Snow Day!!!

Look at the poor tree in front of my apartment! He must be so darn cold. You can’t really see his buddy to the left, but I’m sure they’re chatting about all the snow. (Please, forgive the poor quality of the picture, I took it through my kitchen window, that’s why it looks like it was taken through a screen or something. Because it was. Anywhoooo…)

I’m sure everyone in Jersey probably has a similar view when they look outside, but I just wanted to capture the real essence of  today’s snow-day-ness.(Random Thought. Snow always makes me think of Christmas? I know it’s come and gone already, but I’ve been humming Jingle Bells all day and I can’t stop. Does anyone else have this problem?? Resume Post.)

Snow day means no class AND no work. I’ve got a pile of dishes in the sink, a room to be cleaned and homework I could get a head start on. What’s a girl to do when she’s stuck inside all day?????

MAKE QUICHE!

Delightfully comforting on such a snowy day,
this Bacon, Broccoli
and Cheddar Quiche was the absolute perfect
brunch meal.

Bacon, Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

  • 1 frozen, ready-made pie crust (thawed)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 slices of thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 bag steam-in-a-bag frozen broccoli (yes, that’s the technical term), prepared to package directions, chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º.
  2. Prick the bottom of your pie crust all over with a fork (to prevent bubbles from forming during cooking) and place in the oven for about five minutes, just until you begin to smell it. Remove and set aside.
  3. Place the chopped bacon into a large frying pan. Cook over high heat until brown and crispy, about seven minutes Add the red onion during the last minute of cooking time. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and pepper until it forms a smooth mixture. Add the cheese, broccoli, and bacon. Mix to combine.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the reserved pie crust. Top with remaining cheese.
  6. Cook for 40 minutes or until the eggs are set and the cheese on top is melted and brown.
  7. Let cool about 15 minutes before serving.

    That quiche looks phenomenal! I love quiche, but it has been a while since I have made one. I need to change that! Love the broccoli in it!

    Although most of my friends will tell you bacon is a vegetable – I thought the broccoli would be a nice way to feel less guilty about eating it. Heh. 🙂
