I am not going to lie, this is not the best picture ever. It was taken the following day after making it when Sister and I were savoring the last two pieces for lunch. I have been very busy packing stuff up and bringing it to storage. That is the best thing we ever did. De-clutter and get everything out of here. It now feels big and open like when we moved in 16 years ago.
The storage place is pretty interesting. People put all sorts of random goodness in there. I have seen some cars come out to play on the warmest day of January that we just had (51 degrees!) and a few interesting characters. Sister has some crazy storage unit stories, but those are her stories and I am not going to tell them. I get it though. You could throw a kick ass party in a storage unit.
Anyway with all the running back and forth to storage, I hadn’t really planned too well on what to feed the family. I am running on coffee nowadays, but can’t expect the kids to. I always wrestle with “Should I just hit the drive thru or make something at home?” Well the drive thru sucks. I can’t stand spending the money on crap food and feeling like crap the next day. Only in severe times of desperation where we are pressed on time or out somewhere do I do the fast food thing. But hardly ever.
One day at work we were talking about frittatas and we almost made one except we ran out of time. But once something gets in my mind I can’t shake it. So I bought what I think would go good in one last time I was shopping. I always grab eggs when I am at the store because my Grandma Elvira who survived the Depression said nothing made her feel more rich than having 2 dozen eggs in the house.When the shit hits the fan, there are always eggs. So here’s where I thought to make a hearty egg inspired quick dinner. I also learned frittata is something you fry first and then finish off by baking. I always thought it was just an open faced omelette. Oops! Well I didn’t feel like doing that so I came up with my own way. I guess you could call it a crustless quiche.
Whatever you call it, it was really good. Made with Wallace Farms Porketta from my dear friend Lisa’s family meat business, it was full of flavor and hit the spot. I think Porketta is my favorite product they sell. I use it in meatballs, meatloaf, stuffed mushrooms, and soups. They ship all over and I would highly recommend trying it.
It’s a darn good thing I had plenty of good staples on hand to pull this off. Here’s what I had:
- 1 lb Wallace Farms Porketta (or other bulk breakfast sausage)
- 10 eggs
- 2 T sour cream
- 1 8 oz package mushrooms
- 1 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 4 oz fresh spinach leaves
- 1 tsp finely chopped garlic (fresh or jar is fine. I used the jar.)
- 1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 C shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- salt & pepper
- Lightly butter or spray a 9x13 glass baking dish to prevent sticking.
- Clean and slice the mushrooms.
- Drain and slice the tomatoes.
- In a large bowl, scramble the eggs with the sour cream. Add about 1/2 tsp of salt & pepper. More or less to your taste. Set aside.
- Start by browning the Porketta in little chunks. Don't break it up too finely. Make sure it is no longer raw. Drain the grease and set the Porketta aside.
- In the same pan, saute the onion and garlic a few minutes until it is translucent. Set aside.
- Then add the mushrooms and saute them until they are no longer raw.
- Then start layering the ingredients starting with the tomatoes. Sprinkle the tomatoes with the Italian seasoning.
- Add the Parmesan cheese.
- Add the Porketta layer.
- Add the mushrooms.
- Add the onions and garlic.
- Add the mozzarella cheese.
- Add the spinach.
- Carefully pour the egg mixture over all of that.
- Try to submerge the spinach under the egg as best as you can.
- Bake at 350 about 40 mins. or until thermometer says 165 and it is set in the center.
Everyone said it was tasty more than once. That makes a mama happy. The next day Sister was helping me run stuff up to storage and we debated going out to lunch. We both decided to save our money and eat the leftovers of Quiche Supreme. I love it when we agree to be practical! LOL!!
Well try it and let me know if you liked it. It’s one of those things where you can add whatever you like or whatever you have on hand. Perfect for when you don’t know what else to do!
Gotta run…..Celebrating my beautiful sister-n-law’s birthday today. I just love that I finally have a little sister! Have a great Sunday!
