I've already posted my basic quiche recipe (find it here), but given how often I make, eat and share them I think it needs a revisit.
The basic idea is you take a pie crust, sprinkle some cheese on the bottom, add your filling of choice and then pour a beaten mixture of eggs, milk and seasoning over it.* Sprinkle some more cheese on top and that's that. As for the filling, the world is your oyster. Paint the town red. Seize the day. Etc.
Some of my favorite quiche fillings are:
- spinach & feta
- broccoli & cheddar
- peppers & onions
- tomato, mozzarella & basil
- roasted asparagus
- green beans & goat cheese
- roasted potatoes & rosemary
- zucchini & squash
* For a regular pie crust, I use two eggs and 2/3 cup milk (or half & half, or cream). If you have a deeper dish or larger pie crust you might need three eggs and 1 cup milk. Use salt and pepper and whatever herbs you have at your disposal. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until bubbly.
What's your go-to meal? Doesn't have to be fancy. In fact, the simpler the better.
