I LOVE to make a big homemade breakfast. my specialty, quiche. it is really quite easy and so delicious.
first, you must have a homemade crust. the recipe I use time and time again:
*1 1/4 cup flour
*1/2 teas salt
*1/2 teas sugar
*6 tbls butter-pea size
*6-8 tbls water
the absolute key in making a good crust is chilling your ingredients. once you sift the ingredients, cut your butter to pea size shape, & measure 6-8 tbls water. put all of these ingredients (3 separate bowls) in the freezer for 10 minutes.
after 10 mintues, mix butter & flour mixture. beginning adding water a little at a time. once your flour glues to your butter you have added enough water. put back in bowl and freezer for 5 mintues.
then flour your board and begin rolling
a key to knowing your pie crust is going to rock is if you can fold it:
then shape in your cute pie plate:
*1 cup half & half
*salt & pepper to taste
*1 1/2 c mild cheddar cheese
*any vegetables you like in your quiche
this time I used spinach, artichoke hearts, onions, rosemary, roasted garlic, & sun-dried tomatoes.
be creative & enjoy!
