So I’m lazy sometimes when I cook. I will use a frozen pie crust without a second thought, and that is precisely what I did when I made my first quiche the other day.
This quiche is full of delicious ingredients: potatoes, kale, onions, chicken sausage, turkey bacon, and mozzarella cheese. I cannot overstate the amazingness that is kale. It keeps pretty well, it’s delicious, it’s really good for you and you can improve nearly anything by adding kale. Scrambled eggs, smoothies, sautéed by itself, and in quiche, kale can go anywhere!
Here is my recipe for quiche. Seriously, it’s the best thing ever because you have breakfast made for like an entire week (depending on how big you cut your slices).
THE STUFF THAT YOU NEED:
- 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened, unflavored almond milk because that was all I had–I don’t drink milk–and it was just fine)
- 6-8 eggs (the number of eggs you use will be determined by how “eggy” you like your quiche. If you want more, then do eight, and if less, do six)
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 6 strips of turkey bacon, cut into thin slices
- 1 chicken sausage link, cut into small cubes
- 1 cup of kale, shredded
- 1/2 cup white onion, diced
- 1/2 cup potatoes, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 pie crust, frozen or fresh (cough *overachiever* cough)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Take your frozen pie crust out to thaw
- In a large bowl, beat together milk, eggs, cheese, onion, salt, pepper, and paprika. ALL OF THEM. Batter will be obviously be lumpy. Don’t worry about that. Stir in kale, potatoes, turkey bacon and chicken sausage. Pour into pie pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for around 50 minutes, until eggs are set and top is golden brown. Make sure that the middle part is not runny still when you take it out (poke a fork or knife in it).
WARNING: THIS IS POSSIBLY THE MOST BASIC THING TO EVER EXIST.
The quiche will keep for about a week. I think next time, I’m going to add tomatoes, so we’ll see how that tastes. If you make quiche (which is LITERALLY the easiest thing ever), tell me! Share your photos and experiences; I’d love to feature some guest contributions on the blog.
