Quiche is not something I have a lot of experience making. For some reason I always thought it was really hard to make. In actuality, if you cheat just a little bit with store-bought crust, a quiche is one of the easiest things to make. The possibilities of the filling are practically endless. For this recipe, I decided to use thick cut bacon, kale and goat cheese.
A few Saturdays ago, I was wide awake and Kellan and Ryan were sound asleep. I decided to take that moment to go down to the kitchen, turn on my Mad Men pandora station and make my family a quiche. It was the first time I attempted one. And despite not knowing exactly what I was doing in the begining, it was one of the most relaxing mornings in a while.
As I hummed along to the crooning of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, I scoured my refrigerator for ingredients to add to my quiche. I had some thick cut bacon, some curly kale and some herb and garlic goat cheese. Those are three of my favorite things so I knew they would be great together.
After cooking the bacon, the quiche came together very quickly. I layered the ingredients in the pie crust, poured the eggs over the top and popped it in the oven. 45 minutes later it was done, my boys were awake and we were ready to start our day with a freshly baked, scrumptious quiche. What a way to start a weekend!
