Hillshire Farm Crustless Quiche

 Thoughts Before Cooking:

So I do not like quiches. I don’t like the way the egg tastes when it is baked. It just does not appeal to me.

But since Tuesday’s review was on A Quiche Before Dyinga quiche recipe was needed. So I searched throughout the web and chose this one from Hillshire Farms.

Ingredients:

  • 12 Ounces Hillshire Smoked Sausage
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1.5 Cups of Whipping Cream
  • 1.5 Tsps of Dry Mustard
  • 1/4 Tsp of Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp of Black Pepper
  • 1.5 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 13×9-inch baking dish.
  3. Cut the susage into 1/2 inch cubes, set aside.
  4. Place eggs, cream, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl-whisk until smooth.
  5. Stir in sausage, 1 cup of cheese, and green pepper.
  6. Pour egg mixture into the greased pan.
  7. Bake 40-45 mins or until the eggs are set.
  8. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheese and let stand 5 mins before serving.

Thoughts After Baking:

So I ran out of cheese to put on top, I thought I had more than I actually did. This quiche was pretty good, I ate half of it, but I’m still not a quiche fan. It is the best quiche I’ve had so far.

Polka Dot Macaroni and Cheese

So as I stated in my book review of Peach Cobbler Murder, I don’t like Peach Cobbler at all not one bit.

IDon'tlikeit

And since I don’t like to eat peaches in any other form than just eating the fruit, I decided to just skip it all together and post something completely different.

Thoughts Before Cooking:

So my niece wanted to make this recipe called Polka Dot Macaroni and Cheese, but when I looked at the recipe it asked for Cheddar cheese soup and some other stuff that didn’t sound good. So instead I choose a Paula Dean recipe for Macaroni and Cheese and added the extra items to make it “Polka-Dotted”.

Thoughts After Cooking:

I’ve never been one for the hot dog and Mac & cheese combo; but I loved this. The Mac and Cheese is of course phenomenal, but the hotdog added an extra boost.
