quiche-eater

So I made the quiche. Chelsea asked in comments if I had a good recipe. Um...not really. I took frozen spinach and thawed it and squeezed the excess moisture out, chopped 8 mushrooms, 4 scallions and 8 leftover pieces of steamed asparagus and mixed them up. I added a good 2 handfuls of grated parmesan cheese (let's say a cup) for filling. I browned a Mrs. Smith's deep dish piecrust at 400 degrees. I laid all the veggie filling into the crust, then mixed 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup half and half, and 4 eggs and slowly poured it over the pie. I baked it for an hour at 350 degrees.

I did learn that one can make a crustless quiche, as I had too much filling left over. I buttered some mini-souffle cups, and put the filling into them and baked them a little less time; they were delicious, too.

My quiches vary, according to whatever I have laying around. I really like broccoli and bacon and smoked cheddar for a quiche. Yesterday's was an effort to get rid of the asparagus and mushrooms, both of which were about to turn.

I'm off to the shower and then on to the post office and to walk at Makapuu Flats with Marie. I'll try for a coherent post later on; there's a lot I want to write about, it's just taking time to do it.

It's that easy! I know, I had the same attitude that quiche had to be complicated...funny, I don't make it as often as I should, given that it is easy.
