Easy Caprese Quiche


I love Caprese…… fresh tomatoes and basil and mozzarella cheese are so perfect together. So, I make Caprese as an appetizer.  I make Caprese Chicken that is to die for.  But today I made a Caprese quiche.  Eggs so light and fluffy you won’t believe it.  And it’s loaded with fresh Roma tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil.  It’s so easy to make because it makes it own crust.  Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.  I love this recipe and you will too.












Easy Caprese Quiche

5 whole large eggs 

5 large egg whites (or use liquid egg whites)

1 cup half and half or whole milk 

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

½ cup of shredded Provolone or Monterrey Jack 

2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil, packed 

1 teaspoon garlic salt 

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper 

1-2 fresh Roma tomatoes thinly sliced 


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 












Grease a 9 inch pie pan or you can use a 8 inch square dish













Crack 5 whole large eggs into a large mixing bowl. Then add 5 more egg whites only and whisk until blended. By the way, save the yolks for another breakfast. Whisk in the half and half or milk until combined.

Add in the seasonings, cheeses, and basil and continue to whisk until everything is blended. Whisk well.













Pour into a greased 9 inch pie plate or 8 inch square baking pan. Top with thinly sliced tomatoes and extra cheese on top.













Bake at 350 degrees 50-60 minutes or until center is set and no longer jiggly.  












Garnish with additional sprinkle of chopped basil on top if desired.













Slice and serve immediately.













Cover quiche with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. To heat up, cover with foil and bake in oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. 













You can also freeze this if you want to make it ahead of time.  Just thaw and bake. 












 Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.  So easy to make and so good!

Fried Egg and Ham Sandwich














What a delicious way to start your day! This super easy and quick fried egg, cheese and ham sandwich comes together in less than seven minutes making it a great breakfast for any morning!

White bread

Ham steak



Fry the egg

Add two tablespoons of butter to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot and the butter foamy, crack the egg into the pan. 














Cook the eggs until the whites are cooked and it is still somewhat runny in the yolk (or not runny at all if that's what you prefer), and remove the egg from the pan to a plate and set aside. 











Add another pat of butter to the same skillet and add your ham slice. Fry until lightly browned and warmed through. Remove from skillet and set aside with your fried egg.












Next, Spread some butter on one side of each slice of your  bread. Place the slice buttered side down in the same skillet you fried your ham and egg. Fry the one side of the bread until golden brown. 











While in the skillet, add your ham and then top it with your fried egg.  If you want cheese, now is the time to add it.  Next lay your second slice of buttered bread on top of the ham and egg, being careful not to push down on it if you want to keep the yolk runny.

Once the bread is brown on the other side, remove and serve. 














Use good quality bread.  It really does make a difference.

Butter makes the bread brown so nicely and adds fabulous flavor.  You can use salted or unsalted butter.

If you like your eggs runny don’t push down on the sandwich.  It will all come together as everything melts and browns.

Fry the ham slice until a little crispy on the edges, makes it even better!

Got my new shipment from Stoltzfus Meats today.
Wait, have I ever told you about Stoltzfus? If not, it's time I did so you can take advantage of my well known secret. I love this company!


As you know I rarely endorse products and when I do, it's because I am so excited I want to share them with you. I am not the typical blogger that advertises for commission. That's why you will never find all those aggravating pop up ads all over my blog. But when I do find a product or merchant I love, I share that information with you. I do not charge commission and rarely someone might ask me to try something to review but this isn't so often.

So I want to share my love of this company with you. Everything about them is as if we live in another time.... from their homemade meats and sweets and other goodies to the one-of-a-kind customer service they offer. Customer service unlike any you will find anywhere today.

My Mom used to make the best Ham loaf. It was her specialty and everyone loved it. I mean there was nothing else like it. So delicious in fact we could eat it everyday! But it has been the most challenging recipe for me to duplicate over the years. Oh, I come close....I have tried to make it many times but it's not the same.

And then one day, I found the a product called Gene Wenger's Famous Ham Loaf at a local store and decided to try it. OMG. It was just like my Mom's ham loaf. Exactly like it. Not one bit of difference! 
Unfortunately, when I went back for more, they no longer carried it. So I called Mr. Wenger and told him how I loved the ham loaf. He thanked me and then put me in touch with this wonderful Pennsylvania Dutch company called Stoltzfus.



I spoke to Deana who works in their customer service department. Customer service unlike anything you will find today. The old fashioned kind with someone so kind and polite and professional. It was Deana that made me a lifetime customer.


Stoltzfus is where I go when I want quality meat products like sausage, bologna, old fashioned scrapple, home made bacon, fresh ham, baked goods and of course Gene Wenger's Famous Ham Loaf. What is it about this company that I love? Its the way they treat the customers. I feel like I have my own butcher and bakery right at my finger tips.

You will definitely want to check out all their goodies.... And pass on the word to friends and family. High quality food, first class service, great prices. Free shipping with a minimum order and so much more. What more could you ask for?
Stop and visit and say hello to Deana for me!
