Italian Breakfast Quiche

So I woke up in the morning, starving, and hadn’t gone to the grocery store in almost a week. There wasn’t much to put together in the fridge but I pulled it off! I’m definitely going to make this quiche again but I would add a bit more parmesan cheese (because I ran out) and add some mozzarella (which of course I didn’t have at all). All in all, this is a keeper!

Full disclosure: I did not make the crust, it was store bought and left over from something else I made earlier in the week. There are some good quality pre-made crusts out there so if you don’t have the time, like a lot of people I know, save yourself some hassle and just buy one.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pie crust
  • 14 eggs, divided
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups baby kale
  • Small handful parsley, chopped
  • Small handful basil, sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Spray olive oil
  • S & P
  • What to do:
    1. Preheat the oven to 375, prep you vegetables and spray your pie dish on he bottom and sides.
      In a sauté pan on medium heat, spray the pan and add the red pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
      Next add the parsley and basil, then the kale and S & P. Cook another 2 minutes or until the kale is wilted. Set aside.
      Put the pie crust in your baking pan and layer the bottom with cheese.
      Whisk 8 eggs with S & P and garlic powder. Fold in the sautéed veggie mixture.
      Add the eggs to the dish.
      Gently crack the remaining eggs into the dish scattered throughout it.
      Add a little more salt to the top and place it in the oven to bake.
      I didn’t pay attention to how log this baked but it was at least 20 minutes. Make sure the middle of the dish is cooked and not loose. Also, the tips of the crust will be golden brown.
      Enjoy!

    Prosciutto, Avocado, Spinach, & Heirloom Tomato Egg Scramble | Start The Day Off Right

    Did you ever wake up on the weekend or your day off and think, “I’m going to make a killer breakfast”? However, you don’t have a clue what that killer breakfast will be or what you can throw together that’s in your fridge to make it “killer”. Well…here it is. 

    All you need is a somewhat salty meat (ham, bacon or in my case a slice of prosciutto that I had left over), a variety of veggies, eggs and a spicy sauce if you’re into that kinda thing. In my opinion, the spicy sauce is the killer part. It brings it all together. 

    Serves 2 people

    What you’ll need:

    • 4 eggs, whisked
    • 1 Tbls milk
    • 3/4 avocado, cubed
    • 1 slice prosciutto, finely chopped 
    • 5 grape size heirloom tomatoes, sliced in halve lengthwise 
    • 1 cup raw spinach, chopped 
    • 1/2 Tbls butter
    • Fresh ground black pepper 
    • Garlic powder
    • All season salt
    • 2 sprigs of parsley for garnish

    The spicy sauce:

    • 2 Tbls plain Greek yogurt
    • A few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, depending on how spicy you like it
    • Garlic powder
    • S&P

    I also served breakfast with a lightly toasted bagel, cherries & mini yellow plums that I got from a local farm. They were delicious!

    What to do:

    1. Prep your ingredients and put a large sautée pan on medium heat. 
    2. Sautée the prosciutto for 2 minutes, add the avocado and tomatoes and sautée for another 2 minutes. 
    3. In the meantime wisk the eggs, milk, garlic powder, all season salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
    4. Clear a space in the center of the pan and melt the butter, mix everything together and add the eggs. Top with the spinach, cover and turn the heat down. Make sure the eggs evenly dispurse in the pan. 
    5. Cook on low for 3-4 minutes and gently take large sections of the egg and flip them. It’ll break apart don’t worry it’s ok. Just try to flip as big of a piece as possible. I did it in 4’s. 
    6. Fold over one large piece on top of another for one serving. Do the same for the second serving. Top with the sauce, parsley for presentation and serve with you favorite sides. 

    Enjoy!!

      Start The Day Off Right | Breakfast Sandwich

      Farm fresh, organic eggs are simply the best! They’re even better if you mix them with the right stuff. These items are the makings of my favorite Sunday breakfast.

      • 2 eggs
      • 2 slices of Fresh Whole Grain Bread

      • 3-5 Dashes Hot Sauce
      • All-Season Salt
      • Black Pepper
      • Garlic Powder
      • 1Tbls Olive Oil
      1. Make the sauce. In a tiny dish, mix the yogurt, hot sauce, garlic powder, all-season salt, and pepper. You choose how much hot sauce to use. Deathwish is my absolute favorite and made from habanero peppers and cayenne, so, this is really spicy.  It should like like this…   
      2. Mash the avocado and spread it on one slice of bread. Spread the yogurt sauce on the other slice of bread and top with lettuce.         
      3. In a nonstick pan, coat olive oil and heat the pan on medium high heat. Crack the eggs into the pan. Cook on one side until the whites are almost cooked through.
