Quiche

Post by PATRICE IN IL on Fri May 30, 2014 12:30 pm

This can be served warm or cold, pair it with a salad for a nice meal.

Ingredients for two 9 inch Quiche:

(2) 9 inch pie shells (frozen, refrigerated ready crust or homemade)
3 large eggs
1 cup cream or half & half
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4-1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
assorted cooked meats & vegetables such as broccoli, asparagus, diced ham, crumbled sausage or bacon
4-8 oz. Shredded cheese such as cheddar

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350°F, place pie shells on a lined cookie sheet, dock(poke the shell with a fork) to avoid air pockets and blind bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.

Sprinkle the blind baked shells with the desired amount of cheese then top with the precooked vegetables and meats. In a large bowl (or batter bowl/measuring cup) combine the eggs, cream & milk, salt, mustard and nutmeg. Beat well to combine. Pour this mixture into the prepared pie shells and top with more shredded cheese, if desired. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Cool for 15-20 minutes and enjoy, promptly refrigerate any leftovers.

• I've used all whole milk in place of the cream and have had good results.

The extra quiche can be wrapped tightly and frozen to enjoy for another meal if desired. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

Pasta Salad

Post by PATRICE IN IL on Fri May 30, 2014 12:57 pm

Another quick meal is Pasta Salad.

Ingredients:
1 package each of tricolor and regular rotini pasta, or gluten free pasta

1 large bottle of our favorite Italian Salad Dressing (or homemade version)

Assorted peeled, seeded & chopped vegetables such as cucumber, red or sweet onion, bell pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, shredded carrots, olives etc.

Assorted diced precooked meats such as pepperoni, salami, ham, summer sausage etc.

Assorted diced or crumbled cheese such as mozzarella, cheddar, Colby jack etc.

Directions:
In a large stock pot of salted water, boil up a package of tricolor rotini and a package of regular rotini. While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl combine your desired vegetables, meats, cheeses and salad dressing. I add grated parmesan cheese as well. When pasta is tender drain it and rinse under cold water. Allow the pasta to drain well for a few minutes then pour it into the prepared dressing mixture. Stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend together.

This will make a nice meal or use as a side dish for your favorite grilled meats or sandwiches.

** I use thawed broccoli and cauliflower in place of raw due to digestive issues.

BLT Dip

Post by PATRICE IN IL on Fri May 30, 2014 1:10 pm

Another favorite here is BLT Dip

Ingredients:

Sour cream
Mayonnaise
Bacon (cooked and crumbled or ready made bacon bits)
Plum or Roma Tomatoes
Bread or Lettuce or Crackers

Directions:

You can use as much of the ingredients as you like. The base is simply equal parts of mayonnaise and sour cream, then add cooked crumbled bacon and seeded & chopped plum tomatoes. Mix well to combine and refrigerate until ready to eat. I serve it open face on toast but it would be delicious served in lettuce leaves or to top a salad.

Thanks for starting this thread!

One of our fast summer favorites is...

Fajitas 

I take either boneless chicken breast or venison strips or a small steak and slice it into strips.

Saute the meat in some olive oil.

Add.

Slivered onions
Slivered peppers
a few chunked tomatoes 

We like a bit of chili spice over all and then serve on warmed tortillas (mine are corn or Gluten Free rice ones)

It is fast and filling and can be made fancy with the addition of sour cream, black olives and slices of avocado when company shows up.

Those are yummy and easy FF.

I think I'm going to pull out some steak and marinate it for fajitas tonight. I've got everything I need to make them on hand already.
