One day out of the month at Community Bible Study we have a fellowship day. Members bring food to share. It is a special time of fun, food, and lots of talking, laughing, and praying! Last month one of our friends brought an Onion Quiche. I wasn’t a part of her group for the fellowship time but afterwards, gathered around a big counter in the kitchen, she gave me a sliver of the leftover. I didn’t know if I was just hungry at the moment or this was one special quiche. Either way, I just knew I had to make one and taste more of the wonderful flavors. She gave me a quick “I used french fried onions” from the can. That was enough to get me going!
I adore making quiche. I love eating quiche. It is so easy to make with your favorite ingredients. For this quiche I used a 9″ pie crust, Swiss cheese, French-fried onions, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and some leftover ham. The meat is optional and Cheddar or pepper-jack cheese can be added to crank this up a notch! Quiche can be made with heavy cream, half ‘n half, or a little sour cream. Those ingredients add to the overall richness and are wonderful. Feel free to sub in a little of the creams for the milk, if you wish. For this quiche I used 2% milk and it was still wonderful.
We ate this as a supper meal with a fresh green salad. Voilà’ — dinner is served. This very same quiche is equally good for breakfast. With Mother’s Day just around the corner quiche fits in superbly for a special brunch!
Happy Cooking! Catherine
