Tomato Bacon Quiche

Since the husband has to work night shift this week, we're going to have breakfast for dinner (or lunch, or brunch, or whenever he decides to eat).  I personally love quiches and frittatas because they are so easy, just mix some stuff together and bake it.  I bet you could even mix the stuff the night before and just pour it in the pie shell and bake it the next morning.  They also reheat pretty well, which is always a plus when there's only two of us in the house. 


    4 eggs
    1 can evaporated milk
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
    2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    4 scallions, sliced
    1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
    1 frozen pie shell


Preheat oven to 375. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder. Add bacon, scallions, tomatoes, and cheese to bowl, stir together. Pour filling into frozen pie shell. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes, or until the filling it puffed and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
