toss the meat strips with oil, salt and pepper and set aside to rest while you make everything else.

Thinly slice the onions and add them to a non-stick skillet with a tablespoon of oil on a medium heat. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, then cook for about ten minutes, until the onions are softened and caramelized. When the onions are already soft and nicely browned, sprinkle them with a bit of brown sugar and cook for another minute or two for that extra punch. Remove from the skillet and keep warm.

Add the spinach and minced garlic to the same skillet and season with salt and pepper. Give a good stir and cook for a minute or two, just until the spinach wilts down. Remove from the skillet and also keep warm.

If needed, wipe the skillet down with a paper towel before adding in sliced beef rump.Cook for 3-4 minutes, until thoroughly cooked on all sides.

Once you have everything prepared, assemble your sandwiches. Thinly spread some mustard on toasted bread, then top with Brie, spinach, beef and onions. Finally, drizzle a bit of Sriracha (or any other hot sauce of your choosing) over everything and dig in. To completely round the meal, serve the sandwiches with a big leafy salad.

(Za 2 porcije / 13,72 kn po porciji / 27,43 kn za sve)

Za meso:

150 g junećeg buta (9,00 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

Za karamelizirani luk:

2 velika luka (1,50 kn)

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Za špinat:

Veliki pregršt baby špinata (5,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

Za sendviče:

2 velike, debele šnite tostiranog kruha (2,00 kn)

2 žličice senfa (0,60 kn)

100 g Brie sira (7,50 kn)

Malo Sriracha umaka (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo pripremite i začinite meso, tako da ima vremena odmoriti dok spremate sve ostalo. Tanko narežite but na trakice, pazeći da režete poprečno od vlakana. Pomiješajte meso sa uljem, solju i paprom i stavite na stranu.

Tanko narežite luk i sa žlicom ulja bacite na neprijanjajuću tavu na umjerenoj vatri. Začinite luk sa solju te kuhajte desetak minuta, dok ne omekša i ne karamelizira se. Kada luk već dobije smećkastu boju, posipajte sa malo smeđeg šećera i kuhajte još koju minutu-dvije, za završni štih. Maknite iz tave i držite na toplom.

U istu tavu ubacite špinat sa češnjakom, solju i paprom. Dobro promiješajte i kuhajte samo minutu-dvije, koliko je potrebno da špinat povene. Maknite iz tave i također držite na toplom.

Po potrebi, tavu prebrišite kuhinjskim ručnikom prije nego u nju stavite meso. Kuhajte 3-4 minute, dok ne bude gotovo sa svih strana.

Kada su vam svi sastojci spremni, složite sendviče. Tostirani kruh tanko premažite senfom. Stavite brie, špinat, junetinu i luk. Za kraj sve pokapajte Srirachom ili kojim drugim ljutim umakom po vašem izboru i navalite. Da zaokružite obrok, sendviče poslužite sa velikom zelenom salatom.
