Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Bacon Cheddar Quiche

This recipe comes from the Kids Health websiteI really love quiche.  As a matter of fact, I didn't even make this for Rachel.  I made it for me to take to brunch at a friends house.  It is so good, so very easy, so creamy and freezes well.  I hope one day you'll try it. 

It doesn't look that pretty, but it sure is good.

Bacon Cheddar Quiche

Ingredients -

  • 9 inch pie crust
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 c heavy cream
  • 1 c cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz broiled/pan fried bacon

Directions -
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Whisk eggs and cream in a medium bowl until blended well.
  3. Stir cheese into egg mixture.
  4. Put pie crust into pie pan and sprinkle with bacon.
  5. Pour egg mixture over bacon.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 and bake for approximately 35+ minutes longer.  Quiche is finished  cooking when a knife inserted  in the middle comes out clean. (I had to cook mine about 50 minutes.)
  7. Let the quiche cool for a few minutes before cutting.
Serving size - 1/8 of quiche
Serves - 8

I wanted to add that you may start thinking (as you're mixing the egg mixture) that it's not all going to fit in the pie crust.  It does!  I did put the pie pan on a baking sheet and then put it in the oven.
