First Time Quiche

Zucchini Quiche

Zucchini Quiche

Today I made a quiche for the first time.  I didn’t really follow any recipe in particular, I just looked an several different recipes and got the gist of what goes in a quiche.  I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to put together, which was great because I had a lot to do around the house today.  Tomorrow Hubby’s bosses will be coming over for dinner so I was doing a lot of cleaning to do. 

Anyway I was pleased with the result although I found it to be a little wet, I think it needed another egg.  It was great to do because I was able to use up some veggies that I had left over and needed to be used before they went bad.  I used,onion, garlic, eggplant, zucchini and just a little bit of red and green peppers. And since Hubby requires every meal to have some meat I put some turkey sausage in too. 

My Quiche:

  • 1/2 zucchini thinly sliced
  • 1/2 eggplant cubed
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • some diced green & red peppers (I had about a quarter of both)
  • 3 turkey sausage links (casing removed)
  • 1 cup of cheese (I used a cheddar and monetary jack mix)
  • 3 eggs ( I think 4 would have been better)
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 pre-made crust

I first sauteed the onions, peppers and garlic in some olive oil. Once those softened a bit I added the eggplant and zucchini, season with salt and pepper. 

While that sauteed in another pan I cooked the sausage and broke it up.  When the sausage was done I added it to the veggies. 

In a bowl I combined the milk, eggs and cheese and whisked it together.   When well mixed, add sausage and veggies into bowl and mix. 

Pour mixture into crust and bake for 40 mins at 350 degrees.  The zucchini seemed to float to the top, I arranged them.

Hubby actuallly enjoyed the dish and I was quite filling. 

Be sure to come back.  I will be posting what I made for our little dinner party with Hubby’s bosses.  I am planning on a down home menu, arroz con gandules, pollo asado & amarillos.  For dessert I will do my Tres Leches again with coffee.  YUMMY!
