Stilettos and Diapers: Real men eat quiche.

1.25.2011

Real men eat quiche.

Its recipe time! First off, I think you need a disclaimer.

1) I will never take amazing food porn pics. {Unless, of course, someone gives me major photog lessons}
2) I am a recipe adjuster. I come up with a bunch myself, but I like to take recipes and make them my own.
3) I do lots of substitution for healthier ingredients, but I love butter. {Holla, Paula Deen}

The end.

Spinach Bacon Quiche
The players

Fry up the bacon and set aside. {I use turkey bacon.}

While its cooking, slice the onion very thin.

Then saute in butter, butter, butter. While the onion cooks, beat eggs and cream.

Add shredded swiss cheese.
When the onion is translucent, add in spinach.
Make my fave pie crust and push into pan.
Cool veggie mix for 15 min then add into egg mix.
Then pour into uncooked pie crust.
When its done cooking, it should be lightly browned on top.
And cooked until only slightly jiggly.
Recipe

1/2 lb bacon (I used turkey)
1 stick of butter (Told, ya)
2 onions
5 oz fresh spinach
7 whole eggs
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cups grated swiss cheese (I use reduced fat)
Salt and pepper to taste

Loosely cover with foil and bake at 400 for 1 hour. Remove foil for last 10 minutes of cooking.

The crust I use for everything:

1/3 cup butter
4 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup flour

Cut until mixture resembles small pebbles. It isn't a great roll out crust, but perfect for pressing into a pie pan.

I made this for dinner, but it would be perfect for breakfast or brunch. The hubs was uber skeptical, cause it is quiche and all, but he not only ate it, but enjoyed it. Awesome.

  2. Nice pics! I am not an egg or cheese person, otherwise I'd say looks delicious! LOL. But I know you are a good cook so I know no doubt it was. Why doesn't B like quiche? Does he like eggs and cheese?

  10. My Hubs loves quiche and I hate it. Mostly becuase his mom just puts raw onions in all of her quiches and I hate the crunchy onions... So, I'm definitely going to try this since I love onions when they're soft!!! Thanks for the post!

    My Twitter id is: ChelsiYarger Thanks!

  11. OK, first I do not think you need the "I don't take good food porn pictures" disclaimer anymore because they are actually pretty decent.
    Second this post is making me very hungry!
    Third, my real man won't touch quiche with a ten foot pole, no matter what I put in it. Seriously, once I load it up with every heart-attack-waiting-to-happen food I could think of that he loves and he still ate the tiniest piece possible! I gave up!!!
