Simple Faire is Best

Time has been tight lately with many responsibilites and when that happens and tummies are grumbling for something my first fleshly inclination is to say, alright the lot you...off to bed!
But then I take a deep breath and start making breakfast for dinner.

Take your pick and please the family with a low cost meal for dinner...
~Fried Potatoes and Eggs
~French Toast
~Biscuts and Gravy
~Pancakes and berries
~An Omlet

I just recently learned how to make Quiche! I don't know I guess it was the pie crust thing that I am not particularly good at, and overcame the fright of buying it all rolled up and already done. It's still quite economical purchased on sale. But if you are braver than I...make your own crust.
Quiche...
Just a fancy name and look for some eggs, and a few other ingredients, and very easy to make.
It is also a great way to have "Leftovers for Breakfast".
You really can't make this wrong...only experiment with leftovers and find the way you like it.

Simple Quiche
One of your favorite pie crusts in a shallow pie plate
(Can be homemade or store bought)
Beat six eggs
Add 1 cup cream OR milk OR evaporated milk
Add one cup shredded Ceddar Cheese
(Or just about any cheese you have)
Add a little leftover Hamburger, OR sausage OR Cooked Crumbled Bacon
(Or for the veggie lover, toss in a little broccoli)
Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour
Elegant Quiche
One of your favorite pie crusts in a shallow pie plate
(Can be homemade or store bought)
Beat six Eggs
Add 1 cup cream OR milk
1 Tsp Salt
Pour mixture into uncooked pie crust
Top with Spinach leaves
and Sliced Tomatoes
Top with crumbled Feta cheese
Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour
Serve warm topped with sour cream and or salsa, and or a side salad,
Or grab a cold piece on the run in the morning rather than a doughnut.
Simple Faire Quiche
Omit all the added extras and make a plain Quiche
served hot with Sour Cream and Jam OR Berries
I would have posted a picture of the Quiche, but it didn't last long enough, Enjoy!
