Introduction

Almost five years ago, a bunch of guys were sitting around in a locker room at an ice rink on a Friday morning after an early morning pickup hockey session. One of them wondered out loud if there was another time of the week where they could get together for a good session that wouldn’t conflict with anyone’s other activities (work, family, etc.). Discussion of another late day or early evening weeknight time slot ensued. First off, they quickly came to the realization that any ice time slots at those popular times were not available. And on top of that, even if there were, they thought that another prime time session would result in a few divorces/breakups, or at least add to stress on relationships. That left Saturdays and Sundays. But what time could they schedule with a rink that they could consistently have that others would be able to make? Saturday was usually reserved for family time and chores around the house and none of them thought that a couple of hours out of a Saturday was a good idea. That left Sunday morning.

Sunday morning! Oh my, was any rink even open on Sunday mornings? What time would they be willing to open? How would this affect the churchgoing crowd? Would any of this result in divorces? This is how the Sunday Morning Ice Breakers came into existence.

You might ask, what does this have to do with a cookbook? Well, pretty much everything. The formation of this group of early Sunday morning hockey heathens resulted in about 25 hungry hockey players every Sunday morning. For almost six months, people brought snacks of differing quality and quantity. Someone brought coffee and doughnuts as the way to go for a little après hockey refreshment. The next weekend, someone else brought beer and tamalés (we do live in the Southwest after all). Next, came burritos and beer. The options were getting expensive. A spirited discussion ensued about what was the most economical but still manly breakfast food. No one could agree on anything, and one guy said he’d bring something the next weekend. In the back of our minds there was just a short list of requirements. Hand held, simple but tasty, easily procured or prepared. So, on that fateful Sunday, he brought a plain bacon quiche that he had cooked himself. He had to dare us to eat it. Men don’t eat quiche, after all. Everyone knows that. He made his case that it takes a real man to eat quiche. Many didn’t try it, but one did and responded with, You cooked this? I could do better. Game on.

Then next weekend, I was cooking up the Super Spicy Green Chili, Mushroom and Sausage quiche. Little did I know that it would lead to a number of crazy concoctions that would result in this tome. At the time, my only concern was to make it as spicy hot as I could without rendering anyone unconscious. Along with that first double-burning hot (if you’ve had super spicy food, you know what I mean) quiche, I brought along Clamato to mix in the beers. The Clamato idea came from some of my western Canadian friends, and it was — and still is — a hard sell to get these guys to put a bit in their precious beer. What resulted, after a bunch of whining about the heat, was a new tradition for the Sunday Morning Ice Breakers.

After four plus years of making strange and exotic quiches, and fine-tuning them on this hardy group of taste testers, I’ve compiled the recipes to all the ones that I can remember here. Some are incredibly easy to make. Some rely on the work of others to make them better than they really are. But most of all these are all favorites of this group of Sunday morning hockey hooligans. These recipes use the average man’s most favored ingredients. And some are even maybe a little healthy if you consider that, when you eat them as we do, that you’ve just left the entire caloric value of the slice, and then some, out on the ice.

To make this easy for men to make on their own, I’ve broken this into two major sections, Crusts (only seven recipes) and 26 different Fillings. You
