Description

This is such a simple yummy recipe! Good for breakfast or a simple dinner.

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • 1 dash Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 cups Grated Swiss Cheese
  • ¼ cups Chopped Onions
  • 1 whole Pastry Pie Crust

Preparation

These are my basic ingredients. I usually add a meat or a veggie to the quiche. Ham, sausage, bacon, whatever I have in the fridge. You can also add spinach or even crab meat to it. It is a very versatile recipe and can be changed around per your tastes.

Mix all the liquid ingredients and seasonings together in a bowl. Do not over mix it; I just whisk it together.

Use your favorite pastry pie crust recipe. I do not have one that I love, so I usually use a pre-made crust (gasp). It is easy and quick and it saves me a lot of time. Pioneer Woman has a good crust recipe on her site.

Place your grated cheese, onions and whatever filling you choose to put in your quiche in your pastry crust. Sprinkle it around and make sure it is all evenly distributed. Pour the egg mixture over the filling ingredients. You can add a bit more cheese on the top if you like.

Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes or until it starts to get nice and brown on top. After it comes out of the oven, let it sit for about 10 minutes. It will make it easier to cut and serve.

I hope you enjoy this quiche as much as I do.

Loved this quiche! Used ground turkey and fresh spinach. I did bake it for 55 minutes and it was perfect–not too runny, not to firm! I’ve always had trouble with quiches not setting up properly. This one was a welcome exception. Will definitely make it again!

Awesome recipe! Great ratio of eggs to cream. I added caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, and a few slices of bacon along with the cheese and it was amazing. My quiche hating husband thought it was wonderful and told me to make it again. Thanks for the great recipe.

I used my own adds (spinach, mushrooms, and bacon) but my husband raved about the “custard”. And I agreed with him. The ratio is perfect. This bakes up nice and firm and with a good rest it slices and serves beautifully. I will probably use this recipe always.

Dee-Lish-Us!!!!
Decided to carmelize my onions in a little butter – let them cool while I got a quick pre-bake on the pie crust (frozen deep dish definitely the way to go when looking for convenience) Added a healthy shot of diced ham, shredded swiss and co-jack, and then the egg mixture (to which I added about a tbsp of dijon)
Perfection – Best Quiche I’ve ever eaten!
