Quiche making 101
Look up 12 different quiche recipes..
realize that you don't have all the ingredients
to any of the recipes..
make up your own.
Step 1. Gather supplies
The recipes called for 6 eggs....two eggs....three eggs...
so I decided on four eggs.
Not just any eggs.....these came from happy, spoiled chickens.
I think they had eaten caramel cake that morning.
Makes the quiche sweet.
Now....it called for shredded Cheddar cheese.
All I had was Mexican 4 cheese...
it's a winner!
Most of the recipes called for heavy cream...
I didn't have heavy cream
or a cow....
so I just used regular whole milk. (probably not from happy cows)
Here's what you do.
Take your thawed spinach and drain it of it's moisture.
I put it in my colander and mash (that's a southern term) it down
with paper towels.
Fry your package of bacon until crispy
then chop the bacon into small pieces.
Take some butter and melt it and paint the bottom of your pie crusts.
Then assemble spinach and bacon.
This is half the box of spinach and I halved the bacon.
Don't forget to chop up the bacon.
I had enough bacon and spinach to do two pies.
I mixed a cup of milk with my 4 eggs.
And added 5 dashes of hot sauce..
(or maybe a smidge more because it's hard to take a picture of that)
and I added a little salt and pepper.
Next your husband will come in and ask
What are you making?
And then you will say quiche and he will turn his nose up and say
And you say never mind it's not for you and beat him out of the kitchen.
And speaking of beating...
Now put one and a half cups (or whatever looks good to you) of cheese on top of the spinach and bacon
and pour the wet ingredients over that.
And top that with Parmesan cheese.
I will say that I had enough spinach, bacon and cheese to make two pies..
I only had to mix up the wet ingredients again.
Bake at 375 for 35 to 45 minutes.
And you look around and beat your chest
and say in a deep voice
Uga....I make quiche!
(you don't do that?)
Anyway the quiche was delicious!!!
Even the guys liked it!
And I was able to take the other one to a very, special person.
Here is one of the recipes that I kind of, sort of followed.
