Quick and Easy Quiche

  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 pinches kosher salt
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 frozen 9-inch pie crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a nonreactive, stainless steel bowl, combine the half-and-half and the eggs. Whisk until combined thoroughly. Add the salt and the nutmeg. Whisk to combine and make a royale.

Choose and evenly distribute the pie fillings in the pie crust. Some great choices include:

  • blanched asparagus and goat cheese
  • crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese
  • sautéed mushrooms and gouda

Do not overfill the crust with the filling ingredients.

Carefully pour the royale into the crust, leaving some room at the top of the crust. The eggs will expand upon cooking. Bake the pie until it is firm to the touch like set Jell-O, about 45 minutes. Cool the pie for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

  • Yields: 4 servings
