Quiche


Last summer, right after we got engaged, Joel and I went on a vacation to Europe. Four countries in 3 weeks-England, Ireland, France, and Spain. We had an absolutely wonderful time. On our first night in Madrid, we walked around and found this quaint little bakery down the street from our flat. We ended up buying 2 slices of vegetable quiche to take home for dinner. It was absolutely delicious. Ever since, we crave quiche every so often!


We've bought some pre-made quiche at our supermarket before, but I've been wanting to make my own for a while now. I came across this recipe on Sing For Your Supper. It was exactly what I needed to get me started. I used the base of this recipe and added my own ingredients.

1-9 inchPie Crust (I used a frozen one)
7 Eggs
3/4 cup Half and Half
1 package Fresh Sliced Mushrooms (I didn't plan to put this many in, but Joel made dinner!)
6 slices Bacon, cooked and chopped
4 slices Swiss Cheese, julienned (you can use shredded, I just couldn't find any at the store)
Handful of Fresh Spinach
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cook the bacon, then crumble. Cook the pie crust according to package directions (mine was about 15 minutes). In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and half and half. Add spinach, mushrooms, bacon, and swiss cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into pie crust and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the quiche is about 185 degrees. Allow the quiche to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
