How to make vegetable quiche

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2.  Place unbaked pie shell in a square 8×8 baking dish or in 9-inch pie plate. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a non-stick frying pan and sauté onions and mushrooms (optional) or any vegetable you decide to add and cook until soft.  Add to the bottom of the pie shell.
  4. Sprinkle cheeses on top.
  5.  In a bowl, beat eggs; add half and half, add garlic salt & thyme and whisk well.
  6.  Pour egg mixture into pie shell and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.
  7.  Serve warm or cold. A nice green side salad goes great for brunch, lunch or dinner.

What to use instead of cream

If you want to make this a healthy veggie quiche, then you can skip the heavy cream and still have a fluffy and creamy quiche. I like to use half and half as a substitute because I normally do not have heavy cream in the fridge at all times.

Can this be a crustless vegetable quiche

Absolutely! If you want to make this a crustless quiche you can omit the pie crust all together. Be sure to grease your pan with a brush of oil or butter so that the quiche does not stick when removing from the pan. Bake quiche the same amount of time so that the egg mixture sets properly.

Can you freeze quiche

Yes! This quiche freezes really well, so make two while you're at it! Enjoy one now and freeze one for later. When quiche has cooled completely, cover with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil.

Place in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat frozen quiche, place in a preheated 350-degree oven and bake for 20-30 minutes.
