Ok. So for my first recipe post, it’s one of those things that seem so hard to make, yet in reality it is so simple. Can you guess what it is? (Hint: look at the title of the post…LOL!)
You guessed it! QUICHE!
I still remember as a kid I thought quiche was wierd richy-adult food. I mean, really? A egg pie with veggies in it? YUCK!
BUT…now. It’s alright.
I frankensteined the recipe from two I was able to find that looked decent. One, Carrot and Zuchinni Quiche recipe, from Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo and one off the back of the bacon package I used (classy, I know).
I admit-I am a recipe deviant! I try to get the ingredients called for in the recipe or something else to substitute if I do not like the recommended ingredients. Each of the quiche I have made with this recipe has been different. Different veggies, different cheese, etc. It’s just what I had at the time, yet keeping the fundementals the same.
THE ANYTHING GOES QUICHE!
(Makes about 4-6 servings…depends on the amount of veggie and the dish used)
1 Pack of cooked bacon
2 Cups of shredded carrots (I always use all or most of a bag of organic baby carrots)
1 At least one other cup of veggies* (see below)
Butter/Cooking Spray (for greasing dish)
Optional/Items to change:
Other Veggies like Spinach, Broccoli and Onions (add/substitute/whatever)… up to three more cups total AT MOST (if you add 2-3 more cups of veggies, you will need the larger casserole dish)
Other Meats (like ham or turkey)
Adding 1-3 cups of cheese (always a must for me, but to each their own)
Large mixing bowl
Either 9×13 Greased dish or Large Greased Casserole dish
Knife and Cutting board
Grater (if shredding veggies)
1- Preheat the over to 400 degrees
2- Make the bacon! (keep the bacon fat if you want to use it in another receipe like Cornbread-not paleo I know, but I am posting an awesome receipe later for it!)
3- In a large bowl with a fork, mix the eggs together
4- Cut/Shred/Dice all the veggies into bite-size peices (cut the broccoli, shred the carrots-always, and dice the onion)
5- Cut up the bacon into small pieces.
6- Combine everything into the large bowl
7- Pour mixture into large casserole dish
8- Bake for 35-45 min, until edges are just turning brown and a tooth pick comes out cleanly
9- Let sit about 10-15 min to finish setting up
10- Serve! Woot!
