Martha Mondays - Maple-Bacon Quiche

This week's Martha Monday project was chosen by Pru at Perfecting Pru . She chose Martha's Maple-Bacon-Quiche . I make quiche quite often so I was thrilled to try a different one.

Bacon is always good, but you want to make sure it's not too soggy. I like crispy bacon, and sprinkling it on top made it stay crisp! I am not a big fan of savory dishes that are sweet, so I did cut down on the amount of maple syrup that I used in this. Although I am getting used to using Mirin in my Tamagoyaki - Japanese Rolled Omelet. Of course my maple syrup is from Michigan! A gift from my sister.

I used shallots because that's what I had on hand. I didn't make Martha's Pate Brisee it seem to have a lot of butter for one crust so I made my pie crust from my grandma's recipe. It has always worked well. I usually use 4 eggs and cheese in my quiche so it didn't fill it up like mine does. Other than ended up with more crust than we're used to, but it was good.

We all liked it, it had a nice flavor blend. I sprinkled some finishing sea salt on top right before serving it.
We've had a busy few days with my sister and niece in town visiting, and we are finally getting back to normal temperatures. I had to work today and Wade had Mondays off so he went jet skiing with them all. I got home and started the quiche and it was ready when he got home. He deserved it taking the time to fix up the jet ski for them to use and driving up to Coquina Beach. Now is the count down until spring break!
