Loaded Potato Crustless Quiche with Bacon, Cheese & Onions
By the time you read this, I will be snoozing on the TGV on my way up to Lille to catch the Eurostar back to the UK……..but, all is well, as I will still be benefiting from an extra hour in bed, as the clocks went back yesterday, and that “extra hour in bed feeling” carries on for a few days, with lighter mornings although the evenings are darker earlier. So, I am scheduling this to go live before I leave; it’s my latest recipe for the big reveal day for The Secret Recipe Club. This is how it works – each month, one member is assigned to another member from their group secretly (hence the name). That person selects a recipe (or more) to make, photograph, and then will draft up a blog post. Everyone in the group posts on the same Monday together and gets to see who had their blog and what recipe(s) they chose. It’s a fun experience and it’s also a great way to get new followers and meet new people……..and today’s recipe for Loaded Potato Crustless Quiche comes courtesy of Jaime from Mom’s Test Kitchen.
You can meet Jaime yourself by popping over to her About Me Page, where she tells you all about her family as well as her love for Fried Pickles and Pinterest! I am not sure how she manages it , but she also has two other blogs here My Favorite Finds and here The Mommy Blog Hoppers.……..whilst perusing her site for a recipe to make, here a few that caught my eye, including the famous Fried Pickles! I was tempted with Spiced Apple French Toast, Avocado Ranch Breakfast Quesadillas, Smoky BLT Stuffed Avocados with Bacon Ranch Dressing, Almond Cake Cookies with Cinnamon Spice Glaze and Bacon Cornbread. But, it was Jaime’s Loaded Potato Crustless Quiche that I finally decided to make, mainly due the fact that I had lots of eggs available (from my chickens – Mavis, Gertie and Blanche), and this is a crustless flan, so easy to make and lower on calories…….and oh yes, it has BACON in it as well as CHEESE!
I had to adapt Jaime’s original recipe from US cups to Metric measurements, and, I also had to substitute some ingredients that aren’t available in France or the UK, namely frozen “Potatoes O’Brien” (fried potatoes with red and green peppers) I also used smoked lardons in place of streaky bacon…….but, the basic recipe concept is still the same, and we both loved this tasty cheese and bacon concoction! As you can see from my photos, I took the advantage of serving this simple luncheon recipe on some of my Churchill China plates; as regular readers will know I am an ambassador for The Caravan Trail, and the plates I used are part of the Penzance range, a beautiful blue and white pattern that echoes folk art through fauna and flora.
My adapted recipe is shared below and I do hope you will enjoy it if you make it. That’s all for today, I’ll be back in a few days with a FABULOUS recipe for Spiced Runner Bean Pickle as well as a Sticky Carrot & Pomegranate Molasses recipe later on in the week, see you then, Karen
