Roasted Red Pepper Quiche

Every now and then, I go on a quiche kick. This one is a little different from the usual fare, and can even make a nice first course. From Good Food Magazine May 1988. For the prepared tart shell, I recommend my recipe for Basic Tart Shell.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare prebaked tart shell for custard-filled tart or pie.
  2. Heat boiler.
  3. Broil pepper about 4 inches from heat, turning as needed, until blackened on all sides, 15-20 minutes. Let steam in closed plastic bag or covered bowl 5 minutes to loosen skin.
  4. Peel off blackened skin, then cut out stem. Cut pepper in half, remove seeds and white pith, and cut into 1/2-inch strips.
  5. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Heat butter in small skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Let cool.
  7. Whisk remaining ingredients except whole chives together in mixing bowl, then whisk in cooled shallot. Place tart pan on baking sheet. Pour egg mixture evenly into tart shell. Arrange pepper strips in sunburst pattern on tart and place whole chives between strips.
  8. Bake tart until custard is set and pastry is lightly browned, 15-20 minutes. Transfer tart to wire rack and let cool 10 minutes before serving.

This is a fabulous quiche!! We all enjoyed it for breakfast this morning. I didn't get a pretty pattern, but had fun free-forming the design. The flavors are wonderful. I will add this to my Best of 2015 file. Thank you!

I love roasted red peppers and they were delicious in this quiche. I used a regular pie crust instead of the tart shell. Therefore, the recipe didn't quite fill the crust. I would add another egg when making it again. Thanks for sharing a good one!
