A Picnic with quiche
Dmitri loves quiche
~ Our Weekly Menu ~
Monday: Ravioli & Spinach soup served with garlic bread
Tuesday: Spaghetti with marinara sauce, and a spinach salad with homemade raspberry vinaigrette
Wednesday: Spinach & Gouda Quiche (perfect for a picnic)
Thursday: Breakfast for dinner : French Toast & fruit
This was a shorter menu week for us, because we spent some of the weekend in Atlanta for the baby shower for Neal & Deborah (my brother & sister-in-law). Photos tomorrow!
1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup frozen spinach
1 wedge or block of smoked gouda or gruyere cheese shredded or sliced
2 pie crusts (depending on how much time I have, I either make them homemade or use a frozen one)
salt & pepper to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Beat eggs & heavy whipping cream together. Add salt & pepper if desired. Pour a small amount of egg mixture into each pie crust, just enough to coat the bottom. Scatter the frozen spinach (make sure it's broken into small pieces) into the pie crusts evenly. Layer the cheese on top. Then, pour the remainder of the egg mixture into each pie crust, making sure that all of the filling is covered. Bake at 40 until golden and solid all the way through - approximately 40 minutes. Makes two quiche. (They are wonderful leftover or frozen!)
Other filling ideas:
Bacon & gouda
Potato, onion, and gruyere (potatoes & onion must be sautéed briefly beforehand.)
This is a staple around our house, and I often make 2 or 3 at a time so that we can eat the leftovers for lunch! I also made this recipe for the baby shower this weekend!
Caroline's Homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette
8 oz. frozen raspberries - thawed in refrigerator overnight
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
1/3 c. agave nectar
Blend drained raspberries until smooth in a blender or food chopper. Scoop into a bowl and add vinegar and nectar. Stir until blended and serve!
Simple and absolutely delicious! Honey might could be substituted for nectar, although I have not tried it!
