Quiche is so easy to make. It's a nice lunch dish or great for a light supper. Quiche travels well which makes it great for picnics too! This recipe is super easy because it uses a pre-made frozen pie crust. Perfect for summer. I hope you will give quiche a try today. The variations are endless.
Ingredients (Makes 2 Quiche)
1 pkg frozen pie shells (two shells)
1 bunch fresh broccoli, chopped and blanched (you could use frozen too)
1 pre-cooked ham steak
1 cup caramelized onion
2 TBSP melted butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped and sauteed
salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
fresh nutmeg or 1/2 tsp of ground
1 cup milk or cream or a combination
3 large eggs at room temp. (you can make this using 2 eggs. Rule of thumb is 2 eggs for every 1 Cup of milk)
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese (gruyere)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake docked shell for 10-15 minutes.
Mix the broccoli, ham, and spices together, set aside.
Lightly beat eggs and add milk and then add the cheese and set aside.
Mix all other ingredients in a separate bowl.
Divide the broccoli/ham mixture between the two pre-baked pie shell(s) and then pour the egg mixture over, dividing it in half between the two pie shells.
Bake the quiche in a preheated oven at 350 F for 40-50 minutes
This will make about 6-8 servings.
