What do you eat for breakfast? Like a true French person, I love to eat bread with butter and jelly and of course I love my croissants. Because croissants, or shall I say, “good croissants” are hard to find in our area and I am cautious of their effect on my waistline, I only eat croissants on the week-ends if I find some good ones. Generally my breakfast will be scrambled white eggs and a croissant on week-ends. During the week, it really depends. Sometimes it is whole wheat bread with butter and jelly, sometimes it is cereals, and sometimes it is fruit. This week for whatever reason, nothing really stroke me fancy for breakfast. But I know the importance of eating breakfast, I tried to fix some scrambled eggs on Monday morning. Result: I was happy with my breakfast but ran late that morning…It is too much trouble to prepare the eggs, eat and clean…
So i started to think that quiche would be great and that is what i fixed last night.
I used my large round mold tray and made 6 individuals quiches. You may heat them up or eat them cold. Which i did this morning.
6 eggs, 2 1/2 cup of milk ( I used lactose fat free milk), 3 roma tomatoes, 10 oz of shredded gorgonzola cheese, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of freshly ground pepper.
Slice the roma tomatoes very thinly, sprinkle some salt over them and lay them on some paper towels. Set them aside for a few minutes. In a large bowl, add all the other ingredients except the gorgonzola and mix well.
Take the large round mold and layer the tomatoes in a flower pattern. I placed 5 slices so it looked like a 5 petal flower. Sprinkle the gorgonzola on top, making sure to divide the cheese evenly. Take the egg mixture and empty it evenly in all 6 “circles. Place the tray in the warm oven at 375 and cook for 20 minutes or until the top is nice and golden, and the middle of the quiche is firm, and not liquid.
Eat the quiche as it comes out of the oven for dinner with a salad, or eat it cold like me for breakfast. It was fabulous! and I was happy and satisfied this morning.
NB: You could also add a pie crust if you wished. Same cooking time!!!
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
