Light and Fluffy Quiche

Posted in cooking

I made quiche for dinner tonight, after I’ve been wanting to make it for about a month now. It was my first attempt at making quiche and I’m glad to say it was a success. I was worried because I had already messed up one part of the recipe, but I managed to make it work. I used a recipe from allrecipes.com, but I tweaked it quite a bit. Instead of spinach I used broccoli and added some garlic, bacon, feta cheese and an extra egg. I also forgot, I used less mayo. The quiche had a lot of flavor and the broccoli gave it a great texture. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Here’s my tweaked version of the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli cooked & chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 strips of cooked bacon cut into bacon bits
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie shell

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  2. Sautee onions and garlic in pan until tender. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and milk until smooth. Whisk in eggs. Layer broccoli, cheese, bacon, and onion & garlic in pie shell, making several layers of each. Pour in egg mixture. Place quiche on prepared cookie sheet. Cover quiche with foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove cover, and bake 10 minutes, or until top is golden brown and filling is set.
