INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 45 min - 1 hr
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 20 min
  • Pie Crust
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese - I prefer cheddar or an Italian cheese mixture
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped, or fresh spinach
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Italian Seasoning (or some combo of Parsley, Thyme, Oregano, Basil, Rosemary, & Sage)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. If using broccoli, steam it until tender but too tough to eat. If using spinach, shock it by boiling for 30 secs - 1 min, straining it, separating the clumped leaves, cooling them in a bowl of ice water, and draining in a colander once cooled.
  3. Sautee onion, garlic, and bell pepper until soft, 5-10 min over medium heat.
  4. Beat the eggs together with the milk/cream and mayonnaise until well blended. Add the vegetables, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Add 1 cup cheese. Mix well.
  5. Pour the mixture into a prepared pie crust. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 45 min - 1 hr.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is an easy quiche recipe that my mom taught me. I use my own favorite veggies, though you can add whatever ingredients you want to the egg-milk-cheese template. A no-hassle dish that's classy because it has a French name. I hope you enjoy its awesomeness and simplicity!
