foody fridays: springtime quiche
One of the first things to come up in my garden in the spring is chard (because I have covered it over winter), so this exquisite quiche recipe is a Springtime go-to. Quiche always reminds me of Spring somehow...
This recipe is excellent, enjoy!
1 frozen pie shell (I sometimes use gluten free)
1 large leek
1 tsp thyme (fresh is possible)
4-5 large leafs of chard
1 1/4 cup whole milk
3 large eggs+2 yolks
1 t salt, 1/4 t pepper
Melt butter in skillet and saute leeks add thyme, salt pepper. Cook until tender but not brown, approx 10-12 minutes. Add chard and saute 4 more minutes. Cool mixture. Preheat oven to 425F, whisk milk and eggs together, add cooled saute mix and blend. Pour into pie shell, bake 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350 and bake until set in center approx 15 min at sealevel and more like 35 minutes at elevation.
