A recipe to use up those dibs and dabs that fill the fridge. My sister always served a version of this quiche at her Christmas brunch. I always served it at holiday parties.
"I've heard quiche to be a troublesome dish, but this recipe is easy and tastes great. I used chopped jarred roasted red peppers for the veggies. 8 oz of sharp Cheddar & 6 oz of Swiss made for a great cheese choice! Even if it was a bit shy of the 2 cups the recipe called for, the sharpness of the Cheddar made up for that. I was so impressed , I'm on my way to the store for spinich and cheese for a new variation today! I'll keep you all posted on the results. Enjoy!"
Mix eggs and milk well. Toss cheese with flour and add to egg and milk. Add meat and/or vegetables and seasonings. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees F. Bake for one hour or until set. If using ready-made crusts, this recipe will fill two in some cases. Reduce cooking time accordingly. Cover crust with foil if starting to brown too much.
Recipe is from my sister, Ione Lake

Bonnieenders 1y agoGreat! I used 2% milk, one less yolk, and two thirds cup each of cheddar and mozzarella (part 2%). Added diced tomatoes and chopped spinach and it was very good! Whole pie came to 2500 calories.

Unclelo 2y agoUsing whole milk, cheddar (it has the highest calories), and pork sausage, the calorie count is 2647 per 9' pie, or 331 per slice(1/8 pie). Just substituting nonfat milk and low or reduced fat cheese puts the count at about 1743 per pie or 218 per slice. The recipe is versatile it would be easy to lower the calories significantly.
GPITMan 2y agoGreat recipe, although the nutrition info is way out. 1400mgs of sodium I. 4 eggs, is not correct, and way to many calories.
