Bean and Bacon Soup

When I was little this was the soup I always wanted when I did not feel good. I had a sick little one this morning so it seems to fitting that this soup was on my menu. I have made several recipes of this soup, but I never found one I really like. So I played around this morning and the soup was a HIT. I think this will be our new Bean and Bacon soup recipe



Michelle's Bean and Bacon Soup
Serves:8-10

1 onion chopped
1 quart chicken broth
1 quart whole tomatoes, pureed
24 oz cooked northern beans, rinsed
2 carrots minced (I shredded mine in the food processor)
1 pkg bacon cooked and chopped into ½ inch pieces
Salt, pepper, garlic to taste

Combine and simmer for 30 minutes or until the carrots are soft.

Michelle's Simple Mini Qiche

On today's menu was quiche for breakfast. We all slept in due to one of the little ones not feeling well.  So instead of a normal quiche I made the mini crust less variety.

The recipe is VERY simple

Michelle's Simple Mini Quiche
Serves: 18

1 dozen eggs
1 onion chopped
1 cup cheese
1/2 cup milk
2 TBSP butter
salt and pepper to taste

I used silicon muffin "tins" for my mini quiche. That means no liners and the quiches DO NOT stick.

Mix all but the cheese, all together in the bowl.  Divide into 18 muffin forms. Sprinkle with the cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese is brown.
