Crock Pot Quiche

I have to give credit for the inspiration on this one to Harlan Cheek. Last week he posted a recipe for baking a pecan pie in a crock pot. I was intrigued. It certainly would be cooler than turning on the oven. If it worked for pie would it work for a quiche? I had to find out. I followed his directions as best I remembered them. I started by spraying the inside of the crock pot with non- stick baking spray. I am sure I could have oiled it instead or maybe rubbed it with butter. Then I placed the pie crust in- trying to fit it as best I could. It was pretty easy. I added the fillings like I normally would, put on the lid and set it on high. I let the quiche bake for 90 minutes- then gave it a look. Harlan’s recipe said¬† to bake for 2-3 hours. It was set but the crust needed a little more time so I let it go another 30 minutes.

It worked!! A perfectly “baked” quiche in the crock pot.

OK- I can hear the question you want to ask-how do you get it out? We had errands to run so I turned it off and left it in the crock pot, uncovered, for an hour or so. It was still warm. I loosened the edges and removed the crock from the base. I placed my hand on the top of the quiche and turned the crock over. It came out right into my hand and I placed it on a serving plate. A little of the crust crumbled- but it mostly held together. Next time I might try 2 spatulas. Hindsight….

If you haven’t tried this before I urge you to try. I’ll post the recipe for the quiche soon. It was made with a weed from my yard- and lots of cheese. I would love to hear what you baked in your crock pot and how it turned out.
