We love Quiche in our family. It's easy to make, yummy and you can put all those things that your children don't eat when you put them by themselves on a plate.

Here is a basic recipe I got from Mom and I made it today for lunch. Hope you enjoy it!


2 frozen deep pie shells
5 eggs
1/2 cup half & half
salt & pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup heavy whip cream
1 tsp flour
1/4 cup water
1 cup cheese (I usually use mozzarella and provolone)
1/4 cup onion (cut finely in cubes)
1 1/2 tsp. of favorite herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, etc)
4 slices oven roasted turkey cut in cubes
1 tomato chopped in cubes
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella and mild cheddar)
2 hands full of fresh spinach washed and cut into small chunks


Start by heating your oven at 325ºF. Don't forget to divide the ingredients between the two pie shells. In a mixing bowl combine half and half, heavy whip cream, water, salt, pepper and flour until incorporated. Set aside. Get the shells out of the freezer and sprinkle the first cup of cheese on base of the shell. Add the onions and the herbs of your preference. Then add the turkey, tomato and the extra cheese. Finally, pour the egg mixture on top of the shells.

Set the pie shells on top of a cookie sheet (to prevent spills inside of your oven).

Bake at 325ºF for one hour.
