My Quiche Recipe

I'm trying to figure out how to list the foods that I write about, along with a link to it's recipe. In the meantime, I'll start of with my quiche recipe.....

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees

Quiche pan (mine is 9 inches in diameter, and 2 inches deep)
Pastry (to make life easy, I use the Pillsbury refridgerated pie crusts)
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups light cream
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

whisk all the above together in a bowl, you should have some bubbles on top of the mixture.

The good stuff - whichever you choose, be sure to sautee the veggies first in a bit of olive oil and salt, to get the excess water out, before putting them into the pastry lined pan. Otherwise you get a messy quiche.

1. 1/2 cup onion, 1 cup broccoli florets, and 6 oz cheddar
2. 1 pound of spinach (it shrinks quite a bit when you sautee it), onion and 6 oz mozzarella
3. 8 oz of sliced baby portobella mushroom, onion and 6 oz swiss
4. add your favorite protein, like chopped cooked bacon or cooked baby shrimp.

Pour the egg mix over the veggies and cheese, bake for 15 minutes at 425. After that, lower the temperature to 300, and cook another 40 minutes. Make sure it's golden brown on the top, and not wiggling, before you take it out of the oven. Try to wait 10 minutes to slice, and enjoy!

This sounds delicious - it is very similar to the recipe I use (and I agree- make life easier w/ store bought pastry!). I never thought to add shrimp to mine before - great idea!!!

The swiss, mushroom, onion, with bacon sounds great. I've never made quiche but will have to try it. Thanks for the great recipe.
