Tasty time saver

Up until recently I thought quiches were among the more difficult things to make as far as brunch dishes go. Flaky crust, fluffy center, yummy ingredients... sound hard, right? As it turns out, I was so very wrong. At my friend Rebecca's baby shower several weeks ago, she clued me into the easiness of quiche making and since then I have never looked back.

These days I throw a quiche together on Monday morning, and then enjoy a slice each day for breakfast with my cup of coffee. 50 seconds in the microwave and I have a delicious meal that fills me up until lunch.

The trick is to use store bought pie crust. Put whatever stuff you like on top of the crust, dump in 5 eggs combined with 1/3 cup of milk, bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Done.

This one had about 1/2 cup of spinach (it came from the freezer, and measured about that much after I thawed it and drained all the water), 1 tsp or so of minced garlic, around 4 oz of crumbled feta cheese, salt & pepper. Oh, and the egg/milk mixture of course. That's it! Spanakopita on a crust. Divine. Now go make one!

I'll definately be trying that out soon. I love spinach and so do my boys!

Aren't quiches the best! They freeze well too!

Sara, I was blessed to taste this one right out of the oven, and it is as good as it looks! It was wonderful to spend time with you and the girls on Monday.

Sadly, I haven't made another one since then. Oh well--tomorrow is a new week, right?

Katharine, it was so good to have you here. I'm sad that it can't be more often but it just makes me cherish the time we do have even more. Only a few more weeks until more fun--I can't wait!
