Southwestern Cornbread Quiche

Not sure exactly where this recipe came from, a blog of some sort somewhere I’m sure.  I’ve been making it for a few years now and if you could see the state of the piece of paper the recipe is on you would see how often I have made it.  At some point I need to find a way to organize and clean up my recipe pages.

This recipe is super easy to make and has very little ingredients.

First I used a julienne peeler to peel the zucchini, not all the way, just to the seeded part of the vegetable.  You could use a regular peeler or even use a veggetti.

I chopped the strips smaller and added them into a large bowl with the cornbread mix, an egg and 1/3 cup of milk.

Once those were mixed together I sprayed an 8×8 pan with cooking spray and poured the mixture in.

I put the pan in a 400 degree oven for 12 minutes so the cornbread could set.  While that was baking I mixed together 5 eggs, 1/4 cup hummus, 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp of salsa, and a couple shakes of salt and pepper.

When the cornbread was done I topped it with the egg mixture and put it back in the oven for 20 more minutes.  I checked the quiche after 20 minutes with a knife to make sure it came out clean.

For dinner I topped a piece of the quiche with some extra salsa and put it over a bed of spinach.  Below the ingredients and directions are listed.
