- 1 pie crust
- 5 large eggs

- ¾ cup milk (**read all notes on ratios)
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- fillings of choice
Prepare Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll pie crust out and fit into 9 inch pie dish. Trim any excess crust and flute the edges.
Blind Bake Crust: Line the inside of the pie crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or beans (I use pinto beans) make sure that they are up against the sides of the pie crust. Bake the crust for about 20 minutes. Remove the weights and then bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. The crust will be golden.
Prepare the egg mixture: add the eggs to a large measuring cup. Add the heavy cream, then add the milk, the total measurement of the eggs, cream and milk should come to 2 and 1/2 cups. Add the salt and pepper.
Mix: use a hand mixer, or whisk vigorously, to ensure the egg and cream mixture is completely mixed.
Add Fillings: Spread the desired fillings on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg mixture on top.
Bake: Bake the quiche at 350℉ degrees for about 45-50 minutes. The quiche will be slightly wobbly in just the center.
Cool: Allow to cool for about 20 minutes to room temperature. Quiche can be served warm, cold, or room temperature.
- Ratio: Using 5 eggs you should have a total of 2 and 1/2 cups of liquid with the eggs, milk and cream.
- Nutrition Info: has the crust and egg included. You will need to adjust with the fillings you choose.
