Are you a fan of Leanne Ely, The Dinner Diva? She is out in the world Saving Dinner. I was completely enthralled with her recent offering for a quiche recipe. I was not prepared for how utterly delicious and how ABSOLUTELY EASY it is to prepare.
Of course, you know Mother Connie. She had to put her spin on it so here’s what we had for lunch today:
Mother Connie’s Pared Down Version of The Dinner Diva’s Quiche
This will serve two hungry people twice. And both people will be happy two times, I guarantee it!
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 scosh (a scosh is my mom’s word for just a dab) of milk or water
salt and pepper just the way you like it. I like lots of pepper.
1/2 of a 10 oz package of frozen spinach, thaw and squeeze the excess moisture out (Save the other half for your next salad)
1 leek, sliced and soaked in salt water to get rid of the grit. Drain and saute until the leeks are tender.
4 oz taco cheese, grated
Beat the eggs, milk or water, and seasonings. Add the leeks. Into a greased pie plate, pour the whole works and top with the cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees-I started mine in a cold oven so the oven and the mixture could warm together. After 20 minutes, check for doneness. It will have a nice brown crust on top and should be firm. If you over bake it, your quiche will be tough. If you under bake it the eggs will be runny. YUCK
This far exceeded my expectations for lunch! I hardly had room for the chunk of Foccacia bread and dish of cinnamon applesauce I had set out! Here’s hoping you like this dish as much as we did.
We have two wedges left from this recipe; they will become breakfast sammies on Foccacia bread tomorrow! I can hardly wait to wake up to that hearty, protein-packed breakfast! With a small glass of juice, we’ll be set for a great, productive, healthy day!
