One of my husband's favorite breakfasts - and yet one that I rarely make - is quiche. But if you, like me, have a hard time finding time in the morning to make this dish, try making it for supper! Or you can make the pie crust the night before. You can even make the crust and put it in the freezer for later! To do this, roll the crust out on a sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper. Cover the entire top with another piece of plastic/wax paper. Now you can gently fold it to put in a ziploc bag for freezing. When you're ready to use it, thaw completely before unfolding!

Quiche, like most "casseroles", is quite versitile. You can make a very simple quiche with just eggs, milk and cheese. If you don't have cheese, add lots of meat and vegetables and you'll hardly miss it. As you mix and match ingredients, just be sure your total (of meat & vegetables combined) doesn't add up to more than about a cup.

Most quiche recipes call for cream (or for sour cream, cottage cheese, etc). However, I've used my trusty cream substitue of rich powdered milk quite successfully. :-) Just mix powdered milk using a 3-to-1 ratio instead of the normal 4-to-1.

Simple Quiche Recipe

One pie crust

6 eggs
1/2 c rich milk
1/2 c Cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Optional Add-ins:

Meat (1/4c to 3/4c) - ham, bacon, sausage,

Veggies (1/4c to 3/4c) - mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, onions, peppers, tomatoes,

Seasonings (don't use more than one of these at a time) - basil, rosemary, nutmeg, cayenne pepper

Bake crust 10-15 min at 375. Then fill with egg mixture and bake 35-40 minutes. For best results, let cool 10-15 minutes before serving. Serve with ketchup, salsa, or for a special treat, serve with maple syrup!

Do you make quiche? Anything you add that I didn't mention here?

    Yes, we love quiche! I use a recipe that calls for 3 eggs and two cups of milk. Maybe not quite as rich but still good!
    A very fast way to enjoy something like quiche is to mix 3 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1 tsp salt, 2 Tbs oil, 1/3 cup flour and seasonings to taste. Pour into pie pan and add any meat or veggies (we love greens in there). Cheese if you have it. Bake till done. This forms a bit of a crust as it bakes.

    We love quiche! More often than not, I make a crustless quiche- quicker and healthier (though I absolutely love a good crust). I was just thinking last week that I'd like to find another quiche recipe to try. You posted this at just the right time. Now I don't have to go searching for one. ;)
