Quarantine Quiche!

Have y’all noticed how many people do not know how to spell “quarantine” since covid became a thing? Yea, me too.

I am not immune to living the quarantine life of limited grocery items as well as limited grocery trips. We order groceries once per week and I will give major props to our usual store, Raleys as it has been weeks now since a LARGE amount of items I ordered were not able to be filled. Watch I jinx myself now, but in all seriousness, in my weekly order they maybe cannot fill 2-3 items at this point. When the shelter in place first started it was literally about 50% of our order not being filled — I think the hoarding has gotten slightly better! I just wish people would hoard dumb shit that I don’t care about like like lettuce or shrimp. We’ll survive.

This recipe started the same way 98.9% of my recipes do which is out of nowhere, throwing shit together for a few weeks until I feel confident a real “recipe” has been mastered. The good thing about quiche – put whatever the heck you want it! I will probably judge you for some items, but you’ll never know! Everything in the below recipe I have been able to find in the grocery on the regular – if your state or city is hoarding some of the below items – sorry!

Ingredients

  • 12 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Cream Cheese
  • 6 Strips of Bacon Cubed
  • 1/2 Yellow onion
  • 5 Cloves of garlic
  • Roasted Red Peppers (Jarred)
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Red Chili Flakes
  • 1/4 Cup cubed Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Avocado Sliced
  • Lime Juice
  • Frying Pan
  • Casserole Dish
  • Oven

How To:

  1. Hope you know how to whisk eggs! Crack your 12 eggs into a large bowl – this is where your salt/pepper/red chili flake come into play. Set to the side.
  2. In a frying pan over medium heat cook your bacon, onion, garlic, and butter all together. I cooked the bacon until it was crispy!
  3. Oil your casserole dish, pour your WHISKED eggs in and then pour your bacon/onion/garlic in with them. I did wait 5 minutes for the bacon to cool slightly and dumped as much grease as I could. Bacon fat never hurt anyone.
  4. Here is where creativity comes into play! I dolloped the cream cheese all over the casserole (just take a spoon and little bits of cream cheese) – if you are being weird about cream cheese in your eggs stop it, woman up, and do it.
  5. Sprinkle your roasted red peppers and tomatoes all over the top.
  6. Cheese! Add all your cheeses!!
  7. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees in your oven.
  8. Broil for one minute once finished for that crispy top.
  9. Plate with sliced avocado with some lime and salt.
  10. Nothing better – enjoy your quarantine.
