Sometimes when a snow storm is expected, it is a welcomed chance to stay home and relax. And sometimes, you reach your cap of snow days and two hour delays, and cabin fever sets in.
Well, I had a little of both this past Tuesday with the bombogenesis that never was — at least here in the Hudson Valley. All in we received about 4 inches of the white stuff, but in preparation, I bought all kinds of food with only the best intentions in mind.
Turns out though, even with the best intentions I’m still a short order cook around here. No worries. I still made a couple recipes that I would love to share with all of you.
For starters, since I’ve cleaned off our elliptical, I thought it might be a good idea to start using it, and get better about eating a healthy breakfast. So I decided to make my own Granola.
Secondly, I wanted to make something that is hearty, yet fast and easy during the weekday morning frenzy. Quiches are my go-to. I make them all the time and have them on hand in the freezer. They go straight from freezer to oven, and are ready in about 45 minutes.
But I needed something quicker. Grab and go; less time. And the idea of Quiche Poppers came to my mind. These took a little time to make on the front end, but honestly since I had the time and I love the prep, it’s all good in an hour’s work.
With the help of prepared pie crust and a cookie cutter, these Quiche Poppers turned out great. And so cute. Perfect to pull out of the freezer and heat in the oven for 10 minutes. A hearty and savory breakfast that is quick on time, and long on taste! Click here for the recipe.
