Mom's Quiche

Submitted by purplemb

There are approximately an infinite number of quiche ingredient combinations, but this is the one my mom always made.

Ingredients

  • 1 deep-dish pie crust (we always used frozen, but you could certainly make your own, such as Dad's Pie Crust)
  • 8 slices American cheese (or substitute 6-8 oz. of any cheese(s) of your choosing, sliced or grated)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbs flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup milk
  • 12 strips bacon
  • 10 oz frozen broccoli

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook bacon until crispy, and crumble once it is cool enough to handle.
  3. Cook broccoli and allow to cool a few minutes
  4. If using cheese slices: coat lightly with flour, stack slices, and cut into squares no bigger than about 2 cm x 2 cm. Otherwise, coat the grated cheese with the flour.
  5. Beat the eggs and milk together.
  6. Add salt and pepper. (The bacon does add a fair amount of salt, so at this point you may want to just add pepper.)
  7. Combine the egg/milk mixture and the cheese/flour mixture, and add the bacon and broccoli.
  8. Place the pie crust on a baking sheet (to catch overflow during baking) and pour everything in.
  9. Bake for 45-50 minutes. The quiche is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (The melted cheese may leave a little residue on the knife, but the knife should come out mostly clean.)

Cook's Notes

Keep an eye on the quiche while baking to make sure the crust doesn't burn. The quiche can be removed a bit early and finished off in the microwave (after slicing and removing from metal pie tin, if there is one) to avoid this problem, if necessary.
