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 Gruyere cheese with a tiny bit of bacon on the bottom. Use leftover chicken and green chile, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil. Anything goes with quiche!

Pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in this quiche recipe - and it's a great combination. All the flavors made our taste buds sing. We used ham, artichokes, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and Swiss cheese. Yum! It makes two quiches, so this is perfect for a holiday brunch.

How To Make quiche sherry's way

  • Pie crust prepared.
    1
    Line your pie dish with a crust.
  • Vegetables and meat added to the pie filling.
    2
    Next, put in the crumbled bacon, onion, crab OR ham, OR any veg you want. Add the mushrooms, and artichokes (zucchini, broccoli, spinach, anything goes...).
  • Grated cheese on top of meat and vegetables.
    3
    Top with grated cheese. I have used many different kinds of cheese. You know what you like. Gouda, feta, Havarti, and even goat cheese work.
  • Wet ingredients poured into pie crust.
    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 it into the oven.
  • Thyme and paprika sprinkled over the quiche.
    5
    The last thing to do is sprinkle a light dusting of paprika and crushing thyme between your fingers all over the top.
  • Baking the quiche.
    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.
