Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

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


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!

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I used this recipe as a base to my first quiche. I added the diced potatoes finally, it came out great with a mix of cheddar cheese, parsley, and onions. My little brother is the pickiest person when it comes to food, and he loved it! Thank you so much!
