I Made My First Quiche
I can't believe it has taken me this long to attempt to make a Quiche. I thought it was a lot of work for a egg pie :O) Enjoyed them when someone else made them, and was amazed at how much they had gone through for breakfast. As I found out though it is really easy and actually quick, maybe quicker then the pancakes, waffles, eggs, omelets I have spent time making. My grandkids always want "Grandma's pancakes, cause they are so good" Maybe now that they are 18 + they will like my Quiche's...Anyway if you have never tried to make one go ahead you may be surprised ! ! !
1-(9-inch)pie crust Homemade or a ready made(the kind you roll out) My brand was Kroeger..
1-1/2 cup shredded cheese (2 to 4 oz.) I used a thinly sliced white cheese I had here, placed it on the bottom of the pie crust, then about 1/3 cup of Gorganzola (crumbled) on top of the white cheese, then a good cup + of a shredded 3 cheese mixture.
I cooked 2 slices of bacon (cut into small pieces) and set aside to drain and cool.
Then I saute'd onions, japaleno's,bell peppers,mushrooms. About 1/2 cup of each. Set these aside also to cool a bit.
Once things are cool, put them on top of the cheese, distributed evenly, and pressed gently to make sure they were settled.
1cup milk (you can use cream also for a richer quiche)
1/2tsp. dried thyme leaves OR other herb, any herbs or seasonings to your liking
Now I beat the eggs and seasonings and milk together and slowly pour this over the ingredients already placed in pie dish. I also placed a big handful of Baby Arugula on top.
Bake @ 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until it is set. Shouldn't wiggle in the center. Mine took 50 minutes but that was because I added a lot of ingredients.
Add a colorful sprig of fresh basil before serving...
