Welcome to Tasty Tuesday at Dandelion House! Your go to spot for trying something new and healthy each week in your farm kitchen.
Springing forward gives homesteaders a LOT to look forward too. The warming of the soil, seed starting, clean hen houses, baby chicks and more FARM FRESH EGGS on hand for baking and cooking. With more eggs in your basket than you know what to do with what could be more perfect than a recipe that calls for EGGS and LOTS of them? Today's Tasty Tuesday recipe comes from the kitchen of fellow farmgirl ( and loyal FARMGIRL FRIDAY participant ) Candy C. of Lazy J Bar C Farm Blog. She's been joining our hop since the very beginning sharing delicious recipes, and farm-life from her corner of the world. Here's what Candy has to say about why QUICHE is one of her favorite pies to make. ( Mine too Candy )!
|If I could be a pie, I would want to be a quiche. Making quiche defines my current philosophy towards cooking and baking...use what you have on hand and use as many homegrown or locally grown ingredients as possible. For this basic quiche, I used our farm fresh eggs, some spicy, pepper-jack style cheese made with our goat milk and some of the milk itself. The bacon is local and came from one of the vendors at the Farmer's Market. During the late fall and early winter, I can even get locally grown onions at the Farmer's Market. The beauty of quiche is that pretty much anything goes for the filling, meat or no meat, any type of cheese or even no cheese, and any vegetables you want to include.
