I hosted a ladies’ luncheon recently, and this was one of the dishes I made. When I was still teaching private piano lessons, one of my students’ moms would make quiche and share them with me while I was there. It seemed like it quiche was their saturday lunch, and it always had potatoes, broccoli and some sort of cured meat. It may not be the usual quiche, but it tastes really good, and I’ve since then ‘copied’ these ingredients. Here goes!
- 1 small head brocolli (or half a usual head), cut into tiny parts
- 1 large potato, peeled and sliced
- 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- 5 eggs, beaten
- 1 smoked sausage, sliced (I used chicken)
- 6-9 baby portabello mushrooms, sliced
- salt and pepper for seasoning
- canola oil spray
- 1/3 cup shredded cheese (I used a blend of cheddar and mozzarella)
- 1/2 cup milk
Spray the bottom of a 9 inch round baking pan, then layer the sliced potatoes over the bottom of the pan.
Add the broccoli on top of the potatoes, and the feta cheese on top of the broccoli.
Layer the mushrooms on top of the broccoli, followed by the sliced sausage on top of the mushrooms.
Spread the shredded cheese on top of everything.
Add some salt, pepper and milk to the eggs, then pour the eggs into the pan.
Bake the quiche in an oven at 350F for 40 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
Serve and enjoy!
