Tired Mom equals Quick Dinner!
Some nights (more than I care to admit) I just don’t feel like cooking a big dinner. Do you guys ever have those night? If not please share your energy with this chic!
I typically feel like this on days when I’m busy with edits on the blog/YouTube or on long homeschooling days. I really wish I had a magic dinner fairly that would come to my rescue…but I have yet to meet her.
If you see her, could you put in a good word for me and tell her the visit to my kitchen is LONG overdue!
This simple egg dish is one of those recipes that helps me in her absence. It is super quick and easy enough that you can get the kids involved for some extra family time.
My little guy loves to help me cook in the kitchen and he is the “food critic” of our house as well. He always enjoys this recipe and gives it a big thumbs up.
Which is awesome because while he is quick to offer praise, he can also become a miniature Gordon Ramsey (minus the crude mouth) in a flash if the dish is not to his liking. Maybe a bit to much like his momma, oops!
A Simple Dish
Don’t let the title of this dish fool you into thinking it could get complicated as you can see from the picture the “Salami Crusted” part just comes from a whim I got one night to line my pie plate with the salami.
This so-called “brilliant whim” may or may not have stemmed from the fact that I was tired and too lazy to chop the salami up for the filling. Yes, I do get that lazy some nights, no shame in my game!
This recipe is so simple that you could follow the basic steps then just add any flavorings that your family likes. My husband and I also like to use the large round pepperoni for the crust and add our favorite pizza veggies then top each slice with a little of “no sugar added” pizza sauce.
Not only can you change the flavors in this dish it is really easy to multiple the amounts to feed a crowd or you could do single servings in a muffin tin. I like to keep the singles made ahead in the fridge for our busy home school group days.
Though I often make this type dish for my simple dinner nights, it would, of course, be wonderful at any breakfast table as well as a great low carb brunch option. So there you have it. My lazy, I mean my “brilliant” and easy Salami Crusted Quiche. Not fancy but oh so good and worth a try.

- Once all has been incorporated into the eggs slowly pour them over the layered salami crust. .
