The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 162 & 163

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Sorry I missed another night last night, just wasn’t up for it for some reason.  Besides, I didn’t cook, I picked up chicken strips from Walmart.

Anyway, I was sort of jealous that William got his glasses the other night, and then I got the call last night that mine were in, too!  I was so excited!  Got new glasses, something completely different than what I’ve had the past few years, getting used to them, SO happy to be able to see so well!!  Gotta go back in a month or so and maybe get computer only glasses, but then these seem to be working out OK, so maybe not, we’ll see.

After the last two nights of frozen foods and pre-cooked foods, I decided I really needed to cook tonight, so here’s what we had:

 

Broccoli Bacon Quiche

1 Frozen deep dish pie crust

6 eggs

1 cup half & half

1 cup shredded cheese of choice

1 cup broccoli florets

1/2 pound cooked crisp bacon pieces

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place pie shell in foil pan on cookie sheet.

Put broccoli, bacon and cheese in pie crust.  Mix together eggs, cream and spices, pour into pie shell.  Bake 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350 degrees, cook 35-40 minutes, or until puffy and toasty brown on top.

Allow to cool about 10 minutes, slice into wedges and serve.

 

Bacon and Cheese Quiche

1 Frozen deep dish pie crust

6 eggs

1 cup half & half

1/2 cup shredded cheese of choice

2-3 slices cheddar cheese

1/2 pound cooked crisp bacon pieces

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place pie shell in foil pan on cookie sheet.

Put bacon and cheese in pie crust.  Mix together eggs, cream and spices, pour into pie shell.  Bake 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350 degrees, cook 35-40 minutes, or until puffy and toasty brown on top.

Allow to cool about 10 minutes, slice into wedges and serve.

This makes great leftovers the next day, if you have any left.  I usually make two pies when I make these, one with veggies and one without, so everyone gets something they like, and I get lunch the next day.

So, friends, until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
