Real Men DO Eat Quiche

June 4, 2017 – Real Men DO eat quiche

As promised, I am posting the recipe for quiche.  Back 20 years ago, there used to be a saying ‘Real men don’t eat quiche’, which I never understood where it came from.  Brian loves this recipe and it is so easy to make. This is a great basic recipe you can easily modify based on what is in your refrigerator.  Also, I make my own pie crust but please don’t let a pie crust stop you from making one of the easiest recipes, buy a pre-made crust or a mix and roll it out yourself.  You will look like a genius when you serve a quiche with a simple side salad to your family.

Again, we were gifted with a dozen fresh eggs from Captain Ethan, and I had some left-over bacon from breakfast and with some sautéed onions, garlic and spinach I had the makings of a delicious dinner.

A dozen fresh eggs, some are a beautiful light blue color.

A simple quiche is so easy to make

Quiche

4 large eggs, beaten

1 cup light cream (I only had ½ & ½ in the refrigerator so I used a total of 2 cups total and it worked out great)

1 cup milk (didn’t use because of doubling the ½ & ½)

1 tablespoon flour

½ tsp salt

½ tsp ground black pepper

Dash of nutmeg

1 ½ cups shredded cheese, I tend to use cheddar

Mix-ins based on what your preference is, be creative

Pie Crust – bottom shell only

 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Prebake the piecrust for 5-7 minutes at 450 degrees.  Remove from oven and decrease temperature to 350 degrees.

Whisk together eggs, cream, milk, flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg to a smooth consistency. Mix in cheese and other mix-ins.  Pour egg mixture into pie shell and bake for 50-60 minutes until firm and if you insert a knife into the center, it comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Leftovers heat well in the microwave as well.
