Garden Veggie Quiche Recipe Posted on 23 Aug 14:04 , 2 comments
This garden veggie quiche recipe is so versatile and delicious. You can use any veggies you're harvesting from your garden, meat or no meat, and even go with muffin tins for personal or freezer friendly meals.
This is a great way to use us veggies in your fridge or on your counter top to make room for your next harvest. I love using Kale or Spinach in quiche!
What is Quiche?
Quiche is a savory egg creation baked in a flaky pie crust shell. Though you can definitely make a crustless quiche as well!
GARDEN VEGGIE QUICHE RECIPE
1 organic pie crust (store bought or homemade) I have used the recipe from A Couple Cooks previously but for this one I used store bought
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon Salt and Pepper (adjust for personal preference)
1 cup shredded cheese, I prefer to finely grate cheese for this recipe
VEGGIES: For this particular recipe I used Kale, Onions, Peppers and Mushrooms
Meat: for this particular recipe I used cooked ground sausage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Pre-cook any meats you intend to use.
If you plan on using spinach, sautee them quickly prior to using and let sit to remove excess liquid.
Layer your ingredients into the pie crust. I like to add a thin layer of shredded cheese first them meat and veggies.
In a large bowl with a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs, whole milk, heavy cream, salt, and pepper together on high speed until completely combined, about 1 minute. Pour into crust over veggies slowly.
Bake the quiche until the center is just about set, about 45-55 minutes. Don’t over-bake.
