Bacon and Potato Quiche

After successfully completing 2 weeks on a vegan diet, I went to the store and bought a huge pack of eggs. Eggs have been one of my favorite foods my whole life, and now that I am cooking all the time, I feel like I need to try out all the different possibilities that eggs present. I had never made a baked egg dish before, so since bacon and potatoes are two foods I absolutely love, why not just combine all three and see what happens?!

I found a bacon and potato quiche recipe made by Chandice of glutenfreefrenzy.com that looked amazing, so I decided to make a few minor changes and see what I could come up with. Since I am limiting dairy as much as possible, I went with almond milk instead of regular milk.  I am pretty confident any non-dairy milk will work in this recipe. Here are a few pictures of the cooking process, followed below by the recipe.

The Recipe

Here is what you will need:

  • 4 medium-sized cooked Russet potatoes, chopped or grated
  • 10 eggs – 6 w/ yolks and 4 egg whites (discarding the yolks)
  • 1/4 cup almond or rice milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2.  In a large bowl, add the 6 whole eggs and the 4 egg whites.  Whisk together.

3.  In the same bowl with the eggs, add in the milk and spices.  Stir together.

4.  Place the potatoes and bacon in the bottom of a 7 x 11 inch baking pan.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over top of the potatoes/bacon.

5.  Place in oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, longer if the middle is not cooked thoroughly.

 

The great thing about this bacon and potato quiche is that it’s gluten and dairy-free!  Of course, you could always use regular milk instead of almond/rice milk, but at this point in my life I am trying to limit my dairy as much as possible.  I was very happy with how delicious this dish turned out to be.  It should feed about 4 people, or 3 really big eaters.
