It’s Greek to me

The quiche. Unlike my confusion surrounding my Danish Potato Salad(not that Danish according to a Dane!)I get this quiche. I don’t think quiche is Greek, per se. But Greek cuisine does have things like tomatoes and feta so I get why they call this Greek. I get it. Unlike life. Which I don’t get. And I don’t think I should.
I also don’t get olives.
I hate them. Actually, it seems to run in my family on both sides-maternally and paternally.
My mom claims that one time she actually enjoyed an olive in France. One time. Clearly she was intoxicated on the vin they serve there.
All this is to say, I left the olives out of this quiche, but if you are not a Clifford, or making this for one, feel free to add some and kick up the Greek-i-ness.

Any foods you can’t stand? Is it familial?

    Mmm. This sounds delish! And I love that it’s crustless!

      Yes! Admittedly, I might have made crust if I had had more time, but the quiche is probably healthier this way:)

    Love crustless quiche, especially this one cuz I love Mediterranean food. Haha I used to absolutely hate bacon when I was little, the smell would disturb me so much that I’d leave the kitchen whenever my mom would cook it.

      Never was a huge bacon fan either, when I ate meat!

    You’re crazy! Olives are delightful!

    P.S.
    Thanks for the recipe – needed an easy veg dish the man can make for us on his cooking nights!

      Much like children, olives are fine…if I don’t have to deal with them:)
