Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche?
Ah, the good old fashioned egg. One of the worlds oldest foods. Historically, domesticated hens have been in existence since 600 B.C., providing us one of the most simplistically nutritional, economical and versatile foods that a chef can be blessed with. Perfection in its fragile but natural external packaging, what exists inside the shell is what many cooks believe is the “cement that holds the castle of cuisine together“. Because of their ability to bind, leaven, thicken, emulsify, and clarify; there are over 685 different ways of preparing the egg. From a nutritional standpoint, eggs contain the highest quality food protein known and with its economical availability combined with how they satisfy the taste buds, they are a sure-fired winner . If you are an egg lover, then you already know that a boiled egg in the morning is a delicious start to the day. One of my favorite meals to create consists of six-eggs blended with a splash of milk (or cream), cubed ham, mushrooms and Parmesans cheese. Poured into a thawed deep-dish pie crust and baked on a cookie or broiler sheet at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Viola! Easy, elegant quiche! Ever heard the old saying “Real men don’t eat quiche”? Well, I’m not sure who came up with that one because I haven’t met one yet!
