Recipe: Pepper Zucchini Quiche

Yes, people, yes; another quiche recipe to try. They are just the perfect appetizer, snack, dinner, or supper for when easy is needed. Today, it's going to be about vegetables. 

Zucchini is big here in Ohio. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it grows so easy. However, it wasn't big back in my home town. I never even knew the amount of stuff zucchini could go into or be used for until I moved to Ohio. Many people love this vegetable up here and put it in everything. Hence, today's recipe.

I remember the first, and last, time I tried Zucchini bread. It was at work and we had a table in work that was designated the "sharing table" and any food on this table was for everyone. Most of the time it was chips, cookies, candy, fruit and labeled who brought it and the date. However, this Monday it was this bread. I trusted the person who made it and this particular person was an amazing cook. I didn't fully read what it was as soon as I saw her name because my first thought was, "Aww, yeah! She cooked!" I cut myself a small slice of it, grabbed my coffee, and off to my desk I went. I took my first bite and chew, che, ch... bleh.. WTH is this? I let it fall out of my mouth as if I just poisoned myself. I wiped off my tongue and poured hot coffee down my throat to kill whatever I just ate. I threw away the item, then went back to the break room to find out what this autrocity was that I inflicted on myself. The label read Zucchini Bread.

Some items needed are Zucchini, pie pastries, bell peppers, butter, eggs, salt, pepper, half and half.

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Grease mini muffin pans.

Cut 3 inch rounds from 2-15 ounce packages refrigerated pie pastries with a biscuit cutter, or knife. Press crusts into greased muffin pans.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter into a skillet over medium heat.

Add 1 minced red pepper and I minced Zucchini. Stir occasionally, until tender, for about 10 minutes.

Combine 3 eggs, 1 1/2 cups half and half, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and a pinch of pepper in a bowl and  beat with fork until mixed well.

Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of cooked vegetable mixture into each crust and top with egg mixture.

Bake quiches for 12 minutes, until set. Let stand for a few minutes, then remove from pan.
