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.

London Fog Smoothie

Thoughts Before Cooking:

I’m borrowing this recipe from my sister blog JaneAustenRunsMyLife.wordpress.com as she is an avid tea fan.

It originally comes from Pinterest, but the source site is unreachable.

Oh well

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Vanilla Yogurt (I used Greek Yogurt)
  • 1/3 Cup of Almond Milk (I don’t like almond so I used regular)
  • 1/3 Cup of Earl Grey Tea
  • 1 Cup of Crushed Ice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon of Honey

Directions:

  1. Combine all and blend.
  2. Serve.
  3. Top with whipped cream if desired.

Thoughts After Cooking:

This was better than the Fauxccino as I think having the cup of tea added to it better than the ice cubes. It came out a bit watery so I really thinking combining the two would work best. It didn’t come out super sweet with the Greek Yogurt and regular milk, so I added French Vanilla Creamer to sweeten it up. Regular yogurt would have been a better choice, but I know for next time. The cinnamon was very strong too, I would have done way less-just a dash.

Otherwise, it was very good. And a great tea drinking method for the summertime.

Thoughts Before Cooking:

So my niece was learning about Japan and wanted to cook some Japanese food. She’s extremely picky so I had a hard time finding something she would enjoy.
