  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded flavorful cheese (Swiss, gouda, cheddar, etc)

  • 2

More About This Recipe

  • I've come to realize something. Most people love a good quiche but rarely make it themselves. Why is that? It looks too time-consuming? Too difficult? They don't own an official "quiche pan" and think they can't make quiche without it? Whatever the reason, it's time to de-bunk a few myths. 1) Prep time is like 10 minutes max. That = quick! 2) You slap down some premade Pillsbury pie crust (p-p-p...it's all about the "p's", baby), chop up a leek, fry a little bacon, beat a few eggs, open up a can of tomatoes, shred a little cheese, and slide it in the oven. That = easy! 3) Everyone owns a pie pan. That = you can make quiche, too! So all that = quick, easy and accessible. And did I already mention this is a BLT-packed quiche? Enjoy!
