What does CRACK mean?

If a recipe has “crack” in the title it means that the recipe has cheddar, bacon, and ranch in the ingredients. It all started with my Crack Dip way back in 2007. I made the dip for a Titans football game. Everyone went crazy over it. We couldn’t stop eating it and said it was like crack. The name stuck. 

According to the dictionary, the definition of crack is “of superior excellence or ability”. We think the flavor combination of cheddar, bacon, and ranch fits this definition! This recipe is most definitely of superior excellence!

How to Make Air Fryer Crack Quiche

This dish is effortless to make with only six simple ingredients. Spray an 8-inch cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press a large tortilla into the pan. Spread cooked chopped bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and chopped green onions in the bottom of the tortilla. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, and ranch dressing mix. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon. Cover the cake pan with aluminum foil. Place the pan in the air fryer basket and air fry for 10 minutes. Uncover the pan and cook until the eggs are set. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Comments

  1. Can I use half and half instead of heavy cream? What size air fryer is used? My air fryer isn’t big enough for an 8-inch cake pan, but I have 7-inch diameter pan that will fit – how should I adjust the recipe to fit?

    1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
