Holidays are a tough time when you can’t have dairy. Think about all the tasty food that has dairy in it. Hot cocoa, quiche, hashbrown casserole, cheese trays, egg nog and so much more. Luckily, if you have a lactose issue you don’t have to just watch others enjoy holiday treats you can enjoy them as well by using Lactaid milk, which is 100% real milk with the lactose removed. Happy Day!
It’s easy to make a cup of hot cocoa by using Lactaid milk, creamy casseroles can be enjoyed by using Lactaid milk and cheeses that are aged longer than 12 months and you never have to say no to quiche again when you make this Lactose Free Bacon and Goat Cheese Quiche. This is one of my favorite recipes to make for the holidays. It pairs well with fruit and a side salad and only takes a handful of ingredients.
Using a frozen pie crust (already shaped and in the pie tin–yay for fewer dishes) poke some holes in crust and pre bake it for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. I use a fork to poke holes in the crust. Don’t forget to poke along the sides as well. This should keep the crust from puffing up during the pre cook. Be careful not to poke holes into the pie tin.
Meanwhile, mix together a half dozen eggs with a cup of Lactaid milk, add a pinch of nutmeg and some salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. Remove the crust from the oven and add goat cheese and bacon bits, pour the egg mixture into the pie tin. Sprinkle a little more goat cheese on top, add thinly sliced tomato and return to oven. Cook for approximately 50 minutes or until egg is set.
