Quiche: It’s What’s For Dinner

Tonight we had quiche for dinner… along with a side salad. Yeah. It was yummy. My recipe was requested… and I have to be honest and tell you that it kinda happens. Or as my family says, “I follow a recipe… but at a distance.” So here’s the rough approximation of a recipe. 🙂

For each quiche:

  • 1 unbaked 9″ pie shell (yes – you can cheat and use the frozen ones!)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion, fried until soft
  • 1/3 cup other vegys, finely chopped (tonight it was broccoli – tomatoes, mushrooms and carrots also work)
  • 1/2 cup chopped swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup bacon or sausage, cooked until well-done
  • 2 cups milk, scalded and cooled to room temperature
  • 3 eggs, well-beaten

Stir together eggs and scalded milk. Sprinkle vegys and cooked meat on the bottom of the pie shell. Pour egg mixture over top. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes until a knife inserted into the quiche comes out clean. Length of baking depends on the depth of the pie pans. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving.

Can substitute more vegys to substitute for the bacon or sausage if desired.
You can make quiches with egg substitutes, but the texture is not as firm.
Depending on the depth of the pie shell, you may have some leftover egg mixture. Lightly grease small pans and bake with quiches. Someone at our house likes them for breakfast. 🙂
