Monday night after a heated debate that ended in a coin flip, I tried to make quiche for the first time instead of getting Chinese. I know, quite the different options.
I got this recipe off the internet after searching for what I can make with what I have in my fridge. Sometimes I find myself going and buying food when I have tons of stuff in my fridge. I also really need to use up these eggs before they go bad.
I mixed the egg, milk, salt, and cheddar together while I also cooked the bacon. Then while waiting for the bacon to cool I made up the dough. I’ve never really made dough by scratch and it turned out quite crumbly. I was super unsure of how thick to make the cups. I figured when I bit into my quiche that I didn’t want a mouthful of dough so I opted for a bit thinner of walls. Still only made 8 cups even though the recipe said I’d have enough to do 9 regular muffins size ones.
Of course I forgot to preheat the oven so I covered my dough so it wouldn’t dry out too much while I waited. Tossed the pan in for 5 minutes then took it out and waited for it to cool. I can follow instructions! Well except I wasn’t feeling the onion so I didn’t put any in.
The egg mixture really didn’t look like it was going to be enough to be honest while it was in the bowl, but it did fill the 8 cups fairly decently.
So I popped it in the oven for the 20 minutes at 350. I kept and eye on it since I didn’t know if my cups were too thick or thin and how it would impact the cooking of it. To be honest I had a few “I don’t know what I’m doing” moments on this one.
They came out fairly decent, very breakfast tasting of course. I think I’d like to try some other combinations or filler.
Also yes, I needed to go even thinner on the shell. It didn’t cook quite all the way through and you still got too much dough in a bite. I don’t think that my filler would be enough to fill the extra cups made by making the shells thinner. I thought they tasted pretty good, but my bf liked them quite a bit. His only criticism was the amount of dough, which I will make adjustments for. I may even try just buying dough, though this recipe was really easy.
