I start with the recipe and add whatever I like to it. This is my go to Quiche recipe.
I noticed that my mixture didn't fill piecrust, it was about an inch below sides. I think next time I will add about 3 more eggs and another 1/4 cup o milk. It all tasted great, I had mushrioms, cheese, I used fresh spinach, parsley, cilantro, onion.
I also throw in a few tablespoons of butter, cubed up pretty small. It makes the pie taste richer and helps the crust to brown. I try to bake the crust for about ten minutes before I add the mix. I also cover the edges with foil so the crust does not get too brown.
I was SO irritated looking for the basics of quiche and then finally was so happy to find your recipe!!! It is our family favorite with a few twists now and we will forever eat quiche and know that real men really do eat quiche!!!!!!
Great basic recipe. Easy to add your or flare and flavor.
Sooo good. And no cream!<br/><br/>I used it with this easy quiche base. http://www.food.com/recipe/quick-n-easy-quiche-crust-18185<br/><br/>I added roasted pumpkin, and cooked up zucchini and onion in a pan. Also half a cup of cheese and a dollop of leftover sour cream with the milk. Salt and pepper. Topped with cherry tomato halves. <br/><br/>Used the roasted pumpkin seeds in a fresh salad. <br/><br/>Amazing.
Declicious. I threw in some leftover meatloaf but otherwise cooked as directed. I would probably cook at the most 45 minutes next time, my crust was a little toasty (if you will). Great recipe.
This made for a great breakfast! I used locally-grown fresh eggs and added cheddar, mozzarella, bacon, mushrooms, and red and green peppers from the garden. I didn't have any pre-made crusts, so I used Quick n Easy Quiche Crust recipe from Food.com. The possibilities for this recipe are endless. Thanks!
Best basic quiche recipe, ever! Great for using up those extra CSA vegetables! I've been using a cup of sauteed spinach and swiss chard (stems and all), a cup of grated swiss, and a handful of real bacon bits. Um um good! I think tonight I am going to swap out the spinach for some sauteed summer squash...
I made the egg base exactly as written with no substitutions. My first try with add-ins: Colby jack cheese, spinach, mushrooms, onions that I saut?ed first before adding to the egg mixture. My husband has asked for this recipe again with leftover steak. So I added saut?ed mushrooms, onion, peppers, and cheese. I called it the Philly Quiche, and he LOVED IT! My next experiment is going to be adding diced country ham and whatever veggies. I love this recipe because I can throw in whatever leftovers are in the fridge, and make a tasty dinner (and breakfast leftovers).
