Mediterranean Quiche

I decided to start adding recipes to my blog and in the future will add how to tips like making jam and canning, that will come as the seasons permit. For now I'm starting with quiche. I hosted a party yesterday in my home and decided a quiche would be nice. When I went to my favorite grocery for a few things I thought I'd just check out what they had in stock. A frozen quiche was almost $9 before tax! I quickly went through my pantry items in my head and realized I had enough ingredients in stock to make my own. All I needed was some cheese. So I picked up a package of crumbled goat cheese for $2 and headed home.

I started with a basic quiche recipe and added veggies from there. Since I had hummus, pita chips and grapes already I thought a Mediterranean theme would work well. The girls liked the quiche so since it went over well I thought I'd post the recipe. Sorry for lack of measurements, most of my cooking is done this way. If you try it out let me know what you think! I hope you enjoy!

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbls flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup real mayo
  • sea salt, fresh ground pepper
  • crumbled goat cheese
  • kalamata olives, packed in olive oil, sliced
  • marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
  • red, yellow, green peppers, diced (Trader Joe's carries these in their frozen food section, great price and they are always ready in your freezer)
  • onion, finely chopped
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease quiche pan (or any glass pie plate) with unsalted butter. Set aside.
  • Whisk eggs; add milk, flour, cream, dash of S&P and mayo. Blend well and pour into pan.
  • Add sliced olives, artichoke hearts, peppers, onion. Top with crumbled goat cheese.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes. Make sure it is done but not over cooked. Should have a nice bubbly, brown crust.
That's it! The veggies and cheese are to your own preference. You will see there is NO crust. As much as I love a good crust this eliminates a lot of calories! If you're not a fan of these ingredients you can start with the basic quiche recipe and then add whatever you like to it. Enjoy!
