I have made this once a week for the past couple of weeks. I found that adding about a teaspoon of garlic made a big difference possibly because I used cheddar instead of swiss so it needed a little something else for flavour. I use leftovers for the meat. I cook something for Sunday dinner (roast, fajitas, roast chicken, etc) and at the same time I make up the egg mixture. Then after supper all I do is chop up the leftover meat, add it to the egg mixture, and I have supper ready for Monday. It isn't quite meatless Monday but since it is leftovers it is probably close.
Being lazy, I can whip this up without dirtying many dishes -- first, I put chopped meat, cheese, and veg into my quiche dish. (Kitchen shears are really useful here.)
Then I beat the eggs into a 4-cup measuring cup. Next I add 2 cups of milk. Mix again. Add flour. Mix again. Add baking powder. Mix.
Finally, I pour the liquids over the ingredients in my quiche pan. Pop the pan into the oven, and the measuring cup, wisk, and the shears into the dishwasher. Done.
Fabulous freezer meal recipe. Perfect way to use up leftover ham from holiday meals. When using ham in this recipe, I do not add any additional salt. Thanks for sharing this one!!
Loved it - easy and good. I used spinach, bacon, and cheddar.
I do a monthly meal swap with mu moms group so I thought Id try this out with my family first. We loved it. We normally don't like quiche, I think it was the pie crust we didn't really like. I'm happy I found this recipe now I can make quiche with whatever is on hand. I used chicken in a can and leftover mixed veggies. I doubled the recipe for my big family so I used a 9x13 pan. my picky hubby and step son ate 3x! So yes, this is what Im making for my girlfriends this month!
Freezes great. Wonderful concept!
I am more reviewing the idea than the recipe. I had my doubts, but it worked perfectly. I used bacon,cheese,eggs, broccoli. I also used a different pie crust recipe. My eggs turned slightly orange, not sure if it was from the cheese or what, but it tasted delicious. Perfect for a brunch with my picky family. I have another one in the freezer that I'm going to use for a weeknight dinner.
We really enjoyed this. I made it veggie, using spinach, onion, red and green peppers, and veggie meat crumbles. Mine took quite a bit longer to cook, about 75 minutes. The crust didn't quite work, it was a little gooey, but overall it's a great recipe. I'll be making more for the freezer!
This is the best quiche recipe I've ever come across. Easy, peasy, and so convenient to make ahead. My son loves these quiches and I love the fact that I don't have to make a separate crust! He's not a big fan of a thick crust and this one is just enough to stablize the quiche when cutting and serving without being so thick and heavy...it's thin and even. You can't even tell it's whole wheat! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
I loved how easy this was to put together, and take out of the freezer to enjoy later! One odd thing happened to mine, however. After I thawed and baked it, the quiche came out pretty salty. This may be because of the diced ham I put in the mixture. Next time I may try less ham and omit the additional salt altogether. I also added mushrooms, spinach and cheese. Will make this again, as I love an easy but delicious breakfast!
