My team at work was having a breakfast party for a coworks who surrvied 25 year of job, job title, telephone number changes. Go coworker!
In her honor I made mini kale and bacon quiches. Boy was it easy! The important thing to remember is the ratio of milk and eggs, 2 eggs to a cup of milk. I have found many recipies try to make cooking to hard. Most quiche recipies call for cream and whole milk, I had neither. I finally found a blog that explained how quiches work and advised the type milk product doesn't matter and guess what, they were right. Since I can't drink milk anymore I don't keep it in the house, so I used what I had, powdered nonfat milk and it worked fine. There is no real recipe, just remember 2 to 1 and bake at 350 degrees.
|Remove the stems from the kale|
|Start sauteing some chopped bacon|
|Add the kale to the bacon and cook down|
|Until it looks like this, wrap it in a dish towel and squeeze the daylights out of it. I forgot to do this and the quiche was a little wet.|
|Put some cheese (mine was frozen) in the bottom of a mini muffin tin.|
|Add some of the kale and bacon mixture|
|Mix 2 eggs with 1 cup of milk and whisk until frothy. I added salt and pepper, the salt was unnecessary. I also mixed the egg mixture, one batch at a time, since I had no idea how much I needed. I think used a batch a half.|
|Pour the egg mixture over the kale and cheese|
|Bake it at 350 degrees for about 15 mins|
The reviews from my coworkers were pretty good and I don't think they were just being nice. In total it took about 30 to 45 mins, start to finish. It was really quick. I think there are more quiches in my future. I have also read they freeze well.
