Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

crustless pizza quiche

over the years i have tried many gooseberry patch recipes.  every one seems to be a great reliable recipe. this one is from the 101 cozy casseroles spiral cookbook, and was offered as an online sample for my e-reader.  it was easy and quite tasty.  i changed a few ingredients and the quiche baked as suggested.

to make the recipe:  use 1/2 cup of turkey pepperoni and one 8 ounce can of sliced mushrooms, drained, and place in a 9 inch ceramic pie plate that has been sprayed with Pam.  next, in a bowl, whisk together 3 eggs and 2 egg whites egg beaters, 3/4 cup of skim milk, and 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano, and some fresh basil to taste.  pour over the pepperoni and mushrooms in the baking dish.  sliced green pepper and onion could be also added for additional flavor.

top with 8 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese.  i topped with some fresh basil from my garden as a garnish.  bake uncovered in a 400 degree oven for at least 30 minutes until golden and heated through. 

i usually insert a knife into the quiche to make certain the center is not runny prior to serving.  if still soft, bake another 5 to7 minutes until done.

served with a side salad or soup, this is a wonderful entree for lunch or dinner.
