Have you ever craved a quiche, but thought it would be too much work to make? I have the perfect, easy quiche recipe you’ll ever make and it it created in a blender. I always double this recipe and freeze an extra or give one away.
- 1/2 stick melted butter
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (I use King Arthur white whole wheat)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 3 cups milk
- 6 eggs
Blend for 30 seconds until well incorporated. The flour settles to the bottom for a crust while baking, just like a quiche.
Pour into a 9×13 casserole or aluminum pans if you are giving away. I’ve made the blender ingredients twice for each pan below.
Add your favorite ingredients:
- Fresh or frozen broccoli
- Fresh or frozen well drained chopped spinach
- Fresh or well drained can tomatoes
- Finely chopped onion (1/4 cup)
- Cooked sausage, chopped ham, bacon or salami. Try creative dinner meats like leftover chicken, turkey, ground beef or pork.
- Fresh or well drained can mushrooms
I add whatever I have on hand in my freezer or produce drawer. It is very rare that I purchase items for this casserole. Today, I’m adding in frozen peppers and onions, chopped leaf spinach and cooked turkey bacon.
Kitchen shears work great to cut up my cooked, cooled bacon.
Top with 2 cups of your favorite shredded cheese.
- Sharp cheddar (I use most often)
- Monterey Jack
Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes until top is golden brown and sides are bubbly. Tent with foil if the top is browning too quickly. I actually got this one a tad too brown on top because it was cooking in a convection oven which bakes faster.
This can be made ahead the night before and covered until ready to bake. This makes a great brunch casserole to take to church, potluck, women’s event or meeting. I bake mine right before I leave and slip it into a insulated sack when I’m taking it to church. Sometimes I’ll divide a 9×13 into two 8×8 casseroles.
It can also be baked, cooled and frozen covered with heavy duty aluminum foil. Reheat covered at 350 for thirty minutes. Or how about baking and diving into small portions for your freezer an easy breakfast? As always, thaw 24 hours in the refrigerator before reheating. Enjoy building your own casserole. It’s a great way to use up those leftover vegetables and meats in your fridge.
I always serve or deliver my casseroles with fresh fruit.
