Originally quiche is one delicious cheese and cream-filled crusted pie and popular in French.


Here is an adapted Italian version of how American Italian quiche came about.

Whenever mom would have the ladies over the house to play pinochle back in the 1960s, she would make brunch.

Great For Packing In Lunches!




There would be appetizers trays, the punch of some kind, and a baked quiche for lunch with a big Italian antipasto.



It was always a treat when there were leftovers.



I love quiche.



She just called it a zucchini pie.

Quiche and Pies



Quiche is cream, eggs, and crust.



As the years went on I adapted it to many other ingredients.



Some pies were full of meat, others just vegetables.



At times I even omitted the crust and just made it all egg and vegetables.

Make It Crustless If Watching Carbs!




The cheese and crust are the best part.



But if you are on a diet or watching carbs, make it the way you want.



Either way with or without meat it's truly delicious!



Cheese, no crust, meat equals a great Keto diet!

Mushroom Zucchini Quiche

prep time: cook time: total time:
This is a delicious Mushroom Zucchini Quiche just perfect for brunch or breakfast even dinner!

ingredients:

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 shredded  Swiss (preferred cheese), Parmesan, Monterrey Jack,  Mozzarella. provolone or a medley of all them. More for the top if you love cheese!
1 cup heavy cream (or in a pinch half and half)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
salt, pepper to taste
1 teaspoon mixed Italian herbs, basil, parsley, oregano.

Options: 
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 Vegetable:

Suggestions: 1/2 cup of any of these chopped vegetables in combination.

 In this recipe, I used shredded zucchini and mushrooms.

 Other suggestions: finely chopped eggplant, spinach, broccoli, broccoli rabe cooked, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, onions,  roasted peppers, grated hash browns potatoes, chopped escarole or any greens, jalapenos, or olives. 

Any other favorites can be added to this basic recipe.

instructions:

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 ) Fold into the egg mixture.

Mix the quiche ingredients together for around 3 minutes. Add meats or other vegetables is using.

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 or pie plate. 

Note: I like to brush my dough with an egg wash also before baking.

Roll out dough to fit into your preferred pan and pre-bake dough for 5 minutes on 350 degrees till set not browned.  

Take out slightly baked shell and pour your quiche' mixture over the dough. 

Sprinkle with shredded cheese or Parmesan cheese and bake on 400 degrees until browned and set in the middle. 

This takes between 45 to 60 minutes until the middle is set.

Let quiche rest 5 minutes before serving to cut easier.

    1. By using the 9 inch and deep dish it takes about an hour or until the middle is set. I usually slide a knife in the center to see if it comes out clean.
