Finally I can safely say that it almost seems like Spring is here to stay and I tentatively say that with the utmost in confidence, I think. This time of year is exciting for me because it marks the beginning of my foraging forays. You might remember mushroomlandia? Well mushroomlandia is also home of berries, nettles, ferns and greens of all kinds. Oh and before I forget go and check out my mini guest post at BlackStar Gourmet.
One of the easiest and most common greens to find is your garden variety pest, the dandelion. Dandelion greens are quite tasty if you can tolerate their tangy bitterness. I like them with sauteed onions and lardons of bacon.
Man cannot live on bitter greens alone no man needs quiche. What do you do when you eat eggs like I do and you seem to have a never ending supply of those eggs and they are organic and cage free, for the most part? You make quiche, yup quiche is exactly what you do because real men do eat quiche.
Two types of quiche were made on this go around both had asiago, parmesean and fontina cheeses. An asparagus and garlic chicken sausage quiche was first up.
Ham, spinach and mushrooms rounded out this tasty egginess.
Varietal meals would not be complete without popovers and raspberry butter, sure everyone can have strawberry butter but who gets to have raspberry butter?
Hot eggy popovers with melty, melty sweet and tart raspberry butter. Bring it on Spring I think I am ready!
Time to start voting on The MarxFoods dried morel throwdown, I made trout.
