Basic Quiche This quiche calls for store-bought frozen piecrust, which is a wonderful time-saver. Simply fill the piecrust with a mixture of sautéed yellow onions, fresh parsley, half and half, and cheese. A sprinkle of ground nutmeg adds a little sweetness and brings all the flavors together.

Recipe Ingredients for Basic Quiche

4 medium Egg, Whole
2 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
3/4 cup Cream, Fluid, Half And Half
3/4 cup Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Italian Shredded Cheese
1 crust, single 9" Pie Crust, Standard-type
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Basic Quiche

  1. Heat oven to 375° F.

  2. In a large skillet, over medium-low heat, heat the oil. Add the onions, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cover and cook until the onions are softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the parsley and cook, covered, for 2 minutes more.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and half-and-half. Stir in the Gruyère, nutmeg, the remaining salt and pepper, and the onion mixture.

  4. Place the piecrust on a foil-lined baking sheet. Scrape the egg mixture into the piecrust; it will be very full. Bake until the filling is set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve.

  5. Tip: Tailor this quiche to your liking by stirring in a handful of chopped cooked ham or sauteed vegetables when you add the cheese.
