Quiche – Fancy, Healthy, & Delicious!
Quiche makes a really great (and healthy!) breakfast meal because it’s not only so easy to make, you can add your own choice of ingredients making it your very own healthy breakfast that will keep you feeling good throughout the day. A quiche can be described as an open-faced pastry with a filling that consists of eggs and cheese as the main ingredients. A quiche is a French food dish that has been around for hundreds of years, and can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Quiche is a very versatile dish! You can make quiche with a crust or without, it’s up to you! You can cheat (as many of us do!) and buy a store bought pie crust, or you can make your own with the recipe below.
Easy Quiche Recipe
This is one of my favorite quiche recipes because it’s so simple to make. You basically add all the ingredients into one big bowl and then pour it into a well-greased pan to bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
6 large free-range chicken eggs 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or your favorite!) 1/2 cup non-fat milk 1 tbsp butter, optional 1 tbsp cream, optional Add-Ins -Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Swiss Cheese, Goat Cheese, Brie Cheese -Mushrooms -Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, -Onion, Green Onion (sauté onions first for flavor and texture) -Tomatoes, Red/Green Bell Peppers -Sausage, Bacon -Crab (also add 1/8 cup of mayo)
Add the eggs and milk together in a large bowl and mix well. Add the cheese along with any or all ingredients you want in the quiche, and gently mix well again. Pour into a well-greased 9 x 9 pan, and put into a 375° oven for @ 45 minutes. Quiche is done when it is a nice golden brown on the top and fairly firm to the touch.
Mix 1 cup of flour with @ 2/3 stick of unsalted cold butter (cut into small cubes) and 1/2 tsp salt. Add in a little less than 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of cold water. Mix well and then add the egg. Use your fingers or a pastry knife for best results. Put in fridge for about half an hour. Take out, roll out, and press into pan. Easy!
If you want to watch your cholesterol, use an egg substitute. If you’re vegan, use almond or rice milk instead of cow’s milk, as well as a vegan cheese instead of regular cheese. If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, use vegan bacon. or soy sausages.
