If you think Quiche is just a breakfast food, you haven't been adding the right stuff!!! It is a perfect "meal in one" lunch or dinner!!
Twenty years ago I picked up a little recipe book at a nifty tea room in Eureka Springs, The Victorian Sampler.
It has the most wonderful recipe for Quiche...actually several recipes...Mushroom, Ham, Crab, Zucchini, Seafood. But my favorite is Quiche Lorraine and the great thing about it is you can pretty much add whatever you have leftover to the "base" recipe.
The "base" consists of the following:
1 1/4 cups sour cream
Seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, garlic, tabasco, etc)
Wisk together then stir in:
1 1/2 cup swiss cheese, grated
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated (actually any "hard" cheese will do!)
Then you can add anything....mushrooms, bacon, any veggies, onions, green peppers, zucchini, spinach, leftover cooked chicken or ham, etc. Whatever trips your trigger.
I usually add 1 cup of mushrooms (sauteed in butter, garlic and onion), 6 pieces of crumbled bacon and 1 cup of chopped fresh spinach. Meal in one!!!
(I would suggest sauteing any "hard" vegetable...just long enough to make it tender!)
Pour it all in a 9" pie shell (you can lightly brown it if you like...and I use the pre-made pie shells)
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until it is set in the middle, at 350 degrees!
This is a super easy recipe and one you can throw together quickly!!
