This easy quiche is one of my go to recipes, because it takes me no time to prepare, everyone loves it and I generally have the necessary ingredients in the house. Eggs are a staple around here and I always have a frozen pie shell at the ready. I could make my own ~ well, let me rephrase that ~you could make your own, if you prefer, but I like quick and easy so frozen fits the bill!
There's no real "recipe" here. As usual, when it comes to cooking, I like to provide you with more of a guideline. It's mainly because I am a wing it kind of chef, so I don't really know the precise measurements, but that's ok, especially with quiche.
Here's what I do:
I add eggs (4- 6)
A dash of milk (about a 1/4 cup)
A large handful of shredded cheese or several slices of cheese torn up ~ sometimes, I add several different cheeses, whatever I have in the fridge
A large handful of frozen, chopped broccoli. I do usually throw it in the microwave for about one minute to soften it up a tad, but it's still mostly frozen. Lazy...remember?
Scramble it all together and pour it in the shell.
That's it. Then I toss them in the oven for about 30- 45 minutes on 350 degrees.
Now, I have an "absolutely no broccoli" child in my house, so I make one with it and one without. A plain cheese quiche is just as tasty.
However, if I have leftover hamburger I toss a handful in, sometimes I add leftover potatoes...whatever I have around. Quiche is one of those great "garbage pail" kind of meals. The list of tasty items you could add is virtually endless...cold cuts, bacon, vegetables, seafood. If you think it would taste good in an omelet, it's good in quiche.
Once it comes out of the oven, I serve it up with a salad and maybe some rice or mashed potatoes on the side.
Then dinner is done and I can relax...until tomorrow afternoon when I have to start thinking about it again. Ugh. I really need to start meal planning. Or hire a chef.
Yeah. That's not going to happen.
