BACON, ONION, & CHEDDAR QUICHE
Quiche is a crust with a savory custard filling of eggs, cheese, meat
and/or vegetables. I haven't had a slice for a long time. Time for a
try. It's the season of eggs after all.
1 frozen pie shell, pre-bake according to package directions
5 large eggs
1 cup half and half or heavy cream
8 slices cooked bacon crumbled
1 small onion diced
1 Tbsp. butter
1 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese, plus a little more
1/4 tsp. of pepper
1/4 tsp. of salt
optional.. diced green peppers or mushrooms (about 1/4 cup)
can use1/2 Gruyere cheese and 1/2 cheddar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Use a cookie sheet to set quiche on while cooking,
Melt butter in a skillet over med-high heat, add onions,
and cook till golden. (if adding green peppers or mushrooms
cook with onions)
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add half and half, salt and
pepper, stir till combined. Don't beat like for scrambled
Add bacon, onions and cheese to pre-baked pie shell.
Pour egg mixture on top of bacon/onion/cheese mixture.
Put on preheated baking sheet and place in oven. You can
sprinkle a little cheese on top on quiche, but it will make the
top a little dk brown.
Bake 40 minutes, but check, can be a little soft in center in center,
it will set up. Don't overcook.
Allow to cool for about 15 minutes. Serve at room temperature.
* If it rises in center while cooking, don't worry, it will deflate
as it cools.
