Recipe Repeat: Create Your Own Quiche
We had quiche for dinner last night! Aside from me leaving it in the oven a tad too long… it was delicious. I originally posted this recipe last October. It was my first time making quiche and we loved it. So much that this quiche makes a monthly appearance.
I adapted this basic recipe from Real Simple
- Olive oil
- 1 large onion (chopped)
- 1/2 cup chopped ham (add whatever meat you like, or omit this.)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup skim or 2% milk
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 8 ounces grated cheese of choice (I used Parrano)
- 1 store bought frozen pie crust in tin
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large pan, drizzle a little olive oil and bring to medium heat. Add onion, ham, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until onions are tender. Add parsley to pan. Cook for 3 minutes until tender. Remove from heat.
In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, cheese, and garlic powder. Add onion mixture to egg mixture. Pour into pie crust.
Place pie crust on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, or until filling is set and a knife comes out clean when inserted. Let rest for 5 minutes, cut into wedges and enjoy!
You know, I love quiche and I hardly EVER think to make it for dinner!! I need to get on that!
I love egg dishes for dinner and I really love recipes that you can adapt to what you have on hand! This looks amazing!
Breakfast for dinner is the best! This looks delicious and easy to make. All things we need on busy week nights.
