Eat This: Simple Spinach & Artichoke Dip, Mushroom & Sausage Quiche

This recipe is extremely easy! I love it because I hardly have to prepare anything at all and don’t have to grate any cheese. You will need:

One large casserole dish
12 eggs
One cup of milk
Two pre-made pie crusts
Salt & Pepper to taste
One large tub spinach and artichoke dip (from Sam’s Club)

Half a package of sliced mushrooms
Half a pound of breakfast sausage

  1. Sautée the sausage and mushrooms in a skillet.
  2. While that’s cooking thaw out the pie crusts and pre-heat your oven to 325.
  3. Beat 12 eggs and one cup of milk with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Unroll your pie crusts and line the inside of your casserole dish.
  5. Spoon out a layer of spinach artichoke dip onto the bottom and spread it to cover the bottom of the crust.

  6. Pour a little of the egg mixtue on top of the layer of dip.
  7. Add a few handfuls of sausage and mushroom mixture to the bottom layer.
  8. Do another layer of the dip and then another layer of sausage and mushrooms.
  9. Finish the layers with remaining egg mixture.
  10. Bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours, or until firm.

(Note: I was baking a turkey at 325, and several other dishes, while I baked this. I think you could do 350 for 45 minutes for starters and just wait until it’s done – keep adding on 10 minutes until you see a beautiful cooked top of your quiche. If you break this up into pie dishes, rather than casserole dishes, start with 45 minutes for sure.)

 

Eat This: Super Simple Blueberry Streusel Loaf French Toast

When I decided to make this, it was more of a “Hmm, what the heck am I making for breakfast today?” kind of moment. A “Well, I have this bread, I haven’t tried it, it’s getting old, might as well make French Toast out of it” kind of moment. Unfortunately it was also a “babies are hogging the phone so I’m going to pretend I’m not eating, and go eat this in peace” kind of moment. Alas, no photos. That’s ok though.

Simplest. French Toast. Ever.

  1. Three eggs. A little milk. Wisk it. Dip the Archer Farms (Target brand) “Blueberry Streusel Breakfast Bread” bread in (yeah, I said bread bread).
  2. Fry it on a skillet in some oil (I used olive oil and a tortilla warmer made by a totally legitimate New Mexican welder). If you’re making the whole loaf, you’ll need about 6 eggs. But who is going to eat an entire loaf of French Toast? Not us (yet).

Now normally, I prefer to make my French Toast with vanilla, cinnamon and occasionally, mulling spices if i am using a more boring bread. No need here. The Blueberry Streusel bread already has all those delicious flavors and you don’t have to do Jack squat else.

I used real maple syrup but you can eat it without that, in your hands like a 2 year old, if you prefer.
