While cleaning out some photos, I noticed that I have an entire folder of "Quiche" photos. That's just weird. I suppose my quiche photography compulsion is because when you take them out of the oven, they're just so photogenic. Maybe, if I blog my foolproof recipe, I can stop snapping pictures and get over this habit.
I keep reading comments online about how people get irritated with the recipe's history and just want to read the darn recipe. So, without further ado:
Marla's Foolproof Quiche
Makes One Quiche
1 package refrigerated pie crusts (they usually come two to a package)
1/2 pint whipping cream
2 cups grated cheese (Swiss is traditional, but use whatever you have)
Six strips of fried and drained bacon, broken into bits, or 1 cup cooked ham, chopped
2 green onions, washed, dried, and sliced
1 t. salt
1/ t. pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Get out one of the pie crusts, and let it warm up a little at room temperature, so that it'll be easier to work with.
Dig out a quiche pan, if you have one. If you don't, a pie pan will work.
While you're waiting for the crust to warm up, grate your cheese(s).
Fry bacon, or chop ham.
Beat eggs in a large bowl and pour in cream. Beat a little more to make sure it's all combined.
Unroll pie crust and distribute evenly in quiche dish or pie pan. Give the edges a crimp, using your fingers, or get out a fork and crimp with that.
Sprinkle the bacon or ham onto the pie crust.
Sprinkle the cheese(s) over the meat.
Distribute the green onions over the meat.
Pour the egg-cream mixture carefully over the other ingredients. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
I say "sprinkle" a lot.
Gently slide dish into the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes. Check at 40 minutes. If it's puffed up, and golden, it can come out. If not, let it go another ten minutes.
I like to make this for dinner, and then we heat up the extra slices for breakfast during the week.
Nice to double ingredients and make two. Once cooled, you can freeze, or take to a potluck, or a neighbor.
I'll put in more photos, below, because . . . I have them.
