quiche experiment

for my own reference, may rewrite significantly depending how it turns out.

Categories: cooking, General

in case it turns out either really well or really badly (it’s in the oven now)

some weird hybrid of these recipes:

abt 1 lb super-cheap bacon, cook, cool slightly, chop in little pieces

2 c spinach, washed, chopped — saute in a bit of bacon fat, drain water, cool a bit, then squish out the rest with hands

pie pastry – bake 7 min at 425F

put 1/3 c feta & a couple of handfuls shredded cheddar in the pie pan

spinach on top of the cheese

bacon on top of the spinach

beat three eggs w/1c cream, pour over the top. realize that isn’t enough; beat 1 egg with few splashes of whole milk. go look at 1st recipe, realize ratio is all wrong, beat up one more egg and sort of mix it in the pan.

bake at 425 for 15 min; sprinkle a bit more shredded cheese on top; then 350 for 10 minutes (well, so far it’s more like 15) until set. (which hasn’t happened yet)

    Note 1: tasted good, but not 100% cooked in the center. 🙁 a couple min longer at 425?
