Gardener's Revenge Quiche - Recipe

This crustless quiche could, of course, be made with spinach or chard in place of edible weeds, but then it would need a different name!

Gardener's Revenge Quiche Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Wash greens well, and steam, boil or microwave (in a covered container) until completely wilted - there will be only a small fraction of the original volume. Squeeze dry, chop and set aside.
  • In a heavy skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Crumble and set aside. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat, add the onions and cook until soft.
  • In a small bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add salt and curry powder (if using) and stir in milk.
  • Scatter onions and bacon in baking dish. Add chopped greens then pour egg mixture over. Place in heated oven, preferably on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any spills, and bake until edges are firm and center is almost firm, 30 -40 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let stand at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm, room temperature or cold.
