THURSDAY NITE FOOTBALL
I am gonna have a tailgate party in my kitchen tonight. The Giants battle the Patriots tonight. Have you made your picks? I think the game win be close, the Patriots will win by a slight margin. Fall and football say quiche. In celebration of Thursday Nite Football, I am making a crustless quiche.
SMOKED SALMON FOOTBALL QUICHE
18 crumbled butter crackers, 2 1/2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup finely chopped asparagus, 1/2 cup chopped carrots, 8 large eggs, 1 1/2 cups smoked salmon, 3 tablespoons sour cream, 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion tops, 3 tablespoons drained capers, 1 1/2 tablespoon cayenne.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Crumble crackers into a bowl, add cheeses, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, mix well, and set aside. In a bowl, beat eggs well, set aside. Chop asparagus and carrots into a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of chicken broth, put in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. Remove from microwave and set aside. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Reserve 1/2 cup of the salmon, set aside. You are going to evenly divide the ingredients into 12-muffin tins. Spoon the asparagus into the muffin tin, top with the cracker and cheese mixture, pour in the eggs. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven turn the muffins out of the pan. Evenly top each muffin with the reserved salmon, green onions, capers, sour cream, and cayenne.
