Ingredients

For shallow or regular 9 inch pie dish:

  • 1 unbaked pie crust (I use my Whole Wheat Pie Crust Recipe)
  • 6 oz uncured Canadian bacon or ham
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives or green onion
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

For a deep dish or large pie dish:

  • 1 unbaked pie crust to fit your pie plate
  • 8 oz uncured Canadian bacon or ham
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh chives or green onion
  • 9 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 3/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

For the Blender Hollandaise Sauce:

  • 3 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp dijon mustard
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (I use just a pinch)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Roll unbaked pie crust to a 9″ pie dish.
  2. Cut Canadian bacon into small squares. Chop chives or green onions. Spread evenly over the bottom of the pie crust.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and mustard powder. Pour over the onions and Canadian bacon in the pie dish.
  4. Bake for 35-45 minutes (55-65 minutes for a deep dish) or until the eggs are set. The filling should slightly jiggle like jello when it’s done.
  5. Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting into slices. Serve with blender hollandaise.

To prepare the hollandaise sauce:

  1. Add egg yolks, lemon juice, dijon, and cayenne to a blender. Close lid and blend until smooth.
  2. Heat butter in a microwave-safe dish until melted, about 30-60 seconds.
  3. While butter is hot, pour into egg yolk mixture in a thin stream while blending. Sauce should thicken quickly.
  4. Serve over warm quiche.
 

Make the hollandaise sauce just before serving so that it’s still warm when serving.

Made this for dinner last night-easy and delicious. Used Pillsbury refrigerated roll out crust-it was surprisingly flaky and was the perfect compliment to the quiche. Lovely with the sauce. Try it for a special treat. Thanks for the recipe.
