My chickens lay these absolutely gorgeous eggs with dark orange yolks and now they're laying up to two dozen (sometimes more!) a day. So, you can probably guess that I'm always looking for recipes that use eggs. This is one of my favorites in the summer.
Mix and Match Quiche
I had a handful of asparagus from my garden - not enough for a meal for four. I had lots and lots of eggs. I had bacon in the freezer from our pigs butchered last fall. Finally, I had pie crusts made with lard I had rendered from our pigs in the freezer (I make four pie crusts at a time, roll them in balls, and freeze them). So quiche was inevitably what was for dinner!
I love this recipe. I can't tell you from where it came, but it's completely versatile. BTW, I think a pound of bacon is waaaay too much meat - and I always add some kind of vegetable. Other than the egg milk, flour, and mustard, everything else can be switched out. I've used ham, chicken, and other meats I have on hand in place of the bacon. I prefer a sharp cheddar to the Swiss cheese. I've used feta - yum! Sometimes I'll a different spice or herb other than nutmeg. Thyme goes well with ham and broccoli. And any number of veggies can be mixed in - broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, chard, the sky is the limit!
I'd be interested to hear what you mix and match in your quiche... enjoy!
