It's really hard to mess up a quiche, and I've been making them for so long, a lot of the proportions just get eyeballed. This quiche was a little different in that I made raw ice cream first, which meant I had a ton of egg whites on hand. Typically, I freeze the whites and give them to my dad as a "gift" to make angel food cake when I go back home (really a gift for me, haha)! But, I opted to use them in this since they were handy and fresh. I didn't want an all-egg-white quiche, so I added a few more whole eggs. Typically, I only use whole eggs when making quiche. Anyways, it's a great way to have a protein packed breakfast on hand, and even quicker with leftovers.
Here's how I made it:
8 pieces of leftover (cooked) bacon
1 half red bell pepper - I bought this the night before and misunderstood the store signs, I thought it was 2.99/pound...turns out it was $2.99 each! Yikes...so I made sure to use it right away so it didn't go bad, haha. Have you ever been there?!
Manchego cheese - I shredded about 1 cup and layered it on top
Fermented white pepper - a couple twists of the grinder
Heavy cream - I typically use milk, but I had ~1/4 cup leftover from the ice cream making as well, so I just used it since it was readily available. Plus, it helped to have a little more fat since it didn't have as many yolks as usual
Pullet egg whites (8) + pullet eggs (3) - new post on the magical pullet eggs coming soon!
Flowering hyssop thyme - a pinch
Cayenne - a dash
Whisk the eggs & whites with spices (cayenne, mSalt, thyme) + heavy cream
Place bacon & bell pepper in bottom of dish
Pour egg mix on top
Top with cheese
Bake at 350 convection for approximately 35 minutes (it usually puffs up when cooking before it falls, then I can insert a fork in the middle coming out clean)
It was SO tasty! It was big enough that we were able to enjoy it for breakfast for a couple days. What's your favorite quiche ingredient? Tell me in the comments!
