Martha and Me we made Maple-Bacon Quiche. This week's recipe was selected by Pru over at Perfecting Pru. I joined in the fun because I'd already "perfected" the Pate Brisee crust when I made Maple-Nut Pie.
This recipe was unecessarily complicated to make. There were so many steps that I don't know if I ruined the recipe by making it wrong or if it was supposed to turn out this way. It took FOREVER to make and there was a million little steps and details. I mean, this is quiche right? Quiche is supposed to be easy, not complicated. I should make my easy Brocolli Quiche today just to prove how simple it should be.
Here's a summary of the number of steps involved. Make your Pate Brise (luckily I already had one of the crusts ready in the fridge), roll it out, place in quiche dish (I didn't have a springform pan and I'm not even sure what that is anyway), prick with fork. Place crust in freezer for 30 minutes - don't ask me why.
This is what we had for supper last night and everyone said they liked it - huh? I think maybe they were afraid to tell me they didn't after they saw the mood I was in after making it. The maple syrup was too sweet and didn't "go" with the eggs, although the thyme with the bacon flavouring was a good mix. I think my family only liked it because it was stuffed with bacon which is one of their favourite foods.
So, this is going into my "Recipe Bombs - Don't Make These!" file. Sorry Martha.
