It’s a beautiful thing to eat a good soft boiled egg with toast in the morning, and egg salad sandwiches for lunch–yes, please! And those big family celebrations, how about strata? It’s endless, the recipes and ways of using eggs to enrich the menu!
Quiche For A Crowd
(makes four quiche)
4 pie crusts
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup half and half
salt, pepper, and nutmeg
2 lbs cheese shredded ( we used dill Havarti,
sharp cheddar, and goat cheese)
2 heads broccoli diced
1 huge onion small diced
16oz mushrooms small diced
1 lb ground sausage, cooked
1 lb bacon nice and crispy and chopped
place chopped broccoli on a sheet pan with oil and salt and pepper and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until there is a slightly crispy edge to the broccoli. Set aside. Cook bacon on a sheet pan as well- 350 degrees for ten minutes or until fully cooked. Chop when cool and set aside. Brown breakfast sausage in skillet and when cooked through take meat out and place in a bowl. Keep the drippings in pan and add mushrooms and onions. Cook on medium for 7-10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl combine 36 eggs and two cups whipping cream and one cup half and half and salt, pepper, and nutmeg- roughly a teaspoon of each and using a whisk, whip it up making sure all yolks are broken and well mixed with cream.
One by one place items in pie crusts, first onion and mushroom mixture, then meat, then broccoli, then sprinkle on the cheese and lastly pour egg and cream mixture over the top until crust is full to the brim. Bake on center rack until firm to touch. About 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and eat. If you are crazy egg lovers like us, double or quadruple this recipe and share some egg pie with your friends or put some in the freezer! They keep in the freezer for three months, and all you have to do is defrost them and microwave each slice for one minute.
On our YouTube Channel we also made omelets! I’m not going to write out a recipe for an omelet- but do watch the video as the trickiest part about omelets is cooking the egg through without overcooking! We found using a pot lid to “steam” the omelet is perfect!
Many blessings to you and your families as we approach Holy Week! And keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway next week! How does your family use eggs?
