Appropriate to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner, a quiche is made with a custard made of milk (or cream) and eggs that’ve been poured into a pie crust and baked. The options for quiche fillings are nearly endless! Feel free to mix and match your favorite fillings, using these measurements as guidelines for a 9-inch pie crust: 1 1/2- 2 cups of cooked vegetables and/or fresh herbs, ½-1 cup of cooked meat or sausage and ½-1 cup cheese. Need some inspiration? Here are some delicious combinations to try!
- For a Tex-Mex Quiche, use 1 cup cooked chorizo sausage, 1 cup roasted peppers and tomatoes, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1/2 cup chopped green onions and 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese.
- To make a classic Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Quiche, use 1 cup smoked salmon, 1 1/2 cups cooked asparagus spears, 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill or chives and 1 cup cubed cream cheese.
- For a vegetarian Mushroom and Kale Quiche, use 1 1/2 cups cooked, sliced mushrooms and 2 cups fresh steamed or roasted kale and 1 cup grated Swiss cheese.
