NOVELIST QUICHE

This recipe started off as Ree Drummond’s Cowgirl Quiche, but veered sharply off the page once I started considering the ingredients and my family’s likes and dislikes. So, I suppose I should claim this recipe as my own. It’s delicious and the texture is wonderful. Enjoy!

1 deep dish ready-made pie shell (I like Marie Callender’s brand)

8 oz white mushrooms, cleaned, sliced thin, and chopped

5 slices turkey bacon chopped

1 tbsp butter

4 slices thin ham, chopped

1/2 bunch scallions (4-5 stalks), sliced thin

5 eggs

1 cup half-and-half

1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese

1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees; prick pie shell on bottom and sides and bake pie shell 8-10 minutes

2) Spread mushrooms on baking sheet and bake in oven 10-15 minutes until golden brown; remove from oven and set aside

3) While mushrooms are baking, in large skillet over medium-high heat, fry bacon pieces until just beginning to crisp; reduce heat to medium, add butter and, when melted, toss in ham and scallions; cook 4-5 minutes; remove from heat and set aside

4) Add eggs and half-and-half to a medium bowl and whisk to combine; stir in mushrooms, bacon-ham-scallion mixture, Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses, and salt and pepper

5) Pour egg mixture into prepared pie shell; to prevent quiche from getting too brown, loosely place a sheet of aluminum foil over top (I forgot to do this) and bake at 400 degrees 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (if you use aluminum foil, remove during last 10 minutes of baking for a lightly browned top)

6) Allow quiche to set 10 minutes before serving (makes it easier to cut)

Servings: 4
