Yes, it's a quiche.


Another great way to get rid of all those vegetable that have been milling around in the crisper (not getting crisp...) is to make quiche. The effort is rather low and the result is usually something that is both healthy and tasty and the leftovers keep for a while. Nothing like a hot cup of joe and a slice of quiche for breakfast!

From Wikipedia: "Quiche is a savory, open-faced pastry crust dish with a filling of savory custard with cheese, meat or vegetables."

Now, some of you might be saying "ewww, quiche!" or even worse "real men don't eat quiche", which makes my heart burn hatefully with the heat of a thousand suns. Quiche has been a much-maligned foodstuff ever since Bruce Feirstein wrote his book "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" in 1982. Despite it's rather tongue-in-cheek definitions of masculinity, most people didn't read the book at all and simply restated the title.

Fools! They don't know what they are missing! Not only is it delicious, you can fill it with damned near anything.

We made our quiche from ham, celery, carrots, green beans, chard, and green onions. Topped with tomatoes and Gruyere cheese, it was a meal fit for a king. At no time did my masculinity come into question.

Eating like a boss,
