We enjoy a good quiche, whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anytime in between. My children especially enjoy making a variety of quiches, adding in their own choice of ingredients.
We woke up early on a Sunday morning and the children asked for a good, hearty breakfast quiche, so we not only added a generous serving of spinach and other vegetables, we also crumbled a couple of pieces of turkey bacon.
And the crust, made with spelt flour, using our Wondermill Grain Mill, was the perfect finishing touch!
To make this quiche, we used:
- 5 oz. of cooked spinach
- 1/4 cup of pico de gallo
- 2 cups of finely shredded cheese
- 12 eggs
- 3 cooked strips of turkey bacon, crumbled
And to make the crust:
- 1 cup of spelt berries, milled
- 2 egg whites
Mix these two ingredients and press into the baking dish. Depending on your preference for crust, you can cut the measurement in half for a thinner crust.
After pouring the mix onto the crust, bake at 350 degrees in a pie plate for 45-50 minutes, or until the quiche is completely set.
Isn’t it beautiful? A high protein, hearty meal, with a nutritious spelt crust to satisfy our appetites. Everyone, from the grown-ups all the way down to the 19 month old toddler, enjoyed this quiche!
If any of the extra quiche ingredients sound unappealing, feel free to leave them out, substitute with another favorite food, or add an extra helping of an ingredient in lieu of adding a separate food. I don’t think we’ve ever made the same quiche twice, but they always turn out great.
