The first recipe comes to me by word of mouth (don’t all the best recipes come that way?) from the great folks at my CSA pick-up site. The taste is really similar to spanakopita, and swiss chard could definitely substitute for spinach in your favorite recipe. This is a lighter adaptation that still satisfies your cheesy veggie craving. (I had seconds, and thirds, and…) It has three simple steps.
1. Saute chard.
2. Place in baking dish, crack 1 egg over top and sprinkle with feta cheese. Bake on 375 for 10-15 minutes.
3. Mix chard, cheese, and runny yolk.
The second recipe is photo-less, and adapted from this Paleo-friendly recipe over on the Meaningful Eats blog. I used a plain old frozen pie crust for my quiche, and added bacon. I fried up about 6 strips, and saved the grease (!) to use instead of the two tablespoons ghee/butter. The reason I don’t have a picture is that there were no leftovers; this was another very popular recipe!
