Quiche – Simple, Elegant For Any Occasion

Posted by Teri

Quiche creates elegance for any occasion, especially when served on grandma's china and a lace tablecloth.

I am not a cook who likes to follow recipes, but must admit I do read cookbooks for ideas. Easy and able to use what I have in the cupboard is a must!

One of my favorite things to make is this quiche because the base is simple and I can add filling based on my mood, feeling and fresh ingredients on hand. 

Teri’s Simple Quiche Recipe

Crust: Start with a Marie Calendar pie crust from the freezer section (don’t tell my grandma this isn’t homemade!)

Base egg mixture: 5 eggs, 1.5 cups milk. Beat and put aside.

Filling – Here are some of my favorites:

  • Handful of spinach, ½ chopped leek, 1 c. shredded jack cheese. Pour egg mixture over and top with sliced tomatoes or red peppers.
  • Handful broccoli heads, ½ c. chopped red peppers, 1 cup cheddar and parmesan cheese. Pour egg mixture over top. Push broccoli down in egg mixture.
  • Line bottom of pie crust with Canadian bacon, 1 c. sharp cheddar cheese, pour egg mixture over and top with sliced tomatoes.
  • 1 cup crab meat, 1 c. pepper jack cheese, chopped scallions. Pour egg mixture over top.

Substitute your choice of filling and cheese (cheese is very important and subtly changes the mood.)

Bake for 45-55 minutes at 350°. Pie should not wiggle in the middle.  Let rest 10 minutes from oven before you cut. Can be served hot or cold. Keeps 2-3 days in fridge.

Serve with iced coffee in a wine glass and invite your best friend over for lunch in the garden!!!!

  2. ps. can ya widget a printer friendly option button for your website posts?

  3. In your admin dashboard page:

    the left column of choices includes SETTINGS. In that category there is a selection called SHARING. In that selection should be a print option. I think that’s how it’s done….. : \
