One of our guests isn't drinking cow's milk, so we had to try our recipes with soy milk. Last weekend, we tried making scrambled eggs with it and were very pleasantly surprised. When I initially added the dash of soy milk, the egg mixture didn't smell quite right. However, as they cooked in the pan, the soy smell disappeared...and the texture was amazing!

So, here's the quiche recipe (using soy milk). Dieters, avert your eyes. (Also, temperatures assume a glass pie plate; add about 25 F for non-glass).

Quiche Lorraine with Hash Brown "Crust"

  • 3 large potatoes
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 and 1/4 cup soy milk
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 5 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  1. Boil potatoes until partially cooked (about 12-15 minutes). Drain and slice thinly.
  2. Heat oil in large pan. Cook potatoes slices until slightly browned (not too much!), about 10 minutes.
  3. Mix browned potatoes with butter. Spread potato slices along bottom of 9.5 inch pie plate and compact with a fork. Cook in oven for 15 minutes at 400 F.
  4. While potatoes are in the oven, beat together eggs, soy milk, and pepper.
  5. Remove potatoes from oven and very lightly brush them with dijon (should be barely visible). Place filling (bacon, cheese, and onion) on top of potatoes, then pour egg mixture over top. Cook in oven at 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes. The quiche is done when a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Tomato and Leek Filling
  • Follow above recipe for Quiche Lorraine, but skip dijon and substitute 284g (10oz) tomato concassé and 227g (8oz) leeks for the bacon and green onions.
  • Sauté white and light green parts of leeks until translucent. Add tomatoes and cook until liquid evaporates. Add 2 tbsp minced basil.

Smoked Salmon and Dill Filling
  • Follow above recipe for Quiche Lorraine, but skip dijon and substitute 113g (4oz) diced smoked salmon for bacon and green onions, and 57g (2 oz) cream cheese (cut into small pieces) for Swiss cheese. Add 2 tbsp chopped dill and 1 tbsp snipped chives.
