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:

INGREDIENTS
  • 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
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium skillet. Add onion and cook until tender; add cooked, crumbled bacon and heat through.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, cream, and flour and mix well.
  3. Stir in salt, pepper, and cheese.
  4. Add onion and bacon from skillet and stir to combine.
  5. Pour into a greased 10 inch pie plate or similar sized baking dish.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 45 minutes or until golden brown and puffed up.
  7. Remove from oven; garnish with fresh minced chives.
  8. *Quiche can be eaten warm, cold, or at room temperature.
