This smells sooo good!!!

Our meal plan shifted back a day because of going out to eat on Friday, and then me going off the plan yesterday.

But, today we're back, with quiche! This one came out of my new cookbook, but the recipe is also online, so I'll share it with you guys here, too.

Real Simple's Basic Quiche

1 9-inch pie crust
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
salt and pepper
1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
4 large eggs
3/4 cup half-and-half
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
8 ounces Gruyere, grated
4 cups mixed greens

1. Heat oven to 375. Fit the crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Place on a baking sheet.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the parsley.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in the onion mixture and the Gruyere.
4. Pour the egg mixture into the crust. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes. Drizzle the greens with the remaining tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the quiche.

I also added in half a chopped chicken breast because I had it leftover from last night and didn't want to waste it.

It was really, really good. I will definitely be making this one again.
