Description

Inspired by the flavors of the Mediterranean, this Greek Style Quiche makes a great dish for brunch or a casual dinner. Featuring a flaky, homemade pie crust, fresh vegetables, and two kinds of cheese, this quiche can be served as a complete meal or alongside breakfast potatoes and fresh fruit…

If you've never made quiche before, this is a good introduction. Put simply, it's an egg and cheese pie with various vegetables mixed in. The hardest part of making it is the crust, but don't let it scare you; it's not difficult and even you mess it up, crust is very forgiving.

Quiche Recipe Variations

Depending on your tastes and dietary preferences, there are several ways you can modify this recipe. Here are a just a few options to consider:

Make It A Crustless Quiche: To cut down on time (and carbs!) you can easily eliminate the crust and make it a frittata instead. Simply grease a glass pie plate so the egg mixture doesn't stick to the bottom.

Use A Frozen Pie Crust: You can use a store-bought frozen crust as a substitute for a homemade crust. The instructions for the filling will remain the same.

Mix Up The Ingredients: If you're not into feta, you can easily use sharp cheddar cheese or swiss cheese instead. Similarly, if you don't like asparagus and tomatoes, you can throw in spinach and green onions as your veggies.

Use Half-And-Half Instead Of Milk: To make your quiche extra creamy, consider substituting half-and-half or heavy cream for the milk.

Tips for Making this Easy Quiche Recipe

Don’t let the list of ingredients fool you — this quiche is actually incredibly easy to prepare. However, here are a few tricks that can make this recipe foolproof:

Protect The Crust: Use strips of aluminum to cover the edge of the crust as it bakes. The edges cook first and can end up burnt if you don't protect them.

Slightly Undercook The Vegetables: Remember that the vegetables will be cooked twice, so when you saute vegetables in the skillet, make sure they're slightly undercooked so they don't get overcooked in the oven.

Use A Baking Sheet: Just in case the egg mixture bubbles over in the oven, place the quiche on a baking sheet. It will help keep your oven clean.

    this was my first time making a pie crust and the recipe is super simple and easy to follow, resulting in deliciously flaky, buttery goodness. the remainder of the quiche is as good, if not better than the crust!!! My only additional recommendation is to adjust the egg/milk mixture accordingly to ensure your filings are covered, otherwise they could burn.
