Breakfast Week: Quiche

adapted from

1/2 Cup Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
1/2 Cup Green Pepper, Minced
1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 (9-inch) Deep Dish Frozen Pie Crust
4 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
1 Cup Half-and-Half
Salt and Pepper, To Taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Put the pie crust on a cookie sheet.  Place bacon, green pepper, and cheese in the frozen pie crust.  In a bowl, mix together the eggs, cream, and salt and pepper.  Pour the egg mixture in the crust over the cheese mixture.  Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 35 minutes until top of quiche begins to turn brown. 

This quiche recipe was very simple.  I even cooked the bacon and chopped the pepper ahead of time so it came together very quickly.  I love this recipe because it's so versatile.  You can literally dump whatever veggies, meat, and cheese that are sitting in your fridge into the pie crust.  This would be amazing with some diced ham, chopped onion, sliced asparagus... anything!  Let your imagination (and your leftovers) be your guide!  Also, I did an experiment and found that real men DO eat quiche!  And they love it!  And they love you!  And they love you for making it for them!
