I like to watch the Today Show in the morning. Most of the time it either makes me depressed or scared about some outbreak or that we’re all in debt. But, if you wait around for the later hours of programming, they cook!
They also do fashion stories, live music, and more cooking. My favorite! It’s the ‘happy hour’ of the news. My kind of news.
Anyway, so one day Martha Stewart was on and she made these little egg filled baguettes. Genius!
I had to try it for myself.
Even Leland (who needs a haircut) wanted to get in on the action…or just for us to ‘drop’ some pepperonis.
Let me just tell you, these were so good! There was no fuss about having to make a crust for your quiche. You could just quickly whip up the eggs and throw in some veggies.
Easy peasy, and so delicious.
I picked up these mini baguettes that were perfect for single serving quiches, but the recipe works great with whatever size bread loaf you have.
You get all the great nutrition from the eggs, veggies, meat, and bread! A full package meal.
And have a great weekend!
