Dive into the Recipe: Western Omelet Quiche
The Base: A 9-inch deep dish pie shell, ready for the ensemble.
Vibrant Hues: 1/2 cup bell peppers (a mix of red and green for that visual appeal)
A Hint of Freshness: 3 sprightly green onions, thinly sliced.
Silky Richness: 1 cup heavy cream.
Protein Punch: 4 ounces of succulent ham.
Cheesy Euphony: 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese.
Fluffy Bind: 6 large eggs.
Season’s Greetings: A blend of salt, black pepper, and onion powder.
Conducting the Culinary Symphony:
Preheat your oven to a warm 375°F (190°C). Introduce your pie shell to this warmth for a brief 5 minutes, after gently pricking its base. As it rests, bring the oven down to a cozy 350°F.
In your skillet’s stage, let 2 tablespoons of butter melt and sing.
Dance in the bell peppers and let them sway until they soften to the melody.
Allow the green onions to join the ensemble, cooking until they’re tender and harmonious.
Layer the pie with the ham and cheese duo, setting the stage for the creamy overture.
In a separate mixing bowl, blend the cream, eggs, and seasonings, ensuring a seamless melding of notes.
Blend in the vegetables’ chorus to this creamy mixture.
Cascade half of this egg ensemble over the ham and cheese, and repeat until every note is played.
Let the quiche perform in the oven at 350°F for about 35-40 minutes, waiting for its crescendo when the center stands tall and the surface gleams.
Once done, let the quiche take a bow and cool slightly before you applaud with every slice. Your Western Omelet Quiche is ready for the ovation.
You’re the conductor here! Feel free to introduce other flavors like earthy mushrooms, verdant spinach, or even a hint of fiery hot sauce to customize your performance.
