Yummy Quiche

On the 4th, I really wanted to make a quiche for breakfast.  Buttttt.. we did not have milk and I didn’t want to go to the store.  Slight problem. So I was determined to make one the other weekend.  New problem, did not have pie crust nor desire to make pie crust.  Enter more googling.  I started googling quiche red potatoes because I had some from the farmers market and wondered if they would make a good ingredient.  And bada bing bada boom.  Enter red potatoes as the crust!!! So while glancing through many recipes at and finding ingredients that I had on hand that I could throw in I found this blog,  Eat Drink Pretty is amazing! And so is therecipe I followed to make this delicious quiche!

4 red potatoes, thinly sliced
½ a yellow pepper, chopped
½ a sweet onion, chopped
½ a medium tomato chopped
½ cup feta/shredded cheddar cheese
4 eggs
½ cup milk
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder

 Preheat oven to 350. Grease pan.  Wash and cut the red potatoes in to very thin slices.  Arrange them around the pie pan.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, parsley and garlic powder.  (Careful on the amount of olive oil. I think I used too much on mine but it stilled turned out yummy).  Cook the potatoes in the oven for 15 minutes.  Take out and let cool for about 5 minutes.

 Chop up the vegetables and in a bowl mix the eggs and milk and more salt and pepper if you want.  Put the veggies on top of the potatoes and sprinkle with the cheese.  Then pour the egg/milk mixture on top.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and add more cheese on top (if you want, and of course I want!) Then continue baking it until its been in there about 30-35 minutes and the egg is set.

What is your favorite breakfast to make?
