Real Men Make Quiche

My husband makes the best quiches. This is one of my favorite recipes he cooks for me. He takes a store bought deep dish pie crust. Pokes it with a fork and pre-bakes the crust according to package directions. He places aluminum foil around the edges of the pie crust so they will not over cook or burn.
He sautés 2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons bell pepper
1/2 cup mushrooms
in a small skillet until the onions and pepper are tender.
Then he mixes 3 large eggs
8 ounces of sour cream
5 slices of crisp cooked bacon
 1 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
and the sautéed veggies together.
Pours into the pie crust.
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until set.
The above information is for his regular quiche. But, for the quiche in these photos he used one can of drained spinach instead of the mushrooms and used Mexican cheese instead of Swiss and cheddar. In the past he has used cooked sausage instead of bacon. He has added jalapeno peppers instead of bell peppers. So, the bottom line is you can change the recipe to what you like to eat. This can also be refrigerated and then warmed in the microwave. This is one of the wonderful weekend meals he makes while I am blogging! He is awesome and I am thankful that he loves to cook!!!


  1. I love quiche! I haven't made it with sour cream - can't wait to try! I have made it without the crust to save calories! Just spray the pan with cooking spray to keep it from sticking.

  2. Loooks too yummy! Now I am hungry!!
