This time of year there is zucchini everywhere. This is the perfect change up. We double it for my family. It is perfect for Breakfast, Brunch, or dinner. You can also change it up by adding mushrooms and onions.
NOTE: If you use yellow zucchini the skin is tougher and must bee peeled. And you will want to remove the seeds.
3 cups Zucchini
4 oz Goat Cheese Crumbs
6 oz Cream Cheese
3/4 cup Whipping Cream
1 cfup Shredded Cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut zucchini into bite-size pieces. Layer half of the zucchini in a 9×9 pan. Evenly cover with goat cheese and top with remaining zucchini.
In a mixing bowl cream together cream cheese, whipping cream and shredded cheese until the cream cheese is well incorporated. Add one egg at a time mixing well.
Poor egg mixture over zucchini. Bake for 30-45 minutes. Make sure the quiche is not completely cooked. It should not wiggle when you move the pan and a toothpick come out clean.
Some recipes are product of trial and error others turn out well on the first try. This recipe came about because I had a coupon for free Chorizo. Joseph made me an omelet that was fantastic. Then as we created our weekly meal plan we discussed creating a Mexican Quiche for dinner. We discussed what vegetables we wanted to try with it.
As it was cooking the smell was fantastic. At was a 5 thumbs up recipe. The flavors got even better as we had the leftovers for breakfast.
