Alas, none of these lessons really took with me at the time. But one very invaluable lesson I learned from my Cosmopolitan magazines was how to make the most fabulous quiche ever. I think quiche is one of those dishes that comes in and out of favor and whenever I make one I think to myself "why don't I make this more often?" It covers so many yummy food bases: eggs, bacon, veggies, cheese, half and half and it is very easy to make if you go with the pre-made pie crust. So with that, I share with you my all time favorite quiche recipe.Cosmopolitan Quiche
1 9 inch deep dish frozen pie crust (Prebake for 10 minutes at 375 deg)
1 1/2 cups half and half
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
8 slices bacon
1 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese
1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and wrung out of extra moisture
1/4 cup finely diced onion
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fry bacon, drain and crumble. Saute onion until lightly browned.
Beat eggs, half and half and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. After pie crust is pre-baked, put bacon and onions on bottom of crust, then spinach, then grated cheese. Carefully pour egg/cream mixture over the top. Place unbaked quiche on a cookie sheet (in case of spills) and bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
