For Quiche-Eaters Everywhere

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:51 PM UTC

For those wishing to compete in the 2 Blowhards “I’m so gay” contest, here is my mother’s recipe for Walter Mondale Memorial Quiche — not that she calls it that. The name alludes to the popular 1984 bumper-sticker message “Mondale is a quiche-eater”: if eating quiche is wimpy, eating a spinach and cottage-cheese quiche is beyond wimpy. (Whether that would be ‘überwimpy’ or ‘unterwimpy’ is a question for the pedants.)

Walter Mondale Memorial Quiche

Bake one 9” pie crust 3 min. at 475o. Lower heat to 350o.

Sprinkle in baked pie crust 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese. Beat 4 eggs, blend in 1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese, 1/3 cup light cream, 1/4 tsp. salt, plus pepper and nutmeg to taste. Fold in 1 package frozen chopped spinach (cooked) and 2 tbsp. chives. Pour into pie crust. In small skillet, melt 1 tbsp. butter. Fry 1 small onion, sliced, until golden. Decorate top of quiche with onion rings and butter.

Bake 45 min. at 350o. Allow to cool somewhat before serving.

(This works with either ‘boil-in-the-bag’ spinach or the kind that you boil in water, as long as the latter is drained. It is even better if you double or triple the Swiss cheese: in this case it will fill two 8” pie crusts. Microwaves well: quiche is supposed to be eaten lukewarm anyway.)

This is the only dish I’ve ever eaten and liked that contains cottage cheese.
