{The Perfect} Quiche

I love quiche!  It's so great for breakfast or dinner and there are so many different meat and veggie combinations you can create.  This recipe is a little more of a formula then an exact recipe.  You can play around with the types of cheese, meat and veggies you use to find your perfect match.  It's a great way to use up leftover meats and veggies too.  Some of our favorite meats are ham, turkey, bacon and sausage.  Favorite veggies include mushrooms, spinach, onion, peppers and broccoli.  Mix and match and have fun!  You can make your pie crust or use a store bought one.  Either way, it's the perfect way to start or end your day!

9 inch uncooked pie crust
3 eggs
1 cup of milk (or half and half)
2 cups shredded cheese
1 cup cooked meat
1 cup veggies, cooked and drained (if using fresh veggies, microwave for a few minutes to soften)
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450.  Bake pie crust for 5-6 minutes.  Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 375.  Meanwhile, combine eggs, milk, cheese, meat and veggies.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour egg mixture into partially cooked pie crust.  Bake at 375 for 50 minutes.  Remove from oven and let it set for 5-10 minutes, until set.
