Tortilla Quiche

by Meghann on April 7, 2011

Who’s ready to race?!?!

I’m sort of obsessed with the Iron Girl Half Marathon bibs. They make me want to curl up on a beach and watch the sunset with a good book. Maybe that will be my inspiration as I’m huffing my way up hills on Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Major props to the Iron Girl Staff for hosting today’s pick up at the International Mall in Tampa.

It saved me from having to drive all the way to Clearwater on Saturday and I was able to grab all of my O-town friends’ packets on their behalf.

I love when races are so considerate. ๐Ÿ™‚

Who else is racing this weekend? Are you pumped yet?

Packet pick up was followed by Pretzels with mustard.

Some work.

A little more work.

And dinner.

I was on my own for dinner tonight (Derek and his brother are off celebrating his birthday a day early) and decided to have a little fun testing out a new recipe I’ve been meaning to try for a while.

I’ve seen Tortilla Crusted Quiches before, but haven’t made one on my own. I’m sure there’s a legit ‘how to’ recipe out there, but that’s not my style. I basically took the idea and rolled with it.

(only if I had followed a recipe I might have thought to grease the pan before placing the tortilla in it. Umm… if you make this, remember to grease the pan or the tortilla does stick!)

I wanted a veggie-riffic quiche. FInely chopped radishes, corn, asparagus, tomato, and carrot made that possible.

I poured an egg mix consisting of 4 eggs, milk, mozzarella cheese, rosemary, fennel, and salt and pepper on top.

Baked at 375 for 20 minutes.

It was a really light dish. I served half of the quiche with roasted sweet potatoes and ketchup.

The quiche was light and fluffy, I loved how the the tortilla gave it a nice crust. At one point I picked it up and ate it like a slice of pizza.

An Attune bar for dessert.

Ohana Cafe

When heading west (or east!) towards any coast in Florida you will generally find two types of beach towns. The super touristy, built up beaches with lots of crowds, lots of buildings, and lots to do. The quiet, sleepy coastal towns with lots of houses, limited beaches, and plenty of charm. Today I met my more ยป

Change of Routine
