Crustless Quiche with Strawberry and Bacon Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

My normal routine is pretty much putting out fires all day.

Grocery Shopping Day!

I am pretty routine; I find I wake up in a better mood if I know what is coming. I make my menu on Sunday, shop on Monday and then re-shop on Thursday for more produce and dairy. So far I have had Ninja with me and the 2 girls. This is a good thing :)

I live in a small town so it easy to go to individual stores to get the items I need. I go to Quality Greens for my local fresh produce. I love it there. I feel like Norm from Cheers! K, maybe the workers don’t know my name but they are friendly and they talk to the kids. They even clean carrots for HoneyBear to snack on while I shop! I appreciate that they go the distance and I support them. I am a person that values loyalty… so even when the new Super Store moved in, I continued to shop at the local store.

With that being said, after we bought our produce we went to Super Store lol let’s be honest, I’m not rich. So, when I need dairy and dry goods, Walmart or Super Store can’t be beat.

Then we went to Safeway… they have the best cheese and I had won a free 12 pack of pop. I am not usually a pop drinker, but, I AM a person that takes advantage of FREE things!

Every week I like to try a meatless dinner. Tonight is quiche… with ham and bacon. I know not quite meatless but close enough. LOL

Crustless Quiche
Adapted from The Café Sucre Farine

1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1 teaspoon Thai chili, finely chopped
6 green onions, finely sliced
1 cup fresh corn, kernels cut from cobs
1 red pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
½ cup cooked and crumbled bacon, divided
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup marble cheese, shredded
8 large eggs
1 cup 2% milk 
Paprika to taste

*I also had some leftover deli ham, a 1/4 of a red onion and a handful of spinach in the fridge, so I tossed it all in*

*Every year I buy extra corn for dinner. I roast them all and then cut the leftovers off their cobs. Bag & freeze. Fresh corn for dinners and soups all winter long!*

Preheat oven to 375˚F.

Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger and Thai chili pepper and cook for 30 seconds. Add green onions, corn, red pepper, spinach and salt; stir to combine. Cook another 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl to cool.

Bright happy colors for a dreary day!

Combine milk and eggs in a bowl and whisk.

Mix flour, basil, 1/4 cup bacon, ham and cheeses into corn mixture.

Add eggs to corn mixture and mix well.

Spray 4 French onion soup bowls with Pam and place on a sheet pan. Scoop egg mixture into bowls.

As you can see this made enough for 4 adults and 1 child
Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven and sprinkle paprika, salt & pepper and with remaining 1/4 cup bacon. Bake for another 5 minutes or until golden.

Garnished with a little fresh parsley... just for the picture :)

Strawberry and Bacon Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
Adapted from Lauren’s Latest

1 head green leaf lettuce

1/4 red onion, diced
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Top torn lettuce with strawberries, onion, nuts, a sprinkle of Feta and bacon.

I like to let everyone add their own nuts, cheese, and bacon

salt & pepper
1 teaspoon poppyseeds

Put all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk. Chill.
