I feel like this week’s recipe might almost be healthy. It does have some cream, but I mostly filled the pie shells with apples, onions and cheese! The first time I had a quiche with apples was over Christmas at my sister-in-law’s house. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole thing. If I hadn’t tried Ingrid’s quiche I might not have been too keen to try this week’s recipe, but Ingrid taught me that I can enjoy new things! The gorgonzola wasn’t at all overpowering. The whole thing made for a delicious lunch. I actually made this as individual tarts, and I didn’t bother making my own pie crust. The grocery store had pre-made pie dough on sale for a quarter. How can I refuse that?! The other great thing about this recipe is that it can be made ahead. I made it the night before, and then just re-heated it in the toaster oven when it was time to eat.
This is a recipe that I definitely recommend. My only regret is that I rushed taking the pictures, because I think that they looked a lot better in real life!
p.s. Am I the only one conflicted about what to watch on Sunday night? There are Super Bowl commercials for the “Big Game,” but then there’s also Downton Abbey. What to do?!
