Puff Pastry Quiche with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Onion, Cheddar, and Broccoli


I’m a rule breaker.  Fact.  I don’t like being told what to do, and I typically don’t do what I’m told.  Sometimes this is out of spite, and sometimes I simply just don’t feel like it.  Either way, it just seems to be part of who I am.  The enigma that is Josey.  That being said, I often even find myself changing recipes.  I just seem to resist staying in the lines, the arbitrary is more my style. Sometimes this works out, and sometimes, well, it doesn’t.  Sometimes, I end up with a big, waste of money, mess.  Yesterday was not one of those times. 

Yesterday I found success.  This success was well taken, and I feel I’ve earned it.  I’ve been craving quiche for weeks, seriously, weeks.  Maybe 3 weeks or so ago I decided to make a quiche.  I found a recipe, adapted it, and came out with two lovely, ready to bake quiche.  I put them in the oven, set the timer and hit the sofa, anxiously awaiting the familiar beep of the timer signaling a creation is complete.  I didn’t hear the beep.  Nothing.  Three hours later, I smelled burnt.  Yup, I burnt those two quiche to a airy crisp!  There was no saving them.  Notta.  That’s why, when I heard that timer yesterday, I felt happiness.  In addition to happiness, I experienced that much sought satisfaction of an adaptation proving brilliant.  Bon Appetit!
