Amazing Quiche

Virginia McGee


Every once in a while we have Quiche for dinner. I've always made it the same way. Tonight I didn't have some of the ingredients so I had to improvise. This is what they call a fortuitous circumstance. This was the tastiest, fluffy-ist (I know not a word) quiche I've every had. Give it a try. It's Scrumdilliuptious! (I know, that's not a word either)lol.
I wish I'd thought to take a picture. I think the ricotta was what did it. Even though I didn't have the diced ham I added it to the recipe anyway. I think that would have made it even better.

15 Min


1 Hr


6 large
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c
ricotta cheese
1/4 c
1/2 c
sliced mushrooms
6 slice
american cheese
1/2 c
diced ham
1 c
cut spinich
1 Tbsp
dried onions
1 tsp
dried garlic
1 tsp
italian spices
1/8 tsp
9 inch pie shell home made or frozen

Directions Step-By-Step

Set your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare your pie shell.
For me that meant taking it out of the freezer, lol.
I did have some piece work to do on it. My husband had set the ice-cream on it so it was broken up. I just put the pieces back where they belong, dampened it with water and sh-mushed it back together. Hay, it worked.
To a large to medium bowl add all the ingredients, except the slices of American Cheese and whip with a large fork or whisk.
Pour it all into your pie shell.
Open your oven door and add a cookie sheet with a square of tin foil centered on it. That's just encase but mine didn't overflow at all.
Carefully place your quiche in the middle of the tin foil on the cookie sheet.
Close the door and bake for 45-60 minutes.
Here's the tricky part. Everyone's oven cooks different so 45 minutes for my oven may not work for yours. After about 45 minutes pull out the cookie sheet half way and see if the center is cooked. If the pie shell isn't browned and the middle wiggles cook it another 5-10 minutes.
After it's cooked, it's time to pull it out of the oven cookie sheet and all. Lay the slices of American Cheese over the top of the quiche. I laid three in a row down the middle and one on either side. Then I cut the remaining two slices into triangles and covered the corners so the whole top was covered,(when I say cut, I mean I folded them over into triangles). Put it back into the oven for 5-10 minutes. Five minutes if you just want it to melt. Ten minutes if you want it to brown a little.
Remove your Quiche from the oven and turn it off before you forget. Let it sit for 5 minutes and it will be easier to cut. I usually make this for dinner and cut it into 4th's. Then we have a slice each for dinner (there are two of us). Then we have a slice each left over for breakfast. This time however, my husband who usually eats one slice ate two and my grandson was spending the night so between the three of us it was all gone.
