Everybody loves quiche. And it’s a very good, easy weeknight dinner whenever you’re completely uninspired and your pantry is devoid of anything coherent. All you need is some kind of crust (I love to use low-fat puff pastry, but you can use an unsweetened pie crust of any sort), a few eggs, cheese, any cheese, and some kind of vegetable, and you’re good to go.

The other night I made this:

Looks almost fancy, I think. And it even tasted fancy, even though it was all short-cuts.

All I did was:

  • unwrap the puff pastry, drape it over a 9x13in baking pan (ungreased, my puff pastry came rolled out on baking paper = no pan clean-up! Yay for baking paper!),
  • scramble 4 eggs with 1 cup of sour cream, 1 tbsp corn starch, some salt and pepper, marjoram, and italian mixed herbs,
  • slice or crumble up a piece of Bavarian blue cheese and cover the bottom of the pastry-lined baking pan with it,
  • open a jar of artichoke hearts, (stir some of the liquid into your egg batter, if you like) drain them, and layer them over the cheese,
  • open a jar of green asparagus, (stir some of the liquid into your egg batter, if you like) drain them, and layer them over the artichokes in a fancy stripey pattern,
  • pour the egg batter over the whole kit and caboodle and bake that thang in a 200°C/390°F oven for 30 minutes.

Ta daa!

Dinner is served, everybody’s happy!
