    Default Poached quiches an experiment

    On abf in the thread "Some lunch goodies" Shawn posted his photo of
    some poached eggs.
    Then the conversation went on and he said "I have been hard poaching
    eggs, and chilling them for use in wraps,
    salads, etc. It's much easier than trying to peel boiled eggs."

    He also offered "for a different texture, whiz them up before
    poaching"

    Great ideas and I was going to do that with my last two eggs this
    morning then I got to thinking, if I'm going to whiz the eggs why not
    add a few goodies to them as well. And...if I was going to add a few
    goodies as well, might as well try and make some miniature quiches.
    Brilliant. Except I have nothing to use as a crust, well, crust less
    quiches are fine too. If I were a white bread eater I would trim the
    crusts off of a couple of slices of plain ol' white bread and roll
    them thin with a rolling pin, butter both sides and line the cups with
    them, trimming to fit. I'll try that another time.

    So here's what I did.

    Gathered my ingredients together. I have some thinly sliced ham,
    onion, Brie cheese, my last two eggs so this dang well better work, a
    smidgen of mustard to add to the egg mixture and milk. And of course
    some freshly ground salt and pepper.

    I cooked the onion in some butter until it was soft and added the ham
    just long enough to heat it up.

    Mixed up the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper.

    Placed some ham and onion mixture into the buttered poaching cups and
    topped with a square of Brie cheese.

    Added the egg mixture

    Here is where I started holding my breath

    Gently started transferring the filled cups to the hot water. On the
    way to the pan I thought dang these are heavy, I hope they don't sink
    to the bottom of the pot and fill with water. Luckily I had just
    enough water. They did touch bottom but did not fill with water. I
    really don't think they would have floated.

    Peeking through the lid they are puffing up just fine.

    Here's the perfect poached quiche plated. The other one I kinda ruined
    appearance wise when I checked for doneness.

    I broke open the not so perfect looking one to show the melted cheese
    inside. mmmmm

    I think these would be so great on a brunch or luncheon plate.

    This seems more like a poached omelette than a poached quiche. I hope
    it tasted good.

    The crust of a quiche is an integral part of the quiche to me.

    Crustless quiche (or for that matter, anything that belongs in a pie crust
    and isn't) is an oxymoron.

    Remember those "miracle" or "magic" quiches and pies that Bisquick used to
    extoll over? There were few things more disgusting. The crap never did
    really form a crust, but more of a baked sludge *near* the bottom, but not
    really on the bottom.

    Then get your butt over here and we'll quiche it out together!

    I bet you make wonderful quiches, but I'd still have to have the crust. :-)

    Nothing would make me happier.

    >I bet you make wonderful quiches, but I'd still have to have the crust. :-)


    I do make a crust when I make "real" quiches. This was just an idea
    that grew from Shawn's post on abf.
    Just another adventure in foodome or shall I say fooddumb. ;-)

    That would be a lot of fun, Koko. Maybe someday we can do it. Actually, a
    quiche-a-thon might make an interesting part of a cook-in. I've made a lot
    of different kinds of quiche, but my all time favorite is Quiche Lorraine.

    I enjoy your adventurous nature and experimentation with food. I used to
    do more of it years ago. David has such a limited palate that all the
    experiments would either end up in me or in the garbage. :-(

    > Just another adventure in foodome or shall I say fooddumb. ;-)


    No, not dumb at all. How else would we discover new an different ways of
    cooking and developing recipes?
