Cooked the green onion in the bacon grease and drained it; added a tad of garlic and used evaporated milk rather than cream. I made two, and used cheddar and colby in one and mozz and blue cheese in the other. This was absolutely delicious! I even put a link on facebook!!
Super health conscious, so I lightened this up. Used no oil for the green onions, sauteed on a teflon pan instead. Removed an egg and used milk instead of cream and less cheese. Added white pepper. Was a big hit at the table served with an endive salad.
This is a great recipe!! No need to saute the green onions in oil at all. They taste wonderful when you cook the bacon in the microwave, dice and then throw that and the green onions in the bottom of the pie shell and pour egg mixture on top. Saves time! I love quiche because you can substitute for ingredients you have on hand.
I didn't use the extra oil either, but wish I had. The bacon grease was a bit "gritty and brown" for the green onions, I thought. All in all though, I thought the recipe was great. I used cheddar this time, will try swiss or a combo mix next time. Use milk instead of cream. The mustard and nutmeg worked for me! All in all, we thought it was great!
i didn't use extra oil for the onions instead i cooked them in the same pan the bacon was in. i also omitted the nutmeg and used milk instead of cream and it was still wonderful tasting!
This was really yummy. I did saute the onions in the bacon grease instead of oil, I didn't see the need to use oil when that was already there. I used 1/4 cup reg onion and 1/4 cup red onion, since I had no green onions. I also used more salt and pepper and added oregano since I am pregnant and the thought of mustard and nutmeg made me ill! It was still very good and something light for my poor belly! Thanks!
I really appreciated this recipe when I needed something for supper at the last minute! I ended up making it into a crustless quiche, but it was very good that way too. I did add more salt and pepper; that's just me! I was pleasantly surprised how well the dry mustard and nutmeg went together. Thanks for helping me out in a pinch!
