I love eggs. I don’t know why, but when I’m tired and just don’t want to cook, I go for eggs. But sometimes, a plain omelette isn’t enough to satisfy the craving. That’s when quiche is perfect. Feel free to play with the recipe below — add in a few extra vegetables or some fancy cheeses. Do you have company coming over? Make your quiche a little fancier with some spinach and brie.
Here’s a basic quiche recipe to get you started:
- 12 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
- ½ c. chopped onion
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 5 eggs
- 5 egg whites
- 1 c. heavy cream (can substitute half & half or milk)
- 2 Tbsp. flour
- 1 c. Swiss cheese
- ½ tsp. pepper
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. minced fresh chives
- Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium skillet. Add onion and cook until tender; add cooked, crumbled bacon and heat through.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, cream, and flour and mix well.
- Stir in salt, pepper, and cheese.
- Add onion and bacon from skillet and stir to combine.
- Pour into a greased 10 inch pie plate or similar sized baking dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 45 minutes or until golden brown and puffed up.
- Remove from oven; garnish with fresh minced chives.
- *Quiche can be eaten warm, cold, or at room temperature.
