I had to take a dish to church (Yes, they let me go to church. Disciples of Christ don’t care who they let in.).
ANYWAY, I had to take a dish, and Charlie said, “Why don’t you make a quiche, since we have all those eggs?”
So I did.
Yesterday, on the Fatal Foodies blog, I posted how I made my first perfect pie crust.
While the crust was chilling, I made the filling. –No extra charge for the poem. Yeah, that’s how I roll.
Julia Child said to break an egg into a measuring cup, then add milk to the 1/2 cup line. For each egg, you add milk to equal 1/2 cup. I used two eggs, so I added milk to the 1 cup line. I also added salt, marjoram, and a little squirt of plain American yellow mustard.
I let that sit to knock the chill off it, and gently sauteed diced onion and sliced mushrooms. When they were about done, I added some spinach (this was from a can, although fresh is always nicer) and a little grating of nutmeg.I preheated the oven to 450F, put the pie crust in, and let it cook for about 7 minutes — until it started to bubble up. Then I took it out and turned the oven down to 350. I put the mushroom stuff in the bottom, topped it with grated cheese, and poured the egg-and-milk over it.
The recipe said to cook it for 30 minutes, but this took closer to an hour, probably because I used two eggs instead of one.That little guy on the side was a single I made for Charlie. He said he’d never be able to eat that much, and he’d leave half for me. He ate it all.
The quiche was a hit at church, especially with the guys. They didn’t even notice it didn’t have any ham or bacon in it!
