egg pie


I have been hungry for quiche for a month or so. 
 I haven't made quiche in years because the last time I made it, it was down right nasty. 
I made the last one with tuna...blech.  That was my first mistake!
This time I was pleasantly surprised. 


The picture above is:

6 eggs
1 cup of milk
6 ounces of shredded cheese, i had Colby/monterray jack on hand
8 slices of bacon, i cooked them in the broiler...no frying = easy.
salt and pepper
2 chives, cleaned and chopped
3 heaping spoon fulls of sour cream




I had all the yummy stuff in a bowl ready to go and I needed a crust.

I tweeted about it, and one of my twitter/blog friends came to my rescue!
Oh how I love twitter and all the friends I have made through tweeting.

Thanks a million Ams!

The crust you see above is:

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of cold water

I just mixed those four things into a bowl and then pressed into a pie plate.
Yes, it was that easy, and then I topped it with the egg mixture!

I baked it for 45 minutes in a 375 degree oven.



Look at that wonderful color.  I love lightly browned cheese.
And bacon makes everything better.


And the inside is so eggy and cheesy and bacony.  All mixed together it just sings in your mouth.

Anyway...

I gave the kids a slice for dinner that night, fresh from the oven. 

Layla said, "This is the best egg pie I think I have ever had."  Oh how I love that girl. 
She does wonders for my ego when it comes to cooking. I am so happy that my kids will eat almost anything. 

So, I am calling this quiche egg pie.

Why am I just getting to this now?
I am going to blame it on me being out of town - but YAY! I am so glad that it was THAT easy. I am going to attempt this for dinner tomorrow night and I can't WAIT!!!!!
I am so glad that the crust was so easy too...
