I had a hankerin' (do people even have hankerin's anymore?) for quiche last night, so we made it happen today. I did not meal plan this week, much to my disorganization and detriment. Anyway, this quiche kicked much butt. Here's my recipe.


Filling ingredients:
  • about 10 golden cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • a handful of wilted spinach
  • a handful of sliced fresh mushrooms
  • about 4 ounces grated sharp Cheddar
  • a quarter of a yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 5 beaten eggs
  • a tablespoon or so of Emeril's Essence, plus a good dash of garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup (soy)milk
Plus a pie crust for a 9-inch pie

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Whisk your eggs in a bowl, then fold in everything else you want in the quiche(in this case, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, spinach, spices, cheese, milk). Pour into your crust (which you have carefully laid into a pie pan), and bake for about 50 minutes covered in foil, then 10 more minutes uncovered. Let it cool and settle a bit, then slice up and enjoy like crazy. I made the filling in the morning, then worked all day and asked the mister to pour the filling into the crust and bake it. Presto, dinner in a hurry! Now, go listen to Stevie Wonder records and have a hard apple cider, because you worked hard today. Go you!
