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 that...it 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!
Make sure to check out the others, I am!

    It was nice trying a different quiche, I wouldn't have thought to put maple syrup in it, but it does go well with the bacon!

    I don't care for savory dishes that are too sweet either, but it sounds like you have the right balance here. And the crisp bacon on top is perfect; my husband will love this!

  17. I am so pleased that you tried the recipe Lyndsey. We also had ours with salad. I think next time I will adjust the amount of maple syrup, but then with the eggs and cream I think it is always one to have when not calorie counting!

  21. Pam,
    The maple syrup does seem to compliment the bacon well.

    Sam,
    Thank you, It's nice to meet you too. We seem to have a few friends in common! It was my pleasure to visit your blog, it such a nice place to see!

    Erica,
    Oh yes bacon is good, and thanks!

    Lynda,
    My husband liked it and would of enjoyed it with the full sweetness!

    TKW,
    Well yeah, bacon!!!

    Gulmohar,
    Thanks, quiche is wonderful and a good way to use things up in the frige! Just add eggs, milk and cheese!

    Pru,
    Good choice it was fun to make! You can always slim it down with milk and....I don't know and egg beater?

    Kathleen,
    Thank you!Yes you can't go wrong with bacon!

    Bo,
    The maple syrup did bring it up a notch! Hmm...I wonder what else I can add next time?

  23. Super quiche recipe. I love them. But usually fall back on the old fashioned kind. Adding maple syrup is a nice idea and of course, Michigan syrup is the best! You were smart to use a pie crust recipe you liked and I always am adjusting ingredients too. This turned out really well!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lyndsey yours is so.. pretty! Seriously, you got the pretty fluting on the edges of the crust and the colour of the egg is just right. I'm so glad this worked out well for you even though I threw my copy of the recipe in the garbage ;o)

    Thanks for your sweet comments today :)

  25. Thanks Barbara! My dad even tapped our maple tree one year when we were kids. It was very interesting to see how much sap is used to make the suryp!
    I always adjust recipes a little to suit the way I like things (not that I'm improving on a recipe). My grandma was a fantastic baker!

    Sarah,
    Thank you, you're so kind! My mom is the one who showed me how to make a pie crust and flute the edges. (it is so easy) She makes the "BEST" apple pie.

    Your post was humorous, I loved it!
