How to Make a Breakfast Pie
Turn these eggs into a quiche
A Quick Way to Make a Quiche
I love quiche, but I sometimes do not want to go through the whole process of making the pie crust, rolling it out and placing it in a pie tin. A much faster way to make a quiche is to use a pre-made pie crust. Bu those can sell for more than $2 a piece! The solution is to use pre-made biscuits. One tube can make the crust for two quiches.The quiche makes a great vegetarian entree or add bacon to make what I call a breakfast pie.
1 tube of pre-made biscuits
1 bunch spinach
1 crown broccoli
6 pieces of bacon (optional)
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or gouda)
Wash and chop your veggies in a bowl to let the sediment fall to the bottom. Shake off the excess moisture and chop the veggies. Begin cooking the broccoli and when they deepened their green color add the spinach.
While those are working, open the tube of biscuits. Pull the biscuits into thin layers and pat them into two pie tins. No pie tin? Use a 9X9 glass casserole dish. The biscuits should form one continuous, thin layer on the bottom and sides of the tins.
When moisture has been extracted from the veggies, pile them in the pie tins. Cover them with the cheese. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a little milk as if to make scrambled eggs.
Pour the eggs over the veggies until the pie tins are filled almost to the top.
Place them in a 350 degree oven and cook for about 1 hour.
Serves 4-6 people.
