Quiche Makes Its Own Crust
How about a quick and easy meal for any time of the day, that makes leftovers usable for breakfast, lunch or snack, is healthy and tastes good!
That could describe this cheesy spinach quiche, which is fast and fun to make because it makes its own crust.
This is a country cook receipe which can be easily adjusted to make larger or smaller servings as desired - just change the amounts of spinach, peppers onion; add in chopped or leftover meats, more cheese, croutons or flavored dressing mix. (If adding more, be sure to add adequate egg and or milk also. I have used dressing mix alone without the flour, at times.
First, heat your oven to desired temperature, higher for fast cooking(and easier burning) or lower temp if you're not pressed for time, about 325 degrees. Use olive oil or spray to coat glass baking dish to have ready to receive the quiche. Beat 5 or 6 natural eggs in a large bowl with hand whisk til well mixed, but not frothy. Add a good half cup of milk, sea salt to taste, pepper, sprinkle of Mrs. Dash's original or table seasoning. Mix in about 1/3 cup of either cornmeal or flour. Add in coarsely chopped bell pepper to your liking along with chopped onion(dried or fresh minced).
May also add some finely grated carrots, parsley, chives, and garlic if desired. If using Spam or leftover meat, add it in now. Then add in one regular size can of drained spinach, one 8 oz package of grated cheese, and stir in well. Pour into baking dish and cover lightly with foil to prevent overbrowning or drying. Bake about 20 minutes, and remove foil and return to oven to bake until center is slightly puffed. Test center with toothpick to ascertain doneness according to temperature and dish size used. When done may be served with ketchup or chopped tomatoes, gravy, salsa, or just plain. It may be 'fake quiche' but it is a yummy and filling meal.
