I love quiche.
Quiche is one of those dishes that can be easy to throw on the table for those 'gotta feed the family FAST!' kind of meals. I tell my kids that quiche is like breakfast pizza because you can pretty much add whatever toppings/add-ins you want. Boy 2 and Missy Moo (not lovers of quiche) eye me like I've done lost m'mind. "Pizza is nothing like quiche, Mom. Quiche is all eggy and gross." Thank you sweet child, your comments warm my heart.
But seriously, folks. Quiche is so versatile. If you love red onions, sun-dried tomatoes and feta you've got yourself a Greek Quiche. If you prefer Swiss cheese, ham and asparagus, go at it! It also makes a great way to use up some of those veggies that are begging to be used up. A fridge cleaner-outer and a quick meal in one?!? Yes, that is miracle that is quiche.
This quiche is very yummy. Bacon and three kinds of cheese?! Fabulous! You can use this dish as a great breakfast or brunch option or, like in our family, a great 'breakfast for supper' idea that, if you use a frozen pie shell (I won't tell), can be on the table lickety-split!
frozen pie shell (or from scratch)
3 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup bacon (or good quality, fresh bacon bits)
1 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup creamer (or milk)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan, grated
Preheat oven to 400F. Sprinkle green onions, bacon, Cheddar and feta into the pie shell.
In a medium bowl, combine eggs until mixed well. Add creamer and water and mix. Place your pie plate (if using a frozen pie shell) onto a cookie sheet (otherwise it will be floppy and hard to get into the oven without being covered in egg).
Carefully pour egg mixture over the bacon/onion/cheese mixture in the pie shell. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 10 minutes at 400F. Reduce heat to 350F and continue baking for 30 minutes more or until a knife inserted into the centre of the quiche comes out fairly dry and the eggs have set.
Serve with a green salad and fresh bread!
