Guest Post: Bacon, Vegetable, and Ricotta Quiche

When Kim from Cravings of a Lunatic asked me to do a guest post on her lovely blog, there was only one answer: Of course! I’ve admired Kim’s blog for some time. It’s written in a funny, candid voice and is full of inspiring recipes. Having recently become blogging buddies, I can also tell you that Kim is a thoughtful, supportive individual, the kind that you’re lucky to have in your corner. We spent some time considering what recipe to include and settled on one that Kim herself would never post: quiche. Kim hates eggs and is lactose intolerant so this egg-based quiche with ricotta is definitely a recipe her readers wouldn’t otherwise get from her! It’s just too bad she can’t try it (head to her blog for the recipe).

I like quiche for many reasons, but its main draw for me is its versatility. I love that you can throw in basically whatever you have in your fridge, and that there is an endless possibility of meat, vegetable, and cheese combinations for the filling. It’s also a versatile dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, hot or cold. Since I always have puff pastry and eggs on hand, it’s the kind of meal I can throw together quickly using what I have on hand.

For the recipe, you’re going to have to head over to Cravings of  Lunatic. Tell Kim I sent ya, and that I say hi!

  3. Yum-popping right over to kims blog!

  4. Dear Katherine

    I love quiche for the same reason too that it is so flexible. Cold quiche in summer and hot quiche in winter makes me very happy!

  5. Seriously, who doesnt love a kissy quiche??

  6. I am so touched you are guesting today Katherine. This quiche looks so delicious I may have to rethink my stance on eggs.A monster sized hug to you for being so gracious. And a huge Lunatic welcome to those who swing by to see the recipe.

    • Maybe this quiche can be your once a year egg trial! Seriously, you taste the other ingredients way more than you do the eggs :-) So happy to guest post for you! Such fun :-D

  7. What a beautiful quiche, Katherine! I,too, love the versatility of quiches. Egg dishes are a staple in our house!

  8. You make quiche look so drool-worthy — bet this is one of the best ways to get kids eat their veggies ;)

    Heading over to Kim’s :)

    • Thank you Kiran! Yes, I bet this would be a great way to get kids to eat veggies, nestled amongst cheese and bacon in a pie crust :-)

  9. Just the title of this post made my mouth water but then when I saw the pictues, oh my! This quiche looks fabulous and I will definitely give it a try over the holidays! Thanks
    Oh and I just discovered your blog and your website – they’re awesome! I will enjoy checking them out!

    • Aww thanks so much for all the nice comments! I hope you enjoy the recipe if you give it a shot. Let me know how it turns out!

  10. Looks delicious! yum! Is it easy to get bacon in Israel?

    • Thanks Vered! It’s actually way easier than I thought it would be to get bacon here as there are a number of Russian markets that have it readily available. It’s pricey and not as good as in the US, but it’s there!

  11. Yum! This is so colourful and enticing! going to head on over to Kims blog to check out your recipe.

  12. Isn’t Kim the best? I was so glad to see your guest post on her blog today…what a fabulous quiche!

  13. Thanks to everyone who popped by my blog to see Katherine’s gorgeous quiche today. I am so thrilled with her guest post. Also everyone’s sweet comments. I love making you all giggle. Brightens up my days.

    Katherine thank you again for guesting for me. I am so touched you did this for me. Such a gorgeous dish too. I am ever grateful my friend. Maybe one day we’ll be lucky enough to meet in person. Nothing would make me happier than to share a kitchen with you gabbing and laughing, enjoying great food and company. xx

  14. Beautiful quiche! I love that there are lots of nutritious ingredients on top. I’m heading over to Kim’s site now!

    • Thank you Nami! Yes, quiche isn’t the most healthy dish (with all that egg, bacon, cheese, and pastry) so I felt the need to pack it with nutritious ingredients too!

  15. your quiche is making me hungry this late at night. puff pastry is expensive here and mostly imported (no idea why), will have to find another tart base recipe. i didn’t know it’s so easy to make, going over to check the recipe. oh and I need to get a tart pan.. :)

    • Haha. The only reason I used puff pastry as the base is because it is easy to come by and inexpensive here. Really any pie crust will work. Also instead of a tart pan you can use a regular pie pan. Use fewer eggs as it will be smaller, or make two! You could even make individual quiches in ramekins. No need for special equipment just for this :-)

  16. Fantastic photos — as always, of course — but that one of the whole quiche looks incredible. It’s late at night here, and now you’ve got me starving (and there’s only 1 egg in the house…) theresa
