Mac and Cheese Quiche

Six tomatoes were sitting on the counter getting a bit old.  And, a bunch of asparagus was having the same problem in the fridge.  What to do with them?  I kept picturing a kind of quiche with a mac and cheese crust.  Couldn’t come up with a recipe on Eat Your Books or by searching the internet.  So, I decided to make one up.  By the time the box mix of mac and cheese was made I realized that using a pie plate and trying to have the “crust” come up the sides wasn’t going to work.  I pulled out a casserole dish instead.  A sprinkle of cheese on the bottom, the mac and cheese, the roasted tomatoes and asparagus, the egg mixture and then, finally, another sprinkle of cheese.  We gave this a solid four on a scale of one to five.  Connie asked during dinner if I’d written it down and I assured him I’d taken photos every step of the way and that I’d write the recipe down today.  Because this is absolutely a make again! 



1 box macaroni and cheese prepared according to the package directions.  (I always toss in a handful of grated cheese)

2 large tomatoes, quartered

1 bunch asparagus

Olive oil

6 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated

4 eggs

¼ c sour cream

1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning



Prepare the mac and cheese.  While that’s cooking, roast the tomatoes and asparagus for about 15 minutes at 450.  I drizzled them with olive oil and sprinkled them with freshly ground pepper prior to roasting.

Grate the cheese on the large holes of the grater.  Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese in the bottom of a casserole dish.  Add another 1/3 to the mac and cheese.  Reserve the last 1/3 for the topping

Mix the eggs, sour cream and Italian seasoning.


Pour the mac and cheese into the casserole dish and even the top.

 Put the roasted vegetables on top.

 Pour over the eggs.  Sprinkle on the last 1/3 of the cheese. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
