101 Ways to Eat Eggs :: Perfect Quiche


Here’s a recipe for quiche I use all the time without fail. No matter if I make it with ham, or bacon, or even vegetarian, it always tastes fantastic. This may seem like a very general recipe, but that gives you the freedom to use your favorites.

Perfect Quiche
makes two 9″ quiche; serves 12 (each quiche serves 6)

8 large eggs
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion (green onions or maybe even caramelized yellow onions)
1 1/2 cups cooked bacon (or cubed ham or cooked mushrooms)
3 cups grated cheese
1/4 cup cilantro (optional)

Start with your favorite pie crust recipe or be a cheater like me and buy those two-packs of frozen pie crusts. Cover crusts with foil and bake at 450*F for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake until dry. Remove crusts from oven. Adjust oven temperature to 350*F.

In a large bowl, mix thoroughly: eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and flour. Pour half of the mixture into each pie crust. Sprinkle in half of the cheese divided between the two crusts. Layer on top meat/mushrooms, onions, and the rest of the cheese. Top it all off with a little cilantro.

Bake both quiche together at 350*F for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
