Since it is Lent, I don't want to go food shopping unless it is absolutely necessary. One of my resolutions is to make do with what I already have in the cupboards and refrigerator.
We had a meat dish last night so tonight I wanted to make something different. We haven't had a quiche in a long time and we had plenty of eggs in the refrigerator as well a partial package of sliced bacon. So I decided on Quiche Lorraine with some modifications.
Menu: Homemade Quiche Lorraine Sliced Tomatoes with lemon and oil
I used the recipe for the single pie crust from my Cuisinart booklet. It was the first time I made pastry dough using the food processor and let me tell you, it worked quite well.
Now, like I mentioned, some modifications were made. For instance, I used American cheese instead of the Swiss cheese. It is a small sacrifice for Lent. I also had to cut down on the 6 slices of bacon called in the recipe as we had a little less than that. The quiches are ready and they look and smell scrumptious. I just hope they taste as good as they smell...and look.
