EASY QUICHE !

You know those days when you look in the fridge and there doesn't seem to be much to do anything with?

This recipe is for one THOSE days...........some left over veggies - a few eggs - a little cheese and a ready made pie crust if you're lazy ( I am ) or a beautiful home made one if you're able to do that ( I'm not ) and you have the most delicious meal :)


Preheat oven to 350

Ingredients:

3 eggs if you're using a store bought crust ( you'll see why later ) if you're making your own crust
you'll use 4 eggs
1 cup of broccoli
1 cup of cauliflower
1 onion
1 cups of milk ( I use heavy cream but you can use either or even half and half it )
1 cup of mozerella or swiss shredded cheese
Parmesean cheese
Tablespoon of hot chili flakes ( I put that $^@^% on everything LOL )
Garlic - one clove
Tablespoon of fine herbs
Pinch of salt pepper an chives
Tablespoon of butter


A lot of recipes for quiche call for boiling the veggies for a little before starting -
I don't do that
After chopping everything up small


I saute the onion in a frying pan using the tablespoon of butter for 5 minutes or so and then add my vegetables


Cooking for 2 or 3 minutes at the most................the quiche is going to go in the oven and cook for quite a while so the veggies don't need more time than that !
Next I start on the egg mixture - adding my cream ( or milk or both )


and then everything else


place your veggies in the pie shell


Add your cheeses on top of the mixure


Now the next step is very very important - especially if you have a blog AND you've just joined instagram because as you know you must get pics of each step of the process - so while holding your phone in one hand and pouring the egg mixture over the veggies and cheese be sure to pay attention and grab a shot of the eggs running over the side of the pie tin and down the table and butcher block.


John says - What the HELL is going on here - get off the damn stool with your camera for God Sakes
Suzan says - I was sharing my quiche recipe - I didn't do this on purpose
John says - GET OFF THE STOOL BEFORE YOU KILL YOURSELF !
John says - ARE YOU TAKING A PICTURE OF THAT MESS?
John says - WHAT KIND OF BLOGGING ARE YOU DOING?
John says - I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE READS YOU
Suzan says - It was all going too perfect - I just knew something was going to happen
Suzan says - Get out of the kitchen please - I think you jinxed me
John roars - So..........what are we having for supper?  Hotdogs ?

But we had QUICHE SUZANNE

And it was delicious - even if my photos are crappy ( forgive me - the momentum was lost in the mayhem )
You just gotta trust me sometimes.............so after pouring the egg mixture over the veggies - you place it in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes - until sharp knife inserted comes out clean
( DO NOT USE SHARP KNIFE ON BETTER HALF AS THEY STAND THERE LAUGHING )


Hey if you're looking for perfection you go to Giada's site
but this was delicious none the less.


PLEASE BELIEVE ME?
Have a wonderful day everyone !
Make a quiche or something :)
Hugs,
Me

It just occurred to me - just this exact moment actually - that my life is a constant series of moments coming to screeching halts..................
Have to work on that.

  1. I was just wondering how on earth you were able to hold the camera and pour the eggs and milk mixture when I got to the part about the spill. Your pictures are beautiful as always even if you did have to make a mess to get them. Wish I had some veggies in the house so that I can make the recipe. I will just have to pin it for later. Thanks for sharing it.

  5. This looks delicious, even with the spill. I use guyere cheese, too. I think that's misspelled, oops. I haven't made one in a while and I'll have to put it on the list.

  10. I'm getting used to cooking with a camera in one hand. I admit the camera does get a little crusted with food and you have to be a bit of a contortionist to get a photo of something being stirred. ooo - Here's and idea; have John pore the eggs while you take the pics. Feel free to tell him I said so.

  11. What a great story. I have never gotten the hang of photographing something while doing it. Kudos to you! I am assuming that you were standing on the stool in order to get a shot from above. Stay safe!
