Ray’s Birthday Meal

I made this quiche for Ray today for his birthday.  The kale came straight my garden out back.

I would highly recommend this recipe.  I made a few substitutions which I believe improve the recipe in some key areas. Otherwise, it’s a 5 star!

About This Recipe

“Even using whole milk and full fat ingredients, this is fairly low cal, but if fat-free or low fat alternatives this would be a great low cal/low fat brunch or lunch dish. Recipe source: local newspaper”

Ingredients

    • 1 prepared 9 inch pie shell
    • 3 eggs (I used 4 eggs)
    • 3/4 cup half-and-half (I used 1 cup nonfat milk for all the milk in the recipe.)
    • 3/4 cup milk (Read my note above.)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    • black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 5 green onions, minced (I used a yellow whole onion.)
    • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 2 cups kale, chopped (Fresh from the garden)quiche7
    • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated (I used a cup.)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425-degrees F.
  2. Tear off a piece of foil large enough to fit inside of pie crust and then press it into the pie crust and fill with dried beans. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and discard foil and beans. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl whisk together eggs, half and half, milk, salt, red pepper flakes (if using) and black pepper. Set aside.
  4. In a skillet on medium high heat oil and butter and add onions and garlic, cooking until softened (3-5 minutes). Stir in kale and cook stirring until wilted (5 minutes).
  5. Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with cheese. Pour egg/milk mixture over all.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until set.
