For the Real Men out there:

Today was a FIRST for me! I made quiche!

This recipe is from my dear sister-in-law, Anne. I called and asked her for it because we all loved it at her house.

In a large bowl:
3 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
sliced green onion (I used 3 of them -- use as many as you like. This is where this quiche gets its GREAT flavor.)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
a dash of nutmeg
3/4 cup meat -- crispy bacon, ham, chicken, even crab
1 1/2 cup grated cheese (use Swiss, Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Havarti -- I used a combination of Swiss, Cheddar & Havarti b/c I had all three in the frig.)
1 T flour

Save out the cheese and flour, and add them right before you put it in the pie crust.
Heat your oven to 450, prick the bottom of the crust, and bake your pie crust (pick a recipe you like) for 5 minutes. Turn the oven down to 325 and bake another 5-7 minutes. Remove, and pour cheese mixture into the crust.
Bake for 40 minutes. This was a big hit with my family. Adam is not wild about quiche, but the rest of us love it. Since it had bacon and green onion, and cheeses they like, the flavor was well-received. I'd never put broccoli in it, for instance.
I will say, I truly botched the crust on this one. Do you notice that you can't even SEE the crust? I decided to use the crust from the apple pandowdy recipe -- so easy, and I love making it. But it did NOT hold up; it slid right down the side of the pie dish, and resisted all attempts by me to make it climb back up that dish! And it was soggy and not crispy, in this recipe. Ah well. Live and learn. In the pandowdy, it only has to lie there like a slug and turn glisteny. Here, I need something heartier -- crust with an attitude! I'll try a different crust recipe next time.
