My dad isn’t a big breakfast person, but I wanted to do something kind of special for his birthday, so I whipped up this super quick breakfast quiche. I’m just gonna give you guys a recipe for one, but you can multiply and make as many as you need 🙂
I had a tiny bit of left over pie crust in the freezer from a while ago, seriously, only enough for this one quiche, but it was all I needed! My recipe for pie crust is on this post, but store bought crust is welcome. I always like having pastry crust in my house, in case of a baking emergency 😛
Ingredients (for 1 quiche):
- about a 1 1/2 inch ball of pastry dough, thawed
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp milk or heavy cream
- 1 tbsp shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
- 2 slices of salami (or you can substitute other cold meat)
- black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F. Roll out your dough and place over one of the cups of a large, upside down muffin tin (large muffins, not like a huge tin). Cook the pastry in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes, until set, then remove from the oven and let cool while you whip up the filling.
Beat the egg with the cream with a fork or small whisk, making it as frothy and fluffy as possible. Tear salami into very small pieces, add them to the egg, and beat again.
Remove your crust from the cookie tin and put on a plate. Fill the crust with the egg mixture, sprinkle on cheese, and pepper to taste. Place in the microwave for one minute to start, and be amused as you watch it puff up into a balloon. Use your judgement, and if you don’t think it’s cooked through (aka, it’s still a little jiggly), microwave for another 30 seconds.
A perfect, special breakfast for one!
