Quiche Me; The Perfect New Year’s Appetizer

image_pdfimage_print

Holidays give me the feels. I get all emotional and reminiscent of years past. Especially with my main squeeze. Thus, the sappy name for this recipe- Quiche Me!

I don’t think I’ve shared this yet, but I’m one of the lucky ones. One of the few girls who didn’t have to suffer multitudes of heartbreak before finding my guy. I had one boyfriend, and he became my forever and always. To be honest, I met Thad when I was young enough to think guys were only on the earth to tease and make fart jokes. I wasn’t wrong about those things, there’s just more to it now. 😉

My husband and I met way back when I still thought sports bras were evil and he had braces and a  truck with a huge Spider-Man decal on it. So many things have changed in the last 15 years, but he and I have been together through it all. Thankfully I’ve made amends with sports bras (they are so much cuter now) and Thad got his braces off. The truck is still here, but his little brother owns it now.

New Years is a time to celebrate the exciting unknown ahead and reflect on the joys of what’s been. I’m fortunate enough to have memories with the same guy in both directions. Our first years together New Years was more about hanging with friends and lighting fireworks ( legal, of course). Then came the romantic years. It didn’t matter what party we were at, it was all about that kiss at midnight.

These recent years have been a challenge just to stay up that late and hope the kids sleep in the next day! 😂 Life has changed, new joys have come and go. One thing I can count on is that my guy and I will be there for each other. We help each other chase dreams and we raise the most awesome kids you ever did meet. Read my funny mom posts about them here.

I know this is way more sentimental than you usually find my posts, but like I said earlier, the holidays give me the feels. Whatcha gunna do?

Over Christmas break I made two versatile quiches that will be perfect for your party this weekend. No matter what kind of party, or what kind of “quiche” you’re hoping for at midnight, these recipes are here for you.

Quiche Me; The Perfect New Year’s Appetizer

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 whole quiche, 8 slices

Serving Size: 1 slice

This is a great dish to make a day ahead. If you're the one hosting a party, save yourself a headache and bake this the day before your party, then heat it up at 350° for 12 minutes before serving. Voila!

Ingredients

    Creamy Asparagus & Ham Crust-less Quiche
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup diced asparagus
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup sharp white cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 T fresh parsley
    Paleo Italian Sausage Spinach Quiche
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup spinach, whole or torn
  • 1 cup cooked Italian sausage
  • 2 cloved garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9 inch pie plate with olive oil. If making both quiches, spray 2 pie dishes.
  2. In a medium bowl mix your crust ingredients. I love recipes that allow you to dump and mix-so that's exactly what this is!
  3. Using a spatula, scoop the dough into the pie dish. Flatten with the back of your spatula. You want the get the crust flat on the bottom of the dish and evenly on the sides of the pie dish.
  4. Bake for 7-12 minutes. Mine took 10 minutes.
  5. While that's baking, grab a large bowl to start getting the filling ready.
  6. First add in the eggs. Whisk them until that are bubbly on top.
  7. Now add in the veggies and meat. Stir in the seasonings. If using cheese, add that in too.
  8. Pour in the almond milk and stir about 5 rotations. You don't want to over mix the eggs.
  9. By now that crust should be done and out of the oven.
  10. Increase the oven heat to 400°.
  11. Pour the quiche filling on top of the crust.
  12. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Mine took 35 minutes.
  13. Allow to cool for at least 10 minuets before serving.
