Real men eat what they want—including quiche

Quiche-ing my way? Fine, then make it quick and easy. Done.

Get your stuff together:

  • 3–4 eggs (depends on size of eggs; adjust to suit yourself)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 deep dish pre-made-in-a-cheap-aluminum-pan pie crust (I said “quick and easy”)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1Tbs oil (I prefer olive oil)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled bacon

Make the thing:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Mix the milk and eggs and set the mixture aside.
  • Chop the onion and place it in a microwave-safe glass bowl with the olive oil stirred in.
  • Microwave on high for a 1 to 1.5 minutes—check and modify up or down for your microwave. When the onions are clear, they’re done.
  • Put the onions in the bottom of the deep-dish premade pie crust
  • Add cheese and bacon alternatively until the pie pan’s full
  • Pour the egg/milk mixture over the cheese
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let it sit for a few minutes, then serve.

You can vary this infinitely. Other meats (ham, sausages, etc.), add veggies (frozen peas, broccoli, spinach, etc.). But with the elimination of the messiest and most time-wasting part (the pie crust) from prep, this is a fast food recipe.

Oh, and while you’re here, kick off the loafers (no, your shoes, not the guys on the front porch), wander around, cop some snacks from the fridge or pantry and generally feel free to make a mess. You’re sure to find something here at third world county to annoy the socks off you. Have at it!
