Chicken and Asparagus Mini Tarts (Tarteletter med Høns i Asparges)




These are a well-loved classic Danish dish eaten as an appetizer or a main dish and this recipe was found on Arla

Serves 12

1 chicken
1 L water
2 sweet onions, roughly chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
2 leeks, roughly chopped
3 whole cloves
3 bay leaves
1 tsp kosher salt
2 jars of white asparagus pieces (each ca. 330 g)
60 g butter
60 g flour
4 dl broth from the chicken
1 tsp kosher salt
fresh-ground pepper
25 mini pie shells

Cress for garnish

If not done already, remove the innards from the chicken. Wash the chicken well. Bring the chicken and water to a boil in a large pot. Skim the broth and add onion, carrots, leeks, cloves, bay leaves, and salt. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let cook for ca. 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Take the chicken and vegetables out of the broth. Discard the vegetables. Strain the broth and skim the fat off- reserve 4 dl for using now and save the rest for later. Let the chicken cool down enough to handle and pull the meat off like one does pulled pork.

Strain the asparagus and reserve the liquid that comes out of the jars. Melt butter in a thick-bottomed pot on medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Add the asparagus water and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil again. Add the chicken, asparagus, salt, and pepper. Cook on low, stirring occasionally, for ca 2 minutes.

Bake the mini pie shells according to the package directions (heck, do this right off the bat and just warm them up when you’re ready to serve!) Pour ca. 3/4 dl chicken mixture into each pie shell. Garnish with cress and serve immediately.

Three-Cheese Quiche (Tærte med tre slags oste)



This is Lone Landmand’s recipe. I found it on Ude og Hjemme


200 g flour
50 g breadcrumbs
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
100 g butter
2 tbsp cold water


100 g Gouda
100 g Emmenthal
100 g Comté or mildly aged Cheddar
4 eggs
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 minced red jalapenos or another mild chili (unless you want to use a hot variety)
1½ dl cream
1½ tbsp dijon mustard


Dough: Blend flour, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper together, then knead the butter into the mixture. Add water, when the butter is finely distributed, and gather the dough quickly. Pres it out into a large, greased pie pan- cover the sides first and then distribute it down into the bottom. Place the pan in the freezer for 1/2 an hour and preheat your oven to 200 C (not convection.)


Filling: Grate the three cheeses and blend them with egg, salt, pepper, cayenne, chili pepper, and cream.


Quiche: Remove the pan from the freezer and set it into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then spread mustard over the bottom as soon as you take the pan out of the oven.
Pour the filling into the pre-baked crust and bake for about 30 minutes or until set, depending on your oven.
Serve the cheese quiche warm, and you have a refined dish for your lunch table.
