Basic Quiche

This is my favorite recipe so far! Also from Real Simply. I added ham, extra spinach, and extra carrots. We used parmesan and mozzerella cheese instead of the Gruyere. Yummy!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, diced
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 8 ounces Gruyere, grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 store-bought frozen piecrust in a tin
  • 1Heat oven to 375° F.
  • 2In a large skillet, over medium-low heat, heat the oil. Add the onions, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cover and cook until the onions are softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the parsley and cook, covered, for 2 minutes more.
  • 3Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and half-and-half. Stir in the Gruyère, nutmeg, the remaining salt and pepper, and the onion mixture.
  • 4Place the piecrust on a foil-lined baking sheet. Scrape the egg mixture into the piecrust; it will be very full. Bake until the filling is set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve
