quiche

Laura R.1 Comment
I made quiche this morning and added two tbsp sour cream, two tbsp salsa and one tsp of hot sauce (next time I'm doing more). It's so nice when I realize I have either all or most of the ingredients to make something I'm craving. All I had to pick up was a pie crust.

Starter quiche
1 9-inch refrigerated pie crust (I use Pillsbury)
4 eggs
1.5 cup milk or cream (I use skim milk)
1.75 cup shredded cheese (I use cheddar or a Mexican cheese blend, but swiss works too)
2 TBSP flour
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
pinch of salt

Optional add-ins
crumbled bacon or sausage
chopped spinach, bell peppers or mushrooms
salsa
sour cream
hot sauce
ground pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix eggs and milk in one bowl and flour, cheese and cayenne pepper in another (mix any add-ins in this bowl as well). Combine.

Pour quiche mixture over pie crust and bake for 50-60 min. I move mine to the lower rack after 30 minutes so the crust doesn't burn. Prick with a fork to make sure the eggs are set, and then move the quiche to a cooling rack and let it sit for an hour or two before refrigerating. 



I've been keeping on track for trying a new recipe once a week, but I'm a little embarrassed to tell you what I made last. The recipe doesn't involve any cooking skills whatsoever, but I had Simply Potatoes and almost all the other ingredients, so I thought why not? I've had it at a friend's and it was delicious. If you don't have cornflakes, don't bother. I tried using crushed saltines and it wasn't horrible, but the original recipe is much, much better!

Any recipe suggestions?
