Summer’s Bounty Quiche

Print Friendly

summer bounty quiche

From a recent visit to our friends in Sewanee we came away with armloads of fresh out-of-their-garden produce!

We don’t have a garden this year and the summer’s bounty was such a lovely gift!  I did the usual cucumber and onion salad,  a luscious southern squash casserole, and then a super vegetable stir fry.  But, if you have been with me on My Daily Bread for very long you will know I love to make Quiche.  Quiche meets a ton of quick meal criteria:  easy, can use of leftovers from the refrigerator, almost always have the basics of milk and cheese on hand and then the best part — the family oohs and aahs over a tasty, lovely Quiche.

This is a crustless Quiche, which was necessary because my sous-chef dish-washing mom had just made an awesome peach pie and we sometimes have to draw the line and go crustless!  🙂

I filled this Quiche with fresh veggies, chopped ham, a couple different cheeses I had on hand!  Quiche is synonymous with create!
Use your favorite ingredients and you won’t be disappointed.

I have found there are just two basics for me:
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups whole milk
(and  1/2 cup cream is optional
if I have it on hand.)

Then the add-ons make your Quiche really pop!

Cheese – mix and match your favorite up to 1 1/2 cups – I almost always use some combination that includes pepper jack!

Vegetables – saute’ onions, garlic, zucchini, yellow squash, green peppers, broccoli straws, carrots and more!

Add in crispy bacon, chopped ham,  or shredded chicken … about 1 cup is usually enough.

Yum – no crust needed.  Just pour into the pan, slice some fresh tomatoes on top and pop in the oven!

Have a bountiful and blessed week,

I know, you know, I never met a Quiche I didn’t like.  So imagine my excitement when I saw this picture from Maureen at The Orgasmic Chef.  It is autumn in the United States and pumpkins and spice and all things nice are dancing in my head.  This includes butternut squash!

Maureen begins her blog post by saying, “The other day I was reading Chris Scheuers post about crustless mini-quiches. It was about 11am and I was determined to make one for lunch.”    I just smiled when I read that because I am totally one of those “I want to make that NOW” kind of cooks.  Birds of a feather and all that.

Bacon, Egg & Biscuit Casserole / Breakfast, Brunch or Dinner / John 21:12

Pretty much every Thursday I make breakfast food for dinner.  It is that time of the week where I am out of ideas, just plain tired, or I am hungry for a breakfast that doesn’t begin and end with oatmeal.

This past week I knew I had eggs, cheese, a little bit of leftover bacon, and a cup of (leftover) turkey sausage.  In my freezer I had some Pillsbury frozen biscuits.  (Don’t judge me … I keep them for an emergency … or for whenever I want a great biscuit fast!)

Sitting in front of my computer I decided to Google “eggs, biscuits, and sausage recipe”.  If you haven’t ever done that I highly recommend it.  Just search using whatever main ingredients you have on hand.  You never know what will pop up and in this case … a really fantastic recipe called Sausage, Egg and Biscuit Casserole from my recipes.com.

SONY DSC

I used some crumbled bacon and turkey sausage, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, eggs, milk and cut up frozen biscuits.  Oh my word was I surprised by this recipe!  My sous-chef dish-washing mom loved it and the Chief said “this is really great!”

You can easily start with the basic recipe and add or subtract anything you want or don’t want.  I can see this as an all-cheese recipe, onions and green peppers added, or how about some spicy Chorizo sausage served with salsa?

Whether it is 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, Sunday brunch, or Thursday night dinner … your family with love this casserole!

Happy Baking!
