When making this recipe use the best honey you can get, I was given this recipe by my aunt, which I will treasure. As these are very popular in Terceira island ,which is in the acores. They are very dense and delicious. Enjoy.
A trulty delicious custard tartlet. They might not look very good but everyone who tastes them loves them. I have to have them at every party I give. A traditional Portuguese pastry. Not sure about the prep or cook times, I only made them once many years ago, its easier to buy them ;-) adapted from "Foods of the Azores Islands" by Deolinda Maria Avila (Self-published, 1977) Makes 12 pastries Make sure the pastry ingredients are well chilled and the custard ingredients are at room temperature. The pastry is partially baked before filling to eliminate an uncooked pastry layer that sometimes can result.
A traditional Portuguese dish. Serve this with thinly cut french fries, rice and a salad of mixed greens with a vinaigrette dressing. I love eating this when I go back home - it is so good! I only make it once a year - DH won't eat cod. If he only knew what he was missing! Enjoy! Prep time includes cooling time for cod.
Posted on behalf of a request. Here in Toronto (which has a large Portuguese community), every Portuguese food store likely sells bifana; except for the bakeries, I've seen it frequently. It's very tasty -- I've never made it, but I've bought it on occasion and eaten it at my Portuguese girlfriend's home many times as well. Bifana is regarded more as a snack than a meal. This recipe is from "Uma Casa Portuguesa" (Portuguese Home Cooking) by Carla Azevedo.
This recipe honors the Portuguese explorers who did so much to introduce peppers to the Old World. Try to start this the day before you plan to serve it so the paste can really flavor the meat. For Chicken variation, see directions in steps. Nice served with rice. From Eating Well.
