One night last week we were headed to a local farm that hosts a weekly concert in the summer for families where you can bring a picnic and sit outside as you eat and listen. We had pasta salad and cheese on hand but we needed one other thing to complete our picnic dinner. We had a few eggs in the fridge so we decided to make deviled eggs – nothing says picnic like deviled eggs! Martha Stewart has a whole bunch of awesome deviled egg recipes but based on ingredients we had on hand we made these Old Bay Deviled Eggs. SO GOOD.
…enjoy! Btw, we topped ours with green onions.
I was looking through the May issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine (I hope you’ve read page 4!) and came across a great article on quiche. I love quiche – it’s so filling, you can customize it to your liking with what you put inside, and you can eat it at any meal, at any temperature. Anyway, so the part of the article that intrigued me was using a springform pan to make your quiche instead of a pie plate. Interesting! So that’s how bakeries get that high, straight edge of crust in their quiche. I had to try it immediately and show you how it went.
We had ingredients to make a quiche with ham, peppers, onions, and a little cheese but you fill it how you want – let’s just focus on the crust (do reference Martha’s basic springform pan quiche recipe for measurements, you need more custard to fill the springform crust quiche). I used a pre-made dough from Trader Joe’s that honestly didn’t work out too well for the springform pan. The crust was very crumbly and dry once blind baked and therefore the egg seeped out while baking and we didn’t get as full and fluffy of a quiche as was to be expected. But it still tasted great, and that’s what matters, right? When I make this again I will use a better dough and honestly, we need a better springform pan because I’ve had cheesecakes leak out of this one, too – no good!
Overall, I would recommend trying the springform pan quiche, it creates a bigger quiche full of light fluffy egg custard. I am eating a big piece for lunch today with a little salad on the side. Enjoy!
