Oh.my.gosh. I am living out my dream of having my own cooking show thanks to iVillage.com! Ok, I don’t really have my own cooking show, but I have this great video that shows me cracking eggs and stuff. It’s part of the iVillage Mealtime Makeover Community Challenge which kicked off yesterday! Please take a moment to sign up and inspire your mealtime over the next four weeks and beyond! And check out my “recipe” for quiche below…it’s pretty open to interpretation.
I make quiche a lot! It’s an easy meal that requires what I usually have in the fridge…eggs, milk, and cheese. I normally keep frozen pie crusts stocked in my freezer as well.
The beauty of using frozen pie crust…you can make it look homemade. Crimp it, flute it, own it like you made it from scratch, baby!
My basic recipe uses 3 eggs, 1 cup of milk ,and 1 cup of grated cheese. Swiss cheese has a nice mellow flavor that blends well, plus bonus calcium! Try experimenting with whatever cheeses your family enjoys…you really can’t go wrong!
As far as jazzing it up with other ingredients on hand, the skies the limit! I usually make two quiches at a time, one simple with frozen corn and one with anything and everything from broccoli and green onions to chopped spinach and sauteed mushrooms.
Just place your ingredients and cheese in the pie crust and sprinkle a little salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs and milk together and pour over the top. Bake at 425 F until the eggs have set to a golden brown.
Call it quiche, call it scrambled egg pie…once you make your first one, you’ll be hooked! Make them for guests, bring them to potlucks, enjoy as an easy meal with your family and maybe even some leftovers!
