Anyway, I harvested all of those tomatoes and so I went looking for something to do with them. A quiche sounded tasty, especially since I had a pie crust in the freezer that was waiting for something. I would have put more tomato slices on this but instead I ate them. Oops. Yum.
By the way, nothing in any of my recipes is exact and usually it's just foodstuffs I happen to have in the fridge. If you only have a couple of crumbles of goat cheese or you are in the middle of nowhere with no goat source and only have cheddar, just use that. Assume that all measurements in my recipes come with an -ish at the end, for instance, one cup-ish of milk. 4 small sausage-ish patties. Don't be so literal. Live a little.
Here's the recipe for Sausage Tomato Quiche.
One pie crust
2 eggs plus one egg yolk
1 cup of half and half or whipping cream
4 small sausage patties
1/2 cup goat cheese
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese or both. Whatever.
A sprinkling of parmesan cheese if you've got it
1/2 tsp salt or so
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried oregano
fresh tomatoes sliced thin
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Saute crumbled sausage patties until brown.
- Beat eggs, cream and spices together with a fork. Or a whisk. Just beat them.
- Cover a cookie sheet in tinfoil. Put the pie plate (with crust in it obv.) on the cookie sheet.
- Cover the bottom of the pie crust in the crumbled sausage.
- Crumble goat cheese on top of the sausage.
- Put cheddar on top of goat cheese.
- Pour egg mixture on top of cheese and sausage
- Top the whole thing with tomato slices. If I hadn't eaten them all, I would have put them overlapping in a circle but I have an impulse control problem. It is mine to bear....
- Sprinkle a tiny bit of sea salt on top of the tomatoes. If you have high blood pressure skip this part.
- Place cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes then lower the temperature to 300 degrees and bake for another 40 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and you have a delicious quiche that should be eaten. If you're making it for dinner, definitely take some for breakfast the next morning. It's even better the next day. I promise. Share only with people you love. Screw the rest of the bastards.
