Apple, Cheddar, and Bacon Quiche
Fresh apple pairs perfectly with Cheddar cheese, bacon, and sage in this easy, brunch-ready, homemade quiche.
This was fantastic. My alterations: 1) used a deep dish pie crust (pre-baked according to package instructions); 2) replaced 1/2 cup of milk with heavy cream (because I happened to have some extra on hand); 3) used an entire package of pre-cooked bacon (about 15 strips) and threw a little extra butter into the pan to cook the onions and apples with; 4) a little bit of salt went in with the onion to sweat it; 5) added the sage to the egg mixture instead of sprinkling it on at the end. Also, I didn't actually measure the amount of cheese I used. As they say, "You measure that sh!t with your heart." Things I'd do differently next time: for the egg mixture, start with the sour cream and add the milk a little bit at a time to keep it from getting lumpy, and then whisk in the eggs and salt/spices. Otherwise, this was PERFECT.
I substituted a pound of Jamestown mild sausage (browned and well drained) for the bacon and omitted the cinnamon. A definite keeper! Perfect for a hearty brunch.
I think the apples made it too watery. I left it in the oven longer hoping the juice would evaporate. It did no good just got juicier. The eggs were very loose as well. If i make this again I'm gonna modify it........a lot!
I omitted the cinnamon becauseit does not flavor blend with sage. The prebake on the pie crust led it to be overcooked. I will make a riff on this recipe in the future but not going to make again.
This is an easy, delicious quiche that will take no time to prepare and your friends will ask for the recipe! I have made this for numerous office gatherings and everyone raves about it!
