Weekends revolve around food for me. I wake up wanting something besides a granola bar or fruit loops for breakfast. This morning, I was craving quiche. Honestly, I was craving pie crust but couldn’t justify just baking a pie crust for breakfast. So, I made bacon and mushroom quiche instead!
Start by cutting up six slices of bacon. I just cut them with a scissors right over the pan. Give ’em a swirl and let them fry up over a low flame.
Then get cracking. Crack four eggs into a bowl. Add a few shakes of Tabasco and a 1/2 teaspoon of creole seasoning or seasoning salt of your choice. Your ability to take spice should dictate how much you add. Add one cup of milk.
Head back to the bacon. Once it is browned to your liking, remove from the pan with a spoon. Put the bacon pieces on a paper towel to soak up the grease. Pour the grease into a small glass bowl. You are going to need that bacon grease in a minute. I chopped up two garlic cloves and a half of a red onion plus had some presliced baby bella mushrooms.
Pour two tablespoons of the bacon grease into the skillet and add onions and garlic. Let sauté for about a minute. Toss in mushrooms. If you don’t have bellas, add button or whatever you have. About eight ounces worth. Mix the mushrooms and onions together and sauté on low for 3-4 minutes.
