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
hot sauce is a recommended side.
