Quiche - Easy Meal

My husband makes the best quiches. He takes a store bought deep dish pie crust. Pokes it with a fork and pre-bakes the crust according to package directions. He places aluminum foil around the edges of the pie crust so they will not over cook or burn.

He sautes 2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup chopped onion

3 tablespoons bell pepper

1/2 cup mushrooms

in a small skillet until the onions and pepper are tender.

Then he mixes 3 large eggs

8 ounces of sour cream

5 slices of crisp cooked bacon

1 1/2 cups grated Swiss cheese

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

salt and pepper

and the sauteed veggies together.

Pours into the pie crust.

Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until set.

The above information is for his regular quiche. But, for the quiche in these photos he used one can of drained spinach instead of the mushrooms and used Mexican cheese instead of Swiss and cheddar. In the past he has used cooked sausage instead of bacon. He has added jalapeno peppers instead of bell peppers. So, the bottom line is you can change the recipe to what you like to eat. This can also be refrigerated and then warmed in the microwave. This is one of the wonderful weekend meals he makes while I am blogging!
