i finally made the quiche that i meant to make last week.
it took me a few days to talk myself into making pie but
like always, it's totally worth it.
i used this pie crust recipe, but i'm sure
you could buy pie dough and go from there.
i combined two different recipes i found and
kind of did my own version:
i cut up a small apple, 1/4 of an onion and 1 cup of ham.
i sautéed the onion in butter and added the apple and ham.
i also sprinkled in some fennel.
(i don't think i've ever used fennel, but the recipe
called for it, so i just added a bit. i was nervous.)
in another bowel, i cracked four eggs and a cup of half and half.
the recipe called for milk, but i thought half and half would
be better and i already had it in the fridge.
i also added some salt and pepper.
i dumped the ham/apple mixture into my uncooked pie dough and
added 3/4 cup shredded cheese on top.
i poured in my egg mixture and sprinkled another 1/4 cup of cheese.
baked it at 400 for 45 minutes.
both kids ate it - whoop whoop!
but ronnie said he prefers breakfast casserole - whatevs.
at least it was something different to try AND all our ham is gone now.
ps- can i just say that trying to do this while two kids were running around was super hard and a little frustrating. i mean, both girls were crying at one point and i'm all like - please, can i just make dinner?! and ronnie wonders why i don't cook more...
