Quiche Simplified

Quiche, such an exotic word.  Sounds complicated doesn't it...baking a Quiche.  Well, it doesn't have to be complicated at all!  This is my very simple, very uncomplicated, very basic Quiche recipe.

Tomato, Avocado, Herbs

Mix together 8-10 eggs, 1-2 cups cheese, 1/2 cup milk and a pinch each of salt and pepper.

Yep, that's it.  Now, if you want to make it a little more complicated, add

1 chopped, fresh tomato
1 chopped, fresh avocado
1/2 cup or more Fresh Herbs

You can increase or decrease these ingredients to your liking.
The more filling you add, the lessor amount of eggs you'll need.  
Keep in mind you should always have a minimum of 8 eggs.

Here's how to build it...

Preheat oven to 350
Grease dish with butter (I prefer ceramic dishes).
Add filling ingredients.
Pour egg mixture on top of filling.  Pat down any areas that are not covered by the egg mixture.
Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven.

That's it!  You're done!  Quiche Simplified.  Quiche is subjective -  you can add any of your favorite fillings to the basic recipe, or none at all.  It can be as simple or as complicated as you want.
If the knife comes out clean, it's done!

From my Garden
Thai Basil, Basil, 

I use a TON of fresh herbs, mainly from my garden.  I found this awesome little herb grinder, AR+Cook in HomeGoods.  Put the herbs in, push down and twist the top.  Nicely chopped herbs come out the bottom!  I'll admit, I spend alot of time in the Kitchen and I do love my gadgets!

  1. Yum, I love quiche, this sounds delicious, especially with all the fresh herbs! Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend?!

    1. Thanks Joy! Using the fresh herbs makes a real difference in the taste. My next step is to figure out how to grow them inside during the cold months.

  2. This looks good and perhaps something I could reheat making mornings move faster. I'm always in a hurry to get outside this time of year before the temperatures rise. Fresh herbs are the best, I love adding them to everything.

    1. Thanks Carole! Absolutely, you can reheat this or eat it cold. We do it all the time. If I have enough eggs on hand, I will make 2 because the first one is usually gone shortly after it leaves the oven.

  3. Thanks for sharing on the Healthy Living Link Party.

  4. Simple but delicious and healthy. I love how you can do so many different things with it. My favorite is using a veggie crust with it for double the veggies. Thanks for linking up at Healthy Living Link Party.

    1. Love the veggie crust idea! I usually just look around and see what veggies are handy and go from there :)

  5. Thank you for the simple recipe!! We made ours with a pre-made refrigerated pie crust and it came out delish!
