Good morning, all. I have it in my little brain that I'd like to try to make a quiche. Anybody have some good ideas or suggestions? I'm looking for something with good veggies in it like asparagus, onions, peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, would summer squash or zuchinni work? I'm assuming they'd have to be semi-cooked. Any combination, with or without meat, but preferably without bacon. Do you bake the shell first?

I've looked in my cookbooks, but some say bake the shell, some don't. Most of them just talk about Quiche Lorraine.

Thanks. I'm sure this crew will come up with some good ones.

nomoresnow, I really love spinach quiche and Quiche Lorraine. But it's been so long since I made it, mainly because my bf didn't care for it!! I used to blind bake the shells at least halfway before filling them. Just my preference. Here's a link to the FN site's quiche recipes:

Thanks, Asta. I was going to do a search yesterday, but the storms in the area wouldn't let me. I'll check those out. Appreciate your help.

I use the recipe from the old 'Enchanted Broccoli Forest' cookbook. I don't bake the shell first.

You can use almost any vegetable for the filling. I like sauteed onions or mushrooms.

For the custard I use 3 eggs beaten with 1 cup milk.

So you prepare the crust. Grate some cheese and put it in the shell. Put in your vegetables, pour in the eggs and milk and bake.

Thank you, Ellise. sounds simple and good, too. I did some surfing and used Asta's link. I think these, along with some ideas I stole from different cookbooks, will help.

One of my favourite is Crab quiche. Delicious in summer with a green salad with walnuts.

I also love Onion tart, not quite a quiche but gorgeous nonetheless :

NMS I went thru the same craving about a week or so ago! I had never made a quiche and shopped thru lots of recipes....i ended up using fresh Maine crab, sauted onions in some bacon..... and cheddar cheese. I did use a Pillsbury pie crust and half baked it (very lightly browned) and cooled it before filling it. I used light cream and 3 eggs. It was delicious, but was really more delicious and flavorful the next day, re heated in the micro wave.

Mooseketeer, thanks for the suggestions. I like the sound of that onion tart. Eipcurious does some good stuff.

Elston. Thanks. That sounds good, too. And it sounds so easy. Don't you just love those Pillsbury pie crusts? I've done harder stuff than this. I can do it, I can do it!

First, tho, I have to use up some of the stuff in the freezer.

Default Quiche

I love quiche, I am a man but when I cook it there is always excess moisture I have to drain off once cooked.

Does anyone have the answer as to how to make the fluid less? for 2 thin pies I use 4-5 eggs and milk for the fluid. I use herbs, and fill the shell with my favorite fillings then pour the fluid on top....

They are good but when i cut the first piece out I can prop it up and water runs out...

How do you make a dry quiche?
