Tasty Thursday #2




It's Thursday...which means time to share another recipe! This is my second week participating. (From here on, I will simply include that number in the title).

I noticed on some blogs that there is a picture of the dish posted along with the recipe. I thought of that last night as I was cooking and intended to grab the camera when it came out of the oven, but I totally forgot. Maybe one day I'll actually remember to do that.

I discovered this recipe way back when we were doing low-carb eating. It is low carb, but there's LOTS of cheese, so my dessert has to be a dose of metamucil! ;0) It is verrrrry yummy!

EDIT - I just learned the importance of re-reading what I type before I post it! Thanks to my Dad for bringing this to my attention! The metamucil mentioned above is NOT what I find yummy - but the recipe that follows!!! I'm such a goof sometimes! Ok, I'll be honest - MOST of the time!!

Deep Dish Pizza Quiche

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 eggs
1/3 c. half & half
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. chives
1/2 - 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 - 1 tsp. minced garlic
2 c. Pizza (Italian) blend shredded cheese
1/2 c. Pizza sauce
pizza toppings of your choice
1/4 - 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese

Beat cream cheese and eggs together. (I just use a wire whisk). Add half & half, Parmesan cheese, chives, Italian seasoning and garlic.
Place pizza cheese into a greased 9" baking dish (pie plate). Pour egg mixture over cheese. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Remove. Spread pizza sauce on top. Top with mozzarella cheese and toppings of your choice. (I use chopped pepperoni and black olives.) Bake an additional 10 minutes.

My family loves this! We like ours a little more seasoned, so I use a little more of the Italian seasoning and garlic. Go with the smaller amount if you like the seasonings to be on the lighter side. And I just add the cheese to the top until I think it's enough, so that measurement is really just a guess.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. There are bound to be ingredient conflicts with me being English and most of my readers being American. Any time you don't understand anything just shout and I will explain for everyone. Others are probably wondering too but not asking.
