Recipe for Quiche ala Susan

I think Tami and Karen really REALLY liked the quiche.Rachel and I did too. Hannah made “the face” and didnt even taste it…texture issues. Anywho, it turned out very well for being one of those thrown together things. But that’s kinda what a quiche is right? Throw it all in a dish and cook it!

Preheat oven to 375. Prepare an unbaked pie crust in a 10″ deep dish pie pan. Use your favorite unsweetened pie crust or a bought one. Be sure it is up a bit past the edge of your pie dish – you gotta alotta stuff to put in there!

Start with two-three cups of your favorite veggies. I use Baby Bella mushrooms, fresh asparagus and leeks. Saute them in a little olive oil or butter – I used a little of each!

Grate 3 cups of your favorite cheese. I used equal parts of Gouda, Feta, Asiago, Cheddar, Swiss and Mozzarella. Yes we always have this many cheeses! I could have also used Provolone, American, Parmesan or Romano!

Spread the cheeses evenly over the bottom of the crust, reserving about 3/4 a cup to sprinkle over the top.

Spread your veggies over the cheese…it already looks yummy doesnt it???

Whisk together 6 eggs and 1 cup of half and half. Add salt and pepper to taste. Be sure your eggs are well beaten.

Pour this over the veggies being sure to cover evenly.

Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top of your quiche.

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until golden and firm in the middle.

Let it sit for about 10 minutes before cutting.

I will get the Brownie recipe to you tomorrow…but dont they look delish?!

Simply put, this was the best quiche I’ve ever eaten. Nope, not getting paid to say that either. Thanks for the great food and great company. You know it will be hard to get rid of me if you continue to put that kind of food in front of me.

And Rachel’s brownies are out of this world, too!!!

Take care, and both of you keep cookin’!

Talk soon, Tami

Now that looks and sounds decidedly delicious Susan!! Can’t wait to see the brownie recipe!

Oh My Gosh! That quiche looks so Yummy! I already have dinner in the oven tonight, but if I had read this a tad bit earlier I would have definitely had to of made a trip to the store! I cannot wait to try this! I know we can add or delete whatever…I’m curious to know what a leek tastes like? Is it like an onion?
Thanks for posting this delicious recipe =)
