Let’s begin with an appetizer guaranteed to stimulate eager waiting appetites.
Blue Cheese Quiche in a Potato Crust
- 5 extra-large eggs
- 2 cups refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Nonstick oil spray
- 3 strips ready-to-serve prepared bacon, chopped
- 1/4 medium onion, thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Heat up your oven to around 375 degrees or so. Begin by mixing one of the eggs with the potatoes, flour, salt, and pepper. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with the oil. Press the potato mixture into the plate to form the crust. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is set and browned. Remove from the oven and firm up any loose spots with a wooden spoon. Now you get to use those Bosch burners on the stovetop!
Heat up a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Place the chopped bacon in the pan and cook until the bottom of the pan is wet from the bacon fat. Add the onion and saute’ until the onion and bacon are browned.
Beat the remaining eggs and the milk together. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the bacon, onion mixture, and the blue cheese. Pour into the crust and bake for 20 minutes until the top is brown and the filling is set.
This tasty treat serves 12. We’re now going to throw together one of our favorite recipes. Why? Because it’s easy, quick, and scrump-diddly-delicious. While you wait, why not check out some of our all-time favorite recipes here.
While the quiche is baking you look inside your Frigidaire refrigerator and spy some boneless, skinless chicken breasts sitting all pretty and smiling and waiting to be cooked up and ate. “Hey, ladies, how about some good ol’ fashioned chicken noodle soup?” They affirm your choice and so off you go again, scurrying about the kitchen like a contestant for a national cooking contest grabbing all the ingredients you need.
Chicken Noodle Soup
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1/4 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (Are we making jello?)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup shredded carrot
- 1 boneless chicken breast half, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated fresh angel hair pasta, strands cut in half
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
In a 6-quart pan saute’ the onion, carrot, and chicken until the vegetables are tender, about 5-minutes. Add the chicken stock and gelatin. Heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Add the pasta and the parsley. Allow to simmer for another minute or so. Serves a party of six.
