Breakfast Quiche Recipe

Sunday, August 30, 2009
Quiche is a French delicious egg baked into a crust with lots of cheese in it.  We love this dish.

Breakfast Quiche

1 pie crust to fit 9 inch deep dish quiche pan. Homemade or store bought crust. (You can also use phyllo dough which is a buttery flaky crust.)

Quiche Filling: 

4 eggs

1 - 1/2 cups  Swiss (preferred cheese), Parmesan, Monterrey Jack,  Mozzarella. provolone or a medley of all them.

1 cup heavy cream (or in a pinch half and half)

Mix together above ingredients.

Garnish: Parmesan cheese 

Suggestions for meat lovers if using:

Use 1/2 cup of any of these chopped meats or in combination. Italian cooked loose sausage drained, ham, crumbled fried bacon, Canadian bacon, country style sausage, pepperoni, capicola, prosciutto . Quiche however is usually meatless.

For those that like vegetable quiche:

Suggestions: 1/2 cup of any of these chopped vegetable in combination. Eggplant, spinach, broccoli, broccoli rabe cooked,  tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, roasted peppers, grated hash browns potatoes, escarole, jalapenos, or olives. Any other favorites can be added to this basic recipe.

Any combo's go together well, however, (using all vegetables you will need to squeeze out the juice of several of them before adding as this will make it too runny ) pick your choice. Add to egg mixture.

Spread dough to fit thinly in a greased assorted style pans,  IE: greased Quiche' pans with removable bottoms, or you can also use cupcake pans, even a deep flan pan works well. Roll out dough to fit into your preferred pan and  pre- bake dough for 7 minutes on 350 degrees till set not browned.

Take out and pour your quiche' mixture over the dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake on 400 degrees until brown...let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Note: Quiche is a savory open pastry crust with a filling made with eggs milk or cream with more than one cheese usually. You can add meat, vegetables or seafood. Serve hot or cold.
