Lord Honey, don't try to float this boat--just eat it all up. I've Country-Blinged a traditional quiche, by replacing the pastry crust with a nice hearty loaf of French bread in my savory "Bread Boat Quiche"
Bread Boat Quiche
Jason Smith, FNS southerncountrybling.com
1-large loaf of whole French bread
¼ -cup heavy cream or half&half
1-medium onion, diced
1-cup diced fresh mushrooms
1 ½ -cups diced smoked sausage links
¾ -cup parmesan cheese, grated
2-tsp country bling dust
¼-tsp crushed red pepper
· Preheat oven to 350, line a baking sheet with foil.
· Cut the top off bread, making sure to just barely cutting it off.
· Using your fingers dig out the center of the bread leaving walls of bread about ½ inch thick.
· Save the top and inside of bread for bread crumbs for another recipe.
· In a skillet place the butter and bring to heat on medium, add the onion and mushrooms, cook until tender, add the spinach and cook for 3 mins, take off heat and let cool for 5 mins.
· Spoon onion mix into bottom of bread boat.
· Sprinkle the cubed sausage over onion mix.
· Place the eggs, country bling dust, red pepper flakes and cream in a mixing bowl and whisk together.
· Pour egg mix over sausage, sprinkle the parmesan cheese over top.
· Bake for 35-40 mins or until set, you want it to jiggle a very small amount.
Tip: You can use regular breakfast sausage, ham or cooked chicken.
