Quiche is one of my go-to meals!
And I have an easy one to share with you today.
is an open-face pastry crust with a
filling of eggs and milk which, when
baked, becomes a custard. It can be
made with vegetables, meat and seafood.
This definition tells me that as long as I have
milk and eggs, I can pretty much dump any
thing else I have in a pie crust and have
dinner on the table in about 30 minutes!
That's a winner in my book.
And the fact that you can "customize"
your quiche for your family puts this
meal over the top!
Today's recipe is a very basic one, you could
switch out the bacon for any meat or seafood
and use any cheese that compliments the
protein you chose.
Use whatever you have on hand; leftovers
My hubby likes to make a big breakfast for the family
over the weekend; bacon, eggs, pancakes and french
toast. Its a regular breakfast bar.
So this past weekend, I asked him to make some extra
bacon so I could make quiche this week.
Well, you would have thought I spoke in a foreign
language, both my son & hubby cocked their
heads and in unison said, "There is no such
thing as "extra" bacon!"
So I just bagged some up before bringing it
to the breakfast table and no one even noticed.
This quiche starts simply by putting your pie
crust in the pie plate. Homemade crust or
store bought, both work fine.
Feel free to make a pretty crimped edge,
I just throw my store bought crust in this
time and didn't worry about the pretty part.
toss gently place your bacon and
shredded cheese in the crust.
Beat your eggs, milk, salt and pepper together
and pour it into the crust.
Pop it in the oven and in about 30 minutes you'll
be enjoying a yummy meal with your family.
It's that easy!
Here's the handy dandy printable recipe.
I hope you'll give it a try.
