Quiche is one of the best and tastiest ways to use up stuff you have lying around in the refrigerator, but first, to blast back to the 80's...you may have heard that "real men don't eat quiche". While clever and funny, at the time, it is just not true, because quiche is just a pie, and if there is one thing that real men eat, it's pie. So get over the fern bar, pinky lifted stereotypes and let's eat some quiche.
Basically a quiche is a baked pie crust, with some stuff thrown in the bottom, covered in egg custard and baked. Really, it's that easy. So...
See? Anything goes.
Here's how you make it.
Preheat oven to 375. Blind bake a pie shell.
Kick the temperature up to 425. Put your "filling" in the bottom of the pie shell. Mix the custard together (whisk or use the food processor) and pour over the filling in the pie shell. Unless you like cleaning your oven, put the pie plate filled with all the goodies on a baking sheet and put into the oven. Set the timer for 15 minutes and when it goes off, turn the temperature down to 350. Set the timer for 35 minutes. When the timer goes off, the quiche should be golden brown across the top and jiggle slightly, but not be uncooked in the center...how can you tell. I expect it to be fully mounded in the center, not concave or depressed. You can take the temperature if you wish...you're looking for 170-175, as it's a custard. Take it out of the oven and let it sit for at least 1/2 hour before serving.
