Quiche for One!

Hi everyone! I have a new toy, it's this 4 1/2" individual Le Creuset pie dish-oh boy! Cherry red, it matches the bigger pieces the kids gave me.
I couldn't wait to play with it so I decided to make a quiche for breakfast.
The single serving size is great because I don't like a lot of left-overs.
A single pie dough is more than enough for two of these dishes, so I had a quiche and...
I now have a crust in the freezer for next time!

So even if, or maybe especially if, you're only cooking for one, 
I hope I've inspired you to set your table and treat yourself to something special today!

Thanks so much to Savannah Granny for her CSN give-away! I picked out this dish and a great commercial Nordicware cupcake pan! Have you been to Ginger's blog, it's always a fun visit:@) 
Have a happy day:@)
Quiche for One
*Pre-Baked pie crust
1 egg (I'll use 2 eggs next time, I think the dish is big enough)
1/4 C cream or half and half
Any additions you'd like, I used onion and cheese today.
S&P to taste
Bake at 425 for approximately 25 minutes. Check it at about 18-20 minutes, if it starts to get too brown cover the top with tin foil. 

*I used a basic crust recipe 1 C flour, 1/3 C shortening and a few tablespoons of water. For the pre-baking, I lined the crust with foil and placed a ramekin on the foil to weigh it down. Baked for 12 minutes at 425 degrees.

  19. Hi Lynn, I LOVE quiche and so does my family. Your new dish is awesome. I bet that quiche tasted great. I think I would have a terrible time cooking this small. My huge family background is a cooking hazard. I always cook too much food. You gotta love the leftovers though. My hubs is fine with leftovers. Good thing!
    Smile!
    Hugs, Jeanne

  21. Love the Le Creuset dish. I always look at them and drool...then I try to find something more in my price range.

    Thanks for the small serving ideas. I'll be an empty-nester soon and love to see how others manage cooking for fewer people.
