What do you use this for? is probably one of the most common questions I get (after Did you make this?). Since I've not been spending all my time in the studio making pots this last week, I've been able to spend time in the kitchen, using pottery. For example, I started by blind-baking a single pie crust in an Off Center Ceramics pie plate (9 minutes at 475° F). Dice up some bacon and fry it down while the crust waits.

Microwave/steam some broccoli florets in a covered small baking dish while you dice the onions, slice the mushrooms and shred the cheese. Sweat the onions and sauté the mushrooms in the bacon fat, then drain. Load everything into the crust, bacon and onions first, then broccoli, mushrooms, and cheese.

In a small batter bowl, whisk together 5 eggs, 2 cups half-and-half, 3/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper and 1/8 tsp. cayenne. Pour over all the other stuff in the pie crust.

Bake 15 minutes at 425° F, then drop the oven to 300° for another 35 or 40 minutes. Let stand at least 15 or 20 minutes before slicing in, or cool completely and serve at room temperature.

There, that's three uses for pottery (four if you count the soup bowl holding the sliced mushrooms). And a darned good meal.
