A couple of months ago Kalina came and told me she wanted to learn to make quiche. Never one to stand in my kids’ way (and always one to hate cooking) I was more than happy to accommodate her. She quickly mastered a basic quiche recipe and we have been having it almost every Sunday evening since then. Recently we decided to experiment a bit and add our own twist to our Sunday night quiche. Two favorites we have come up with are: Bacon Onion Ring Quiche and Vegetarian Sweet Potato Quiche. Using all natural Alexia Onion Rings and Sweet Potato Fries, makes this dish a breeze.
One thing that I love about quiche (besides the fact that I’m not making it) is that it only calls for a few simple ingredients. I was able to purchase everything I needed, including the frozen Sweet Potato Fries and Onion Rings at Walmart. Alexia products are high quality and all natural which makes them a great addition to our table. I think the new Rosemary and Sea Salt Fries would be great in the vegetarian quiche as well if your family isn’t sure about sweet potatoes.
Use a cup or biscuit cutter to cut out crust for quiche. Put pie crust circles not muffin tin.
Place one (still frozen) onion ring in each mini crust.
Combine: eggs, cheese, and cream in a separate bowl and pour into each muffin cup.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top and bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are cooked.
The mini-quiches should pop right out of the muffin pan. Each bite has a delicious onion ring hidden inside and sprinkled with crumbled bacon. It doesn’t get much better than that!. They can be eaten as a finger food and are perfect for a brunch or potluck.
[yumprint-recipe id=’2′]The other Quiche variation we have been enjoying is Vegetarian Sweet Potato Quiche. Adding the Alexia Sweet Potato Fries gives it a hearty flavor without meat. I have a funny relationship with sweet potatoes…Two years ago I couldn’t stand them. Then all of a sudden, one day, they sounded slightly appealing. A friend served them for dinner soon after that and I found them delicious. Now, they are one of my favorite foods. Crazy.
Vegetarian Sweet Potato Quiche is made the same as Bacon Onion Ring Quiche. Just used half a bag of Alexia Sweet Potato Fries (still frozen but chopped) and bake in a pie pan for 40-45 minutes.
