I am going to share the "basic" quiche recipe. I love a "Quiche Bleu" filled with crispy bacon (1/2 cup), red onions (1/4 cup), blue cheese (1/4 cup), and a sprinkle of fresh tomatoes on the top.
Basic Quiche From Julia Child
3 large eggs, beaten in a measuring cup
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of nutmeg and pepper
about 1/2 cup cream-- enough to fill the measuring cup with eggs to 1 1/4 cup
1 cup Filling ingredients... bacon, ham, onions, cheese, veggies
1 8 or 9-inch prepared pie crust
Pre-heat the oven to 375.
Whip the eggs together. Add salt, nutmeg, pepper and cream to make 1 1/4 cups fluid. Toss desired filling in the pie crust. Pour the liquid on top stopping 1/4 inch from the top of the pie crust. Place quiche pan on a cookie sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes. When the quiche has doubled in size and is nicely brown it is done. Need to double check? A skewer should come out clean. If if has bits of custard on it bake another 3-4 minutes.
