Easy Cheese Quiche

Quiche is very easy to make and very tasty. My kids do not care for it but it is one of my favorites.Once a month, I try a new quiche or make one of my favorites.

I prefer to use my own homemade crust but when I am in a pinch for time, I have been known to use a refrigerated pie crust or a frozen pie crust from the store. Either option works for making the quiche.

I used a sharp cheddar cheese for this recipe. A mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheese also makes a tasty quiche.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, diced and chilled
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Cold Water
  1. Combine the flour and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add the diced butter and using a fork, cut the butter into the flour until little balls form.
  3. Add in the cold water and mix until a dough begins to form. Using clean hands, finish mixing the dough until a round ball forms.
  4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to form your pie crust.

Frugal Cooking Tips:

  • Easy Cheese Quiche is a basic quiche recipe. Use leftover chopped ham, or bacon or even a little chopped veggies in the quiche.
  • Have just a little leftover bacon, ham or sausage? Store excess in a freezer bag and use this for morning eggs. Make an omelet or just scrambled eggs with the extras mixed in.
