Quiche Three Ways


Ingredients ~

  • 1 home-made pie crust (deep dish), or
  • 1 pie crust (deep dish) 1 in the frozen food section; brand name ‘Pet-Ritz’ made by Pillsbury
  • 1 cup half & half or whole milk (okay, 2% works fine, too!)
  • 3 eggs, beaten lightly
  • Salt and pepper

 Method ~

Add one of the following options…

  • Option A:     1½ cups Swiss cheese  and ½ pound bacon       
  • Option B:      1½ cups Cheddar cheese and 1 cup ham
  • Option C:      1½ cups Cheddar cheese and onions, asparagus, etc.

Combine milk, eggs, salt, pepper in a bowl.  Spread one of the three options above over bottom of unbaked pie shell.  Pour the milk, eggs, salt and pepper mixture into the pie shell over the option you’ve chosen.

Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 40-50 minutes.

Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center.  If the toothpick comes out “dry” it’s done.  If you have to put it back in the oven, watch carefully that the crust doesn’t burn. Let it set for a few minutes before cutting and serving.  Serve with orange slices, other fruit and muffins.
