Bacon and Mushroom Quiche

Quiche is one of those wonderful things that seems fancy but is really super simple. Once you get the hang of making the crust, it's an easy go-to meal that is really satisfying. You can use just about any meat, cheese or vegetable in this dish and, paired with a simple green salad, have a declious meal for your family and friends. It also reheats well and makes great leftovers. It's always great when you can cook something once and eat it again the next day with no hassle...that is, if there are any leftovers to be had!

1 pie dough (see previous posting for recipe; use search function in sidebar to locate)
3/4 cup heavy cream
7 eggs
small pinch of nutmeg (opt.)
salt (I would estimate about 1/2 tsp.)
1/3 cup shredded cheese (swiss or colby-jack and great)
3/4 cups chopped baby bella mushrooms
6 strips cooked bacon, chopped

Roll out pie dough into a greased pie pan. Sprinkle bacon, mushrooms and cheese into the bottom of the pan.
Beat eggs, and heavy cream in a large bowl. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Pour over cheese, bacon, mushroom mixture.
Place quiche on a cooking sheet and bake at 350 degrees approximately 1 hour (or until top puffs up and begins to brown). Remove from oven and allow quiche to cool 15-20 minutes. This dish is best served warm, not hot.
Slice and serve. Voila!

I'm really hungry right now and this blog doesn't help my hunger pains AT ALL whatsoever. Thanks for making it worse Alison. :) No really, this quiche looks delictable! YUM! I wish I had your cooking talents my friend. I also wish I had the patience for the kitchen. I'm horrible at that part! Ha ha!

Blessings, Angie

Glad you like it! If I was half as good at cooking as you are at photography, I'd be the next Wolfgang Puck ;)
