Sometimes you have to think outside the box when coming up with fun meals. For example, my parents were visiting recently and I wanted to make a somewhat nostalgic recipe combining one of my grandma’s favorite snacks and my Mom’s favorite meals. Triscuits were always my Grandma’s favorite snack cracker, and Quiche is one of my Mom’s favorite meals to eat anytime of the day.
My Mom and I decided to recreate a classic recipe using one of the new Triscuit Real Foods varieties (choose from sweet potatoes, brown rice, and red beans). We settled on the Brown Rice Salt & Pepper Triscuit to create a crust for a Quiche Lorraine.
The Triscuit crust created a bit crunchier of a texture as compared to the classic pie crust and held together much better then we thought it would. Hooray for experimenting and adding a twist to a classic!
~7 oz. ounces of Triscuit Brown Rice Salt & Pepper crackers (you need 1 1/2 cups of crumbs)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup half and half
~1 cup baby spinach leaves
4 slices of no sulfate/ite added bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar or Gruyere cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the crackers into a food processor and process until fine crumbs. Melt the butter and add it and the flour to the processor and pulse a few times to mix.
2. Press the cracker mixture into the pie plate and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
3. Cook the bacon in the microwave while you chop the baby spinach. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and then whisk in the milk, half and half, spinach and Gruyere. Chop the bacon and add to the bowl, mix.
4. Pour the egg mixture onto the prepared crust and bake until light brown, puffed, and set, between 30 to 35 minutes.
5. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before serving.

A new take on an old favorite. Enjoy the new line of Triscuit baked with whole grain brown rice and wheat, some with real food ingredients like sweet potato or red beans.
