Do real men eat quiche? I think that was a book from the 70's, we have often joked about quiche. I happen to love quiche and have tried to get the men in our family to love it to. Do they? Well, they do love quiche, especially if it has plenty of meat in like this recipe. It must be served with a side of salsa and a dash of Cholula's. And last but probably most important, it can't be served too often. I on the other hand could eat quiche for lunch several times a week.
9-inch pie crust--straight from the freezer section at Walmart or you could make your own
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, or cheddar, or jack--pepper jack is fun
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup ham, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 green or red pepper, diced
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
Bake unpricked pie crust for 5 minutes at 425 degrees. Remove from oven and sprinkle ham, bacon, cheese, onion and pepper on crust. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, cream, lemon peel, salt, and dry mustard. Pour evenly over cheese mixture. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until set. Remove from heat and let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with salsa or diced tomato. Serves 6.
