Baked custard pie with bottom crust and no top crust, cut into wedges and served. One of my favorite weekend breakfast to make for my family. Savory and addictive dish!
For this recipe, you can add whatever ingredients you like to the custard, vegetables, meat, and cheese (a must!). Do note that this dish takes 1 hour to BAKE. With all the preparation in hand, you will need about 90 minutes to make this dish.1 roll of Store bought frozen puff pastry 9 inches pie pan Filling ingredients 4 large eggs 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup whole milk 1 cup your favorite shredded cheese (I use parmesan cheese) pinch of salt and black pepper 1 yellow onion, halved and sliced thinly 1/2 green pepper, cut into small chunks (broccoli florets, asparagus, and oven roasted tomatoes, other vegetables that don’t contain too much liquid)
1 cup ham, cut into cubes (sausages, cooked shredded chicken and other cooked meat)
METHOD(1) If frozen puff pastry, let it thaw in refrigerator overnight. If it’s been chilled overnight, let it warm for 15 minutes at room temperature. (2) Slowly unroll the puff pastry on a 9-inch pie pan. Do not stretch the dough as it may shrink back when baked. Instead, lift the dough and let it settle into the pan. Cover the crust and chill in refrigerator until ready to bake. (3) Heat the oven to 375 F. (4) For the filling, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, milk in a bowl until smooth and combined. Set aside this liquid mixture. (5) Heat the pan to medium high. Add about 1 tbsp of olive oil. Once heated, add the sliced onion and stir fry till slightly caramelized. (6) Add green pepper and stir fry for another 2 minutes. (7) Place the bowl of liquid mixture from the step 4, and stir in the cheese gently. Season with little salt and black pepper. (8) Place the chilled crust on a baking sheet, and sprinkle the filling ingredients (ham, onion & green pepper) into the crust. (9) Gently pour the egg mixture over the filling. (10) Bake for 60 minutes until the quiche is slightly puffed and golden brown on top. (11) Cut in wedges and serve warm or in room temperature.
