... a recipe that will serve to make any kind of quiche you like. I believe it was from Julia Child. The clever thing about it is that one simply uses a two-cup measuring jug, puts in the eggs and then adds cream until the desired level is reached.
Below the recipe are a few suggested fillings - these are strewn over the bottom of the crust before the filling is poured in. Certainly any other fillings of your choice may be substituted.
Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190°C
In a 2-cup measuring jug , place the eggs and seasonings. Add enough cream to fill the measuring cup to the 1-1/4 cup level (you’ll need about 1/2 cup of cream). Blend together the cream and eggs mixture using a fork or whisk - just to incorporate thoroughly.
Sprinkle the filling of your choice over the bottom of one 8-inch or 9-inch baked pie shell. Pour in the custard mixture (the liquid should come up to about 1/4-inch from the rim of the pie crust shell).
Bake the quiche at 375°F / 190°C for about 35 minutes or until the thin blade of a knife, inserted near the middle of the quiche (about an inch or so out) comes out clean.
The center should still be a little bit “jiggly” - the custard will complete cooking as it stands after baking.
5-6 slices crisp, cooked bacon, crumbled
4 ounces (1cup / 110g) coarsely grated cheese
optional (for cheese or any other filling) – sprinkle a little cheese over the top of the quiche and dot with butter before baking
1/4 cup, smoked salmon – chopped; add dill or parsley
1/2 to 3/4 cup, cooked broccoli or other vegetable of your choice
optional – add 1/4 cup, grated cheese to vegetable
1/2 to 3/4 cup, diced, sautéed (or caramelized) onion
1/2 cup or as desired, leftover shredded meat or poultry
diced, sautéed jalapeño or other chile (to taste)
fresh snipped herbs of your choice
