Easy Quiche

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder (to taste - go easy!)
  • 8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced onions
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ham, chopped
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell - deep dish!
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. I also like to pre-bake my empty pie dish for just 5 to 10 minutes, which seems to help prevent a soggy bottom on the quiche.
  2. Hand which the eggs, half-and-half, mayonnaise, and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Pour into the pie crust.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the top is golden brown.
This recipe is easy to personalize. If you want to save calories, you can switch out the half-and-half for a lighter milk. You can use swiss cheese instead of the cheddar, or try a mix of cheeses. Use whatever vegetables and meats that you have in the house, or just do a cheese and egg quiche. I've even made a taco quiche, using hamburger cooked with taco seasonings and the Mexican 4-cheese blend, topping each serving with salsa and sour cream. The only thing I would suggest you don't do is substitute Miracle Whip for the mayonnaise. (As much as I prefer Miracle Whip, that just didn't work out well.)

The original recipe was found on the Food Network and has been adapted and adopted.
