Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust
  • 5 slices turkey bacon
  • 1 leek chopped
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk regular is fine
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 450°F. Pre-bake 9" pie crust until lightly golden, 10-12 minutes.
  • Cook turkey bacon. Cool and chop into small pieces.
  • Add olive oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add the leeks and mushrooms, and cook for 5-8 minutes, until soft and cooked through.
  • In a large measuring glass or bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. Add the salt, pepper, turkey bacon, leeks and mushrooms.
  • When pie crust is done, reduce oven heat to 350°F.
  • Pour egg mixture into the pre-baked pie crust and bake for 40-50 minutes, until middle is cooked through (it won't jiggle and inserting a knife into the middle shouldn't leak any liquid).

To Freeze:

  • Allow baked quiche to cool completely.
  • Cover with plastic wrap, and then aluminum foil. Label with the name, date, and re-heating instructions using a sharpie.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months.

To reheat thawed quiche:

  • Thaw completely.
  • Heat in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes, until heated through.
  • To reheat from frozen (note: if you used a glass pie dish, thaw completely before placing in the oven)
  • Place frozen quiche (covered with foil) in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes-1 hour (depending on the size of your quiche), until heated through.
