👋 Hello! This post contains affiliate links. Please read our disclaimer policy for more information. Thank you!
While I love the convenience of a good grab-and-go snack, I'm just as excited to spend time in the kitchen, cooking (and baking) tasty dishes. I mean, that's how Yumday truly began. It started out as a personal project for me to cook/bake/eat the National Food of the Day EVERY DAY. (Which I actually did, and it was quite the feat!)
And when the temperatures start to drop, and holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, I am in the mood to be in front of a hot stove/oven for hours. I seriously enjoy being in the kitchen and getting lost in a recipe or an experiment, and then rewarding myself at the end of an epic cooking/baking session with a delicious meal.
So, when I got my Great Jones Sweetie Pie dish delivered recently (*this dish was gifted for our review*), I couldn't wait to bake up a classic Sunday brunch food: bacon and cheese quiche! (Also, I just finished up a major kitchen renovation and finally got countertops and a new range installed last week! Woohoo!)
But first, let me tell you about this Sweetie Pie dish...
Guys, it's so cute!!!
Mine is in "Broccoli," but you can choose from four different colors for your dish pattern, such as "Blueberry," "Mustard," or the limited edition "Marinara." (You can't go wrong with whatever color you choose!)
It's a 10-inch ceramic dish that's oven safe at high temps. It's dishwasher friendly (heck, yeah!), and it's microwave safe — so you can leave your leftovers in it and pop it right in your microwave to reheat.
The rim of the ceramic pie dish is also wavy, so you can crimp your pie crust easily all the way around. If you're a baking enthusiast but not a baking pro (like me), this is perfect for giving your edge a little extra flair in an easy-to-do way.
Like I mentioned, I've been in the middle of a home renovation, and my kitchen project finally wrapped up at the end of last week. I was super eager to get cooking on my new range, and now with my new Great Jones Sweetie Pie dish I knew I wanted to whip up a rich quiche on Sunday to celebrate the end of our kitchen remodel.
Now, I don't have a recipe that I use for this quiche because I am a bit of a "free spirit" in the kitchen. But for this one, I used a refrigerated pie crust that I unrolled directly into the Sweetie Pie. Then I made an egg mixture that used four eggs (beaten) and combined half-and-half (about a cup) with salt and pepper sprinkled in. I baked 8 strips of bacon and crumbled it, and I layered that in with handfuls of shredded cheese (a mix of cheddar and parmesan) into the pie crust. And I poured my egg and cream mixture all over EVERYTHING. Then I added even more cheese on top because CHEESE. And I put the dish into the oven at 425 degrees and let it bake for around 45 minutes.
That's it! It's really that simple. When it looked done, I checked by using the old toothpick trick; and when the toothpick slid back out of the quiche looking all nice and clean, I let the bacon and cheese quiche cool for a few minutes before slicing it up. And when it came time to cut up my first wedge of quiche, the food slid out of the dish perfectly! The crust was golden brown — and the quiche was baked evenly throughout!
This Great Jones Sweetie Pie is a winner!
I can't wait to start making more savory — and even sweet — dishes in my Sweetie Pie. No doubt I'll be getting my use out of this amazing pie dish this holiday season and beyond!
