http://www.almanac.com/recipe/for/apple-quiche/559

Fabulous! What a wonderful change of pace for brunch or lunch! Use an apple that will hold its shape when baked -- Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Rome, or Northern Spy will all work. Avoid McIntosh and Red Delicious.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 5 to 6 large apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash of nutmeg
  • dash of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the apples in the pie shell. Sprinkle the cheese over the apples. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Pour over the apples. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving warm, or serve chilled.

 I printed it out, thank you!  

We have apple trees out back and this is a great way to utilize some of them.  My first inclination would be to add pork sausage to it.  Apples and pork go so well together and then it would be a main course quiche.

I like the idea of pork with this.   However, you're not talking about pork sausage that's been seasoned with sage and the like are you?  

You could serve this with a pork chop on the side.

That sounds good. Especially since the recipe ingredients lend it to be more savory than sweet. Let me know how it turns out.

 Have you tried this?  Is this good for a fruit course or how about the main event?

To be honest, I haven't tried it yet. Here is one of the reviews posted with the recipe. I would say perhaps a fruit course?

I made this and served it at our restaurant. The customers who got to eat it prior to it selling out loved it. They commented that it tasted more like a custard than a standard quiche. – Anonymous Review
