Albuquerque has a fun and unique event that is being hosted this weekend called “Southwest Beer, Bacon and Blues Fest” this Saturday April 15th from 11 – 5pm at the Balloon Fiesta Park. This is a really fun event with great food and music. I thought what better way to promote this event than to share one of our favorite quiches but with a unique change to it so that it features one of the “celebrities” at the festival – BACON!!
The quiche I am going to share with you is our Shredded Potato Quiche that has been a classic favorite here at the bed and breakfast since we opened. Except this time rather than putting bacon served on the side we are going to make a beautiful lattice weave with bacon on the top of the quiche. If you are a bacon fan this will be one of your favorite ways to make this quiche.
For those of you that have missed being able to enjoy our quiche this Saturday morning at the bed and breakfast we hope that you can make plans to join us at another time and maybe we will suprise you with this quiche or another one of our amazing dishes!
Check out the link for all the fun things to do at the festival and try to make plans to spend some time with us next year when attending this fun day of great food and music. http://www.southwestbaconfest.com/
Shredded Potato Quiche
1 16oz. package frozen shredded hash brown potato, thawed
1/4 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of ham or chopped broccoli (or use . cup of each)
1/4 cup milk

potatoes into greased pie pan. Brush with melted butter.

• In a large bowl, stir together beaten eggs, milk, cheese, ham,
seasonings. Pour egg mixture into baked crust. Bake in
preheated oven until center is set. About 20 minutes. The
quiche will be browned on top and a knife inserted into the
center will come out clean.
***To make the lattice top on your quiche take strips of uncooked bacon and lay it on top of the quiche by weaving it on your quiche. When you have the quiche woven with bacon to your satisfaction cut edges that are lapping off the egde of the quiche with kitchen shears. Cook the bacon with the quiche for the 20 minutes.
