I like most all types of food. Be it Italian,
Greek, German, French, Chinese, Southern,
Southwest, Midwest, etc...
I will try almost anything once.
I really don't have a favorite.. but any type
of Seafood would be at the top of my list
when dining out if I have a choice..
Here you will find a few more of my favorites
I make at home..
I hope you will find a new recipe you would
like to try among these I have chosen..
And Some Variations..
1 9" Pie Shell
1 1/2 cups Half n Half
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss or Cheddar Cheese
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
Prebake pie shell.
Beat together eggs, cream, salt, and pepper.
Add cheese to pie shell and pour egg mixture over.
Bake in a 350' oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until
a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before cutting
into wedges to serve.
Add 6 slices of crisp bacon..crumbled, 1/4 cup
diced onion, and a dash of nutmeg to cheese
prior to adding the egg mixture.
Bake as directed.
For the traditional Quiche Lorraine use swiss cheese.
You may also use 1 cup thinly sliced and
chopped ham instead of bacon.
Thaw and drain 10 oz. pkg of spinach, add to
cheese with 1/4 tsp dry mustard and 1/4 tsp
tarragon prior to adding egg mixture.
Bake as directed.
Try using combination of crumbled feta cheese
Thaw and drain 10 oz. pkg of broccoli and cauliflower.
Add to cheese with 1/4 cup diced onion, 1/4 cup
diced mushrooms, 1/4 cup diced sweet red pepper,
and 1/4 cup shredded carrots, prior to adding
egg mixture. Bake as directed.
This dish is wonderful using a combination
of swiss and cheddar, but try your own
favorite kind of cheese.
Instead of using a pie shell, line a lightly
greased pie plate with tortillas-tearing
them to fit as necessary.
Brown 1 lb ground beef or turkey with 1/2 cup
diced spanish onion. Drain well.
Stir in 1 tsp each: garlic, chili powder,
oregano, cumin, and thyme into beef mixture.
Pour meat mixture into pie plate,
on top of tortillas.
Add cheddar cheese then egg mixture and
bake as directed.
Just prior to serving, spread top with
sour cream and top with diced tomatoes,
and shredded lettuce.
Serve a dollop of salsa on the side.
According to your taste, try adding diced
avocado and black olives also.
This is a spicy one that is definitely not
your average quiche!!
Experiement and Enjoy.. When you serve a quiche
just add a salad and you have a quick and easy
meal for your family or company...
