The Simplest Quiche Recipe
The Simplest Quiche Recipe

You'll love this easy recipe, especially if you are on a high-protein diet. It's so delicious and takes no time at all. Quiche is one of those foods that works for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. It's also great any time of year.

I make quiche in the summer and serve it with a spring mix salad on the side. In the winter, I pair it with a hearty bowl of French onion soup. Quiche is our family tradition for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter breakfast or brunch.

What Is Quiche?

Quiche is a savory, open pie crust filled with a mixture of eggs, cheese and cream. It can be made plain or you can fill it with a variety of goodies. Since it can be served hot or cold, it's a very convenient food. Some filling options include:

  • Diced ham
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Cooked shrimp
  • Asparagus

Easy Quiche Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups, half and half
  • 4 eggs, large
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled (OR 1/2 pound cooked shrimp, cut in pieces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon butter to rub on crust


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. Unfold refrigerated pie crust and place in baking dish. Smooth crust, press in bottom and up the sides, crimp around edges. Spread a little butter all over on the bottom of the crust, this keeps it from getting too soggy.
  3. Sprinkle bacon or shrimp in baking dish, and then sprinkle cheeses.
  4. In a medium bowl, use a mixer to beat eggs, half and half, pepper and sugar. Or, you can use your Nutribullet to mix these ingredients. That's what I prefer to do—it's much easier!
  5. Pour egg mixture into crust.
  6. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edge is golden brown and center is set.
  7. Cool slightly, serve and enjoy!

When baking quiche, I like to use a dish like this one that has the fluted edges. It makes it much easier to crimp the edges of your quiche crust.

All About Protein

One large egg provides approximately 6 grams of protein. Protein is found in a variety of foods, including:

  • Beans and peas
  • Dairy products
  • Eggs
  • Grains and vegetables (these generally provide less protein than is found in other sources)
  • Meats and poultry
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Seafood (fish and shellfish)
  • Soy products

You should vary your protein choices and eat at least 8 ounces of cooked seafood per week. Your meat and poultry choices should be lean or low-fat.

  • Protein provides calories, or "energy," for the body. Each gram of protein provides 4 calories.
  • Protein is a component of every cell in the human body and is necessary for proper growth and development, especially during childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy.
  • Protein helps your body build and repair cells and body tissue.
  • Protein is a major part of your skin, hair, nails, muscle, bone, and internal organs. Protein is also found in almost all body fluids.
  • Protein is important for many body processes, such as blood clotting, fluid balance, immune response, vision, and production of hormones and enzymes.
  • Protein foods are also important sources of vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins (for example, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12), choline, copper, iron, phosphorus, selenium, vitamin D, vitamin E, and zinc.

      Great recipe to make your own quiche. I would love to make my own someday, without the cayenne pepper though. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
