Big Flavor Doesn’t Have to Come With Maximum Effort in the Kitchen


SPONSORED CONTENT -- (StatePoint) Is your kitchen routine in need of some inspiration? There’s no better way to transform your culinary repertoire than with spices.

With the right flavor combinations, anyone can elevate mealtimes with minimal effort, whether they’re in the kitchen cooking, or at the table, seasoning a finished dish.

Taking the guesswork out of the equation are Flavor Maker Seasonings. Flavoring meals from prep to plate, the 15 blends in this new line from the McCormick brand are each expertly crafted without additives to offer a quick and convenient way to enhance the flavor of any dish – from eggs to chicken to veggies.

Speaking of eggs, you can start your mornings off right with this recipe for Veggie Bacon Quiche, which has an extra pop of savory and sharp flavor, thanks to its use of Flavor Maker Egg Topping Seasoning in both the veggie and egg mixtures.


• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

• 1 small red bell pepper, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

• 1 small yellow onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

• 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)

• 2 teaspoons Flavor Maker Egg Topping Seasoning, divided

• 1 refrigerated pie crust (from 14.1-ounce package)

• 6 slices thick-sliced bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled (about 1 cup)

• 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

• 4 large eggs

• 1/2 cup milk


1. Place oven rack in lowest position. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add vegetables and 1 teaspoon Flavor Maker Seasoning. Cook and stir 5 minutes until softened. Remove from heat.

2. Prepare pie crust as directed on package for one-crust pie using 9-inch pie plate. Layer vegetable mixture, bacon and cheese in pie crust. Whisk eggs, milk, and remaining 1 teaspoon Flavor Maker Seasoning in medium bowl until well blended. Pour egg mixture over filling in pie crust.

3. Bake on lowest oven rack 40 to 45 minutes until set, and knife inserted in center comes out clean. If necessary, after 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Sprinkle with additional Flavor Maker Egg Topping, to taste.

Tip: Flavor Maker Egg Topping Seasoning is also great sprinkled on scrambled or fried eggs or stirred into omelets and breakfast casseroles.
