I love a good simple recipe and I love quiche so I am excited today to share this simple quiche recipe that can be tailored to your taste bud's desires. There are just 4 basic ingredients and then you can layer in extra ingredients to make it your own.
A quiche is perfect for your Christmas morning festivities or a brunch at your friends house! It looks dainty on a plate and makes your tummy happy. Can you tell I love quiche? It's also pretty hard to mess up which gives it major bonus points in my book.
Let's get to the recipe shall we?
Basic Quiche Ingredients --
1 refrigerated pie crust
8 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (quiche will cook for one hour)
Additional Optional Ingredients --
cooked breakfast sausage
cooked, chopped broccoli
Additional Tools --
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then, crack 8 large eggs and 1/2 cup milk, whisk together. At this point, I added in 1 cup cooked breakfast sausage as well.
Then add in 3/4 of the cheese, reserve a little bit back to place on the top of the quiche right before putting it in to bake. Then mix all the ingredients together.
Place the pie pan on a metal sheet pan for cooking to catch any drips. Then, carefully, pour the contents of the bowl into the uncooked, refrigerated pie crust. Use the whisk to make sure the meat or optional ingredients are properly distributed. Finish by sprinkling the reserved shredded cheese on top.
The most difficult part is gingerly placing the quiche into the oven without spilling. Cook for 60 minutes at 35o degrees. It is done cooking when you put a fork or knife in the middle and it's cooked through. It may rise while baking but allow the quiche to rest for a few minutes when finished baking.
I like to make 2 quiches at a time since the refrigerated pie crusts usually come in a 2-pack. The last time I made this, I made an extra for Christmas morning. I simply let the quiche cool and placed the quiche in a ziploc bag in the freezer. The day before I will place in the fridge to thaw and reheat the quiche for 1 hour at 350 degrees covered with tin foil. I can enjoy Christmas morning with my family and let my oven do the cooking.
I love to serve quiche with a fruit salad, cinnamon rolls, my favorite Trader Joe's almond filled croissants or doughnuts. Do you love quiche? What do you put in yours? There are endless variations but the basic recipe is so easy and doesn't take more than 10 minutes to whip together which makes it my kind of recipe.
What are you baking for Christmas Morning? If you have company, this is a must have and make it now and thank yourself later.
Until next time, keep on keeping on with an intentional, joyful, faith-filled life. #tribekoko
