- other seasoning, depending on the ingredients
- 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!
