Quiche Sherry's Way

Sherry Blizzard

Quiche is a lovely and easy thing to throw together and put on the table in 1 hour. Fill the shell with ingredients you love and call it good. Today, I am using leftovers in my fridge and ingredients that are readily available from the pantry.

My absolute favorite is simple......Spinach and Guyerre Cheese with a tiny bit of bacon on the bottom. Use left-over chicken and green chile, sun dried tomatoes and basil, anything goes with quiche.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in this recipe - and it's a great combination! All the flavors made my taste buds sing. I had cheddar and provolone in my fridge, so I used that. Great for brunch or even a lighter dinner.

Ingredients

2
pie shells
4
eggs, beaten
2 c
half and half
pinch
sea salt
pinch
pepper
4 slice
bacon, fried and crumbled
1/4 c
red onion, diced fine
1 c
crab or ham or any veg you want (i like spinach)
1 c
sliced mushrooms, sauteed lightly in butter with a pinch of basil, sweet marjoram and oregano
1 c
artichoke bottoms drained and diced
1 c
grated cheese (your choice: havarti dill works great with a fish ingredient, swiss is one of my favs but cheddar or jack is also good.)
dusting
paprika to color
Pinch
a good pinch of thyme crushed between your fingers over the top

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line your pie dish with a crust.
2
Next, put in the crumbled bacon, onion, crab OR ham OR any veg you want. Add the mushrooms, artichokes (zucchini, broccoli, spinach, anything goes...)
3
Top with grated cheese. I have used many different cheeses. You know what you like. Gouda, feta, Havarti, even goat cheese works.
4
Stir together the wet ingredients and pour over the top of your quiche. I like to gently massage the wet into the dry, just briefly before putting into the oven.
5
The last thing to do is sprinkle a light dusting of paprika and crushing thyme between your fingers all over the top.
6
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Turn the oven down to 300 and bake for another 40 minutes or until the center comes out clean when penetrated with a sharp knife. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting to serve, or cool completely, then cover in foil or freeze to reheat later.
