Three Cheese Quiche

My love affair with the humble quiche has been going on since childhood. It was one of the first recipes my mother had me make on my own. I can still picture the battered recipe card left out on the counter with a note requesting that I whip one up for dinner and pop it in the oven. Requiring little more than chopping and stirring, quiche is a recipe that anyone can master!

Most quiches start with three basic ingredients: a pie crust, heavy cream (or half and half), and eggs. From there you could go in many directions with meats, veggies, and cheeses. For today’s recipe we decided to go with a classic three cheese quiche. Who can resist some ridiculously cheesy eggs and a flaky pie crust?



1 pre-made refrigerated pie crust

6 eggs

¾ cup heavy cream

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded

½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

½ cup swiss cheese, shredded

¼ cup yellow onion, diced

2 ½ tablespoons green onions, chopped



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and remove pie crust from fridge.

Whisk the eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.

Add the cheeses and onions to the egg mixture and stir until fully combined.

Roll out pie crust and press into a 9 inch pie dish. Crimp edges with a fork if desired.

Pour the egg mixture into the prepared pie crust and bake for 38-40 minutes or until quiche is fully set in the middle.

Let cool for 8-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy warm or room temperature!
