a long weekend calls for a decadent brunch. when i'm pressed for time, greek yogurt with granola is my standby. but when i have the luxury of spending an hour or two in the kitchen, i like to whip up something extra special to savor alongside a strong cup of coffee.
swiss chard and heirloom tomato quiche adapted from here
1 frozen 9-inch pie crust (i used whole foods whole wheat)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch swiss chard, stems removed and diced
1 yellow onion, diced
3 large eggs
3/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup grated goat cheddar
3 small heirloom tomatoes, sliced
salt and pepper
preheat oven to 350f. heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. add the onion and swiss chard and cook for about 4-5 minutes. in a medium bowl, mix eggs with half-and-half, salt, and pepper. add the cheddar and onion and chard mixture to the eggs. pour the mixture into the pie crust, top with sliced tomatoes and bake until set (about 45 minutes).
