"Real Men don't eat Quiche"

They just make it!  Those of you who are older will remember that this was a book title. 
  Bettie’s boss, our lawyer and friend has been doing quite a bit of cooking this past year. He has 4 teenagers and says that this has made him more adventurous in the recipes he fixes. Teenagers can be your worst critics so if you can please them, count yourself as becoming a good cook. 
  I like his theory as it is also mine, that if you can read you can cook or bake. I gifted him with the Newest Red Plaid cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens and he has the Treasured Recipes from the First Christian Church. This recipe is from America’s Hometown Recipe Book which was also a gift from a friend of his.
  Todays young adults and parents are finding out what a joy cooking can be and how much better it is for you and your budget. Here is Eric’s recipe for his quiche and the picture he took. Looks Good Eric
Bacon Quiche
8 to 10 slices bacon
½ cup coarsely chopped onion
1 unbaked 10 inch pie shell
Eric's Quiche
1 egg white lightly beaten
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
2 cups evaporated milk
4 eggs beaten
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
  Preheat oven to 450°. Fry the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Drain and crumble. Pour off all but one tablespoon of bacon drippings. Return to burner and saute onions, 6 to 8 minutes.
  Brush pie shell with egg white. Layer bacon, onion, and cheese into pie shell. Whisk together evaporated milk and eggs and pour into pie shell.
  Place in oven and immediately reduce heat to 400° and bake for 12 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 and bake 30 minutes more, or until custard is set and lightly browned. Serve hot. Makes 4 to 6 servings.


  1. I was going to comment on the "boughten" crust and say, don't you know the trick to make them look homemade? Then I actually read it and now my comment is "way to go Eric!" I enjoy your blog very much. Wish we were neighbors.........

  2. Thanks Pam,
    I make my own pie crusts and that is what Eric wants to try next time. Wish we could be neighbors with all of our readers. Thanks for the nice comment.
