Cave Man Food !

OK, I cooked a quiche tonight, and I'm not afraid to eat it !!!!

Actually, it's a man's quiche .... bacon, shrimp, onions, jalapenos, cheese.  What's not to like ?  I've made this quiche for years, but this is the first time I've cooked it on the Egg.  The Egg added a very nice nuance to it, and I will cook it on the Egg from now on.

Recipe to follow.

    Dawg,
    Not critical.  I usually get the shredded Italian 4 cheese package, but mozzarella would be just as good.

    In luizziana, we call them thangs "pies"
     
    The Real Pie man in Gretna makes some shtuff that takes the "quiche" in "quiche" and replaces it with "muthaf*ckin' MAN pies". 

    Looks manly.    If you had more than 2 eggs in it, I wouldn't be posting this.

    Thanks, Ragtop.  Yes, it's a red onion.  I made thin slices at the fattest part.  Then cut in half.  I used the outside layer and the one underneath.

  • VI, looks great as usual.  Let me ask a stupid question....When would you put the platesetter legs down vs legs up?  I usually put them legs down when baking vs indirect grill with legs up.  Whatcha think?

    Only 2 eggs?  That seems like a big ole pie for 2 but I'll give it a shot.  My quiche is like scrambled eggs in a pie crust so I'm probably doing it wrong.

    Thanks folks !!!

    For some unknown reason, I always put the plate setter legs up unless I'm doing pizza.  Then I do legs down.  I guess I don't want the plate setter to be too close to the food.

    Looks great @Village_Idiot. I'm man enough to eat quiche, I'll have to ask the Mrs. to make the next one on the Egg. One question, was the shrimp pre-cooked as well?

    No.  45 minutes is more than long enough to cook the shrimp.

    I'm glad you asked before I potentially made the whole family sick!

    Of course quiche is a manly dish. Bacon and cheese in a slab of pie, what else could it be? However, you did use the word nuance. Care to reconsider that?
    :P

    Good point, Blockhead !   :))   I meant to say "upshot" but I had a finger fart.
