Trying New Things: Day 13


Day 13: Quiche

Up until a few month ago when my sister-in-law mentioned making it, I had no idea what quiche even was.  I blame my mom.  (Sorry, mom.)

So, I decided to make one, because after they were explained to me, they sounded interesting. I modified this recipe and even though I’m not a pie crust fan, this bad boy was pretty stinking delicious.


  • 1 – 9 inch frozen pie shell
  • 1/2 lb sausage (I used Jimmy Dean maple flavor)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup fat free half and half
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Bake shell @ 425 for about 7 minutes.
  2. While shell is baking, cook sausage in a skillet. Dice red pepper and add to sausage.
  3. Mix sausage and cheese together; add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spread the mixture in the bottom of the pie shell.
  5. Whisk together eggs, half and half and milk together and pour mixture over sausage. Bake on baking sheet for 20 minutes.
  6. Reduce oven temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

The girls hated it; no surprise there.  My children are the pickiest eaters known to man, but I think if I had left out the bell pepper Mad would have eaten it.  There’s pretty much no hope for Susannah.

Do you like quiche?  When’s the last time you learned about a dish you’d never heard of before? Please tell me I’m not the only one.

  1. We love Quiche in our house. I do leave out things like peppers and onions cause of my kids. But they just now like eggs.

  2. I mentioned it to Chris and we are going to try it sans the red peppers. I would eat them but he wont. Neither one of my boys will eat eggs and of course Jared doesn’t like meat or melted cheese so….. it will be a uh-hem “manly” quiche for two.

    Oh and to answer your question at the end of your post. I’ve heard some friends talking about Falafels. Apparently that is Indian food. I never did make it down to try that but it is on my list. And if you don’t know, because I didn’t either, it kinda rhymes with waffles. Fall-awfuls. I’m really glad I didn’t go and order some fal uh fells.
