To some people, making a quiche can seem like a daunting task, but I find that its one of those ‘kitchen sink’ type of meals. What I mean is I tend to throw everything but the kitchen sink in and it always comes out like an impressive gourmet feat!
Take yesterday’s creation – *I didn’t measure anything but have recreated the process here:
What You’ll Need:
1 ready made pie crust
Pie tin (or bottomless quiche tin – I used my new one for the first time!)
Remaining swiss chard stalks – 1 c. chopped
15 oz carton of egg beaters
3 whole eggs
1/2 c. shredded turkey bacon (cooked)
1/2 c. shredded mozzerella cheese
1 large broccoli spear (steamed)
1/2 c. greek yogurt
1 Tbsp minced onion
1 Tbsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp ground mustard
1 tsp of pepper
Lay out pie crust in greased tin, prick with fork generously and bake for 8 minutes @ 350º
Meanwhile, toss all ingredients (besides cheese and bacon) into a blender and puree!
Then layer in cheese, bacon and mixture onto crust until all ingredients are inside. Bake @ 350º for 35 mintues or until a toothpick comes out cleanly when inserted into the quiche.
Let cool and enjoy! I use this process for any kind of quiche. It’s quick and easy, all I really need is eggs and a pie crust, other than that I use up whatever I have stuck in the fridge!
