This evening I attempted to make Quiche. I don’t know what it’s official name is but I put broccoli and ham in it. I looked up some recipes online but they seemed too difficult. I knew my mother-in-law’s quiche was good so I tried calling her…no answer. Great…what am I to do? Guess what? She showed up at my house.
Mother-in-law was in a hurry and didn’t really want to take the time to write down her recipe. She did however want to give me all the needless details about how she blanches her broccoli instead of steaming it all the way and so on. I just needed the basics and had her write them down.
Notice this doesn’t look like a normal recipe, it is a list of ingredients. I am supposed to figure out the rest. Normally I would be able to follow that without it being in true recipe format…today I was in a hurry. I put the broccoli and ham into the pie crust. I knew the eggs went in last so I added the cheese. I now have a pie crust filled with ham, broccoli and cheese. Looking good. I go to beat the eggs so I can pour them on top. Wait…didn’t mother-in-law say something about mixing flour with the cheese? Hmm…let me look at the recipe…oh yes, there’s the flour. No problem…I’ll just put it on top of the cheese and mix it all together. Okay…back to the eggs.
The eggs are poured in and I am now able to put the uncooked quiche in the oven…after I add the milk. Great I forgot to add the milk to the eggs before I poured them into the crust. Have you ever tried mixing milk into a full uncooked quiche? It wasn’t easy but I did get it done. Finally I can put the quiche into the oven. Some time later I realized I forgot to salt/pepper it. Oh well I tried. Hopefully it will taste good.
My first attempt at quiche ended up being a success. Everyone enjoyed it…well hub and I enjoyed it. Kiddos all of a sudden decided they hate quiche and threw a fit eating it. They finally gave in and ate all of it. Go figure!
Was it worth making it? Will I ever make quiche again? Of course I will! Next I want to try Best Friend’s mom’s recipe.
