Does Georgia have a Spring? Sometimes I feel like Spring in
Georgia is only here for about 3 weeks and if you not really
watching for it you could miss it. I like Summer so I don't
want to complain too much but I would love to have a few
more sunny, 70-75 degree days.
With temperatures already in the 80's I am thinking about
dinners that are easy to make, hassle free and light.
So I begin this theme with Quiche.
Tomato, Basil, Proscuitto Quiche
1 large tomato, diced
2-3 slices Proscuitto, cooked and chopped
7-8 basil leaves, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozarella
1 9 inch, unbaked pie crust
Beat eggs in a large bowl and add milk and cream. Cook the proscuitto, then chop it into small pieces. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix well. Then pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour.
Quiche served with a nice salad makes a wonderful, light meal.
