Yummy breakfast.

The kids were home today for Veteran's day, so I made a quiche.  The recipe is called Refrigerator Pie from Alton Brown.  I love it because I can use any old thing I have laying around.

This one was made with bacon, onions and cheddar cheese.  The crust is homemade with whole wheat flour and half butter, half home rendered lard.  Yummy!

I love quiche. Whole wheat crust is not always easy to work with, so good job on using whole wheat.

Meemsnyc, thanks!

Sense of home, thanks, the whole wheat does make a shorter crust. It tastes so nutty, that I don't really mind.

I love quiche! And I'd love to know what your ww dough recipe is!

The Mom said...

Joanna, I use white whole wheat that I grind myself.

It's 1 cup WW flour
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup lard
1/2 cup butter
1 t salt
3-5 T ice water

I love quiche. I made a lot this spring but haven't made one yet this fall. I think I have to get soup out of my system first.

The Mom said...

Tami, I hope you enjoy it!

Daphne, I thought about soup, but the quiche sounded awfully good today.

Quiche is such a yummy meal and a great way to use up some extra eggs from the hens! I feel inspired to make one this coming weekend.
