Instructions
  1. In a large cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and sauté until slightly translucent. Add potatoes. Salt and Pepper.
  2. Continue to cook until potatoes have browned and onions have caramelized. Stir constantly with wooden spatula. About 10 minutes. Once finished, remove from heat. Drain on paper towel.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the prepared pastry shells on a baking sheet. We used the VIP pastry shells found in the freezer case at the local grocery store.
  4. Chop the broccoli and mozzarella and put equal amounts into each pastry shell.
  5. Using a large glass bowl, crack the duck eggs and whisk with half n half and Cajun seasoning until well blended. Pour evenly into pastry shells. Press down gently with a fork to remove any air bubbles.
  6. Bake in the oven until middle of quiches are set. Takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before trying to take the quiches out of their foil pans to serve.
  8. Plate a single quiche and top with the lovely shoestring hash browns.
Recipe Notes

Use what you have on hand...and feel free to make this with any style of quiche that you like. Heck, add bacon if you so desire. Make this one yours!

Salads in a Jar

Good morning y’all!  Have you ever tried Salads in a Jar? If you have not, you really should.  They are quite the popular thing around our house.  When you are pressed for time or just plain busy (as everyone seems to be these days) but you are trying to be good and prepare healthy lunches for the week, these ideas for Salads in a Jar are just what you need. They are also super delicious and convenient to grab from the fridge during the morning rush out the door. The combinations of ingredients are only limited by your imagination. Here are a couple that our family likes to get you started.

Honey Mustard Turkey Pasta Salad:

  • Honey Mustard Dressing
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese-cubed
  • Roasted Turkey Breast-cubed
  • Sunflower seeds (unsalted)
  • Green grapes-cut in half
  • Petite green peas- blanched
  • Gemelli pasta (or your preferred pasta shape)

Just make an assembly line with the mason jars and begin with the salad dressing, followed by the proteins, then ending with veggies.

Try to make sure that all of your ingredients are made to be bite size and small enough to fit into the jar. Put as much or as little of any of the ingredients as you wish.

Green Garden Salad:

  • French Dressing
  • Marinated feta cheese
  • Broccoli florets
  • Carrots- thinly sliced
  • Cucumber- diced
  • Compari tomatoes- quartered
  • Red radishes- thinly sliced
  • Yellow grape tomatoes- sliced

Remember to begin with the dressings, then the proteins, and end with the lettuce on top before you tighten on those lids.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can even get the kiddos involved in making and creating their own nutritious Salads in a Jar for their lunches! Make plenty ahead of time and refrigerate for up to 5-7 days…if they last that long!
