Breakfast quiche basics & smack you mamma mac & cheese  
6 eggs (5 eggs if more veggies)
2 cups of shredded cheese
salt & pepper
3/4 cup milk
meat or veggies
pie shell (can be done in 9" Pamed pan w/no crust)

While the pie shell is par-baking in the oven, beat eggs, milk, salt & pepper together thoroughly. Add cheese and mix. Pour the milk-egg mixture into the pie crust. Place meat & veggies on top - do not mix. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Ovens vary, so check quiche at about 30 minutes. Quiche should be golden brown on top & very puffy-(don't worry, it will settle as it cools). Let Quiche stand for about 10 minutes before cutting & serving. Or, cool completely, wrap & refrigerate for up to 10 days. This quiche re-heats very well in the microwave.

Princess Thompson’s Smack Yo Mamma Mac and Cheese


* 2 cups of shredded mild cheddar
* 2 cups of shredded Colby jack blend
* 1 cup of medium cheddar
* 2 cups of shredded Velveeta or small box
* 1 box of elbow macaroni or noodle of choice (try cellentani or cavatappi — my kids love the fun shapes)
* 4 eggs
* 3 cups of whole milk
* 1 cup of heavy cream
* 1/2 a stick of butter
* Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation (This recipe is for a 13 x 9 pan at least 3 to 4 inches deep):

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray pan with non stick spray.
2. Boil noodles as per directions on box until just undercooked. Quick rinse, shake, drain and put to the side.
3. Mix eggs, milk, cream and salt and pepper, whisk until well blended. Pour 1/2 of milk mixture in bottom of the pan. Add a layer of noodles, then add salt and pepper. Take shredded cheese and combine in a bowl, give a quick toss. Top noodles with cheese, mix cheese up a little with noodles and repeat layers. If using box Velveeta, slice pieces over shredded mixture. (Don’t forget salt and pepper on each layer.)
4. When you get to top, the last of cheese heavy on top. Take the rest of milk mixture and pour the remaining over the noodles and cheese. Poke holes so milk mixture can get all the way through. Melt butter and pour over mixture. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
5. Cover tightly with foil. Bake in oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and cook 5-10 minutes more until golden. Let stand for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. Always even better the next day.
