I made some new smoked bacon last week and of course I look for ways that I can make things with it.
First I made a savory pie crust. Start at the bottom and build up, right? Everyone knows how to do a pie crust, so I won't bore you. Or you can buy one also... its up to you.
So here's the recipe:
Cajun Quiche ~ Foamheart
|8 slices||Homemade Smokey Bacon Crumbled|
|1 1/2 cup||cheddar cheese Smoked|
|1/3 cup||onion minced|
|2 cups||heavy cream|
|Salt & Pepper|
|1 pinch||Fresh nutmeg|
|2 tablespoons||red bell peppers Minced|
|3 thin slices||Homemade thin sliced Ham Minced|
|1/2 teaspoon||Tony's "More" Seasoning|
|1 each||9" Savory Pie Shell|
|Preheat 425 degrees|
Make savory 9" pie crust.
Add bacon, add some cheese, add ham, add some cheese, add onions, add some cheese, add bell peppers, and add some cheese building the height in the pie while maintaining the air in the ingredients.
Add seasoning and tabasco to beaten eggs and cream and gently pour over the ingredients in the pie shell.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20 mins, then reduce to 325 without opening the door for another 45 mins.
Check doneness, and allow to completely cool, plus 10 more mins.
Note: Its an excellent medium to show off fresh veggies like broccolli or asparagus, just remember to K.I.S.S.
I wish I took better pictures. Anyway, I will try and get a Bear View tomorrow at lunch.
