Veggie Crescent Pizza

Everyone loves pizza, right? This “pizza” is a little different because it’s made with refrigerated crescent rolls for the crust. And instead of a tomato-based pizza sauce, this has a cool and creamy Ranch-flavored filling. It’s a cold-style pizza (the crust is the only thing that’s baked), with toppings of fresh veggies and cheddar cheese that go over the filling, making this a great appetizer or snack for the warm weather seasons!

Crustless Broccoli Quiche

When I make quiche, it’s usually on the weekends, because I don’t have time to make it for breakfast during the week. I suppose I could make quiche for dinner every now and then, which isn’t a bad idea! This quiche would be great for dinner because it has lots of broccoli and Swiss cheese in it, so you get your veggies and your protein. If you’re not that crazy about Swiss cheese, you could use Cheddar cheese instead. There are also mushrooms and onions in this quiche, which make it a wonderful cheesy blend of veggies! 🙂

Spinach-Mushroom Quiche

I am a big fan of quiche, and it’s been awhile since I made one, so it was definitely time to bake one up! And the nice thing about this recipe is that it makes TWO quiche, so you can serve one right away and save one in the freezer for later! This is a veggie quiche, with spinach, mushrooms, and some chopped onion, along with eggs, Swiss cheese, sour cream, and Half & Half to give it a wonderful taste and texture. This is also made with deep dish frozen pie crust shells, which makes it a little easier and quicker to put together!
