Who loves you more than your mom? No one! Well, maybe your dad. Maybe not more, but just as much. Either way, you are loved! Love is a two way street. Someone loves you. You love them back.
Cooking for someone you love is a great way to love them back.
Love is an action word, you know. Get it in action with this recipe you can make for your mom for Mother’s Day! Great way to “love” her for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner!
Tomato Basil Quiche.
It is super easy, delicious and gluten free, if you need it to be.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crack some eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk well.
Add cream and milk,
salt, pepper and a little shredded parmesan cheese.
Next, slice a few cherry tomatoes in half and add to the egg mixture.
Then, stack a few leaves of basil together, roll up tightly and slice into ribbons. This is a technique called, chiffonade (shif-uh-nod). Say that outloud three times. Congratulations, now you speak French.
Add the basil to the egg mixture and mix well. Pour mixture into a baking dish.
Whisk mixture around to make sure tomatoes and basil are evenly distributed.
This is mozzarella cheese. Fresh mozzarella cheese. You can use shredded but try to find fresh. Fresh mozz is sold in containers with water. It is creamer and tastier than shredded. If your local grocery store doesn’t have it, have your mom ask the manager to try and get it. I have found that most grocery stores, especially small town grocery stores like Hill’s Grocery-Anahauc, TX, are happy to try a product.
Whether you use fresh or shredded, add some to the quiche. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and set (which means the egg mixture doesn’t jiggle when you gently shake the dish).
Cut into squares and serve to your mom. Give her a hug and tell her thank you for all she does for you. You are loved!
