With family visiting Fairhope, breakfast time on Sunday morning moves slow if your enjoying your coffee at a leisurely pace. Unless you want to run out in search of fast food, breakfast is needed. One Fairhope Foodies Prosciutto Chipotle Cheddar Quiche recipe is an easy fix.
Cooking a quiche for breakfast is always easy to serve a crowd. Substitute ingredients as needed depending on what you may have on hand. In my house I typically have prosciutto, coppa or salami. Grill Man and I both love any of these to be served on a charcuterie plate served along side a glass of wine. Any type of ham will substitute well in this quiche.
Troyer Cheese and where to buy
My One Fairhope Foodies Prosciutto Chipotle Cheddar Quiche recipe is delicious with chipotle cheddar cheese. Troyer is the brand of cheese that I chose to use in this recipe. Troyer is a family owned company and sells its products to family owned grocery stores or direct from its site. I love the smoky flavor with a bit of heat. As much as I adore this cheese, it too may substituted with another option.
Try one of Mimi’s Secrets
Regardless of which cheese you use, be sure to use one of my baking secrets AKA Mimi Magic. When using cheese in baked goods we typically think of grating cheese. If you add grated cheese to a quiche the small amount of cheese blends in once the quiche is cooked. Instead of grating, use the cutting method in my recipe directions. This will provide a bite of quiche with hot melted cheese instead of a disappearing act.
A combination of pie crust, eggs, cheese, prosciutto and seasonings make this a delicious hot breakfast to serve your loved ones. If you only need one, make two at the same time. Once the second one cools package and wrap well for the freezer.
One Fairhope Foodies Prosciutto Chipotle Cheddar Quiche recipe will serve you well on another day and always good to serve for lunch or dinner. An easy recipe that provides a hot dish will always provide love and happiness for all involved. Alexa, Shout out to Marc Broussard for his song Love and Happiness.
