You know all those 5 minute-mug- microwave-cakes are all the 'thing' now. I started making versions a couple of years ago, including chocolate cake and cornbread.
|Ready to Microwave with Cheezits top/bottom|
|Plated after microwaving.|
Most of the typical recipes call for a mug, but I like to use a bowl, preferably straight sided, to make a serving for two, which I just split in two.
My Microwave Quiche
For this recipe I used "cheezits" for the base.
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup shredded cheese
1 cup loose packed shredded greens of choice or cooked, drained and chopped spinach
A grind or two of black pepper, just light sprinkle of salt (most cheeses have a lot of salt)
"Base" of crackers or a piece of toast cut to fit the bowl
Optional: Two pieces of crisp bacon, chopped up
Optional: small sliced pepper or other vegetable (in season gently cooked asparagus would be great) - approximately 1/4 cup
--Grease a 2 cup microwave safe bowl.
--Beat eggs until frothy, add milk and stir well. Add cheese and greens, stirring well, then add bacon (if using), pepper and S&P. Stir.
--Pour into bowl and top with "base".
--Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Your microwave may be slightly different in power. A toothpick inserted should come out clean.
--Cover with a plate and upend - the quiche should slide out easily if you greased the bowl well.
--Serve and enjoy with fruit as a side.
