Quiche recipe...

I've been asked to share the recipe I use to make a quiche, and here it is...
Sorry, no step-a-step pictures in this one... What I love more about this is that truly you can make the quiche with whatever you have in your fridge... Here it is.

4-5 servings

5 eggs
3/4 - 1 cup of half and half cream (to make it fluffy)
1/2 - 1 cup of shredded cheese (as much as you like cheese)
a bit more of shredded cheese to sprinkle the bottom of your casserole dish, mold you are using
flour (enough to sprinkle over the cheese, depends on the size of your casserole dish)
Veggies: I used onions, carrots, broccoli, green beans, tomato.
1 tsp butter

How to:::
Preheat oven at 350°F.
In a pan, cook the veggies on the butter until they are soft and crisp.
In a bowl mix eggs and half and half cream and whisk them together, add salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like to use, add the shredded cheese and mix.
I don't use a dough crust for my quiches, it saves me time and calories :o), so I make a cheese crust on the bottom...
On your casserole dish, sprinkle shredded cheese all over the bottom until covered. Then sprinkle flour on top of the cheese. there's no need to be all white and cover completly the cheese.
Add your veggies to your egg mixture, mix a bit and then add all of it to the casserole dish over the cheese and flour. Decorate with sliced tomato.

Put it in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center.

Enjoy it with a salad!!! you can use my Parsley dressing for it!

The great part of it is that once you have the eggs, half and half mixture, you can add whatever you want to the inside.
Here are some combos I've made:
** onion, bacon
** ham, cheese
** shrimp, asparagus
** tuna, shrimp
** ground meat and tomato
** sausage, bacon, onion

Remember to cook the inside first, maybe not all the way done, before adding it to the eggs mix!

See you soon!
