French Quiche


I feel like I've been away forever. With more snow storms, kids off school, starting my business, and a death in the family (my brother in law's wife) all occuring at the same time last week, I ended up getting sick over the weekend. No surprise there. But I'm feeling better and better everyday, and I finally got time to cook and blog! I found a wonderful and easy recipe for French Quiche this week. It comes from the kitchens of a French language camp that I, unfortunately, did not get to attend! But since I love anything French, I tried this the moment I got a chance. So good and so authentic! I'll give the basic recipe but you can change any ingredients to whatever you like.

French Quiche

Layer in order:
Leeks
Spinach
Mushrooms
Broccoli
Chedder

For the Liquid:
4 to 5 eggs, beaten (I used Eggs Beaters 1 1/4 cup)
2/3 cup of cream
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
large pinch cloves
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. rosemary
salt

Line a glass baking pan with a pie crust (I used a store bought one). Layer the veggies then mix and add liquid ingredients. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 to an hour (depends on your oven). When the quiche puffs up, it's done!

I'm sorry about your difficult week, Mary Ann, but so glad to see you back---in the blogosphere AND the kitchen. That quiche makes my mouth water. Let's see---high school French class was a looong time ago, but I'll try:
La quiche est très magnifique!

That was probably completely wrong, but I had to try. :-)
