This recipe comes from a cookbook that I came across in one of the elementary school libraries where I worked.
I confess that I have not tried this one yet myself but will do soon. It looks delicious. I hope you will give this recipe a try. Enjoy!

  4. Stir in the flour, cook 2 minutes and add the beer, tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper
  5. Cook for 10 minutes
    Remove pan from heat
  6. Heat the cream in a separate pan but DO NOT boil

  8. Add the cream and eggs to the meat mixture and blend well

    "Baking Blind" refers to baking flan, pie and tart shells before filling is added. Line the pie plate with pastry, cover it with foil, or wax paper, and spread a layer of rice or beans over the foil. Bake the pastry shell in a preheated 400F oven for 15 minutes
  11. Remove pastry from oven and cool. Discard tin foil and beans.
