Martha, my friend who gave me the delicious pasture-raised eggs, highlighted in the last post, just sent me this recipe that her mother used to make. The recipe allows for a lot of creativity and endless variation. And, Martha says; “People also like it because you don’t have to make a crust…a big obstacle for some cooks.” So, if you’re one of those who don’t like to make crust, maybe this is the quiche for you. I’ll bet it even tastes great with a crust too!
Grease a 10″ pie pan.
Place in the bottom of the pan:
4 oz. shredded cheese – any kind (swiss, jack, cheddar, mozzarella, or even ricotta)
7 slices cooked bacon, or ham or sausage
a few sauteed mushrooms, or other cooked vegetables, like peppers, broccoli or zucchini or carrots
Place in blender:
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 or 5 eggs
1/2 cup flour
2 T butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
other seasonings to taste
Blend for 60 seconds.
Pour into pie pan over other ingredients.
Bake in 350° oven for 35 – 45 minutes, or until firm.
Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
Keep unused portion refrigerated.
Reheats well in microwave, one slice at a time for about a minute.
