Sunday Brunch Quiche

Hey All, as my first guest post here on Kat's food blog I'd thought I'd go with one of my all time favorites, the quiche. Now although the recipe is only for one quiche, I can speak from personal experience that if you're making it for any more than just you, you're going to have to make at least two. Luckily, this is an incredibly easy recipe and the portions are simple to multiple.


Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream or half and half
  • 1 9 inch pie crust
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
    • I recommend a blend of swiss and gouda
  • Your choice of fillings. My go to ones are:
    • 1/2 lb cooked and crumbled bacon
    • 2 cups chopped and cooked organic kale
    • sautéed homegrown mushrooms and onions
  • salt and pepper
Bake: 375°F          Bake Time: 35-45 minutes          Serves: 3-4 people

How To Put It Together

1. In a large bowl beat eggs until well blended.
2. Add cream, salt, and pepper, and blend.
3. Add cheese to the egg mixture and stir.
4. Line a pie tin with the crust and spread the veggie filling evenly.
5. Pour the egg and cheese mixture on top, letting it fill almost to the top of the crust.
6. Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes. If you used half and half instead of heavy cream, let it cook a little longer to cook off the extra water.

Serving
  • Quiche can be served immediately or frozen whole and reheated in the oven later.
