Got this Carnation recipe a while back. With all the fresh vegies out there is summer it sounded so good I had to try it!
- 1 9" unbaked pie shell (4-cup volume)
- 1 1⁄2 cups sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup evaporated milk
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated & divided
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 3⁄4 cups fresh tomatoes or 1 3⁄4 cups canned diced tomatoes, drained
- 1⁄4 cup chopped ripe olives (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Whisk sour cream, evaporated milk, 1/4 cup cheese, eggs, salt, and pepper in medium bowl; pour into pie shell.
- Combine remaining cheese, breadcrumbs, basil, and garlic in small bowl; sprinkle over sour cream mixture.
- Top with tomatoes and olives.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
- Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes before serving.
- Note: If you are going to freeze the quiche for later, freeze on a tray; then wrap with freezer paper, heavy-duty aluminum foil, or slide it into a freezer bag. Seal, label and freeze up to two months.
- Do not thaw before reheating.
- Unwrap and bake in a 375°F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
Wonderful! I'd forgotten about Quiche - very popular in the 70's. I needed to take food to a sick friend and this looked like just the thing. It turned out beautifully - so pretty to look at, I didn't want to give it up lol. I used fresh tomatoes and basil and decorated the top with tiny basil leaves. Today, I'm making one for my family.
My husband says this is the best quiche ever! I made the filling, poured it in the pie shells and froze them unbaked. The day we made them I put them in the oven frozen and baked them for a little over an hour and they were very very good!
