real cowboys eat quiche

A new and fun recipe is as close as your local library! I found a fun cookbook called A Cowboy in the Kitchen the other day and I've been having so much fun exploring. Most of the recipes look delicious with the exception of Calf Fries with Cracked-Pepper Gravy. EWWWWW! I just cannot fathom why anyone would want to eat testicles! I'll take the gravy though.

There is a recipe for Corn Pudding Pie in there that caught my eye. Of course I can't ever follow a recipe so I made quite a few changes. I also decided to come up with my own name for this dish.

Cowboy Quiche
by the Ungourmet

Note: This recipe is for a deep dish quiche you will want to reduce the number of eggs if using a regular pie pan.

1 9 inch pie crust
8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 10 oz can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained well
(You can use 2 cans of the tomatoes if you would like.)

2 cups of fresh corn cut from the cob
1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
8 eggs
1 cup half and half
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
cracked pepper

Press the pie crust into a deep dish pie pan. Flute the edges.

Layer the bacon, tomatoes, corn and cheese in the pie shell.

Mix the eggs, half and half, chili powder, salt and pepper. Pour over other ingredients.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes (less time if using a smaller pie pan and less eggs).

Allow to cool slightly before cutting.

This turned out really great! I think a bit of roasted garlic would be great in this as well.

Jump on over to your local library and find something delicious!

I'm with you on that one, I don't think I could stomach testicles either! Your quiche looks delish though, and I love the cute name!

We call it "egg pie" in our home to avoid any comments about real men and quiche. :)

Dajana said...

I'm totally crazy about quiche, no "eggs" however, although I actually know men who ate them.
Cowboy quiche is so cute!

lululu said...

sometimes u just cant figure out why people eat certain stuff, and they call it "food".
your quiche looks delicious!

Palidor said...

I don't get eating testicles either. I have a Middle Eastern cookbook that has recipes for lamb testicles and brains. Blech! But I do get this quiche, as I loooove eggs. Wow, looks so tasty!

There are body parts that I just won't eat; the idea rolls my stomach over.

The quiche sounds delicious. Clever name. Makes me want to dress Ole Sweetie-Pi up in his cowboy boots.

Well, how's this for a cowboy kick in the rear end - I WORK at the library and we don't have that book in our whole system! Maybe I can do an Interlibrary loan and they can get it from someplace else. Meanwhile I just copied your recipe and am ready to make that this weekend. Wait! I'm off tomorrow - looks like supper to me! Thanks girl ~ ♥

My husband turned his nose up at quiche, but I know he'd eat this.

Dude, I should just hire you as a chef. If I was rich.

This quiche gets an A+ from me. I've started using more prepared pie shells. They are a real time saver. Looks delish, Kim.

Connie Weiss said...

You just can't go wrong with quiche!

And I have had testicles (bull) and I love them. I haven't had them in YEARS...I miss them so.

Oh how fun - I do found other names besides quiche to entice the "menfolk." Your fillings are scrumptious.

Chef E said...

I love quiche, this one you made, and the title of the post...cute!

Suzi said...

I am going to try this on my cowboys! The only problem the main cowboy would have is the cheese. Oh Well, he'll have to get over it.
