Default Manly q(uiche)

That's right. I made some manly 'que tonight... I made me a quiche!

The goal was to use up a bunch of stuff in the fridge - a pie crust leftover form when my sister made some pies, some crumbled feta from pizza night, a bunch of spinach, some random sundried tomatoes and other odds and ends.

I tried to make a healthy quiche, so started with some turkey bacon (from the back of the freezer) in the CI skillet, with some olive oil and fresh cracked pepper:


Next sauteed 1 chopped leek and 1 chopped up fennel bulb. Added a few cloves of garlic too:



Wilted the spinach:


And mixed it all together to let it get friendly for a bit:



Then it was time to blind bake the pie crust. Fired up the egg to about 375°F and let it go for about 10mins.
\

Mixed up 1 cup of 1%milk and 3 eggs ( I like my quiche eggy - the recipe called for 2), with salt, pepper, cayenne, and cumin. Added the veggie mix to the pie dish. Poured the egg and milk mix on top then finished decorating the quiche. i'm a big believer in quiche art, so it has to look nice. This may not have been my best effort, but it used up the tomato and bell pepper I found.


In the LBGE at 375-400°F for about 50mins or so until the quiche set up nicely. Forgot to add the feta scraps into the mix so they got sprinkled on top because i was determined to use them up


The taste of this quiche was very good, but surprising. The flavors blended together in a very balanced savory way. I thought the fennel would stand out but it didn't, which was good. The cumin came through well, and i'm glad I added it.

Turned out to be a great dinner, somewhat different from what we usually eat. and it was much healthier than most quiche recipes - no butter, no cream, no real bacon, very little cheese. I know - i left out all the fun stuff.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Looks great!

Did you use any smoking wood and were you able to taste it in the pie?

I'll have to try that sometime. Sounds like a good pairing.

I didn't add any wood this time. I though it would pick up some smoke flavor just from the lump charcoal (used a blend of oak and mesquite), but it was just a hint of smoke flavor. I might try adding some smoking wood next time.

Nice job except for that nasty turkey bacon. If you've ever seen how it's made you would never put it in your mouth. Then again same goes for most hotdogs I guess. Other than that looks great.
