I Made My First Quiche

Updated on March 17, 2011

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.

6-EGGS beaten

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

1/2tsp. salt

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...

 

Most Quiche recipes I read were only 2-3 ingredients. You can be as creative as you like, how can you go wrong with such great tasting foods? Have fun and enjoy...:O) Hugs G-Ma

My husband loves it so I know it has to be good, lol. This of yours looks like something he would really go for too.

      Tom...

      Well get with it MAN...they are good and you can make any kind you like, so forgiving.

      I used a cheese I had here, cuz on Friday with my wine I like cheese and crackers or bread, so try different kinds of cheese all the time.This one was BERGENOST, a buttery triple cream Norwegian style cheese.(New York's Artisan Cheese).

      You could use Monterey Jack, Jack cheese, Provolone, swiss, I would guess any kind you like or have handy, that's how I cook, with what I have here.

      Well nice to hear my picture mades you hungry...Have agreat week end my friend...HUGS ! ! ! :O) God Bless Merle Ann

      Merle Ann, this looks great. Would you believe I've not only never made one I've never even eaten one. Real men don't eat them you know :-P (so I guess I have no excuse:-) One ?, what kind of white cheese? There are a bunch of them. I wasn't hungry before I read your hub but I'm off to have a bite of something :-P Peace and Love!! Tom

      no body...well this was not slimy and I was so proud of myself. Go ahead try it... it is easier then I ever thought...not sure about the calories, but it is healthy, of course not an everyday meal (or is it)? Now I want to try and make some Individual ones...Darn I love to cook...experimenting a lot more these days.

      GOD Bless and HUGS :O) G-Ma

      I have never made one nor has my wife ever tried. I love quiche, if it is not slimy. If it is well done I love it. I am afraid my wife will not like it if I make it and she won't try it. I guess I just have to buck up and just make one to see. Love ya Ma great big hugs to you.
