I was so happy recently when I got to take trip to visit my Grandmother.  Her home brings back so many warm memories for me, and just being in her presence brings me comfort.  I had driven to see her with my mom, and when we arrived she mentioned she was hungry.  When I was little, my grandmother always made the best food. Nowadays she doesn't cook like she used to, so when she mentioned a desire for quiche I jumped on the opportunity to not only cook for her, but try out a new meal as well.

She has this fantastic collection of recipes that she has set aside over the years, one of them being a quiche.  We made a few adjustments as we went, swapping out the chicken for bacon, but kept the basics the same.

I started by taking some shredded Swiss and tossed in a little bit of flour and the chicken bouillon.  I stirred the mixture to coat the cheese.

In a small bowl, I beat the eggs.  I added them into the bowl with the cheese, then stirred in the milk, some chopped onion, sweet peppers, salt and pepper.  I poured the mixture into a pie crust I had baked for a few minutes to crispen it up, then placed it in the oven.

I let the quiche bake for 40 minutes, until the eggs were no longer liquidy and had browned slightly on the top.

You know, I don't recall being a huge quiche fan as a child, but this was darn good.  I am not a bacon eater, so I picked it out of my portion, but the onions, peppers, and cheese were awesome in the dish.  I had never even tried shredded Swiss in a recipe before!  My Grandmother loved this as well, and it felt good to get to make her a nice fresh meal.  This was great for lunch, and the next day I had some leftovers for breakfast.  I'm so glad I finally tried making quiche!
