Real Men Do Eat Quiche*
Editors Note: Bad Editor! ES friend Aaron sent this post a wicked long time ago. But, I’ve been lazy on downloading the pic to go with it. Here’s what he made for our breakfast-for-dinner Project Runway party. And note his squash confusion too!
So for this week’s breakfast themed Project Runway Dinner, I knew what I had to do: make the tart!
I enlisted the help of my housemate, Kashuo.
I could not for the life of me find zucchinis, even though I walked right past them a bunch of times, but they were labeled green squashes. And I thought that might be something different. But they’re really not. I was like: damn, those green squashes look so much like zucchinis!
I asked a young man stocking shelves wearing his supermarket employee uniform if he could help me find pastry shells. He looked at me like I had asked for a thesis, a pint of blood, his Social Security number, and his first-adopted son!
Turns out a tart and a quiche are basically the same thing.

Bacon, Gruyere and Squash Quiche/Tart
We cracked 10 eggs and poured them in a bowl and used a whisk to mix them with flour until we had this yellow soupy batter.
Then baking. Lots of baking on a low temperature.
