raindrops and quiche.......

I've been a terrible blogger lately......sorry to the few of you who follow. I've been busy gathering materials and having earth moved to make a potager. I'm not having a lot of luck with the's been too rainy to mix dirt and compost to fill my new "raised" beds. After getting a good soaking on the way home from work today I decided a broccoli quiche would slide down pretty easy. I used farm range eggs from a friend...with yolks so rich they're orange.... I'll have to was pretty tasty....I like a little dab of homemade ranch dressing on top...sounds strange...I know...but.....YUM....

Now....for a good cup of Joe while I read my a new gardening magazine and listen to the rain....

hi peggy...thanks for visiting. i used Jenna Woginrich's quiche recipe from her book Made from Scratch (about living a handmade I used the full cup of cheese and heavy whipping cream instead of milk:

Makes one quiche

Olive oil
1/3 cup diced onion
1 broccoli crown, chopped into 1” pieces
3 large eggs
1 cup milk
Salt & pepper to taste
1 piecrust - prebaked
½ to 1 cup grated cheddar and Monterey jack cheese
If adding bacon or sausage precook meat

Preheat oven to 350F. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Saute onions until they are browned and fragrant, then put them aside in a small bowl. Pour about ½ cup of water into the skillet and steam the broccoli over medium high heat. When tender set broccoli aside in small bowl.

Beat eggs together with the cup of milk. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Toss the onions and broccoli into the piecrust and pour egg mixture over them. Grate cheese over the top. Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes. Poke the tip of a knife into the center of the pie to check for doneness.
