Mini Quiche and a Giveaway!

****************GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!********************** 
What? Alisa's having a giveaway? Yup. Buckle up folks. It's my first giveaway, so I don't know how these things work. 
What's that? You just give things away to people? Oh, yeah, I can do that.  
So I got this sweet package of goodies from Land O'Lakes and MyBlogSpark, and they suggested I head over to for some recipe ideas.  I usually find my recipes on Pinterest or the Food Network website because they have so many ideas.  But has some really great easy, fast, fresh recipes.  I'll definitely go back next time I'm browsing for an idea.  I even found a buttercream frosting recipe I might be trying soon.  Nom.

This time I wanted to make a recipe using the Land O'Lakes eggs that I make a lot, and tweak it a little with some tips I found on this recipe:

I would usually use my own pie crust that I grew up with, but I was STARTVING.  So I took their advice and used a store-bought pie crust and it was EASY.  So easy. I used a cup to cut the circles out. They were the perfect size for the mini muffin tin that they sent me.

I tossed those crusts in the oven at 375 to bake while I mixed up the innards.

2 eggs and 1/2 cup of plain yogurt (instead of the milk they suggest), seasoned with salt and pepper. 

When the pie crusts came out I filled them with tiny broccoli chunks and shredded cheese (my favorite quiche filling EVER).
Then I filled the cups with my egg mixture and popped them in the oven!
All in all they probably took me 25-30 minutes start to finish.  And I fried up some bacon while I waited for them to cook.  

Love the store-bought crust idea.  If you've never tried it, I suggest giving it a shot.  It has a unique taste that I fell in love with camping with my dad.  He would make cherry pies in the dutch oven with those pie crusts and some canned cherries.  Something about the memories made those simple pies my absolute favorite.  The dutch oven flavor doesn't hurt either... mmmm.

 So here's the deal- Leave a comment below before midnight on Tuesday night telling me what recipe from you would like to try. I'll use a random number generator (exciting!) and pick one of the comments.  If there's only one comment, you win.

What do I win? Oh yeah... You win the same thing they sent me! This egg-celent package of goodies.

On another note, my friend Amber had her baby! awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
