    Default Does anyone have a Quiche Recipe?

    I'm looking for a quiche recipe that isn't too difficult and that doesn't require too many extra ingredients. I'd like to be making an egg dish for dinner once a week because I'm really trying to stretch out our use of meats for dinner. Adding another non-meat meal will certainly help our budget.

    So, does anyone have a quiche recipe that they'd be willing to share?

    Amy I went through my cookbooks and found about 5. Most of them though call for quite a few ingredients and some veggies.

    Hopefully someone else sees this and can give you a good one.

    I have two easy ones. This is from my head so I might ammend it tomorrow.

    Version one

    Pkt filo pastry
    4 eggs
    1/3 cup cream or milk
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    herbs - whatever you like, but parsley and chives are nice in this
    tomato slices

    Take 4 sheets of pastry and coat them lightly with olive oil. Filo pastry is very light and airy - not a heavy pastry and can be bought at the supermarket. So the 4 sheets just have a light coating of olive oil and are placed one on top of the other in a quiche dish. Form it into the dish and tidy up the ends. I cut them off with scissors.

    Combine all the other ingredients, except the tomatoes, and wack it in the pastry, then carefully place the tomato slices on the top in a neat circle.

    Cook in the oven on 375F for about 20-30 minutes, or until the top is golden.

    Version 2
    Do exactly the same but without the pastry. You need to grease your quiche dish well, but if you do that, the egg won't stick to the sides.

    You can also add things like spring onions, chopped ham, asparagus etc.

    BACON & CHEDDAR QUICHE
    3-4 slices bacon, chopped
    6 eggs
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Dash pepper
    8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
    Fry the bacon until brown and crispy; drain on paper towel. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the cream, salt and pepper; whisk well. Arrange the cheese and bacon evenly in the bottom of a greased 9 1/2" glass pie plate. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the cheese. Bake at 350º 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
    Makes 6 servings
    Can be frozen


    We make this one quite often, I also sometimes will add mushrooms if I have them on hand!!

    Sausage and Cheese Quiche

    1 unbaked 9" pie shell
    1 pound of sausage
    2 cups of Cheddar cheese
    2 tablespoons of flour
    2 teaspoons of parsley flakes
    3 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup of chopped onions
    2/3 cup of evaporated milk

    Preheat oven to 375ºF. Cook sausage and drain well. Combine sausage, onion, cheese, flour and parsley; mix well. Spread in pie shell. Beat together eggs and milk. Slowly pour over the sausage mixture. Bake 35-40 minutes.

    You can take the basic recipe here and substitute whatever you have on hand... bacon or ham for the sausage...add some cubed cooked potatoes...spinach...whatever you have on hand. You can also do a quick search on Google for quiche recipes and have about 50,000 to choose from. lol

    I don't have a recipe to share with you; just some reassurance that whatever you do, it'll come out great. I make crustless quiches all the time, never using recipes, and I don't think I've ever made a bad one. I just toss in whatever I've got handy: some combination of eggs, cheese, half n' half, cream cheese, dry grated parmesan, and veggies. I think I've even added tofu.

    One minor issue with some recipes is that by the time you pay for certain ingredients, you could have done a cheaper meat dish. Not sure about your neck of the woods, but heavy cream is very expensive here. Don't be afraid to cut back or alter recipes - they should still work.

    I've never tried quiche. After seeing the recipe I think I may actually try it. Thanks.

    I believe there's one in the Tightwad Gazette. If you like, I'll try and find it for you!

    Iuse the one in the TWG too! Also, check out Bisquik's Impossible Pies. there are lonts of kinds and they make their own crusts. Cheeseburger pie, yummmmmmm!

    Ham and broccoli is one of my favorites. I also like sausage with garlic (I like anything with garlic!) and mushrooms. I tend to use these to use up leftover odds and ends--a half cup of broccoli, one slice of ham, a few mushrooms, etc. They are frugal when made Amy's way.
