Green House Quiche

One of our favorite go to recipes is quiche!  It is the kind of dish that can be serves for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and it is a super simple dish to make.  Quiches are great to take to a pot luck and you can put pretty much any vegetables you have on hand in them.  We always make sure to have pie crusts in the fridge because when you are in a pinch, quiche is the perfect meal to make!  One of our favorites is this broccoli cheddar quiche because it is so delicious and full of hearty ingredients.

  • 1 homemade or store-bought single-crust pie dough
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream 
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbs dijon mustard
  • 2 cups medium diced yellow onion (from 1 large onion) 
  • 1 1/2 cups of diced vegetables
  • 3/4 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (4 ounces)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out dough to a 12-inch round. Place in a 9-inch pie plate, fold overhang under, and crimp edge. Place a sheet of parchment paper over dough and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until edge is dry and light golden, about 20 minutes. Remove parchment and weights.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high. Add onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and cream. Add onion, bacon, and cheese and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Whisk to combine, pour into crust, and bake until center of quiche is just set, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
