Tomato, Goat Cheese and Walla Walla Onion Bruschetta

IMG_0097

Here’s my idea of fast food.  This meal comes together in under 2 minutes – the time it takes to toast your baguette slices.  I’ve purposely left the bruschetta topping simple so that the splendid flavor of summer ripe tomatoes may shine.  As much as I love basil, I was looking for a more delicate bite.  If you’re not keen on raw onions, by all means, leave them out.  The tomato and goat cheese combo alone is completely satisfying. Tomato, Chèvre and Walla Walla Onion Bruschetta Print Serves: 4 Ingredients

Mini Crustless Quiches

I know you’ve seen these.  Who hasn’t?  And every time I do I’m sure I remark “what a good idea,” and then never make them.  So I finally made them because everything I needed could be put into my FTY basket. You can prepare these the night before and rewarm them in the morning or have them cold.  They’re an obvious choice for breakfast, but would also make a nice lunch with a side salad. Another thought – put a couple between toast for a breakfast sandwich.
