Whenever I'm writing a Cheese Shop Mystery, I try to focus a lot of my energy on finding recipes that include the cheese of the day. For As Gouda As Dead, I made a lot of "gouda" dishes. Yes, pun intended.
I realize that I've shared a couple of quiche recipes this past year. I hope you don't mind that I'm sharing yet another one. Quiche is so easy to make. Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Charlotte, as many of you know, makes a daily quiche for Fromagerie Bessette. When they're gone, they're gone! And they do run out.
This one incorporates so many things I love to eat, that I couldn't pass up making it. Yes, this is my own creation, though I have to admit I scoured the Internet for ideas of combinations. What could be bad about bacon and apples, right? Sweet and savory. Add cheese and smile!
In fact it's so easy, I'm going to make this one again this week when I have family in. My son and DIL are moving to Los Angeles! Whee! Brunch is definitely on after the movers have come and gone. Perhaps I'll serve
APPLE BACON GOUDA QUICHE
[Note from Charlotte: If you need to eat gluten-free, either use a gluten-free pastry mix, a store-bought pie crust, or substitute the sifted flour in the Pastry Dough recipe below with gluten-free flour. My favorite combo is sweet rice flour mixed with tapioca starch. Add ½ teaspoon xanthan gum to the mix. And make sure you roll out the dough between parchment paper for best flexibility. Gluten-free dough doesn’t hold together as well as regular dough, but be patient.]
