My Mom and I exchange recipes quite often. Sometimes, it’s something that we saw, thought it looked yummy, and passed it along to the other person to make first to see if it’s any good. This is one of those recipes. The verdict: It’s good.
This is great to do if you have a loaf of bread that’s starting to get a little stale and you can’t use it for sandwiches.
- 1 can salmon
- 8-9 slices of bread (You can trim the crusts off. I decided it wasn’t worth my time.)
- 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp. dill weed
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
You can also add some chili powder if you want a little kick.
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
- Drain and flake salmon. Set aside.
- Cut bread slices diagonally to make triangular pieces. Arrange them in a spiral in a greased 9-inch pie dish to cover the bottom of the dish. Arrange remaining triangles around the edge to form a crown (or be lazy and do it the way I did…). Trim off the parts that stick too far up over the edge.
- Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over the bread at the bottom of the pie dish.
- Whisk eggs, milk, dill, salt and pepper.
- Stir in salmon, green onions, and remaining 1 cup of cheese. Spoon evenly into pie dish.
- Bake 40 minutes or until the center is set.
It turns out really pretty. You can even sprinkle some green onions on the top after baking for some extra color. It’s really filling, so it actually lasted Stephen and I three meals. Or maybe two and a half.
If you like quiche, I would definitely recommend trying this!
