This Quiche is fast, delicious, and freezes beautifully. You can put just about anything in it... This is a small farm, and we rarely do food small here, so I made four today because I have 8 dozen eggs to use up and gotta start somewhere... :)

How To Make everything but the kitchen quiche

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Dont forget emoji
    Remember, after the pie shell, all the ingredients are optional. It just depends on what you want to make.
  • whipping cream clinging to beater
    First, whip the cream until you get peaks. As if you were making whipped cream for a dessert, only no sugar.
  • eggs whisked in a bowl
    While the cream is whipping crack your eggs into another bowl and whisk them good. Like scrambled eggs.
  • pouring egg into cream mixture
    Once the cream has reached the desired texture, turn your beater on low, and slowly incorporate the eggs.

    This recipe makes TWO standard pie sized quiches. Half fill your prepared pie pans/crusts with your egg/cream mixture. Sprinkle desired seasonings in each.
  • 7
    Add your choice of chopped ingredients, 1/4 c of each to a prepared pie. For instance: for a spinach, onion, mushroom quiche, here I would add 1/4 c mushrooms, 1/4 c spinach, 1/4 c onion (all finely chopped and spread to cover the egg mixture).
  • 8
    Finish filling the pie shells the rest of the way with egg/cream mixture.
  • 9
    Sprinkle 1/4 c grated cheese over the top of each, if desired.
  • 10
    Bake for 15 minutes on the middle rack. Drop the temperature to 350 degrees F, and bake another 25-30 minutes. Quiche is done when knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • 11
    Allow quiches to set up out of the oven for 10 minutes before serving.

    To reheat: Thaw quiche for 1/2 hour on the counter and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.
