Quiche: It’s what’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Seriously, this dish is super versatile.

Looking to eat something fast, easy, delicious and healthy?

STA Cafe in Cape Girardeau has the answer: quiche.

There they serve up a jalapeno bacon cheddar quiche all day, every day. Owner Julie Malone says there’s a reason for that.

“You can eat it hot, you can eat it cold, you can eat it for breakfast, you can eat it for dinner, or a midnight snack,” Malone says.

Even better: you can put anything in it. She suggests variations like tomatoes and swiss, or mushrooms and spinach.

Malone shared the recipe for her quiche. You might want to add it to your meal prep plan.

1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of salt, split in halves
just over a quarter of a cup of oil
1/2 cup of iced cold water
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
2 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 jalapeno cut in slices

For the crust: Combine flower and salt into a large mixing bowl. In a measuring cup, whisk together the oil and water until it’s no longer separated. Add the water and oil to the flower and whisk until crumbly. Press the dough into a 1-inch thick round pan.
For the quiche: In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt and pepper, chopped bacon, and cheese. Whisk them together until well combined. Pour mixture over the crust. Place jalapeno slices on top of the mixture.
Bake the entire thing at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the center is set.
