The idea came from my BBQ. If I can wrap bacon round medjool dates for devils on horseback, could I put them in a quiche alongside bacon? I made a normal quiche, adding a spoon of bran to the white flour and using goose fat for shortening. In went strips of mature cheddar cheese, chopped onion, pre-cooked soft (Canadian) bacon. Then I added chopped up stoned medjool dates before pouring in the milk, egg and creamed spinach. It worked! The combination of sweet and salty was like the devils on horseback, but in a quiche. I will do this again.
