Jalapeno Popper Quiche

Randal loves jalapeno poppers, especially the ones from Arby's that come with that bronco berry sauce that contains no berries.  Usually though, quiche and Randal do not mix, but when I saw this jalapeno popper version from Closet Cooking I thought he might actually eat this one. 

We both really liked this quiche, although I will say that it is quite spicy so if you prefer a milder quiche clean out the seeds from the jalapenos.  I left the seeds in one of the jalapenos even though the recipe says to leave them in both, but I knew that would be too spicy for me, and even with one it was still hot!

1 frozen pie crust, defrosted
1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
2 jalapenos, diced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
5 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 jalapeno, sliced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400.

Place the pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan, prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.

While the pie crust is baking, heat the milk and cream in a small saucepan until barely simmering.

When the pie crust has baked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and lower the oven to 350.  Spread the softened cream cheese over the bottom of the crust, and top with the diced jalapenos.

In a bowl lightly beat the 5 eggs, and slowly add the warm milk and cream.  Stir in the spices.

Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with 8 jalapeno slices, bake for 10 minutes.  Then top with the grated cheese and bake for 5 minutes.

I love quiche and yours looks great. I wouldn't have thought to use the jalapenos either, but since quiche can be a little bland, I can see using them to give it a kick of flavor. Thanks for the new idea and recipe, and I very much appreciate you linking up to Your Cozy Home Party!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest a while back but haven't had a chance to make it until now. I am so glad I did - it is really good! I love the flavor of Jalapeños and I really like to try different varieties of quiche.

This was really good! I will make it again !
