QUICHE, baby!

24 Dec
FYI: Me and my crew are traveling for the next few days for the holidays, so no blog posts for a few days! SORRY! But, READ ON anyways!

Quiche sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Well, it is one of the easiest things to make that is so incredibly delicious for no effort. AND, my favorite part is you can throw anything into a quiche and odds are it’ll be good! My mom always puts spinach in hers and we ate it up as kids and didn’t care it was in there because it was so great!
As I was saying before, its a great way to use up some items in your fridge like leftover meat, vegetables, little chunks of cheese, your last few eggs, etc. etc..
If you want to impress someone who’s coming over for lunch or dinner, make quiche and have a simple mixed greens salad! Its a light and fresh meal that still can fill you up that doesn’t cost a whole lot.
Quiche is a fancy word for savory pie. All quiches typically have pie crust, eggs, cheese and some kind of filling like vegetables, meat or a combination of both. The filling is where you can take liberties and use whatever the heck you want! Just make sure you follow the rules which are:
1. Have a crust (preferably a premade super flaky one, cause you want this to be an easy fast meal!)
2. Fill with eggs–around 5 or 6
3. Add in lots of cheese
4. OF COURSE have salt and pepper
Thats it!
So, go wild my fellow cooks! You may be surprised how awesome these turn out!
Now, you can start with my Turkey Cheddar Broccoli Quiche, or try a Swiss Cheese and Ham Quiche, or a Southwest Quiche, or a Spinach and Tomato Quiche like my mom always made! Any way you make it, it’ll turn out perfectly!
This is a great way to sneak in vegetables for all you pesky eaters, too! I love fooling them! It makes my day. Doesn’t take much. I’m easy to please, I suppose.
Impress all your friends and make a quiche today! …….or tomorrow!
Turkey Cheddar & Broccoli Quiche
1 9 inch frozen pie shell
5 large eggs
splash of half & half (or milk)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 green onion, chopped
1 1/4 cup steamed broccoli florets
1/2 cup deli turkey, cubed
1 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a fork, poke a few holes into the bottom of the pie shell. In large bowl, crack eggs. Whisk in milk and seasonings. Stir in rest of ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 30 minutes or until quiche is completely set (doesn’t giggle at all). Cool 10-15 minutes before serving. Great warm or at room temperature. Really great when served with soup or freshly tossed salad!
