Ham and Broccoli Quiche

We started some Easter prep tonight blowing out 16 eggs for decorating later this week. Once cleaned out we had a surplus of eggs that we thought about freezing for later (always an option if you don’t want to eat them right away) but instead decided to make dinner with them!

Instead of regular breakfast options I decided to make a savory delicious and simple quiche!

This recipe is super simple to make and it turns out so pretty.

Here is what you need:

18 eggs

1c. Heavy cream

1c. Cheddar cheese shredded

2 small heads of broccoli chopped

1/2 lb small cubed ham

2- pie crusts

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place pie crusts into pie pans and set aside. In a large bowl stir together all of the other remaining ingredients. Split filling evenly between the two pie shells.

I rolled the crust down toward the filling and placed in the oven for 25-30 or until filling is firm and top is brown.

Allow to cool for a couple minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy!!

Garlic Parmesan Surf and Turf!

It’s been really tough to plan meals with the stores being low stocked on staple items that I use a lot of. So I’ve had to improvise.

Chicken was on short supply at my last visit to the local grocery mart. But they had tons of sirloin and this immediately made me think of surf and turf! So a quick trip to frozen foods and I was in business! Plenty of frozen uncooked shrimp in stock!

I already new I had a few essentials in my pantry. I picked up some parmesan cheese shreds, and a few fresh veggies for a sauteed side dish. The result was a delicious meal with very few ingredients that were super easy to find, or that I already had on hand!

Here’s what you need:

1lb chopped sirloin, stew meat will work too

1lb frozen medium shrimp uncooked and peeled

*unpeeled shrimp is cheaper if cost is an issue you can peel them and devein them at home if needed

3 large cloves of garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 tbsp salted butter

1/2c parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Parsley garnish if desired

Thaw shrimp under cool water.

Turn a large skillet onto medium high heat add oil, and sirloin. Cook for 2-3 minutes add garlic.

Cook until meat is almost cooked to desired doneness and add shrimp, salt and pepper, cook through and add butter and parmesan cheese. Stir until melted. Garnish with parsley.

Serve hot! You can put this over pasta or rice if you’d like, or like we did eat it on it’s own with some simple sauteed veggies! Enjoy!!
