  • 16 oz
    heavy whipping cream (half & half can also be used)
  • 8 md
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

How To Make 5-step easy quiche

  • 1
    Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  • 2
    In a large bowl, wisk together heavy cream, eggs, salt & pepper.
  • 3
    Spread half the shredded cheese (4-6 oz.) in each frozen pie shell evenly. Sprinkle your choice of “Mix In Idea” on top of cheese in each pie shell.
  • 4
    Pour half of the egg/cream mixture over each pie shell. Gently submerse any cheese and “mix in” with wisk or fork.
  • 5
    Bake pies for 15 minutes @ 400 degrees. Reduce temperature to 350, and bake an additional 30-35 minutes, until golden brown. Allow pies to cool approx. 20-30 minutes before cutting. Refrigerate leftover portions. Pies can also be frozen!

    *Mix in ideas: Frozen Chopped Spinach, thawed, squeezed DRY, and separated Frozen veggies (broccoli, asparagus, etc.) chopped, steamed and drained well Fresh veggies, chopped (mushrooms, onions, broccoli, tomato, etc.) 1 3oz. pkg crumbled 100% real bacon (in the salad dressing isle) Pre-cooked frozen sausage links or patties, thawed and chopped Chopped ham or turkey Sautéed onion or mushroom Dry mustard and chopped red pepper to spice it up a bit Garlic, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, or any other ideas you have! TIPS: The amount of “Mix In’s” & cheese used depends on your taste. More cheese, less “mix in” or vise versa. If you just want a cheese quiche, you can add even more cheese!!
