Quiche

quiche 7

I have heard some say that real men do not eat quiche but I have seen several real men eat an entire quiche. This wonderful dish is a failed typecast of stereotypically feminine food. It can be served hot or cold, breakfast or lunch, quick snack or dinner. There are so many combinations and things to add to make this meal. Quiche is always a favorite in our home.

Ingredients

  • 7 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups half and half (or you can use whole cream, or full fat milk)
  • sausage
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 2 cups of cheese
  • 2 deep dish pie crust (store bought works fine)

Directions

1. Cook sausage, bell peppers and onions. Set aside.

2. Whip eggs and milk with a whisk. Add seasoning  which I did not include in the list because I would suggest seasoning as you would your eggs. I use a dash of hot sauce, basil, kosher salt, black pepper, & garlic.

3. Place your pie crusts on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I like to layer my ingredients and then top with eggs because I feel it cooks more evenly and I can distribute the ingredients much better.

4. Scoop equal amounts of meat, onions and bell pepper into the pie crust. Top with 1/2 cup cheese each. Divide egg mixture between the two pie pans.

5. Cover will foil and bake 400 degrees for 1 hr. I top with foil to ensure even baking and it prevents the crust from cooking too quickly. Remove foil and top with remaining cheese on each pie and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.

So here is an age old debate, ketchup or nah? Me… I love it. I can’t eat quiche without it. But, I have seen people get hardcore snobbish about it!

    As far as the ketchup or nah debate goes I say to each their own. Eat what you love and love what you eat. Just for the record I am in the nah camp, but I ain’t hatin’.

      I don’t care for eggs so I can relate! I try to include them in my diet but I work very hard on recipes that make them tolerable. I plan to do a post on a frittata and I will let you know when I post. That is another way to enjoy eggs for breakfast!
