Here’s a little known fact about me and my life as a food blogger. I cook in clusters.
There are days when I make three dishes at the same time to maximize my time in the kitchen and recipe test. As a food blogger who also has a full-time job, my kitchen time is limited and I can’t spend my days just cooking the day away in my kitchen (as much as I’d like to). So when I have an open day, usually on the weekends, I cook in batches often having all four stove-top burners going at once and something baking in the oven.
Todays Butternut Squash and Feta Cheese Quiche recipe is the product of one of my batch-cooking days. I was limited on time but knew I wanted to test this recipe out so I cooked the main meal I was preparing and while it was finishing the oven I prepped and finished this Butternut Squash and Feta Cheese Quiche recipe. It was one of my “on a whim” recipes that I figured I’d try and see if it worked out.
The Butternut Squash and Feta Cheese Quiche recipe begins with a pie crust. I like to keep things simple and use store-bought crust but you could also begin with your favorite homemade crust recipe. I then filled the crust with rough-cut butternut squash, fresh feta cheese and lightly whisked eggs and milk.
The ingredients are simple and fuss free but the taste is far from simple.
- 1 pie crust
- 1 1/2 cups of cubed butternut squash
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 ounces of crumbed feta cheese
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare pie crust.
- Place cubed butternut squash in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 3-5 minutes to slightly soften. Remove butternut squash from microwave and fill prepared pie crust. Top squash with crumbled feta cheese. Whisk eggs and milk in bowl and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over squash and cheese and bake in oven for 30 minutes.
This Butternut Squash and Feta Cheese recipe would be delicious for Thanksgiving morning or a Christmas brunch. It’s quick and easy to prepare and fills your mouth with the tastes of Fall.
Serve the quiche with some fresh fruit and a nice cup of coffee and you have the perfect breakfast or brunch. Enjoy!
