Quiche for breakfast

When I think of quiche, I think of a fancy cafe with expensive breakfast options. I can never afford the quiche, so I normally go with a cheaper, less elaborate alternative like a bagel. But when Jill and I embarked on a quiche adventure, we realized that this cafe delicacy was really a simple dish that is simple to make and lasts for several meals.

Here is our quiche recipe made easy. And from now on, don't be fooled by the hoity-toity cafe quiche; just make your own!

Homemade Quiche
For the crust:
2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of butter, cut up

1. Combine all of these ingredients and press into the base of a 9 inch by 13 inch baking dish and bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
For the filling:
4 eggs
1 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Spinach (from the farmer's market!)
Tomatoes (from our garden!)
Broccoli (from our garden!)
Corn (from my grandpa's garden!)
Onion greens (from our garden!)
Bell Pepper (from our garden!)
Pepper Jack cheese (organic and local!)

1. Blend together the eggs, milk, flour, salt and pepper and set aside.

2. Put any combination of vegetables and cheese in the baked crust. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables. Bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees or until the egg is thoroughly cooked.
Bon Appetite and happy eating!
