the ‘fridge contributes to the quiches

paula deen has this amazing quiche recipe…she really does.  a dear ‘ole friend brought me a whole pie! of it last week.  apart from its tasty attributes, this offering also came with intangible blessings.   she and i (and miss e) enjoyed it for lunch.  there was still enough for me to serve it for dinner!  (do you know how exciting it is when i don’t have to think about what to make for dinner?   and even more exciting when it’s homemade and brought to me!  and a third level of excitement when there’s still some left for hubby’s lunch?!!  and because i didn’t have to make dinner i had time to vacuum the house and take miss e to the park!!!  can you guess who just became my newest bff??!!)

after she and her little bear left, i promptly looked up paula deen’s recipe.  the recipe really doesn’t fail to be a paula deen: six eggs, heavy cream, bacon, cheese…as much as i wouldn’t mind having another paula deen quiche, my main goal was to feed the masses, and not to impress the critics.

i made a total of six quiches today.  four for lunch, two for dinner.  (i was able to chop/grate all the ingredients last night.)

1) zucchini + deli turkey*, 2) broccoli + onions*, 3) swiss chard + deli turkey^, 4) brown mushroom + asparagus^  (all these ingredients i had in the refrigerator already)

*with cheddar cheese, ^with pepper jack cheese

  • each quiche had about 2 cups of the “solid” ingredients combined (eg. 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini + 1/2 cup chopped deli turkey)
  • 1 cup of cheddar or pepper jack cheese
  • 4 eggs + 1 cup milk
  • layer all of the above ingredients into one 9 in. frozen pie crust

bake at 375 degrees F, 35-45 minute

hot sauce is a recommended side.
