Quiche is the quintessential quick meal. (How often can you use a "QU" word three times in the same sentence?) It's extremely versatile & can be padded with last night's leftovers.

4 eggs
1 1/4 cup whole milk
unbaked pie crust
1/4 tsp. salt
anything else you like (think veggies, cheese, cooked meat)

Line a baking dish with the unbaked pie crust. (1 minute hands-on prep)
In a separate bowl, add milk & salt to beaten eggs. You can use an electric mixer or just a fork, if you prefer. (2 minutes hands-on prep)
Stir in your additions. One of my favorites is sharp cheddar cheese, shredded or in chunks, a handful of spinach, & chopped onion and/or chives. (5 minutes hands-on prep, leaving time for chopping)
Bake in a 375 oven for 30-45 minutes or until middle is firm & a knife comes out clean.

Try different combinations for a breakfast quiche or a dinner quiche. Try a crustless quiche or an unconventional crust, like a tortilla, cheese, or sticky cooked rice.

Serving Suggestions
For dinner, we enjoy serving quiche with a salad or by itself with a nourishing dessert, like real strawberry shortcake or honey baked cinnamon apples.
