A yummy filling of chicken, mushrooms, spinach, bacon and cheeses, layered between buttery-crisp sheets of phyllo. This recipe will make one 15 x 9 inch pan, which will serve 10-12 happy people, or two 8 x 8 inch pans, so you can bake one, and freeze the other (unbaked) to enjoy at a later date when time is short and good food is a must! All your meat and veg in one tasty packet. Developed for RSC #6.
This is my family's favorite quiche recipe. I tend to make it on Friday nights, when my vegetarian stepdaughter arrives home from the week at university with a large appetite for something home-cooked and satisfying. Serve with a bowl of soup or a salad, and you've got just that. What makes it so delicious in my opinion is the "secret ingredient" . . . mustard smeared on the bottom of the crust.I have noted one TBS in the recipe, but use as much as you need to provide an even coating. This quiche definitely tastes as good cold as warm from the oven, and makes a nice appetizer when cut in small portions, as well.
This is a lowfat, delicious quiche! I am always asked for this recipe (I serve often at brunches). Can be made ahead & baked next day, and/or frozen. Leftovers are wonderful when warmed in microwave and placed on toasted english muffin. My 2 year-old loves it too. NOTE: Do not use real crab meat; it will not come out the same.
For a completely vegetarian quiche, leave the crab out. I used this recipe for a friend that was having some problems with finding a lower fat recipe, using reduced fat cheese and liquid egg substitute. Obviously we can add the fat back in if you like!
This is a different spin on making quiche and it is delicious. To prevent the crust from becoming too brown I like to cover the pie shell crusts around the edges with aluminum foil until the last 10 minutes or so of baking.
I LOVE this quiche. It's crustless. The texture is fabulous. You can vary this in many ways by changing the filling ingredients. This one is bacon and Gruyere. I sometimes add green onion and 1/4 c dijon mustard to this recipe. Or I'll go totally different and just add lots of diced and sauteed veggies and omit the bacon and cheese. I like to serve it with a small salad and a cluster of seedless grapes or some melon.
