Quiches + Frittatas

Black Forest Ham + Carmelized Onion Quiche

This, my friends, I am convinced is voodoo.

I went on a huge quiche kick and made three.freaking.quiches in one week. This recipe was the third that I had tried and is absolute proof that the third time is the charm!

Not only that but this isn’t my first time typing up this post… no… in fact I had a beautiful and well thought out post drafted. Then, the platform I utilize did not autosave. It typically does every few minutes and since it did not, I lost everything.

The whole thing, just gone!

::Shakes fist::

Its that voodoo I tell ya!

Anyways, have you ever had a craving for something so badly but every time you think you nailed it, your efforts just fell short? Let me tell you its always utterly devastating, to say the least, but once I came across this recipe from The View From Great Island I was absolutely gobsmacked!

Speechless… Honestly, no words can do justice to what I had experienced. It was as if life around me started to fade out into the distance as I had what can only be described as a spiritual awakening of sorts.

What was the revelation you ask?


There I said it.

I know, I know- and I apologize for being so vulgar but as I stated I was absolutely speechless and this is just a by-product of that!

Who is this woman even?

High priestist of the local villages coven who specializes in making us mere mortals weak in the knees over her delicious quiches?

IDK… but it’s not too far fetched…

But clearly, when it comes to quiches and spiritual awakenings, all dignity is checked at the door as I endure the motions of my gluttonous rollercoaster.

Step 3

In a stand mixer, combine eggs, cream, Marscapone, and parmesan cheese. beat with the whisk attachment until fully blended.

Step 4

Scatter ham and onions over the pie shell evenly. Pour the custard mixture evenly over the top being careful not to overfill the pan (there may be some left over).
