Peggy came up with a fun theme for this week’s Eating with Ellie – Barnyard Fun!  The theme left it wide open for just about anything one would find in a barn or farm yard – beef, pork, chicken, duck, eggs.  So many different things we could choose from.  The first thing I thought of was eggs.  Because I used to have fun collecting the eggs when we lived on a farm for a couple of years.  I also loved to help bring the cows down to the barn for milking and feeding the chickens.  But since I didn’t feel like making something from beef or chickens {We are basically chickened out!} I went with eggs which turned into a quiche.

A lovely  Broccoli Cheddar “Quiche in a Bag”

In a bag because after cooking some ingredients all of the ingredients are ‘squished’ together in a bag before pouring into an no-roll olive oil pie crust.  Ellie also makes it in a bag so it will be easy to freeze to make it later if you want. 

I made the crust and I made the quiche.  Neither one set my palate on fire!  The crust is a crumble crust much like a graham cracker crust and while I like the idea of that it was tasteless.  Water, flour, salt milk, olive oil.

The quiche contained broccoli and sharp cheddar cheese with some dry mustard, salt, and pepper.  I didn’t think it had much flavor either.  With a little more seasoning and maybe a touch of nutmeg it would have been much better.  It wasn’t bad, but it just lacked something.  Doesn’t mean I won’t make it again, just with something more…

The crust and the quiche are from Ellie’s you have it made.  Pages 33 and 35.

And if you would like to join Eating with Ellie all the themes are listed.  Just cook something for the theme from one of Ellies books or online, post a comment.  We’d love to have you.  PS  We don’t include the recipe.  We would love you to simply buy her books.
