Savory and creamy, this quiche recipe is easy to make and great for adventurous cooks, who can use their creativity with the fillings. After beating together the eggs, milk, and seasonings, several additional ingredients of your choice can be added. Spinach and sausage or bacon and scallions are only a few choices of add-ins that bring the perfect touch to this dish. One cup of cheese is also needed to finish this quiche, and a few alternatives are goat, white cheddar, Swiss, or gruyere cheese. Trying out different ingredients is fun and easy, and they can bring a wide variety of flavors to this simple base recipe. Inside the thin and flaky crust is a soft, custard like quiche, and each mouth full is simply delicious. Let’s get cooking!
1 unbaked pie crust (homemade or store bought)
½ cup whole milk
½ heavy cream
1 cup shredded/crumbled cheese (see the top types of cheese)
2 cups add-ins (see the top for ideas)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and place the pie crust in a pie dish. Then tear off a pieces of parchment paper and crinkle it up before lining the inside of the crust with it. Evenly fill the paper with dried beans or pie weights, and bake for around fifteen minutes or until the edges are light brown. Remove the weights, and prick the bottom of the pie crust with a fork. Bake again for seven minutes or until the bottom of the crust begins to brown. Turn the heat down to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and using a whisk attachment, mix together the eggs, whole milk, heavy cream, salt, and pepper on high speed. Add the cheese and add-ins before pouring the batter into the pre-baked pie crust. Once in the oven, let the quiche cook for approximately forty-five minutes or until the center is set. Let the quiche cool for fifteen minutes or refrigerate overnight before serving.
To make the cooking process even quicker, you can prepare the filling while the crust bakes, and garnish your quiche with fresh herbs and more cheese before sliding it onto a serving platter. Have fun while cooking this recipe and enjoy!
