Simple Quiche recipe
Making quiche for a weeknight dinner may sound overwhelming, but it truly is an easy meal to assemble. It just takes time to bake.
The key to making this recipe easy is to buy pre-shredded cheese and a pre-made pie shell. Honestly, there's no need to shred your own cheese or be making your own pie crust on a Monday night!
This recipe calls for sliced zucchini and diced roasted red bell pepper, but the fun thing about making a quiche is you can use any veggie of choice. Sautéed spinach, crispy bacon pieces, diced ham, chopped basil, sliced tomatoes, or cooked prosciutto are just a few ideas.
You can also use any cheese. While this recipe calls for shredded swiss, you can use cheddar, gruyere, feta, goat cheese, or more. The options are endless. You also don't have to stay super strict with the amounts of cheese. If you have leftover parmesan, then use that. It's okay if you use a little more or a little less. Overall, the quiche will come out tasting delicious.
This weeknight quiche is quick to put together, cheesy and studded with vegetables.
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese I often use swiss but gruyere or cheddar are very tasty too. If you buy the bag with 2 cups shredded cheese, you can use the whole bag.
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 5 eggs
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 small zucchini thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup roasted red peppers diced
- ¼ tsp salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a greased 9 inch pie baking sheet, place pie crust. You may need to manipulate the pie crust so the sides are pushed up. They don’t have to go to the very top of the pie dish, just as high as you can get them without the dough ripping.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the sour cream, shredded cheese, zucchini slices, diced roasted red bell peppers, eggs, salt, pepper and flour.
- Pour into pie shell. You may need to take a fork or your fingers and make sure the zucchini and cheese is spread out evenly.
Top with parmesan cheese.
Bake on the lower 1/3 of the oven. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower temperature to 350 degrees and continue cooking for 25-30 minutes or until a knife can be inserted and it comes out clean.
- If the top becomes too brown, cover with foil.
