Yummie Quiche!

On Friday, I was so blessed to have Chris at home! 

First, I woke up with terrible spasm in my neck and shoulders so I could barely turn my head!  So I was able to get some heat on it right away while my lovely husband made some breakfast. :-)

We would have never been able to run all the errands we ran on Friday, either, since I couldn't drive in my condition. 

Then, I was able to lie down all afternoon with heat on my neck and even sleep!

Finally, Chris woke me up and already had dinner planned out! He wanted to have quiche.  I had made quiche a week or two before and it turned out delicious!  We started making this with a couple of ingredients in mind, and the more we got out, the more we decided to throw in! 

I am sooooo thankful that I had Chris around on Friday for so many reasons!  :-)

Pie Crust:
1 1/4 cup fresh ground whole wheat flour
1/2 cup shortening or butter
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup water

Mix the flour and the salt.  Cut in the butter or shortening.  Add water until it comes to a nice dough.  Chill for at least 30 minutes. Roll out.

Quiche with leftovers!
4 eggs
1 cup milk (or cream, if you want it really rich!!)
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 oz. mushrooms
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 red pepper
leftover BBQ chicken
1/2 cup leftover potatoes (small cubes-- hashbrown style)
a big handful of spinach, chopped
one cup of shredded cheese

Beat eggs and milk and salt and pepper. Saute mushrooms, onions, garlic, and pepper.  Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together.  Pour into prepared pie crust.  Bake at 350* for 30-45 minutes or until the middle is set.

I really love quiche, and one thing that has always held me back from making it was the misconception that it used up so many eggs and you HAD to have cream.  It only takes FOUR eggs-- half the amount we go through on a Saturday morning!  And, you definitely don't need cream-- We even substituted water for almost half the milk and it still turned out fine. 

Do you love quiche?  Would you make it for dinner?
