Cheesy Quiche?

I love quiche...but this was definitely an acquired taste for me....AND THEN I LOST THE ABILITY TO EAT IT!  What the heck?  Grow to love something and then when you do you can no longer eat it?!  Until now :-D  This is another recipe from the lactose free food that was at my bridal shower.


Ingredients:

  • (1) 9" pie crust - if you don't want to make one Pillsbury makes a delicious lactose free pie crust
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 cup (4oz) shredded swiss cheese (Kraft is lactose free!)
  • 1 cup (4oz) shreded cheddar cheese (Cabot, duh!)
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 1/14 cup light cream (I used soy milk but coconut cream would work too)
  • 3/4 teasp salt
  • 1/8 teasp pepper
  • chopped onions
  • chopped peppers
  • sliced/chopped mushrooms
  • bacon pieces
Directions:
  • Line pie plate with pastry (do no prick and do NOT grease!)
    • if you grease it it will collapse during the next step
  • Bake the crust by itself on 350 for 7 min
  • mash hard boiled eggs and sprinkle in the bottom of the pie shell
  • top the eggs with the cheeses
  • combine beaten eggs, milk, salt, pepper, onions, peppers, bacon, and mushrooms, pour over hard boiled eggs + cheese
    • you can use anything in this, one of the quiches had spinach in it, yummy
  • Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes until set
    • may need to cook longer.  It should be set and lightly browned on top
  • Slice and serve!
This was so so yummy at the shower.  Quiche makes a nice meal for breakfast and or brunch.  Try it with different ingredients and have a little fun with it :).  The lactose free version was completely eaten by the end of the shower, I guess that means non lactards liked it too!  I also think the soy milk adds a nice deeper flavor, makes it less sweet and rich tasting too.



The puppies (Ben on left and Nellie on right) really liked it when I "accidentally" dropped bacon pieces.)
