Recipes so Easy, Even a Caveman Could Make Them: Quiche

Fun for brunch or "breakfast for dinner", quiche is easy to make and delicious to eat.


6 eggs (I used three duck eggs and three chicken eggs)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 cup heavy cream
Pinch cayenne pepper
Pinch sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
1/2 small white onion (chopped)
1 small carrot shredded
2-3 slices pre-cooked bacon (chopped)
1 cup good shredded cheese (no "cheeze" or "whiz" please)
2 tbsp potato starch
3 cups fresh spinach or chard (chopped)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1-2 tbsp butter (to grease pie dish)

Step 1: Buy good eggs

Rich orange yolks are the sign of a winner.

Step 2: Season

Add cayenne and black pepper, sea salt, and heavy cream to the eggs and mix thoroughly.

Step 3: Prepare your "crust"

In a grease pie dish, combine onion, bacon, cheese, and carrots.  Add enough potato starch to coat and press lightly to the edges of the dish.

Step 4: Pre-Bake

Bake the crust in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Step 5: Go green

Remove the pre-baked crust from the oven and fill with greens.  Pour the egg mixture over the greens and put back into the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

Step 6: The final countdown

Remove the quiche from the oven and sprinkle with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.

Step 7: Chow down

After you remove your quiche from the oven, let it rest for 5-10 minutes.  Enjoy along with salsas, sour cream,  or additional bacon.
