When I came home this past Tuesday during my lunch break, my whole family greeted with warmth but said: ” Cecile, can you please take us to the store, there is nothing to eat…” “Nothing to eat???, what do you mean, there is nothing to eat.”: I replied, and as I answered I went to see what i could find in my fridge to fix lunch.
I found a ton a things: cucumber, tomatoes, ham, cheese, and plenty more. So much so, in fact, that for lunch, we had cucumber salad, tomato caprese, quiche, lamb, grilled sausages and pasta.
Quiche is one of those wonderful things that you can fix quickly and use whatever you have in your fridge so long as you have cheese.
Ingredients: 1 pie crust ( pre-made), 5 eggs, 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream or milk ( if you use 2% milk, or non fat, you will need to add another egg because of the water content), 1 cup of shredded parmesan, 1 cup of sharp cheddar, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper.
Place the pie crust in the pie mold, and prick the bottom with the fork. Cut the ham in small strips and disperse them all over the pie, do the same with both cheese.
In a bowl, crack all 5 eggs, add 1 1/2 cream ( or other milk product you are using), the salt, the pepper and mix well. Pour the mixture over the ham and cheese. Place in the oven and cook at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until the center of the quiche is no longer wobbly.
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
