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
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 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
Tablespoon of hot chili flakes ( I put that
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 :)
( you know - the not Giada person )
