Bakin’ with Bacon and King Teddy

Standard

Your King of Bacon is here with another delicious bacon-ized recipe!

Who doesn’t like quiche?   I see no hands raised in the crowd – so you must be on the same page as my Mom and me – quiche is a wonderful meal no matter what time of day you have it.    This one is TRULY simple – not a lot of ingredients – but one of the most important ingredients is – BACON!

So roll up your sleeves – put on your apron and let’s do this!

Bacon and Swiss Quiche

 

Ingredients

One 9-inch frozen pie crust – thawed

1-3/4 pounds sliced bacon (or use the whole danged thing!)

3 eggs lightly beaten

1-12 oz. can evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard

1/4 teaspoon ground nutbeg

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

 

Directions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prick bottom and sides of pie crust and bake 10 minutes, until lightly brown; set aside to cool.
  2. Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, mustard and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss bacon with flour to lightly coat. Spread 3/4 bacon mixture and Swiss cheese over bottom of pie crust. Pour egg mixture over bacon mixture. Top with remaining bacon mixture.
  4. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a fork inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Absolutely!  No doubt about it – this is beyond yummy in the tummy!

Anyone who can’t have bacon – just FYI this is really good with chopped chicken, or ham, or even some of your favorite vegetables (suggest sauteeing them first though to soften).   It’s pretty much an all around quiche recipe but this one focuses on having a LOT of bacon in it which is our favorite thing here.

Tee Hee!!

So what are you waiting for?   Add this stuff to your grocery list or even better – go to the grocery now!   This would be a super meal for your family (or you) tonight!

Bacon makes my world go ’round!   

Hugs, King Teddy

Before I go, I just learned this morning that one of our good and dear friends has flown to the Rainbow Bridge while lying in his Dad’s arms.   Buddy Budd just turned 20 and was the Grandpa at TimmyTomcat blog looking after Dad Pete and the other kitties for many years.   You can click HERE to leave a message for them.   Buddy Budd was definitely one of a kind…………he will be missed.

Bakin’ in Baconia for Easter

Standard

Easter and Passover Greetings My Fellow Baconians!

It’s me – your King of Baconia who enjoys spending time in his Castle Kitchen on Saturday morning whipping up some kind of bacon-related treat for his loyal subject – YOU!    Today I am giving you another EASY one – perfect for Easter morning……..and yes it’s a BREAKFAST item yet again but it’s totally cool because while it’s a QUICHE it requires NO CRUST!    Not only that but it’s QUICK to make.

 

Quickie Quiche

Ingredients:

8 slices bacon

4 oz. shredded swiss cheese

2 Tablespooons melted butter

4 eggs beaten

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 Teaspoon salt

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1-1/2 cups milk

Directions:

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
  3. Line bottom of pie plate with cheese and crumbled bacon. Combine eggs, butter, onion, salt, flour and milk; whisk together until smooth; pour into pie pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, until set. Serve hot or cold

The other cool thing is you really can add WHATEVER ELSE you might want to this quiche and it just makes it better……….little bit of cooked broccoli maybe?   Even things like cooked shrimp chopped up?    Why not add whatever you want………….it’s such a simple recipe you just can’t go wrong.    I particularly love that you don’t need to make a crust or BUY a crust.

WE LIKE EASY – DON’T YOU? 

How about some Easter fun before you leave the Castle Kitchen this morning????    I’m embarrassed to say that my Bunny name is (GULP):

Trixy Carrot Cake

Not very “mancatly” is it……..and certainly since I’m royalty I suppose it would be KING TRIXY but something about that is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO wrong!

All of us at Castle Baconia wish you a wonderful Easter or Passover

Have a blessed holiday my friends………Love, King Teddy
