Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Crustless Quiche





So it was Easter morning and I was up early to make a warm breakfast for my husband and me before heading out to Easter Service at church. As I thought about all the things I could make, quiche kept coming to mind. This quiche recipe is quick and easy. For an added bonus, there are TONS of veggies loaded into this healthy, family breakfast. By the way, leftovers are great!




Ingredients
6 Eggs
1/4 Cup Skim Milk
1 Tablespoon Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Button Mushrooms
1/4 Cup Fineld Chopped Baby Spinach
1 Tablespoon Finely Minced Onion
4 Strips Crisp-Cooked Bacon, Chopped
1/2 Cup Monterey/Colby Jack Blend Shredded Cheese
1/2 Tablespoon Butter

Preheat Oven Temperature: 350 degrees
1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the milk and eggs until slightly foamy. Slowly add the flour while whisking to avoid lumps.
2. Add the salt, pepper, mushrooms, spinach, onions, bacon and cheese. Stir thoroughly to combine.
3. Place a clear, glass 9-inch pie pan on a large cookie sheet. Completely coat the inside of the pie pan with butter. Pour the quiche mixture into the pie pan, making sure to keep it moving to avoid lumping up of the filling in one location.
4. Carefully place the cookie sheet with the pie pan into the oven.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until completely set in the middle.
6. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Lentil Burgers

Last night I cooked a large pot of lentils as part of our family dinner, which means that today, I was left wondering what I could do with all these lentils for the coming week. My typical use for lentils is in chili or soups, however, that is not something that I really wanted on this bright, spring day. Instead, I thought about how I could morph the leftovers into something new that I could use throughout the week, and that is when I thought of revamping my normal veggie burger recipe. Now, as promised, since this is the Quarantine Cooking Series, please feel free to use whatever beans or greens you have in your house. While I love the way this recipe turned out, it is more important that you use what you have and the technique to create a delicious meal for you and your family. Additionally, I like my veggie burgers on the spicy side. However, this is another place when personal modifications should be made to your palate preferences. 3 Tablespoons canola oil, divided

Black-eyed Pea Croquettes

So it is well known that I make  Black Bean Burgers  all the time. I love the versatility of the recipe and the ability to make a week of lunches in about 15 minutes. Today, I found myself with a bowl of leftover black-eyed peas in the fridge and the desire for something new. This recipe is also great because I always have canned black-eyed peas in the pantry since they are one of my husband's favorite vegetables, which means I can make this recipe anytime. So whether you use leftover homemade, like I did, or canned, this recipe is great. Additionally, these are not coated and fried like traditional croquettes, which makes them an even better option. Enjoy these as a side dish, on a sandwich, or with a side salad for a delicious, healthy, and easy meal. These do not hold or reheat well, so enjoy them while they're hot. 2 Cups Black-eyed Peas, drained and rinsed 3 Scallions, whites and greens thinly sliced 1 Clove Garlic 1 Egg, lightly beaten 3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs,

The Quarantine Cooking Series

Hello everyone! It has been quite a while. Things have been pretty busy around my house with the two kids, but since the quarantine kicked in, we've all been forced to slow down and adapt to a lot of things. I have to admit, my family is enjoying the more relaxed pace and increased time with our nuclear family, but that doesn't mean that we don't miss many of the aspects of our normal life. One of the biggest things I have had to get used to is the "mystery bags" that have become my weekly grocery order. While I put in my preferences and desired ingredients, that doesn't mean that I get what I ask for right now. (However, I am grateful for every single item I receive and I appreciate the grocery store workers more than you could ever imagine since entering a store is not an option for my family.) Like many, my grocery orders remind me of the mystery basket from "Chopped," forcing me to get even more creative and resourceful. We are meticulously
