Imagine Apple Pie Wrapped In A Creamy Omelette
One of the most popular items on our menu, here at Rose Abour, is our Apple Cheddar Quiche. We often get requests for this recipe. Imagine warm apple pie wrapped in a yummy omelette then nestled in a flaky pastry crust, and you’ll understand why. So here you go…
Pie Crust (use the recipe of your choice or pre-made from the store. There are some good ones out there.)
3 medium Granny Smith apples
6 eggs (4 whole, 2 yolks only)
2/3 cup half and half
8 oz. cottage cheese
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (grated) Of course we use good Vermont cheddar, but any sharp will do.
pinch of salt
2 TBS cinnamon and sugar 1:1 mixed for the topping
Preheat your oven to 350*
Peel, core, and dice apples into approx. 1 inch cubes. Saute apple pieces in 4 TBS butter until apples are soft and slightly caramelized. Set aside. In large bowl whisk 4 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks with half and half and a pinch of salt. Add cottage cheese and mix. Grate cheddar and add to egg mixture. Place apples into prepared pie crust and pour egg mixture over the apples until completely covered and pie plate is filled. Be careful not to over fill, as drippings will cause your oven to smoke. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top covering all of the egg mixture.
Bake for 45-50 minutes depending on oven variations. Let the quiche set up for at least an hour before serving.
And most of all ENJOY!
