Ingredients

  • 5 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk (any type or combination will work. I use a mixture of skim milk and half and half.)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese shredded
  • ½ cup bacon or turkey bacon. crumbled
  • ½ cup roma tomatoes diced
  • 1/4 cup basil fresh, stacked, rolled and cut into thin strips
  • 1 whole wheat pie crust 9 inch, preferably whole wheat

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine eggs, milk, salt, pepper and cheese in a bowl.
  • Fold bacon, tomatoes and basil into the egg mixture.
  • Pour quiche mixture into a pie crust.
  • Using a fork, evenly distribute ingredients.
  • Bake quiche uncovered for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. The top should be lightly browned and the quiche will continue to set after removed from the oven.
  • Allow quiche to sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting.

Notes

Quiche can be frozen before or after cooking. Before cooking add all of the ingredients (except for pie crust) to a plastic bag that seals. Store in freezer. When ready to cook, defrost in the refrigerator, pour mixture into pie crust and cook as directed. After cooking, wrap slices with plastic wrap and place in freezer. Slices can be re-heated in the microwave or oven.
Omit the pie crust and make this a crustless quiche!
