Randy’s Quiche

My  friend Randy, who is an awesome cook (and so is his wife Sandra) makes an awesome Quiche!  I have a base recipe I use that he gave me but you can tweak it and add different things, make it healthier and add less cheese and more veggies or not.  I love this recipe because you can make it in a pie shell, without a pie shell or even mini quiche and put everything you love into it.  The recipe is very forgiving, so be creative and have fun with it!

Base Ingredients:

8 Eggs
1 Cup Sour Cream
2 Cups Monterey or Pepper Jack shred Cheese
2 Cups of  shred Cheddar Cheese (I have used half the amount of all cheese or even Weight Watcher’s shred cheese and the recipe is forgiving)
1/4 teaspoon of salt or season salt (or Mrs. Dash if you prefer)
2 drops of red Tabasco
2 cans of chopped green chiles undrained (this is the secret ingredient)

Pre-heat oven to 350
Beat everything together but the cheeses, when everything is well blended then mix the cheeses in.
At this time if you prefer to add anything else add it in now.

Some optional ingredients:

Sundried Tomatoes
Onions, green onions
mixed vegetables

Pour into an ungreased pan or pie dish with pie shell
Bake for 45 mins or until center is set
Mixture will puff up a bit.
Let cool for 5 mins

For mini quiche, use mini tart pan
Set oven to 450 degrees
make pie dough or use store bought pie shells and place shells in mini pie shapes in tart pan
Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is slightly golden

  1. the mini idea worked well with gyouza or won ton wrappers instead of pie crust.
