Today’s Blogtober Challenge almost stumped me. I suppose I could discuss the fine art of making green bean casserole. But, French’s Onion stole my thunder by printing the recipe on the back of their cans.
OK, I confess. I am not much of a cook. It’s not that I hate cooking or am particularly bad at it. It’s just that other than passing phases, I haven’t had much interest in learning to cook.
More often than not, we are a sandwich, salad, fruit, and veggie kind of family. We mix things up with nuts, seeds, and grains. We also grill out quite a bit.
Now that you are aware of my cooking ability (or rather, lack of), you will understand the ease of the upcoming recipe.
Lately, I have been all about soft foods as an attempt to get Charlie to eat solids. Some of her favorites are bananas, macaroni, rice, beans, hummus, avocados, mashed potatoes, tomatoes, grapes, kiwi, and toast.
Every once in a while I will cook up a quiche which she loves.
Before you are wowed, you should know that I use a recipe that is quick and easy. I can manage it with my limited cooking skills, small selection of available cooking utensils, and with Charlie clinging to one leg.
With out further delay, here is my response to the DC Ladies Day 5 Blogtober Challenge:
Quick and Easy Quiche
- Frozen 9 inch pie shell
- 3/4 Cup of Milk
- 5 Large Eggs
- Add about two cups (total) of anything you want to cook up in the quiche such as chopped vegetables, precooked bacon, deli meats, cheese, precooked meats, and herbs.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a bowl: beat eggs, beat in milk, and then mix in other selected ingredients.
- Pour contents of bowl into the frozen pie crust.
- Bake quiche on a cookie sheet on the middle oven rack for 45-50 minutes. The top should be brown and a knife inserted into the middle should come out clean.
- Once the eggs are cooked through out, remove from oven, cool to a safe temperature to consume, and enjoy.
