This year's Easter party seemed to be a success. Everyone enjoyed a toasty bonfire, beer, sausages, ritual sacrifices of stuffed animals, a drunken attempt at summoning Satan and an official countdown to the Resurrection.
The morning brunch was also quite successful, as we enjoyed drinking mimosas and making faces at babies-- including Sandra and Rene's newborn, Brooks, who was dressed rather stylishly as a burrito.
To celebrate, I helped make four delicious varieties of quiche... I am posting my favorite as people always seem to be emailing me asking for recipes.
Easter Hangover QuicheIngredients
1. two cups of grated cheese (we used swiss, but cheddar might be better)
2. four eggs
3. one and 1/3 cup milk
4. one deep dish pie crust
5. a large handful or two of thinly sliced zucchini sauteed with garlic and olive oil, enough to create a thick layer in the pie (although spinach might be yummier)
6. some mushrooms sauteed with garlic and olive oil
7. four slices of chopped, cooked bacon (or more if desired)
8. a bunch of chopped scallions
9. a bunch of fresh dill
10. some fresh cilantro or fresh basil
11. a few pinches of paprika
12. salt and fresh ground black pepper to tasteSteps
1. preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. pile the grated cheese in an even layer in the bottom of the pie crust
3. layer the zucchini evenly next
4. layer the mushrooms
5. layer the bacon and scallions
6. layer all the fresh herbs on top of that (make sure to use a LOT of dill)
7. throw the eggs and milk into a bowl and really beat
the hell out of the mixture, making sure to add some salt and pepper in the process
8. pour the egg/milk mixture into the pie crust on top of the other ingredients
9. sprinkle some paprika on top
