Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1 cup chopped meat
  • 3/4 cup chopped vegetables
  • 1 pie crust
  • salt & pepper
  • other seasoning, depending on the ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly whisk together the eggs, egg white and milk.
  • Add salt, pepper and other seasoning of your choice.
  • Stir in the cheese, meat and veggies.
  • Roll out the pie crust onto a 10-inch pie pan. Add filling.
  • Bake until crust is golden brown and eggs have set, about 45-50 minutes.
  • If crust becomes too brown, use a pie shield or cover crust with aluminum foil.
  • Let quiche cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
  • As far as the ingredients go, you are only limited by your imagination.
  • Some suggestions: for an Italian quiche, pepperoni, mozzarella and tomatoes; for a Greek quiche, kalamata olives, onions, spinach and feta; turkey, broccoli and cheddar; ham, asparagus and swiss. My husband doesn't like meat in his, so I double up on the veggies and use pepper jack and cheddar cheeses. Once you know this basic recipe, the possibilities are endless!

Notes

This is great for breakfast or a light dinner with a fruit or green salad.
