Pesto Bacon Quiche

Happy Friday!!!  Mr. Autumn and I are celebrating our fortieth wedding anniversary this week-end.  We’re flying out today to a resort at Mont Tremblant, Quebec to meet up with our children and their significant others.  We are looking forward to an activity-filled week-end.


But first, I have this recipe that you must try.  I thought up the combination, but you have probably eaten the ingredients separately before.

 – Spread pesto over unbaked pie shell

 – Cook bacon till crisp.  Break into pieces and sprinkle over pesto.

 – Mix cheese, flour, eggs, milk, salt and pepper till well-blended.  Gently pour into pie crust on top of pesto and bacon.

 – Bake in a 375 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes.  It is done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

It is great served with a salad.  This will satisfy a man’s appetite and the ladies who lunch.



Take care.
