With the holidays right around the corner I’ve already been thinking of ways I can make things easier on myself and family, so we can spend more time doing what really matters most. I want to focus my holiday on spending quality time with my family and less time worry about the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Eating good food is always a huge part of our family get-togethers. But I don’t want that to mean slaving for hours and hours over a tasty homemade meal, and that’s where this yummy, simple quiche comes in. It’s chock full of flavor and is sure to please your family and company this holiday season.
You may be wondering what a blender quiche is. So let me just tell you before we get any further. Traditionally a quiche is made with a flour crust and then filled with meat, veggies, cheese and egg. While this quiche is still full of those things it doesn’t require a crust to be made, it kind of makes it’s own crust. Instead of rolling out a crust, all you’ll do is add a little flour and baking powder into your egg mixture and as it bakes it settles, creating it’s very own crust. Genius right!? And that’s what I need when life is busy and full of family fun. I want an easy, delicious meal that isn’t going to require me to slave over it all day and that will please whoever I’ve have to feed.
Quiche is one of my favorite meals. It can pass as a breakfast, brunch or dinner meal – and we’ve had it for all 3. While blender quiches have been my friend over the years, the inspiration for this combo of flavors came after I was ooing and ahhhing over the Dietz & Watson product line at my local grocery store. They have incredible products, that are hand crafted and full of yummy flavor combos, find their products near you. Here is how you’ll make it…
Start by greasing a 8×8 baking ban or 1.5 quart baking dish. Then you’ll cover the bottom with a little bacon, and this flavor loaded honey cured turkey breast (from Dietz & Watson), you’ll sprinkle some green onion on to that and top it with this incredibly delicious Dietz & Watson Roasted Garlic NY State Cheddar Cheeses.
Next you’ll blend in a blender (or I like to use a large measuring cup and my immersion blender) some eggs, salt, pepper, sour cream, flour and baking powder.
Then you’ll pour the egg mixture over the meat and cheese and then it’s all ready to put in the oven to bake.
Bake it until it’s golden and cooked through. It’s so easy and simple, and my whole family gobbled it right up! These are my favorite kind of meals: tasty, easy and the whole family loves it!
I hope you’ll enjoy spending less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying those you love this holiday. Enjoy some quiche!
Roasted Garlic Cheese and Turkey Blender Quiche
- 2-3 slices of bacon optional
- 1 7 oz package of Dietz & Watson Honey Cured Deli Turkey Breast, roughly chopped
- 1 green onion sliced
- 3/4 - 1 cup Dietz & Watson Roasted Garlic NY State Cheddar Cheese grated
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease an 8x8 square pan, pie dish, or 1.5 quart baking dish and set aside.
If you choose to use bacon, start by cutting bacon into bite size pieces and browning in a skillet. Cook thoroughly but don't get it crispy, add the roughly chopped turkey and lightly brown for 1 minute (if you don't use the bacon, just lightly brown the chopped turkey for 1 minute in a little butter). Sprinkle the bacon and turkey on the bottom of your baking dish.
Sprinkle the green onion on top of the meat.
Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the onion.
In a blender (or 8 cup measuring cup and use an immersion blender) blend the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, sour cream, flour and baking powder.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through, you can test with a toothpick for doneness. The toothpick should come out with a few crumbs of egg on it when done.
Serve and enjoy!
