The past few days I have been craving sugar like crazy. The more I think about it, I have been craving sugar and dessert ever since the wedding shower and all of those cookies. I find the best way to avoid caving in, is to eat fruit or something high in protein. Mid afternoon this meant eating a grapefruit and for dinner – eggs.
I love quiche, but I rarely feel like making crust, so tonight I opted for a crustless quiche. I have a feeling that there is actually a name for this, but I searched google and crustless quiche seems to be an accepted term. Accompanying the crustless quiche will be a simple salad and homemade biscuits.
The recipe, which I made up, was quite simple – throw caramelized onions, cooked peppers and mushrooms, grated mozzarella cheese, eggs, salt and pepper into a dish and then bake.
I think I put too much hope into what the caramelized onions would do to the dish. That they were some magical ingredient. I’ll admit I’ve never made caramelized onions before and I was basing this solely on this little sandwich shop that uses caramelized onions – super tasty. I didn’t think it would be too hard, and it wasn’t, but I overcooked them – some pieces were a little on the crunchy/crispy side.
I had high hopes for my crustless quiche, but I must admit it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Totally edible, but it lacked any real flavor sophistication. In hindsight the only times my quiche’s turn out are when goat cheese and avocado’s are involved. Otherwise my lesson for the future is ask Chris to do it. No matter what he does to eggs, they always taste amazing. I think I am more of a french toast specialist.
