Quiches come in all forms and flavors. They even have different names (Lorriane or flan) and are made with all different kinds of ingredients (like plain or exotic cheeses, or mushrooms or even broccoli). I never thought much about them, though. I seem to remember, as a kid, thinking that a quiche was something that was a mix between a squash and a zucchini.

I’m not entirely sure why.

I know that at some point they’ve been considered a specialty food, but I also know that they are just as easy to make at home for pennies on the dollar as they are to order at a high priced restaurant (filled with expensive and exotic mushrooms, or caviar or whatever).

But I thought that since my tastes have matured and changed over the years, I might give this quiche making thing a try. I decided that a nice cheese, turkey and spinach quiche would be a good starting point for making quiche.

Of course, if you have different stuff that you would like to put in your quiche, feel free to substitute them. The basics on this recipe are the same: the eggs, milk and spices are mixed separately and poured over the other ingredients in the shell.

I make this one with a store bought frozen pie shell. You can make one from scratch if you like. I just don’t have the patience and enough elbow room in my kitchen to make dough properly.

The filling can be made easily in a large mixing bowl and using a hand whisk, or a standing mixer or even a food processor. The decision is up to you; For myself, I prefer the easier clean up, and since my standing mixer is hand wash only and the food processor has about a million different pieces that need to be removed, taken apart and washed (in the dish washer thankfully) I’m happy to use a single bowl and whisk that I can toss in the dish washer and let 21st century technology take care of it for me.
