Truth be told, I don’t even really like quiche. Because it’s made with so many eggs, which I find gross, especially because they’re baked and usually overdone. Nothing worse than overdone eggs. Blech.
But! I was watching FoodNetwork (per usual) and Trisha Yearwood was making this Country Quiche and for some reason I thought, why not?!
I changed the recipe up a lot though. I don’t like cooked tomatoes, so I omitted those from the recipe and just added cut up cherry tomatoes to our plates right before serving. It was good to have a fresh raw veggie (fruit!) with the baked quiche.
I also used chicken sausage instead of pork. And I used two less eggs. Oh and added some cut up bell peppers (red) and a jalapeno pepper for good measure. I love the way it turned out! I’ve made it a few times now, sometimes making my own pie crust and other times buying one from Whole Foods. The premade crust is obviously easier, but the homemade crust tastes really great!
Whatever you do, add a lot of cheese, it’s luscious!
