Remember the book "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche"? Well the title became a common saying during the 80's. As I made a joke to my eighth graders and quoted that very saying, they looked at me quite puzzled. Not only had they never heard the saying, they had never had quiche.
I love quiche. Quiche and salad is the ultimate lunch for me. So, because this is a very small class of 8th grade boys, and it meets at 8:00 am, I decided to make them quiche.
I offered a variety of "flavors" and they chose tex-mex. This recipe is from the prettiest cookbook, Goodness Gracious by Roxie Kelley. Yes, cookbooks must have great photos or artwork for it to be considered for purchase! The art work is fabulous, quite similar to Susan Branch's watercolors.
The boys LOVED the quiche....and each one left class with this recipe so they could prepare it at home:
Fiesta Quiche (page 97)
2 c milk
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 onion diced
7 oz chopped green chiles
2 cups grated monterey jack cheese
Combine all ingredients and pour into a 9" pie shell.
Bake for 40 minutes.
A photo? No...they ate it too quickly!
My favorite quiche is spinach and bacon...Yours?
