We couldn't decide what dinner was going to be so we made it up as we went. We love the country, applewood, thick sliced bacon that we ordered for Christmas. That crunchy goodness along with four different savory cheese made for the perfect toss-tegether dinner Quiche.
We made our in our deep dish pizza pan...
12 slices cooked country bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded smoked Gouda
1 cup shredded baby Swiss
1 cup shredded Coby/Jack blend
4 green onion diced
3 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°. Roll pastry dough into circle large enough to fit your pan or 4 (9-inch) pie dishes. Places in dishes and flute edges
Mix together bacon, all the cheeses and onions, place into the bottom of large pan or decide equally between pie dishes between shells. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper until blended. Pour into pan or pie dishes, remember to fill only about 3/4 full to allow
for expansion during cooking.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Pie dishes will only need to bake for about 15-20 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
Yield: 1 deep dish quiche or 4 regular quiches (8 - 16 servings each).
