Bacon & Cheese Quiche

Looks delicious, doesn't it!

Even though the weather here is still cold and snowy, tonight, I chose to go light a little lighter with a Bacon & Cheese Quiche, with Roasted Rosemary Potatoes & Salad.

Here's what you need to make a Bacon & Cheese Quiche
(I did cheat a little and used a premade pastry crust)
1 packet of Bacon
1 Cup of Cheddar Cheese
2 Onions
4 Large Eggs
1 cup of Heavy Cream
1 Cup of Milk
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Pepper
1 Tsp of Italian Seasoning
Pinch of Nutmeg
Preheat Oven 425 Deg

Line your pan with your pastry and cover with foil.
 Bake in Oven for 10 mins, then take it out and set aside. 
Turn the Oven down to 325 Deg.

Dice onions and saute in a pan until slightly browned.

Cook the bacon.

Layer some cheese first, then add bacon and onions, then finish with the cheese.

Measure the cream, milk, and eggs into a jug and whisk, add the seasonings and stir well.

Pour Cream/milk/egg mixture over the Quiche.
(I used a smaller pan this time and I had some egg mixture left over, so I poured it into a greased dish)

Place in oven and bake for about 40 mins.
To test poke a wooden toothpick into the middle and if it comes out clean, your quiche is cooked.

Now, while the quiche is cooking, I made some easy and quick Rosemary Roasted Potatoes.
Potatoes, Cut into chunks.
Sea Salt
Olive Oil

Drizzle Olive Oil over the potatoes, sprinkle the Rosemary and Salt/pepper over and toss
Until each potato is coated. Pop in the oven to cook. 

Check your Quiche, once the pick comes out clean and its nice and golden brown take it out and let it sit and cool for ten minutes.

                 And here you have a delightful light dinner of

Bacon & Cheese Quiche
With Roasted Rosemary and Olive Oil Potatoes and a Dollop of  Sour Cream and Chive Dip

Enjoy, I know we did :)

*To Make the Sour Cream Chive Dip*

2 Cups of Sour Cream
1 Cup of Mayonise
Dash of Malt Vinegar 
3 Overflowing Tablespoons of Chives 
(You can use Dried chives if you don't have fresh)
Salt and Pepper to Taste.

*Mix everything together in a bowl and pop in the fridge till you're ready to use*
