I always love making quiche. With ingredients like eggs, cheese and cream baked in a flaky pastry crust, who wouldn't like making quiche? And on a skill level scale with one being the easiest, quiche would probably be around a 2 or a 3!
Another great plus for the quiche is that you can add other ingredients to it willy-nilly style. A basic quiche starts out with eggs and cream. After that, you can throw in some asparagus or mushrooms. Some other great add-in's are bacon, pancetta and of course cheese.
If you do decide to build your own quiche, just remember that the extra ingredients will be around 1/2 to 1 cup in volume. You don't want to overfill the tart shell and have it pouring out onto your baking tray. Yup I can speak from experience.
I really wanted this to be a breakfast post and originally was planning to make some kind of loaded breakfast burrito. As awesomely tasty as that sounds, trying to photograph that is not something I was looking forward to. The next best thing is to chuck all of that burrito filling into a tart shell and call it a quiche.
Potatoes, shallots, bell pepper, bacon and sharp cheddar cheese just hanging together getting all melty. Finally if you want to save some time, you could use a frozen pie shell. The baking time might be a little longer if it's a deep dish shell. The center should be soft but firm to the touch. Press it gently and if it springs back up, then it should be done.
