Lobster Quiche

I find that the most complicated part of making a quiche is the pie crust, but once you’ve got that squared away, it’s only a matter of throwing your favorite ingredients into the pie shell with a couple of eggs and some milk or cream.  Easy Peasy.

We also have WONDERFUL neighbors that keep us plied with fresh lobsters during the summer months.  We definitely hit the lobster jackpot with them!  But what to do with the leftover lobster meat?  Generally it would be hard to believe that there is any leftover lobster meat, but when your gifted a dozen kicking lobsters, straight out of the Atlantic, your bound to have leftovers, and towards the end of a bountiful lobster summer you’ll start getting creative.  Lobster quiche with a sharp cheddar cheese has become a family favorite this summer, but I’m also looking forward to recreating it during the winter months out of the frozen lobster meat we’ve been stockpiling in the freezer.  One of these days I’ll have to share my favorite lobster roll recipe… one of these days…
