ham & vegetable quiche                                   july 11, 2013

Add the ham and cook until the spinach wilts.

In a big skillet melt the butter and add the onion, garlic, squash and red pepper.  Saute about 5 minutes, then add the rest of the vegetables.

Chop up your onion, red pepper, squash, garlic, mushroom and green onion.

Mmmm....quiche.  But there was always something wrong, to me, with the recipes I tried.  Not nearly enough cheese!  Now I know to be a quiche it needs to be eggy, but why not cheesy too?  My version isn't for brunch, it's for dinner!

Here's tonight's meal...full of fresh vegetables and yes, lots of cheese.  Your kids WILL eat this quiche, and all the vegetables in it, even if they don't like vegetables.  If you family doesn't like ham, substitute ground beef or whatever you like!  Easy and gluten free!

Lots of fresh ingredients here.  Lots of color!  My new kitchen lighting helps too!

Put the 2 cups of cheese over the vegetables, then pour the mixture over the vegetable and ham, and stir gently to get the mix distributed throughout.  Top with a bit more cheese. 

Wisk together the 3 eggs with the gluten free Bisquick and the milk. Find the Gluten Free Bisquick right next to the regular in your grocery store.  It is an amazing substitution for a crust!

Transfer the skillet contents to a buttered pie plate.

Serve with a simple green salad.  Yum yum yum!

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until cheese is browned and quiche is set.

Looks good, doesn't it?  It is.
