Cooking with Eggs – Quiche

9eggsIf you have laying hens you learn to cook many ways with eggs.   You accumulate a large collection of good ways to cook eggs.   Quiche is one the house favorites here.   It is something I often serve to guests, who seem to enjoy it.   This is the recipe I use.

1 cup shredded cheese.   (Swiss, sharp cheddar, gouda, use something good)

4 slices of bacon, or diced ham   (you want enough to sprinkle across the bottom of your tart or pie pan without making it solid covering)

1/4 c. sweet onion saute until clear in good olive oil.

3 eggs, beaten

1 c. half and half or whole milk , or mixture of them.

1 T Dijon Mustard (now I have told you my secret)

1 unbaked pie shell in a 9 pie or tart pan

Preheat oven to 375.  Toss together in a bowl the cheese, meat and onion, then spread the mixture across the bottom of your pastry.   Combine the eggs, milk and Dijon mustard, wisk until well mixed.   Pour over the cheese mixture.   Bake 25-30 minutes.   You can tell it is done when a knife inserted comes out clean.   Enjoy!
