I’ve been a tad obsessed with quiche lately…it’s a great comfort food and without the crust (or with a coconut or almond flour crust) it’s pretty primal and low-carb.
I love smoked salmon (hot smoked or cold smoked) but since I’m trying to avoid eating bagels (my favorite carrier for smoked salmon) I decided to try throwing it in a quiche.
I’d like to try the salmon quiche again with leeks instead of caramelized onions. And no spinach. And I definitely need to use fewer eggs and a lot more cream/half-half/milk. I started skimping the last few times because I was low on cream or half-half but it really needs cream or some such….my quiches are starting to taste like solid scrambled eggs with meats/veggies added. Not horrible but not quite the quiche experience. I’ve also been a little skimpy on cheese, which I plan to rectify next time.
As usual, I eyeballed everything so no specific recipes. Just some visuals.
I did a broccoli/mushroom pie as well.
And I made “breaded” (almond flour, shredded cheese and some GF bread crumbs) baked chicken breasts also cause my hubby and 14yo son don’t find quiche alone to be a meal. Go figure!
It was our first time eating Simple Truth’s Organic free-range chicken breasts. They were delicious and at $6.99 per pound they’re affordable. Not quite pastured but the closest thing I’ve found locally.
