quick quiche recipe

After a long hot and humid summer where I avoided turning on the oven today's gray drizzly day made me want to cook a proper dinner.

I settled on a quiche with roasted Parmesan potatoes and asparagus. Liam literally had to choke down the food while plugging his nose (and that was only accomplished with a promise of five peanut m&m's if he ate it all) but everybody else loved it.

This quiche doesn't have a crust. I love quiche with crust (it's super yummy!) but omitting the crust saves on calories and time while still being delicious! The recipe is very flexible. You can add whatever vegetable/meat combination strikes your fancy.

quick quiche
4 oz light cream cheese, softened
8 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cooked bacon
1 cup frozen broccoli, chopped (thawed and squeeze out excess moisture)*
10 oz frozen spinach, chopped (thawed and squeeze out excess moisture)*
5 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 cups cheese of your choice (I like cheddar or swiss)

blend cream cheese, eggs and milk together well (there will still be some chunks of cream cheese) stir in remaining ingredients. pout into two greased quiche or pie pans. bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.

*I usually use fresh broccoli and spinach. precook, squeeze out moisture and chop.

I used this recipe from Real Simple for the roasted potatoes. I have been making it since the recipe first appeared in Real Simple in 2006. It's one of my favorites. The asparagus was simply tossed with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and roasted in the oven for 20 minutes.

How funny, I just gave someone my quiche recipe tonight. We also eat ours crustless with potatoes. I can't wait to try the potatoes recipe.

I think this is the same quiche recipe I use! But I haven't made it in ages. I think I'll add it to my menu for next week. I am loving this cooler weather - hope it sticks around for apple picking next weekend!

I've never had quiche but I may have to give a try. And I'm totally trying the potatoes.

YUMMERS. That looks tasty. I've never done a quiche for dinner, I need to. I think I'll start with this, but omit the mushrooms. Thanks for sharing.

AND PLEASE..send some of that gray drizzly weather over to Dallas!!

YUM! I love quiche but always tend to make it the same way so I don't have to read any recipes. I should try this variation. Thanks! Also, those potatoes look yummy! My belly is grumbling now. :)
