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!
