What’s Cooking Wednesday: Quiche

59024860997__43ed4411-cfb5-4f3b-9951-17b58613bd0b

Believe it or not, I’ve never actually made a quiche before! Joe’s not a huge fan, but I am realizing how crazy my mornings/ok life are and as much as I try to meal prep or stay on top of cooking, I could use a little help!

I had a craving for some quiche after watching some YouTube videos.  I picked up my pie crusts at Aldis, they came in a pack of 2. I decided to make two different ones and see how they came out.  I wouldn’t consider these “clean” because I did use pie crusts, half & half and cheese, but you could totally lighten them up!  (Use egg whites, go crust-less & switch to a fat free milk). I really enjoy a hearty breakfast since I workout, but I’d probably make it not so rich in the future. This would be perfect for a holiday breakfast or for a bunch of people.

Spinach Mushroom Quiche

1 pie crust

1 cup of cheese (I used cheddar)

1 cup of spinach & 1 container of mushrooms

3/4 cup of milk (I used half and half)

6 eggs

Salt & pepper to taste.

Set your oven for 375 degrees.

Slice mushrooms & sauté in a pan with a little cooking spray.  Add spinach and cook until both are soft/wilted.

In a bowl stir eggs & milk — salt/pepper to taste.

Pour mushrooms/spinach into pie crust.

Top with half of the cheese.

Pour egg & milk mixture over that.

Add the rest of the cheese.

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.  I had set the timer for 45 but they were done before that!

Let it set before slicing into it. Enjoy!

Ham & Cheddar Quiche

1 pie crust

1 cup of cheese

1 cup of cooked diced up ham

3/4 cup milk (I used half & half)

6 eggs

Green onions (I just used one)

Salt & pepper to taste

Set your oven for 375 degrees.

In a bowl stir eggs & milk — salt/pepper to taste.

Pour ham & most of the cheese into pie crust.

Pour egg & milk mixture over that.

Add the rest of the cheese.

Top with green onions.

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.  (I baked the two together, so again I had set the timer for 45 but they were done before that!)

 

Do you have a favorite quiche recipe?  Please share! I want to experiment with different cheeses and such.  Bacon, prosciutto, Canadian bacon, sausage, ground turkey are all great meat ideas too!  I think this is a great way to meal prep but also use up what’s in the fridge.
